NEW APPLIED MECHANICS STUDY RESULTS REPORTED FROM D. HASANYAN ET AL
July 22, 2008
According to a study from Yerevan, Armenia, "The problem of elastic
stress and magnetic field concentration near the vertex of a compound
wedge is modeled and investigated. The wedge is made of two isotropic
dielectric soft-ferromagnetic materials and is immersed in a static
"The technique of eigenfunction series expansion is applied on the
components of the elastic displacement field and the induced magnetic
potentials near the vertex. It is shown that in this region, the
magnetic susceptibility and the applied magnetic field have a strong
influence on the elastic stress and magnetic field concentration,"
wrote D. Hasanyan and colleagues (see also Applied Mechanics).
The researchers concluded: "The results are instrumental toward
actively controlling the stress concentration intensity via the
applied magnetic field."
Hasanyan and colleagues published the results of their research
in the Journal of Applied Mechanics – Transactions of the ASME
(Elastic stress and magnetic field concentration near the vertex of a
soft-ferromagnetic 2D compound wedge. Journal of Applied Mechanics –
Transactions of the ASME, 2008;75(4):41013).
