Abstract

Purpose

This study aims to construct a mathematical model to study the dispersion analysis of magneto-electro elastic plate of arbitrary cross sections immersed in fluid by using the Fourier expansion collocation method (FECM).

Design/methodology/approach

The analytical formulation of the problem is designed and developed using three-dimensional linear elasticity theories. As the inner and outer boundaries of the arbitrary cross-sectional plate are irregular, the frequency equations are obtained from the arbitrary cross-sectional boundary conditions by using FECM. The roots of the frequency equation are obtained using the secant method, which is applicable for complex solutions.

Findings

The computed physical quantities such as radial stress, hoop strain, non-dimensional frequency, magnetic potential and electric potential are plotted in the form of dispersion curves, and their characteristics are discussed. To study the convergence, the non-dimensional wave numbers of longitudinal modes of arbitrary (elliptic and cardioid) cross-sectional plates are obtained using FECM and finite element method and are presented in a tabular form. This result can be applied for optimum design of composite plates with arbitrary cross sections.

Originality/value

This paper contributes the analytical model for the role of arbitrary cross-sectional boundary conditions and impact of fluid loading on the dispersion analysis of magneto-electro elastic plate. From the graphical patterns of the structure, the effects of stress, strain, magnetic, electric potential and the surrounding fluid on the various considered wave characteristics are more significant and dominant in the cardioid cross sections. Also, the aspect ratio (a/b) and the geometry parameters of elliptic and cardioids cross sections are significant to the industry or other fields that require more flexibility in design of materials with arbitrary cross sections.

Abstract

The issues of development of decisions are very important during formation of the system of management of modern business systems in the conditions of turbulence of external conditions. The ideas of rational structuring of information flows, which are used for decision making, are related to the necessity for development of communicative culture of companies. Quality of interaction between persons that participate in decision making should be assessed by analyzing the ratio of probabilities that characterize quality of information and correctness of decisions and development of a special model.

Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this paper is to make multivariable gray model to be available for the application on interval gray number sequences directly, the matrix form of interval multivariable gray model (IMGM(1,m,k) model) is constructed to simulate and forecast original interval gray number sequences in this paper.

Design/methodology/approach

Firstly, the interval gray number is regarded as a three-dimensional column vector, and the parameters of multivariable gray model are expressed in matrix form. Based on the dynamic gray action and optimized background value, the interval multivariable gray model is constructed. Finally, two examples and comparisons are carried out to verify the effectiveness of IMGM(1,m,k) model.

Findings

The model is applied to simulate and predict expert value, foreign direct investment, automobile sales and steel output, respectively. The results show that the proposed model has better simulation and prediction performance than another two models.

Practical implications

Due to the uncertainty information and continuous changing of reality, the interval gray numbers are used to characterize full information of original data. And the IMGM(1,m,k) model not only considers the characteristics of parameters changing with time but also takes into account information on lower, middle and upper bounds of interval gray numbers simultaneously to make better suitable for practical application.

Originality/value

The main contribution of this paper is to propose a new interval multivariable gray model, which considers the interaction between the lower, middle and upper bounds of interval numbers and need not to transform interval gray number sequences into real sequences. According to combining different characteristics of each bound of interval gray numbers, the matrix form of interval multivariable gray model is established to simulate and forecast interval gray numbers. In addition, the model introduces dynamic gray action to reflect the changes of parameters over time. Instead of white equation of classic MGM(1,m), the difference equation is directly used to solve the simulated and predicted values.

Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this paper is to present a new methodology, used for dynamic reliability analysis of a gear transmission system (GTS) of wind turbine (WT), which could be used for assembly decision-making of the parts with errors to improve the GTS’s performance.

Design/methodology/approach

This paper involves the dynamic and dynamic reliability analysis of a GTS. The history curves of dynamic responses of the parts are obtained with the developed gear-bearing coupling dynamic model considering the random errors, failure dependency and random load. Then, the surrogate models of the mean and standard deviation of responses are presented by statistics, rain flow counting method and corrected-partial least squares regression response surface method. Further, a novel dynamic reliability model based on the maximum extreme theory, a theory of sequential statistics, equivalent principles and the inverse transform theory of random variable sampling, is developed to overcome the limitations of traditional methods.

Findings

The dynamic reliability of GTS considering the different impact factors are evaluated. The proposed reliability methodology not only overcomes the limitations associated with traditional approaches but also provides good guidance to assembly the parts in a GTS to its best performance.

Originality/value

Instead of constant errors, this paper considers the randomness of the impact factors to develop the dynamic reliability model. Further, instead of the limitation of the normal distribution of the random parameters in the traditional method, the proposed methodology can deal with the problems with non-normal distribution parameters, which is more suitable for the real engineering problems.
