2018 # Nonlinear buckling of CNT-reinforced composite toroidal shell segment surrounded by an elastic medium and subjected to uniform external pressure

**Abstract:** Buckling and postbuckling behaviors of Toroidal Shell Segment (TSS) reinforced by single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNT), surrounded by an elastic medium and subjected to uniform external pressure are investigated in this paper. Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) are reinforced into matrix phase by uniform distribution (UD) or functionally graded (FG) distribution along the thickness direction. Effective properties of carbon nanotube reinforced composite (CNTRC) are estimated by an extended rule of mixture through a micr…

“…The temperature dependent properties of the (10, 10) SWCNTs are given at discrete values of temperature in works [14,19,30] and as continuous functions of temperature in the work [23] and are omitted here for sake of brevity. The CNT efficiency parameters η j (j = 1 ÷ 3) are estimated by matching the Young moduli E 11 , E 22 and shear modulus G 12 of the CNTRC determined from the extended rule of mixture to those from the molecular dynamics (MD) simulations and given in the works [14,23,30,39,40] as (η 1 , η 2 , η 3 ) = (0.137, 1.022, 0.715) for case of V * CNT = 0.12, (η 1 , η 2 , η 3 ) = (0.142, 1.626, 1.138) for case of V * CNT = 0.17 and (η 1 , η 2 , η 3 ) = (0.141, 1.585, 1.109) for case of V * CNT = 0.28.…”

“…The idea of optimal distribution of CNTs motivates the concept of functionally graded carbon nanotube reinforced composite (FG-CNTRC) [3] in which CNTs are embedded into the matrix in such a way that their volume is varied in the thickness direction of structure according to functional rules. Shen's propositional work [3] stimulated subsequent investigations on the static and dynamic responses of FG-CNTRC structures [4][5][6][7][8][9][10][11][12][13]. Based on a higher order shear deformation theory (HSDT) and a twostep perturbation approach, Shen and coworkers [14][15][16] investigated the postbuckling of pressure-loaded doubly curved panels made of functionally graded (FG) material, CNTRC and graphene-reinforced composite (GRC).…”

“…Zghal et al [8] used finite element method to analyze the mechanical buckling behavior of plates and cylindrical panels made of FGM and FG-CNTRC with various boundary conditions. An analytical study of the buckling and postbuckling of simply supported FG-CNTRC toroidal shell segments under external pressure is presented by Tung and Hieu [9] making use of classical shell theory (CST) and thee-term form of deflection. A linear buckling analysis of FG-CNTRC truncated conical shells under lateral pressure was presented by Jam and Kiani [10] employing first order shear deformation theory (FSDT) and differential quadrature method (DQM).…”
