Ustrzycka A., Szuwalski K.^{♦}, Annular rotating disks optimal with respect to mixed creep rupture,
JOURNAL OF THEORETICAL AND APPLIED MECHANICS, ISSN: 1429-2955, DOI: 10.15632/jtam-pl.56.1.57, Vol.56, No.1, pp.57-69, 2018Abstract: Optimal shapes in the class of polynomial functions for rotating annular disks with respect to the mixed creep rupture time are found. Two effects leading to damage: diminishing of transversal dimensions and growth of micro-cracks are simultaneously taken into account. The first of them requires the finite strain analysis, the latter is described by Kachanov's evolution equation. Behaviour of the material is described by nonlinear Norton's law, generalized for true stresses and logarithmic strains, and the shape change law in form of similarity of true stresses and logarithmic strains deviators. For optimal shapes of the disk, changes of geometry and a continuity function are presented. The theoretical considerations based on the perception of the structural components as some highlighted objects with defined properties is presented Keywords: annular disk, mixed creep rupture, optimal design Affiliations:

Szuwalski K.^{♦}, Ustrzycka A.^{♦}, Mathematical and numerical modelling of large creep deformations for annular rotating disks,
APPLIED MATHEMATICS AND MECHANICS-ENGLISH EDITION, ISSN: 0253-4827, DOI: 10.1007/s10483-015-1994-7, Vol.36, No.11, pp.1441-1448, 2015Abstract: A simulation model is presented for the creep process of the rotating disks under the radial pressure in the presence of body forces. The finite strain theory is applied. The material is described by the Norton-Bailey law generalized for true stresses and logarithmic strains. A mathematical model is formulated in the form of a set of four partial differential equations with respect to the radial coordinate and time. Necessary initial and boundary conditions are also given. To make the model complete, a numerical procedure is proposed. The given example shows the effectiveness of this procedure. The results show that the classical finite element method cannot be used here because both the geometry and the loading (body forces) change with the time in the creep process, and the finite elements need to be redefined at each time step.

Szuwalski K.^{♦}, Ustrzycka A.^{♦}, Mathematical and numerical modelling of large axisymmetric creep strains and damage,
APPLIED MECHANICS AND MATERIALS, ISSN: 1662-7482, DOI: 10.4028/www.scientific.net/AMM.784.241, Vol.784, pp.214-248, 2015Abstract: The paper presents a simulation model for the creep process of rotating disks under radial tensional pressure subjected to of body force. The finite strain theory is applied. The material is described by the Norton - Bailey law generalized for true stresses and logarithmic strains. The mathematical model is formulated in form of set of four partial differential equations with respect to radial coordinate and time. Necessary initial and boundary conditions are also given. To make the model complete, the numerical procedure for solving this set is proposed. What is worth noticing the classical F EM is not applicable, because not only geometry, but also loading (body forces) change in time during the creep process. It would demand redefinition of finite elements at each time step. In uniaxial problem similar model was presented in [ 4 ], but now it is developed for complex stress state. Possible different formulations of initial and boundary conditions may be found in [ 5 ]. The procedure may be useful in problems of optimal design of full disks in [ 6 ] Keywords: creep process, rotating disks, finite strain theory, simulation model Affiliations:

Szuwalski K.^{♦}, Ustrzycka A.^{♦}, Optimal design of full disks with respect to mixed creep rupture time,
ENGINEERING STRUCTURES, ISSN: 0141-0296, DOI: 10.1016/j.engstruct.2013.08.001, Vol.56, pp.1728-1734, 2013Abstract: The mixed creep rupture theory to the optimization problem for the complex stress state is used. The problem of optimal shape for the rotating full disk with respect to mixed rupture time is investigated. The mathematical model of mixed creep rupture is described by the system of five partial differential equations. Difficulty of the problem results from two types of nonlinearities: geometrical connected with the use of the finite strain theory and physical – the material is described by the Norton’s creep law, here generalized for true stresses and logarithmic strains. Additional time factor leads to subsequent complications. The parametric optimization describing the initial shape of the disk is applied. The obtained results are compared with the optimal disks with respect to ductile creep rupture time Keywords: Mixed creep rupture, Structural optimization, Full disk Affiliations:

Szuwalski K.^{♦}, Ustrzycka A.^{♦}, Optimal design of bars under nonuniform tension with respect to mixed creep rupture time,
INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF NON-LINEAR MECHANICS, ISSN: 0020-7462, DOI: 10.1016/j.ijnonlinmec.2012.03.002, Vol.47, pp.55-60, 2012Abstract: The first attempt of finding of optimal shape for bars in presence of body forces with respect to mixed creep rupture is made. For given volume of the bar, distribution of initial cross-section, ensuring the longest life-time to mixed rupture is sought. The finite strain theory and physical law in form of Norton's law generalized for true stresses and logarithmic strains are applied. Using the method of parametric optimization, the best of linear and quadratic functions describing the initial shape of the bar are found. The shape of initial strength is corrected in a way leading to longer life-time. Results of both approaches are compared Keywords: Mixed rupture, Structural optimization, Nonhomogeneity Affiliations:

Szuwalski K.^{♦}, Ustrzycka A.^{♦}, Optimal Design of Conical Disk with Respect to Ductile Creep Rupture Time,
Czasopismo Techniczne. Mechanika, ISSN: 0011-4561, Vol.106, No.12, pp.85-95, 2009Abstract: This paper presents the problem of optimal design with respect to ductile creep rupture time for rotating disk. The material is described by the Norton–Bailey nonlinear creep law, here generalized for true stresses and logarithmic strains. For complex stress states, the law of similarity of deviators, combined with the Huber–Mises–Hencky hypothesis is applied. The set of four partial differential equations describes the creep conditions of annular disk. The optimal shape of the disk is found using parametric optimisation with one free parameter. The results are compared with disks of uniform thickness. Keywords: optimal design, annular disk, ductile creep rupture time Affiliations:
