The free longitudinal vibration of tapered nanowires is investigated in the context of nonlocal continuum theory.
The problem is studied for the nanowires with linearly varied radii under fixed–fixed and fixed–free boundary conditions.
In order to assess the problem in a more general form, a perturbation technique is proposed based on the Fredholm alternative theorem.
The motive of the project work is based on fabrication and modification of a palm kernel cracker and separator, so as to help farmers improve the efficiency of output based on time, reduce stress and injuries they incur in the process of cracking palm kernel and separating the kernel seed from the shells manually. Consider a steel-rust-concrete composite consisting of a circular cylindrical concrete cover and a coaxial uniformly corroding steel reinforcement.
Prediction of the amount of rust penetrated into the microcracks of concrete cover from a set of data measured at the surface of the concrete is of particular interest.
