ABSTRACT

In this work, we study an analytical procedure for evaluation of the displacement and stresses in fibre-reinforced anisotropic elastic media under effects of rotation and initial magnetic field, and due to the application of the rotation and initial magnetic field. Effects of rotation and initial magnetic field are analyzed theoretically and computed numerically. Numerical results have been given and illustrated graphically. Comparison was made with the results obtained in the presence of rotation and initial magnetic field in fibre-reinforced anisotropic and isotropic elastic media. The results indicate the effect of rotation and initial magnetic field.

1. Introduction

The linear theory of elasticity of paramount importance in the stress analysis of steel is the commonest engineering structural material. To a lesser extent, linear elasticity describes the mechanical behavior of the other common solid materials, e.g. concrete, wood and coal. The problem of rotating disks or cylinders has its application in high-speed cameras, steam and gas turbines, planetary landings and in many other domains. Various authors have formulated these generalized theories on different grounds. Lord and Shulman [1] have developed a theory on the basis of a modified heat conduction law which involves heat-flux rate. Green and Lindsay [2] have developed a theory by including temperature-rate among the constitutive variables. Lebon [3] has formulated a theory by considering heat-flux as an independent variable. Also some problems in thermoelastic rotating media are due to Roychoudhuri and Debnath [4] [5] . These problems are based on more realistic elastic model since earth, moon and other planets have angular velocity. Abd-Alla et al. [6] study effects of the rotation on an

infinite generalized magneto-thermoelastic diffusion body with a spherical cavity. Effects of rotation and initial stress on generalized-thermoelastic problem in an infinite circular cylinder are due to Abd-Alla et al. [7] . Bayones [8] studied effects of rotation and hydrostatic initial stress on propagation of Raylegh in waves in an elastic solide half-space under the GN theory. The solution to the problems of homogeneous isotropic rotating cylinders may be found in Love [9] and Sokolnikoff [10] . Abd-Alla and Abo-Dahab [11] and Sharma et al. [12] studied the effect of the time-harmonic source in a generalized thermoelasticity. Chandrasekharaiah [13] , Green and Naghdi [14] , and Hossen and Mallet [15] discussed the problem of thermoelasticity without energy dissipation. Abd-Alla et al. [16] studied M. I. Helmy’s Propagation of S-Wave in a Non-Homogeneous Anisotropic Incompressible and Initially Stressed Medium under Influence of Gravity Field. Effects of the rotation on a non-homogeneous infinite cylinder of orthotropic material are due to Abd-Alla et al. [17] .

Fibre-reinforced composites are used in a variety of structures due to their low weight and high strength. The mechanical behavior of many fibre-reinforced composite materials is adequately modeled by the theory of linear elasticity for transversely isotropic materials, with the preferred direction coinciding with the fibre direction. In such composites, the fibres are usually arranged in parallel straight lines. The characteristic property of a reinforced composite is that its components act together as a single anisotropic unit as long as they remain in the elastic condition.

The idea of introducing a continuous self-reinforcement at every point of an elastic solid was discussed by Belfied et al. [18] . The model was later applied to the rotation of a tube as discussed by Verma and Rana [19] . The problem of surface waves in fiber-reinforced anisotropic elastic media was discussed by Sengupta and Nath [20] . The elastic moduli for fiber-reinforced materials was given by Hashin and Rosen [21] . The problem of reflection of plane waves at the free surface of a fiber-reinforced elastic half-space was discussed by Singh and Singh [22] . The dispersion of Loves waves in a self-reinforced layer over an elastic non-homogeneous half-space was studied by Pradhan et al. [23] . The propagation of plane waves in a fiber-reinforced media was discussed by Chattopadhyay et al. [24] . The problem of wave propagation in thermally conducting linear fiber-reinforced composite materials was discussed by Singh [25] . Recently, the effect of rotation on plane waves at the free surface of a fiber-reinforced thermoelastic half-space using the finite element method was studied by Othman and Abbas [26] .

In this paper, we studied an analytical procedure for evaluation of the displacement, and stresses in fibre-reinforced anisotropic elastic media under effect of rotation and initial magnetic field. Using the harmonic vibrations, we found the general solution, determining the displacements and stress components. The special case was studied in isotropic generalized elastic medium with rotation and initial magnetic field. Finally, we represented this case graphically.

2. Formulation of the Problem (Figure 1)

The propagation of general surface waves is examined here for a fiber-reinforced elastic solid semi-infinite medium covered by another fiber-reinforced elastic medium (above and mechanical properties different from and which is welded in contact with to prevent any relative motion or sliding during disturbance). We consider an orthogonal Cartesian coordinate system with origin at the common plane boundary surface and directed normally into M. The elastic medium is rotating uniformly with angular velocity where is a unite vector representing the direction of the axis of rotation.

Both media are under the primary magnetic field acting on Z-axis,. The displacement equation of motion in the rotating frame has two additional terms is The centripetal acceleration due to time varying motion only, and is the Coriolis acceleration.

The electromagnetic field is governed by Maxwell equations , under the consideration that the medium is a perfect electric conductor taking into account the absence of the displacement current (see work of Mukhopadhyay [27] ):
