A new type shaped charge warhead was put forward based on the energy concepts and its penetration capability was studied. Then the molding process and the penetration mechanism were discussed with respect to the shaped charge jet and the projectile produced by the new type shaped charge warhead. Based on the above analysis, the static steel target experiments were systematically carried out based on the new type shaped charge warhead in order to find the influence of the key configuration parameters and the match between the small angle liner material and the large angle liner material on the penetration results. The experiment results revealed that at the optimal stand offs of the new type shaped charge warhead and the EFP, the penetration capability of the new type shaped charge warhead could achieve an increase of about 50{\%} from the penetration capability of the EFP with a comparative diameter of their craters under the same charge and casing conditions.

During the trial production of a four-cylinder diesel engine, cracks occurred on a cylinder block. In order to ensure the engine's safe working, the issue must be solved. In this paper, mechanics theory is applied to analyse the issue and it is concluded that the cracks were caused by uneven forces acting on the block. At the same time, the experimental stress anlysis is carried out to study two types of four-cylinder engine blocks, and the effect of cylinder washer on block's stress and cylinder sheath's distortion is found. So a method is given to reduce the block's stress and the cracks have not appeared again. Oil-leak, air-leak and cylinder scratch have not occurred either, and reliability is improved greatly.

In the paper, the limit load formulae for a thick-walled tube with different strength in tension and compression state are derived based on the twin shear unified strength theory, under the action of an inner pressure and axial force. In these formulae, the results with Tresca criterion, linear approximate Mises criterion and twin shear stress yield criterion can be obtained with different coefficient values reflecting the middle main stress effect, and limit loading curves for different yielding criterions are plotted. Therefore, accurate solutions for limit loads can be obtained with this theory under the three-dimensional state; the limit loading diagram is consistent to yielding curves of twin shear stress, Mises and Tresca criterions; these formulae can be used for the material with differentia strength in tension and compression state.

Fatigue crack initiation is an important period in the whole fatigue life. The crack initiation period cannot be estimated with fracture mechanics, which is used for large cracks. In this paper, the crack initiation life estimate equation is deduced by using the fatigue damage continuous curve with the basis of experimental data obtained from the crack initiation plastic hysteresis energy as a control parameter.

This paper presents a stochastic analysis of an axially-loaded cantilever bar with the Young's modulus being considered as a random field. For a small variation, the stochastic governing differential equation and the boundary conditions of the problem are first decomposed into two sets of equations and conditions corresponding to a mean value problem and a deviation problem, respectively. According to the similarity between the above two sets of equations and conditions, analytical solutions corresponding to different covariance structures and fluctuation scales are then obtained. On this basis, the sensitivity study of the covariance functions on the structural response is carried out. It is shown that different covariance structures have certain effects on the stochastic results, but have little influence on the solutions when the fluctuation scales are either small or large. The exact solutions obtained in this paper may also be used to verify the validity of other numerical methods.

A new approximate solution to thickness reduction of plastic bending sheet is presented by considering the characteristics of deformation and stress distribution. The proposed method is based on the incremental theory, and volume invariance and planar cross-section are assumed. As a calculation example, the sheet reduction ratio and the distance from the neutral plane to inner boundary are calculated and compared with published data. A fairly good agreement is obtained between the calculated results and the experimental data.

To obtain an approximate solution with the method of weighted residuals, the perturbation method with plate center deflection as perturbation parameter is used to turn nonlinear partial differential equations for large deflection of rectangular plate to linear partial differential equations. Then, a solution is obtained with the least square method. In the course of solution, an ascending power trial function family is used, which can be conditioned by the control parameter $f$. The results agree with the experimental ones. Compared with previous researches, the precision of calculation is improved evidently. It is an effective method to obtain a best trial function and a best approximate value.

The traditional method to draw contours has some disadvantages, such as adjacent contours are not well fitted and contours intersect and overlap each other. In order to overcome them, another simple but highly effective method is proposed in this paper. This method is based on mechanical model of spline function. The principle is that the vertical displacements of elastic lamella grids the elevation of land key points. Consequently we can use the finite element method to draw contours accurately. Through two examples, the practicability of this method is illuminated by using finite element general program ANSYS to draw contour. This method can be widely used in drawing contours of large scale relief maps.

Local wall-thinning, as a common defect on the surfaces of pipelines, not only reduces the load-carrying capacities, but also causes serious failure accidents of pipelines. In this paper, a computational method for plastic limit loads is adopted. The plastic collapse analysis of defective pipe elbows under internal pressure and bending moment is performed by the proposed algorithm. The defects considered here include part-through spherical, ellipsoidal and rectangular slots. Based on a number of numerical examples, the limit loads of pipe elbows are computed for a range of geometric parameters. The effects of axial, circumferential, small and large area local wall-thinnings with different sizes on load-carrying capacities of pipe elbows under internal pressure and in-plane bending moment are analyzed. Some typical failure modes corresponding to different configurations of slots and loading forms are studied. The computational results can provide theoretical foundations for the safety assessment of defective pipe elbows.

Underwater weightlessness simulation, developed overseas from the 1960s, is an indispensable training method for astronauts on the ground. Theoretical basis of this method is the dynamics of the underwater weightlessness simulation, which can provide the theoretical direction and the practice support. There are certain inherent problems in this method, such as the water drag, deviation between the center of gravity and the center of buoyance, the change of the buoyance, and so on. Consideration of these factors in the application is necessary to attain a high-fidelity simulation. The theoretical analysis, mathematical simulation and physical test are the useful ways, which can indicate the underlying principles for the underwater weightlessness simulation, answer the theoretical problems in practice and provide effective measures to attain high-fidelity simulation results. This article provides a schematic introduction on the underwater weightlessness simulation, outlines the developing background, basic principles, progresses, advantages and disadvantages of underwater weightlessness simulation, summarises the current research of dynamics of underwater weightlessness simulation both in China and abroad, and finally points out the trends of dynamics research for underwater weightlessness simulation in the future.

In this paper the orthogonal and ortho-laid space grids are assumed as an orthotropic sandwich plate, which is analyzed by the theory of plate with consideration of shear deformation and three generalized displacements. The calculating formulas for internal forces and displacements of double-layer space grids under local loading are given based upon ESPM, and have been validated by the finite element method (ANSYS). In general, the differences between ESPM and FEM are less than 10\% and 5\% for internal forces and displacements, respectively. So this method can be used in the design of double-layer space grids.

The evolutionary structural optimization method has been under continuous development since 1992. Recently a bi-direction evolutionary structural optimization method is developed whereby material can be added and removed. In order to consider the effects of element removing or adding on structural stress constraints, in this paper, a new bi-direction evolutionary structural optimization method is proposed for structures under multiple loads. First, based on an idea that artificial material is added around optimal structural cavities and boundaries, a structural optimization model and a set of stress sensitivity formula are built. Then combining structural stresses and its sensitivities, a set of criteria, for adding and removing finite elements for the topology optimization problem of structures under multiple loads, is established, and a kind of new topology optimization procedure is obtained. Several simulation examples show that the proposed method is valid and effective for structural topology optimization.
