Finite Element Analysis of Influence of Non-homogenous Temperature Field on Designed Lifetime of Spatial Structural Elements under Creep Conditions

“continual fracture”, may be fulfilled efficiently using phenomenological scalar damage parameter, proposed in the works of V. Bolotin, L. Kachanov and Yu. Rabotnov [ 7 , 13 ]. This approach is developed and implemented for different loading conditions in the publications of Ukrainian scientists M. Bobyr, V. Golub, G. L’vov, Yu. Shevchenko [ 5 , 6 , 9 , 14 ] and foreign ones (Chen G., Hayhurst D., Lemaitre J., Murakami S., Otevrel I., etc.), particularly in [ 10 – 12 , 15 , 16 ]. It is shown that the damage accumulation process should be taking into account for

Nonlinear waves in a simple model of high-grade glioma

biological literature, there is a vast range of values for the diffusion and proliferation coefficients. To carry out the estimations, we resort to the following value for the proliferation ρ = 0.2 day −1 , which is in the range [0.01–0.5] day −1 , taken from [ 28 , 54 ] and D = 0.05 mm 2 /day (which is in the range [0.0004–0.1] mm 2 /day) [ 39 ]. Finally, we take α = 1/10 day −1 , L = 85 mm, x 0 = 10 mm, c = c min = 2 ( 1 − β ) , $\begin{array}{} c=c_{\text{min}}=2\sqrt{(1-\beta)}, \end{array} $ M = 0.3, b = 0.005, a = ( c − c 2 − 4 ( 1 − β − V

A New Approach For Weighted Hardy’s Operator In VELS

assumes a log-regularity of exponent function near origin and infinity has been proved in [ 1 , 5 , 6 , 8 , 10 , 17 , 23 ]. For a compactness problem of main integral operators in variable exponent Lebesgue space, we refer to [ 2 , 3 , 25 ] and especially for Hardy’s operator [ 4 ]. In this paper, we establish an integral-type necessary and sufficiency condition on a monotone weighted exponent function p : (0, ∞) → (1, ∞) governing the boundedness 1 x v ( x ) ∫ 0 x f ( t ) w ( t ) d t L p ( 0 , ∞ ) ≤ C f L p ( 0 , ∞ ) $$\begin{array}{} \displaystyle
