    Summary:This paper discusses the inverse stochastic homogenization analysis for a particle-reinforced composite material. The homogenization analysis is performed with the homogenization theory, and the stochastic analysis is performed with the perturbation-based approach. In order to analyze the inverse stochastic homogenization problem, which aims to identify the coefficient of variances of the randomly varied elastic properties of component materials from the probabilistic characteristics of the homogenized elastic properties, the inverse stochastic homogenization method with the perturbation-based technique is proposed. The probabilistic properties of the homogenized elastic properties, which are obtained from an experiment or the Monte-Carlo simulation, are assumed to be known and used in the inverse stochastic homogenization analysis. The inverse stochastic homogenization problems with considering a single- or multi-variation of the elastic properties of the component materials are solved, and from the numerical results, accuracy and effectiveness of the proposed method are discussed.

    Summary:This paper discusses a stochastic homogenization analysis problem of a unidirectionally aligned short fiber reinforced composite material considering a uniform and/or non-uniform random variation of a microscopic quantity such as a material property or volume fraction of a microstructure. The homogenization analysis is performed with the homogenization theory and the equivalent inclusion method, and the stochastic analysis is performed with the perturbation-based method. In order to analyze the stochastic homogenization problem considering a periodic non-uniform microscopic random variation of the microscopic quantity, the hierarchical stochastic homogenization analysis procedure is proposed. As an example, the stochastic homogenization problems considering a non-uniform random variation of Young's modulus of resin and volume fraction of fiber are solved. From the numerical results, influence of the non-uniformity of the microscopic random variation is discussed. Also, from comparison between the results obtained with the proposed method and the Monte-Carlo simulation, accuracy of the proposed approach for the stochastic homogenization analysis of the short fiber reinforced composite material is discussed.

    Summary:This paper describes a method for stochastic homogenization analysis of a particle reinforced composite material. Since it is difficult to apply the homogenization-based perturbation method using the finite element method to a stochastic homogenization problem with considering a microscopic geometrical random variation in a microstructure, the equivalent inclusion method is used for the perturbation-based stochastic homogenization analysis. In using the equivalent inclusion method, each perturbation term for a random variation in a material property, size of inclusions or their volume fraction can be computed analytically. This fact shows applicability to apply the proposed method to a stochastic homogenization problem considering the microscopic geometrical random variation. At first, formulations for the proposed method are introduced. Next, the proposed method is applied to several kinds of numerical examples. From the numerical results, validity and accuracy of the proposed method are confirmed.

    Summary:A computational scheme of first-principles aided triple-scale analysis based on a process crystallography was proposed to design biocompatible piezoelectric thin films fabricated on substrate. To predict the crystal morphology of thin film such as preferred orientations and their ratio, the structural stability of all comformations of crystal cluster on substrate was evaluated by employing pseudo-potential method in density functional theory. Then, the predicted crystal morphology was introduced into micro structure and macro homogenized properties of piezoelectric thin film were estimated through dual-scale finite element analysis based on crystallographic homogenization theory. From the application to the existing biocompatible piezoelectric BaTiO_3 thin films fabricated on SrTiO_3 (110), SrTiO_3 (001) and MgO(100), computational results of the preferred orientations of microstructure and the homogenized dielectric constants of macrostructure had good correlation with experimental ones. Additionally, the proposed computation was applied to a new biocompatible piezoelectric MgSiO_3 thin film, which has been found by first-principles calculations in our previous studies. As a result, the computation indicated that Cr(110) substrate is most suitable for stable crystal growth of MgSiO_3 orientated to [101] direction and it outputs the high piezoelectric stress constants e_<33>=5.39C/m^2 and e_<31>=-3.64C/m^2.

    Summary:Response surfaces generated by using an artificial neural network or a Kriging model can approximate multimodal responses and the responses of multi-variable functions, even if the prior information used in creating the surfaces contains noises. To prevent the response surfaces from fitting to the noises in the prior information, regularization methods are applied. The Bayesian regularization method works well with an artificial neural network, and the improved nugget effect method can be effectively applied to the regularization of an ordinary Kriging model. Which response surface model to select depends on the amount of prior information and the number of variables in the response function. The Kriging model generates a more accurate response surface with a smaller amount of prior information than the artificial neural network does. On the other hand, the artificial neural network is more effective for approximating the response of a multivariable function than the Kriging model. As a result, we can apply the response surface method to find the variables that ensure the optimum response of a function. This may increase the opportunities for using optimization techniques in the practical design process.

    Summary:A computational prediction scheme of preferred orientations on various substrates by first principles calculation was proposed to design epitaxial piezoelectric thin film fabricated by sputtering, chemical vapor deposition and molecular beam epitaxy processes. At first, we computed epitaxial strain in piezoelectric thin film caused by lattice mismatch with substrate. When epitaxial strain is applied to crystal unit cell, total energy was evaluated by employing pseudo-potential method in density functional theory. Then, preferred orientations were predicted in view of stability of crystal cluster with various conformations on substrate. From application to BaTiO_3 thin films fabricated on SrTiO_3(110), SrTiO_3(001), MgO(100) and LaTiO_3(001), calculations indicated that total energy increment of cluster was available to evaluate the possibility of crystal growth. Calculational results of preferred orientations had good correlation with experimental.

  • Control of Overfitting in Hierarchical Neural Networks with DFP Formula, ASHIDA Fumihiro, SAKATA Sei-ichiro, KAWAGUCHI Takahisa, Transactions of the Japan Society of Mechanical Engineers. A, Transactions of the Japan Society of Mechanical Engineers. A, 74(739), 406 - 411, Mar. 25 2008
    Summary:This paper discusses a method for avoidance of overfitting which occurs during the training process of hierarchical neural networks with DFP updating formula. In comparison with a case of employing the back propagation algorithm for the updating formula, the training with the DFP formula finishes very quickly, but a frequency of the overfitting increases. In order to decrease the frequency, we have improved the algorithm so that the approximate inverse Hessian matrix is initialized at every hundred learning steps. The improved algorithm is applied to approximations of a sinc function with a variable as well as of a design space of an optimization problem with two variables. An repetition interval of the training procedure at which the approximate inverse Hessian matrix should be initialized is investigated. The interval exerts little influence upon the probability of obtaining good training results, whereas the probability of obtaining good testing results depends on the interval. As a result, the overfitting can be avoided successfully if the appropriate interval is maintained.

A, Transactions of the Japan Society of Mechanical Engineers. A, 74(738), 208 - 215, Feb. 25 2008
    Summary:This paper deals with one-dimensional generalized thermoelasticity in a composite thin film constructed of a piezoceramic layer and a structural layer , when damping effect is taken into account. The film is initially at reference temperature and subjected to a ramp heating on the free surface of the piezoceramic layer. By applying Lord and Shulman's theory the governing equations for the temperature changes, heat fluxes, particle velocities, axial stresses and electric field intensity are reduced to a system of nine first-order partial differential equations. This problem has been numerically analyzed by employing the method of characteristics. Finally, the effect of a damping coefficient on time histories of the temperature changes, axial stresses and electric field intensity are illustrated graphically.

    Summary:This paper deals with a stress control problem of a composite disk consisting of a transversely isotropic structural layer onto which a piezoelectric layer of crystal class 6mm is perfectly bonded. A number of electrodes are arranged concentrically on the top surface of the piezoelectric layer. When a heating temperature distribution acts on the bottom surface of the composite disk, the maximum thermal stress in the structural layer can be controlled by applying an appropriate electric potential to each electrode. The applied electric potentials are determined by using the quasi-Newton method based on the BFGS updating formula in the case where stress constraints are imposed on the piezoelectric layer. The exterior penalty function method is employed in order that the optimization problem with stress constraints is transformed to that without stress constraints. Numerical calculations have been carried out for a composite disk which consists of a CFRP layer and a cadmium selenide layer. Finally, numerical results are shown in tables and figures.

    Summary:This paper discusses a displacement control problem in a two-layered composite disk consisting of a transversely isotropic structural layer onto which a piezoceramic layer of crystal class 6mm is perfectly bonded. It is considered that some electrodes are concentrically arranged on the top surface of the disk. When an axisymmetric heating temperature acts on the bottom surface of the disk, the thermally induced displacement distribution on the bottom surface is controlled by applying a stepwise electric potential distribution to the top surface. The voltage which could be applied to each electrode is determined by optimization so that the displacement over the bottom surface of the disk has a desired distribution.

    Summary:The present paper discusses an approximate optimization method using the neural network in order to design a multi-layered composite plate constructed of an isotropic structural layer and multiple piezoceramic layers of class 6mm. The puropse of this design is to determine the ticknesses of the piezoceramic layers, such that the maximum value of the electric potential distribution which controls the thermal displacement on the surface of the structural layer is minimized subject to stress constraints. Instead of the back propagation method, the quasi-Newton method is employed for an updating formula of the connection weights. By restricting the normalization range of the training data, total execution time necessary to the training process are remarkably reduced. Thus, performance of the learning algorithm is greatly improved. Applying the improved learning algorithm to the design of the multi-layered composite plate, fairly good results for the approximate optimization are obtained.

    Summary:This paper describes an approximate structural optimization method by using the Kriging method and an optimization method using gradient components of an objective function. The Kriging method requires an assumption on semivariogram model, an approximated surface can be generated without an assumption on an order of base function for approximation. In this paper, Gauss model is assumed as a semivariogram. The proposed method consists of two main processes. 0ne is a space approximation process by the Kriging method, and another is an optimization process. In the proposed method, a gradient component on an approximated surface is obtained analytically by using an assumed semivariogram. Some numerical examples are illustrated to evaluate an applicability of the Kriging method to a structural optimization. And to illustrate effectiveness of the proposed method, two structural optimization problems are solved by using the proposed method. Numerical results show effectiveness and validity of the proposed method.

    Summary:This paper describes an optimizing algorithm for a global optimization problem, which has multi-local optimum solutions. 0n structural optimizations, some problems cannot be solved by using nonlinear programming method for convex optimization problem, because those are non-convex problem by complexity of constraint or objective function itself. Therefore, the global optimizing system that makes use of local optimizing procedure is needed for more effective searching in some design problems. The proposed method is to be characterized by using clustering procedure for convex subspaces, which are formed in a local optimizing procedure, and by using Lebesque measurement to evaluate a termination criterion. In order to evaluate the effectiveness of the algorithm, some numerical examples are illustrated

  • OS0418 Stochastic Analysis of Microscopic Stress in Fiber Reinforced Composites Considering Uncertainty in a Microscopic Elastic Property, SAKATA Sei-ichiro, ASHIDA Fumihiro,   2009 07 24
    Summary:This paper describes a numerical result of stochastic analysis on a random variation of microscopic stress caused by a random variation in a material property of component materials. The stochastic properties such as the expectation, variance or coefficient of variance are computed with the Monte-Carlo simulation. The microscopic stress is analyzed with using the homogenization theory based finite element analysis. As an example, a microscopic stress in a unidirectional fiber reinforced composite under a uni-axial macroscopic strain is taken into account. The macroscopic strain may change caused by a random variation in a material property of a component material, the stochastic characteristic of the microscopic stress under both constant strain and stress conditions are investigated. From numerical results, it is confirmed that the stochastic characteristics of the microscopic stress depend on both a kind of microscopic random variation and macroscopic condition on the strain field.

The proposed hybrid algorithm consists of two processes: (1) global approximation with Kriging method, (2) local approximation with polynomial approximation. One of the key ideas of the proposed method is Hessian evaluation of an estimated surface, which can be estimated using the Kriging-based formulation, for accurate approximation based on a quadratic polynomial approximation.

    Summary:This paper discuss a stress control problem in a three-layered composite disk consisting of a transversely isotropic structural layer onto which piezoelectric sensor and actuator layers of crystal 6mm are perfectly bounded. It is considered that some electrodes are arranged concentrically on the upper surface of the actuator layer.

  • 430 Stochastic Response Analysis of FRP using Second-order Perturbation-based Homogenization Method, SAKATA Sei-ichiro, ASHIDA Fumihiro, ZAKO Masaru,   2007 10 24
    Summary:This paper discusses a stochastic response analysis using the second-order perturbation-based homogenization method for fiber reinforced composites. The perturbation method is used for estimating stochastic characteristics such as the expectation or variance of a homogenized elastic tensor or a homogenized equivalent elastic constant of FRP. Those stochastic characteristics will be estimated using the first-order perturbation based homogenization method in case of linear stochastic response of a homogenized elastic property however, a stochastic response in some other problems considering non-linearity or large stochastic variation cannot be estimated accurately using the first-order perturbation method. In this paper, therefore, the second-order perturbation-based homogenization method is used for the estimation. At first, an outline of the second-order perturbation-based homogenization method is introduced. Also, the perturbation-based procedure for computing a perturbation term of a homogenized equivalent elastic constant is introduced. Those methods are applied to a stochastic analysis for a homogenization problem of FRP. From the numerical results, effectiveness and a problem of the second-order perturbation method are illustrated.

    Summary:This paper discusses influence of microscopic uncertainty of material property on homogenized macroscopic properties of unidirectional GFRP. Especially, influence of microscopic geometrical configuration such as a cross sectional shape of fiber or volume fraction of fiber on expectation and variation of the homogenized elastic property is taken into account. The influence is investigated using the homogenization method based finite element analysis and Monte-Carlo simulation.

  • 2204 Stochastic Response Analysis of Fiber Reinforced Composites using First-order Perturbation based Homogenization Method, SAKATA Sei-ichiro, ASHIDA Fumihiro, ZAKO Masaru,   2007 09 07
    Summary:This paper discusses a three-dimensional stochastic response analysis for a homogenization problem of fiber reinforced composites using the first-order perturbation method and the homogenization method. In addition to the homogenized elastic tensor, stochastic characteristics of homogenized elastic constants are investigated using the first-order perturbation method. Assuming an orthotropic material, a homogenized elastic constant is computed from a homogenized compliance matrix. Uncertainty of microscopic material property is taken into account in this paper. As a numerical example, stochastic characteristics of homogenized elastic tensor for a unidirectional fiber reinforced composites, which has periodic microstructure with hexagonal arrangement, is investigated. From the numerical results, effectiveness and limitation of the first-order perturbation method is illustrated
  • 2216 Displacement control of Piezoelectric Composite Disk using DFP-based Neural Network : stabilization of training, TSUBOKURA Takahiro, SAKATA Sei-ichiro, ASHIDA Fumihiro,   2007 09 07
    Summary:This paper discusses an effect of stabilization of learning process for DFP-based hierarchical neural network on a result of approximate optimization for controlling deformation of a piezoelectric composite disk. Though the DFP formula enables to enhance a learning speed of the neural network, a learning result of the DFP-based neural network is heavily dependent on a set of initial value for weighing coefficients. This will cause a fatal problem in the use of approximate optimization. The proposed stabilization algorithm is applied to the neural network-based approximate optimization technique. From the numerical result, it is shown that the proposed stabilization algorithm improves accuracy of an approximated optimum result using the DFP-based neural network.

Several flexible approximate optimization methods can estimate gradient and Hessian components of an estimated surface without using finite difference, and it will be available in approximate optimization process using a gradient-based optimization method. Since its accuracy affects an estimated result of optimum solution or convexity, accuracy of estimations by those flexible methods should be investigated.

    Summary:This paper describes a homogenization analysis of hollow fiber composite material. Generally a porous material has low thermal conductivity, but it is difficult to control both thermal and mechanical property because of difficulty on control of shape and location of holes in composite media. In this study, a homogenization analysis and transient heat conductivity analysis of a hollow fiber composite plate is carried out. Effect of microstructural design of hollow fiber on homogenized thermal and mechanical properties are also investigated. Numerical results illustrate validity of the analysis and necessity of the microstructural design of hollow fiber composite material.
  • Determination of a Stepwise Electric Potential Controlling a Thermoelastic Displacement in a Two-layered Composite Plate, YOSHIDA Shinji, ASHIDA Fumihiro, SAKATA Seiichiro, Proceedings of the ... annual meeting of JSME/MMD,   2003 09 23
    Summary:This paper discusses a displacement control problem in a two-layered composite plate consisting of a transversely isotropic structural layer onto which a piezoceramic layer of crystal class 6mm is perfectly bonded. It is considered that some electrodes are metallized on the top free surface in a concentric configuration. When an axisymmetric heating temperature acts on the bottom free surface, the thermally induced elastic displacement on the structural layer surface could be controlled by applying a different electric voltage to each electrode. The applied electric potentials are determined by an approximate optimization using neural networks so that the difference between the desired and thermally induced elastic displacement distributions is minimized. Finally, numerical results for the controlled displacement distribution and applied electric potentials are illustrated graphically.

    Summary:This paper describes a microscopic optimization of fiber reinforced plastics to improve a reliability of a composite structure. To improve a reliability, minimum residual elasticity in a composite plate after loading is maximized. A microstructure is modeled by using the Fixed Grid Method, Macroscopic properties are calculated by using the Homogenization method. A microstucture is optimized by using the Kriging approximation and a gradient-based optimization method. As an example, a microstrcture of a composite plate under bending and compression is optimized by using the proposed method. The numerical result illustrates an effectiveness of the proposed method.
  • Thermoelastic Problem of a Piezoceramic Circular Plate with a Relaxation Time, Ashida Fumihiro, Sakata Seiichiro, Uchida Kazumasa,   2003 08 05
    Summary:The present paper deals with a thermoelastic problem of a piezoceramic circular plate of crystal class 6mm symmetry, when a relaxation time is taken into account in the temperature field. One boundary surface of the plate is exposed to an ambient temperature distribution, whereas the other boundary surface is kept at the initial temperature. An exact solution to the temperature field is obtained by means of the Laplace transform technique. The elastic and electric fields are analyzed by employing the piezothermoelastic potential function method. Numerical calculations have been carried out for a cadmium selenide plate, and numerical results are illustrated graphically.

    Summary:This paper deals with optimization of the layer thicknesses of a multi-layered piezoceramic plate by employing the neural network approximation. Electric potentials controlling a thermally induced elastic displacement of the plate are minimized subject to stress constraints. A learning cost is considered to be high in the case of this problem. By introducing the quasi-Newton method as an updating formula for connection weights, a learning algorithm is improved and the cost of the neural network approximation is greatly saved. Numerical results have been obtained and the validity of the proposed method is demonstrated.
  • Microscopic Structural Optimization of FRP Using Spatial Estimation, SAKATA Seiichiro, ASHIDA Fumihiro, ZAKO Masaru,   2002 09 20
    Summary:This paper describes a microscopic structural optimization of fiber reinforced plastics using spatial estimation and a gradient optimization method. A residual component of a homogenized elastic tensor after microscopic fracture is maximized. Fixed grid model is used as microscopic FRP model. Homogenization method is used in order to calculate a macroscopic homogenized elastic tensor. A solution space is estimated using the Kriging method. The Grauss type semivariogram model is adopted in this paper. Gradient method is suitable to solve the optimization problem, which is estimated using the Kriging method, because gradient components on an estimated surface can be obtained without using a finite differential. In this paper, CSSL method is used as an optimizer. Using the proposed method, an estimated optimum solution to maximize the residual rigidity of GFRP is obtained, a validity and effectiveness of the method is confirmed.
  • Dynamic Thermoelastic Problem of a Piezoceramic Plate with a Relaxation Time, Ashida Fumihiro, Sakata Seiichiro,   2002 09 20
    Summary:The present paper deals with the dynamic thermoelastic problem of a thin piezoelectric plate of crystal class 6mm, when not only a relaxation time in the temperature field but also an inertial effect in the elastic field is taken into account. One boundary surface of the thin plate is exposed to a uniform ambient temperature, whereas the other boundary surface is kept at the initial temperature. An exact solution to this problem is obtained by employing the Laplace transform technique. Numerical calculations have been carried out for a thin PZT-5A plate, and the numerical results are illustrated graphically.
  • Structural Optimization Using Spatial Estimation and Gradient Method, SAKATA Seiichiro, ASHIDA Fumihiro, ZAKO Masaru, M&M Lakeside Summer Symposium,   2002 08 06
    Summary:This paper describes about a new structural optimization method by using spatial estimation. The proposed method consists of two main processes. One is a space estimation process by Kriging method, and the other is an optimization process by a gradient method. An estimated solution space can be generated without an assumption on an order of approximated function. Kriging method requires an assumption on semivariogram model. In this paper, Gauss model is assumed. Nonlinear programming is used as a local optimizer in the proposed design system, and it is available to use because a gradient component on an estimated surface can be obtained analytically. Some numerical examples are illustrated in order to evaluate a validity and effectiveness of the proposed method.

    Summary:Control of elastic displacement in a two-layer composite circular disk subjected to axisymmetric heating is investigated. The disk consists of a transversely isotropic structural layer onto which a piezoceramic layer of crystal class 6mm is bonded. First, a solution procedure based upon potential functions is used to analyze the elastic and electric fields in the disk, when a transient ambient temperature acts on the free surface of the structural layer. Then a distribution of transient electric potential applied to the piezoceramic layer is determined, such that the resultant elastic displacement on the free surface of the structural layer has the desired distribution. Numerical results for the applied electric potential and elastic displacement are illustrated graphically.
  • K-0611 An Examination on the Design Variables and the Design Procedures for the Microstructural Design of the Composite Material, HORINOKUCHI Naokazu, SAKATA Seiishiro, ASHIDA Fumihiro,   2001 08 22
    Summary:We present about an examination on the design method to optimize some kind variables. It is considered that microstructural design of composite material by using beam model. In the case that additional reinforcements are inserted to a base structure, topology, location or cross-sectional shape of reinforcements will be considered as design variables. In order to construct a design system for simultaneous design of both layout and cross-sectional size, differences of each solution which can be obtained by different design procedures for the multiple types of design variables are investigated. In this time, a cantilever with a slit at the center is optimized by using the steepest descent method as one of the simplest example. The results show a difficulty of the design and a necessity of the design method which can search the optimum solution stably with lower computational cost.
