Key words and phrases: cross-ply composite; cylindrical shell; plane strain elasticity; sampling surfaces method.
Abstract: This paper presents an efficient method of solving the plane strain problem of elasticity for laminated composite cylindrical shells. The method is based on the new concept of sampling surfaces (SaS) proposed recently by the authors. According to this concept, we introduce inside the nth layer not equally spaced SaS parallel to the middle surface of the shell and choose displacements of these surfaces as shell unknowns. Such choice of displacements allows the derivation of strain-displacement relationships, which exactly represent all rigid-body shell motions in any curvilinear surface coordinate system. The latter gives in turn the opportunity to find the solutions of plane strain elasticity for thick and thin laminated cylindrical shells with a prescribed accuracy by using a sufficiently large number of SaS, which are located at layer interfaces and Chebyshev polynomial nodes.

Key words and phrases: crystal structure; phase coexisting; relaxor ferroelectrics.
Abstract: Dielectric anomalies specific for to relaxor ferroelectrics have been found for the SrTiO3 – BiScO3 system. The relaxor properties of this system are rather unexpected because neither SrTiO3 nor BiScO3 are ferroelectrics. An X-ray diffraction analysis revealed that at room temperature the ceramic (1 – x)SrTiO3 – xBiScO3 samples with x = 0.2, 0.3 and 0.4 consist of a mixture of a cubic centrosymmetric Pm3m phase and a tetragonal polar P4mm phase. Lattice parameters for these phases increase as x increases. In addition, it was found by the electron backscattered diffraction method that at room temperature, the fraction of the cubic phase decreases and the fraction of the tetragonal phase increases as the mole fraction of BiScO3 increases. Phase coexistence is assumed to be one of the reasons for the relaxor properties of the system under study.
