Preprint
Despite the significant advances in the numerical solution of nonlinear boundary value problems, most of the existing methods still encounter with a high sensitivity to the initial guess. The aim of this paper is to propose a less sensitive robust numerical scheme for accurate solution of sensitive boundary value problems. For this purpose, an orth...

It is well known that, one of the useful and rapid methods for a nonlinear system of algebraic equations is Newton's method. Newton's method has at least quadratic convergence when the Jacobian is a nonsingular matrix in a neighborhood of the solution. In this paper, a differential continuation method is presented for solving the nonlinear system o...

This paper addresses a magnetic yoke design to detect a notch on plate edges based on magnetic flux leakage. A design to detect a notch on plate edges is proposed in which magnetic flux leakage is used. To show the leaked magnetic field from the notch, a specimen with a high magnetic permeability is considered. Since in our setup the magnetic perme...

Using backup plate is one of the most commonly used methods to decrease drilling-induced delamination of composite laminates. It has been shown that, the size of the delamination zone is related to the vertical element of cutting force named as thrust force. Also, direct control of thrust force is not a routine task, because, it depends on both dri...
