These articles have been peer-reviewed and accepted for publication in IJHM, but are pending final changes, are not yet published and may not appear here in their final order of publication until they are assigned to issues. Therefore, the content conforms to our standards but the presentation (e.g. typesetting and proof-reading) is not necessarily up to the Inderscience standard. Additionally, titles, authors, abstracts and keywords may change before publication. Articles will not be published until the final proofs are validated by their authors.


Forthcoming articles must be purchased for the purposes of research, teaching and private study only. These articles can be cited using the expression "in press". For example: Smith, J. (in press). Article Title. Journal Title.

  • Optimization analysis of nanocomposite pipes with internal fluid flow under a harmonic load   Order a copy of this article
    by Abdelouahed Tounsi 
    Abstract: The harmony search algorithm is applied to optimum designs of a functionally graded (FG)-carbon naotubes (CNTs)-reinforced pipes conveying fluid subjected to moving load. The structure is modeled by Reddy cylindrical shell theory and the final equations are obtained by principal of Hamilton. Based on differential quadrature method (DQM), the dynamic displacement of system is derived. The length, thickness, diameter, velocity of load and acceleration of load, temperature of fluid, velocity of fluid, and the volume fraction of CNT are considered for design variables. The results illustrates that the optimum diameter of the pipe is decreased by increasing the CNTs volume percent. In addition, with increasing the moving load velocity and acceleration, the FS is decreased.
