One of the biggest problems with controlling complex systems is that they are not very responsive to external signals unless an overwhelming control force is applied; otherwise the response is usually small and irregular. The response of harmonic oscillators to random input is typically very small as well, but if the driving force has a certain frequency(More)
A Local Load Sharing (LLS) model recently developed by Curtin and co-workers for the numerical simulation of tensile stress-strain behavior in fiber-reinforced composites is used to predict the tensile strength of metal matrix composites consisting of a Titanium matrix and unidirectionally aligned SiC fibers. This model is extended to include the effects of(More)
