  • Novel Micromixer with Complex 3D-Shape Inner Units: Design, Simulation and Additive Manufacturing
  • Abstract In this paper, a novel micromixer with complex 3D-shape inner units was put forward and fabricated by metal Additive Manufacturing (AM). The design of the micromixer combined the constraints of selective laser melting technology and the factors to improve mixing efficiency. Villermaux-Dushman reaction system and Compute Fluid Design (CFD) simulation were conducted to investigate the performance and the mechanism of this novel micromixer to improve mixing efficiency. The research found that the best mixing efficiency of this novel micromixer could be gained when the inner units divided fluid into five pieces with a uniform volume. Compared with a conventional micromixer…

  • T-Splines Based Isogeometric Topology Optimization with Arbitrarily Shaped Design Domains
  • Abstract In this paper, a new isogeometric topology optimization (ITO) method is proposed by using T-splines based isogeometric analysis (IGA). The arbitrarily shaped design domains, directly obtained from CAD, are represented by a single T-spline surface which overcomes the topological limitations of Non-Uniform Rational B-Spline (NURBS). The coefficients correlated with control points are directly used as design variables. Therefore, the T-spline basis functions applied for geometry description and calculation of structural response are simultaneously introduced to represent the density distribution. Several numerical examples show that the proposed approach leads to a coherent workflow to handle design problems of complicated structures. The…

  • FP-STE: A Novel Node Failure Prediction Method Based on Spatio-Temporal Feature Extraction in Data Centers
  • Abstract The development of cloud computing and virtualization technology has brought great challenges to the reliability of data center services. Data centers typically contain a large number of compute and storage nodes which may fail and affect the quality of service. Failure prediction is an important means of ensuring service availability. Predicting node failure in cloud-based data centers is challenging because the failure symptoms reflected have complex characteristics, and the distribution imbalance between the failure sample and the normal sample is widespread, resulting in inaccurate failure prediction. Targeting these challenges, this paper proposes a novel failure prediction method FP-STE (Failure Prediction…

  • The Influence of Entanglements of Net Chains on Phase Transition Temperature of Sensitive Hydrogels in Chemo-Mechanical Coupled Fields
  • Abstract Phase transition of hydrogel, which is polymerized by polymer network, can be regarded as the transition of polymer network stability. The stability of the polymer network might be changed when the external environment changed. This change will lead to the transformation of sensitive hydrogels stability, thus phase transition of hydrogel take place. Here, we present a new free density energy function, which considers the non-gaussianity of the polymer network, chains entanglement and functionality of junctions through adding Gent hyplastic model and Edwards-Vilgis slip-link model to Flory-Huggins theory. A program to calculate the phase transition temperature was written based on new…

  • Bell Polynomial Approach for the Solutions of Fredholm IntegroDifferential Equations with Variable Coefficients
  • Abstract In this article, we approximate the solution of high order linear Fredholm integro-differential equations with a variable coefficient under the initial-boundary conditions by Bell polynomials. Using collocation points and treating the solution as a linear combination of Bell polynomials, the problem is reduced to linear system of equations whose unknown variables are Bell coefficients. The solution to this algebraic system determines the approximate solution. Error estimation of approximate solution is done. Some examples are provided to illustrate the performance of the method. The numerical results are compared with the collocation method based on Legendre polynomials and the other two methods…

  • RBF Based Localized Method for Solving Nonlinear Partial Integro-Differential Equations
  • Abstract In this work, a numerical scheme is constructed for solving nonlinear parabolictype partial-integro differential equations. The proposed numerical scheme is based on radial basis functions which are local in nature like finite difference numerical schemes. The radial basis functions are used to approximate the derivatives involved and the integral is approximated by equal width integration rule. The resultant differentiation matrices are sparse in nature. After spatial approximation using RBF the partial integro-differential equations reduce to the system of ODEs. Then ODEs system can be solved by various types of ODE solvers. The proposed numerical scheme is tested and compared with…

  • A Galerkin-Type Fractional Approach for Solutions of Bagley-Torvik Equations
  • Abstract In this study, we present a numerical scheme similar to the Galerkin method in order to obtain numerical solutions of the Bagley Torvik equation of fractional order 3/2. In this approach, the approximate solution is assumed to have the form of a polynomial in the variable t = xα , where α is a positive real parameter of our choice. The problem is firstly expressed in vectoral form via substituting the matrix counterparts of the terms present in the equation. After taking inner product of this vector with nonnegative integer powers of t up to a selected positive parameter N,…

  • Crank-Nicolson ADI Galerkin Finite Element Methods for Two Classes of Riesz Space Fractional Partial Differential Equations
  • Abstract In this paper, two classes of Riesz space fractional partial differential equations including space-fractional and space-time-fractional ones are considered. These two models can be regarded as the generalization of the classical wave equation in two space dimensions. Combining with the Crank-Nicolson method in temporal direction, efficient alternating direction implicit Galerkin finite element methods for solving these two fractional models are developed, respectively. The corresponding stability and convergence analysis of the numerical methods are discussed. Numerical results are provided to verify the theoretical analysis.

  • Thermal Modeling and Analysis of Metal Foam Heat Sink with Thermal Equilibrium and Non-Equilibrium Models
  • Abstract In the present study, the thermal performance of metal foam heat sink was numerically investigated by adopting the local thermal non-equilibrium (LTNE) model and local thermal equilibrium (LTE) model. Temperature field distributions and temperature difference field distributions of solid and fluid phases were presented. Detailed thermal performance comparisons based on the LTE and LTNE models were evaluated by considering the effects of the relevant metal foam morphological and channel geometrical parameters. Results indicate that a distinct temperature difference exists between the solid and fluid phases when the LTNE effect is pronounced. The average Nusselt numbers predicted by both the LTE…
