    An Overrange Collocation Method

    Y.-M. Guo 1
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.73, No.1, pp. 1-22, 2011, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2011.073.001
    Abstract In this paper, a new meshless method called the overrange collocation method (ORCM) is proposed. By introducing some collocation points, which are located at outside of domain of the analyzed body, unsatisfactory issue of the positivity conditions of boundary points in collocation methods can be avoided. Because the overrange points are used only in interpolating calculation, no over-constrained condition is imposed into the solved boundary value problems. Poisson's problem and the linear elastic cantilever beam problem are analyzed by using the ORCM. More >

    Uncertainty Quantification of the Interaction of a Vortex Pair With the Ground

    J.L. Sereno1, J.C.F. Pereira1
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.73, No.1, pp. 23-44, 2011, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2011.073.023
    Abstract The evolution of a two-dimensional vortex pair in ground effect was studied under the influence of random initial inputs comprising vortex strength (circulation) or initial vortex position. The paper addresses the questions of how do variations and uncertainties of initial conditions translate to the variability of vortex pair evolution. The stochastic solutions were obtained recurring to the Polynomial Chaos Expansion method of random processes applied to the Navier-Stokes equations for a laminar flow. The method quantifies the extent, dependence and propagation of uncertainty through the model system and, in particular, a methodology for the calculation More >

    Improved Material Point Method for Simulating the Zona Failure Response in Piezo-Assisted Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection

    Y. Gan1, Z. Chen2,3, S. Montgomery-Smith4
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.73, No.1, pp. 45-76, 2011, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2011.073.045
    Abstract The material point method (MPM), which is an extension from computational fluid dynamics (CFD) to computational solid dynamics (CSD), is improved for the coupled CFD and CSD simulation of the zona failure response in piezo-assisted intracytoplasmic sperm injection (piezo-ICSI). To evaluate the stresses at any zona material point, a plane stress assumption is made in the local tangent plane of the membrane point, and a simple procedure is proposed to find the effective point connectivity for the orientation of the local tangent plane. With an iterative algorithm in each time step, the original MPM is More >

    Application of the Gradient Smoothing Technique to the Natural Neighbour Galerkin Method for the Couple-Stress Elasticity

    K. Wang1, S.J. Zhou2,3, Z.F. Nie4
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.73, No.1, pp. 77-102, 2011, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2011.073.077
    Abstract The natural neighbour Galerkin method is tailored to solve boundary value problems of the couple-stress elasticity to model the size dependent behaviour of materials. This method is based on the displacement-based Galerkin approach, and the calculation of the global stiffness matrix is performed using gradient smoothing technique combined with the non-Sibsonian partition of unity approximation scheme. This method possesses the following properties: the complex C1-continuous approximation scheme is avoided without using either Lagrange multipliers or penalty parameters; no domain integrals involved in the assembly of the global stiffness matrix; and the imposition of essential boundary More >
