    Optimally Generalized Regularization Methods for Solving Linear Inverse Problems

    Chein-Shan Liu1
    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.29, No.2, pp. 103-128, 2012, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2012.029.103
    Abstract In order to solve ill-posed linear inverse problems, we modify the Tikhonov regularization method by proposing three different preconditioners, such that the resultant linear systems are equivalent to the original one, without dropping out the regularized term on the right-hand side. As a consequence, the new regularization methods can retain both the regularization effect and the accuracy of solution. The preconditioned coefficient matrix is arranged to be equilibrated or diagonally dominated to derive the optimal scales in the introduced preconditioning matrix. Then we apply the iterative scheme to find the solution of ill-posed linear inverse problem. Two theorems are proved… More >

    Domain-Decomposition Singular Boundary Method for Stress Analysis in Multi-Layered Elastic Materials

    Yan Gu1, Wen Chen1,2, Xiao-Qiao He3
    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.29, No.2, pp. 129-154, 2012, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2012.029.129
    Abstract This paper applies an improved singular boundary method (SBM) in conjunction with domain decomposition technique to stress analysis of layered elastic materials. For problems under consideration, the interface continuity conditions are approximated in the same manner as the boundary conditions. The multi-layered coating system is decomposed into multiple subdomains in terms of each layer, in which the solution is approximated separately by the SBM representation. The singular boundary method is a recent meshless boundary collocation method, in which the origin intensity factor plays a key role for its accuracy and efficiency. This study also introduces new strong-form regularization formulas to… More >

    Penetration Analysis of Concrete Plate by 3D FE-SPH Adaptive Coupling Algorithm

    D. A. Hu1,2,3, C. Liang1, X. Han1, Y. Z. Chen4, W. F. Xu4
    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.29, No.2, pp. 155-168, 2012, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2012.029.155
    Abstract Penetration process of concrete plate is simulated by 3D FE-SPH adaptive coupling algorithm, which is based on experimental research of projectile with 25mm diameter penetrates concrete target. In experiment, a high speed camera is used to record dynamic deformation process of concrete plate. Acceleration responses of concrete are obtained by acceleration sensor, which is pre-embedded in target plate. This experiment is also simulated by 3D FE-SPH adaptive coupling algorithm to verify the numerical model. Numerical model is approximated initially by FEM, and distorted elements are automatically converted into meshless particles to simulate damage, splash of concrete by SPH method, when… More >

    Development of 3D T-Trefftz Voronoi Cell Finite Elements with/without Spherical Voids &/or Elastic/Rigid Inclusions for Micromechanical Modeling of Heterogeneous Materials

    L. Dong1, S. N. Atluri1
    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.29, No.2, pp. 169-212, 2012, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2012.029.169
    Abstract In this paper, three-dimensionalT-Trefftz Voronoi Cell Finite Elements (VCFEM-TTs) are developed for micromechanical modeling of heterogeneous materials. Several types of VCFEMs are developed, depending on the types of heterogeneity in each element. Each VCFEM can include alternatively a spherical void, a spherical elastic inclusion, a spherical rigid inclusion, or no voids/inclusions at all.In all of these cases, an inter-element compatible displacement field is assumed at each surface of the polyhedral element, with Barycentric coordinates as nodal shape functions.The T-Trefftz trial displacement fields in each element are expressed in terms of the Papkovich-Neuber solution. Spherical harmonics are used as the Papkovich-Neuber… More >
