    FEM-Analysis of Nonclassical Transmission Conditions between Elastic Structures Part 1: Soft Imperfect Interface.

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.2, No.4, pp. 227-238, 2005, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2005.002.227
    Abstract FEM-evaluation of imperfect transmission conditions has been performed for a modelling problem of an elastic structure with a thin intermediate interface. Very good correlations with theoretical results have been obtained. Additionally, the possible error connected with introducing the transmission conditions instead of the intermediate zone has been estimated depending on mechanical properties of the zone. More >

    A Meshless Approach Based upon Radial Basis Function Hermite Collocation Method for Predicting the Cooling and the Freezing Times of Foods

    A. La Rocca1, H. Power1, V. La Rocca2, M. Morale2
    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.2, No.4, pp. 239-250, 2005, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2005.002.239
    Abstract This work presents a meshless numerical scheme for the solution of time dependent non linear heat transfer problems in terms of a radial basis function Hermite collocation approach. The proposed scheme is applied to foodstuff's samples during freezing process; evaluation of the time evolution of the temperature profile along the sample, as well as at the core, is carried out. The moving phase-change zone is identified in the domain and plotted at several timesteps. The robustness of the proposed scheme is tested by a comparison of the obtained numerical results with those found using a Finite Volume Method and with… More >

    The Method of Fundamental Solutions Applied to the Calculation of Eigenfrequencies and Eigenmodes of 2D Simply Connected Shapes

    Carlos J. S. Alves, Pedro R. S. Antunes1
    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.2, No.4, pp. 251-266, 2005, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2005.002.251
    Abstract In this work we show the application of the Method of Fundamental Solutions(MFS) in the determination of eigenfrequencies and eigenmodes associated to wave scattering problems. This meshless method was already applied to simple geometry domains with Dirichlet boundary conditions (cf. Karageorghis (2001)) and to multiply connected domains (cf. Chen, Chang, Chen, and Chen (2005)). Here we show that a particular choice of point-sourcescan lead to very good results for a fairly general type of domains. Simulations with Neumann boundary conditionare also considered. More >

    Solution of Maxwell's Equations Using the MQ Method

    D.L. Young1,3, C.S. Chen2, T.K. Wong3
    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.2, No.4, pp. 267-276, 2005, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2005.002.267
    Abstract A meshless time domain numerical method based on the radial basis functions using multiquadrics (MQ) is employed to simulate electromagnetic field problems by directly solving the time-varying Maxwell's equations without transforming to simplified versions of the wave or Helmholtz equations. In contrast to the conventional numerical schemes used in the computational electromagnetism such as FDTD, FETD or BEM, the MQ method is a truly meshless method such that no mesh generation is required. It is also easy to deal with the appropriate partial derivatives, divergences, curls, gradients, or integrals like semi-analytic solutions. For illustration purposes, the MQ method is employed… More >

    Transient Non-linear Heat Conduction Solution by a Dual Reciprocity Boundary Element Method with an Effective Posteriori Error Estimator

    Eduardo Divo1, Alain J. Kassab2
    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.2, No.4, pp. 277-288, 2005, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2005.002.277
    Abstract A Dual Reciprocity Boundary Element Method is formulated to solve non-linear heat conduction problems. The approach is based on using the Kirchhoff transform along with lagging of the effective non-linear thermal diffusivity. A posteriori error estimate is used to provide effective estimates of the temporal and spatial error. A numerical example is used to demonstrate the approach. More >
