    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.36, No.1, pp. 1-21, 2013, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2013.036.001
    Abstract This paper explores the application of Local Radial Basis Function Collocation Method (LRBFCM) [Šarler and Vertnik (2006)] for solution of Newtonian incompressible 2D fluid flow for a lid driven cavity problem [Ghia, Ghia, and Shin (1982)] in primitive variables. The involved velocity and pressure fields are represented on overlapping five-noded sub-domains through collocation by using Radial Basis Functions (RBF). The required first and second derivatives of the fields are calculated from the respective derivatives of the RBF’s. The momentum equation is solved through explicit time stepping. The method is alternatively structured with multiquadrics and inverse multiquadrics RBF’s. In addition, two… More >

    Forced Vibration of the Pre-Stressed and Imperfectly Bonded Bi-Layered Plate Strip Resting on a Rigid Foundation

    S.D. Akbarov1,2, E. Hazar3, M. Eröz3
    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.36, No.1, pp. 23-48, 2013, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2013.036.023
    Abstract Within the scope of the piecewise homogeneous body model with utilizing of the three dimensional linearized theory of elastic waves in initially stressed bodies the influence of the shear-spring type imperfection of the contact conditions between the layers of the pre-stressed bi-layered plate strip resting on the rigid foundation, on the frequency response of this plate strip is investigated. The corresponding mathematical problem is solved numerically by employing FEM and numerical results illustrating the influence of the parameter characterizing the degree of the mentioned imperfectness, on the frequency response of the normal stress acting on the interface planes between the… More >

    The Cell Method: an Enriched Description of Physics Starting from the Algebraic Formulation

    E. Ferretti1
    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.36, No.1, pp. 49-72, 2013, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2013.036.049
    Abstract In several recent papers studying the Cell Method (CM), which is a numerical method based on a truly algebraic formulation, it has been shown that numerical modeling in physics can be achieved even without starting from differential equations, by using a direct algebraic formulation. In the present paper, our focus will be above all on highlighting some of the theoretical features of this algebraic formulation to show that the CM is not simply a new numerical method among many others, but a powerful numerical instrument that can be used to avoid spurious solutions in computational physics.

    Multivariate Adaptive Regression Splines Model to Predict Fracture Characteristics of High Strength and Ultra High Strength Concrete Beams

    P. Yuvaraj1, A. Ramachandra Murthy2, Nagesh R. Iyer3, Pijush Samui4, S.K. Sekar5
    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.36, No.1, pp. 73-97, 2013, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2013.036.073
    Abstract This paper presents Multivariate Adaptive Regression Splines (MARS) model to predict the fracture characteristics of high strength and ultra high strength concrete beams. Fracture characteristics include fracture energy (GF), critical stress intensity factor (KIC) and critical crack tip opening displacement (CTODc). This paper also presents the details of development of MARS model to predict failure load (Pmax) of high strength concrete (HSC) and ultra high strength concrete (UHSC) beam specimens. Characterization of mix and testing of beams of high strength and ultra strength concrete have been described. Methodologies for evaluation of fracture energy, critical stress intensity factor and critical crack… More >
