    Bäcklund Transformations: a Link Between Diffusion Models and Hydrodynamic Equations

    J.R. Zabadal1, B. Bodmann1, V. G. Ribeiro2, A. Silveira2, S. Silveira2
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.103, No.4, pp. 215-227, 2014, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2014.103.215
    Abstract This work presents a new analytical method to transform exact solutions of linear diffusion equations into exact ones for nonlinear advection-diffusion models. The proposed formulation, based on Bäcklund transformations, is employed to obtain velocity fields for the unsteady two-dimensional Helmholtz equation, starting from analytical solutions of a heat conduction type model.

    Particle-based Simulations of Flows with Free Surfaces Using Hyperbolic-typeWeighting Functions

    K. Kakuda1, Y. Hayashi1, J. Toyotani1
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.103, No.4, pp. 229-249, 2014, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2014.103.229
    Abstract In this paper, we present the application of the particle-based simulations to complicated fluid flow problem with free surfaces. The particle approach is based on the MPS (Moving Particle Simulation) method using hyperbolic-type weighting function to stabilize the spurious oscillatory solutions for solving the Poisson equation with respect to the pressure fields. The hyperbolic-type weighting function is constructed by differentiating the characteristic function based on neural network framework. The weighting function proposed herein is collaterally applied to the kernel function in the SPH-framework. Numerical results demonstrate the workability and validity of the present MPS approach through the dambreaking flow problem. More >

    Numerical Simulation of 3D Rough Surfaces and Analysis of Interfacial Contact Characteristics

    Guoqing Yang1, Baotong Li2,3, Yang Wang2, Jun Hong2
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.103, No.4, pp. 251-279, 2014, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2014.103.251
    Abstract Mechanical behaviors arising at the contact interface largely depend on its surface topographies, particularly when it comes to rough surfaces. A numerical simulation based on an appropriate characterization of rough surfaces especially in terms of three dimensional can be of great significance when it comes to capturing the deformation patterns of micro-scale contacts. In this paper, a simple and practical scheme is developed to generate 3D rough surfaces and to analyze and evaluate the contact characteristics. Firstly amplitude and spatial statistical characterizations of asperities are introduced to avert from the redundancy of topography data caused by traditional measuring methods. A… More >
