    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.105, No.1, pp. 1-24, 2015, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2015.105.001
    Abstract In this paper, we propose an approach for diagnostics and prognostics of damaged aircraft structures, by combing high-performance fatigue mechanics with filtering theories. Fast & accurate deterministic analyses of fatigue crack propagations are carried out, by using the Finite Element Alternating Method (FEAM) for computing SIFs, and by using the newly developed Moving Least Squares (MLS) law for computing fatigue crack growth rates. Such algorithms for simulating fatigue crack propagations are embedded in the computer program Safe- Flaw, which is called upon as a subroutine within the probabilistic framework of filter theories. Both the extended Kalman as well as particle… More >

    A 3-D Visco-Hyperelastic Constitutive Model for Rubber with Damage for Finite Element Simulation

    Ala Tabiei1, Suraush Khambati2
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.105, No.1, pp. 25-45, 2015, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2015.105.025
    Abstract A constitutive model to describe the behavior of rubber from low to high strain rates is presented. For loading, the primary hyperelastic behavior is characterized by the six parameter Ogden’s strain-energy potential of the third order. The rate-dependence is captured by the nonlinear second order BKZ model using another five parameters, having two relaxation times. For unloading, a single parameter model has been presented to define Hysteresis or continuous damage, while Ogden’s two term model has been used to capture Mullin’s effect or discontinuous damage. Lastly, the Feng-Hallquist failure surface dictates the ultimate failure for element deletion. The proposed model… More >

    Optimal Adaptive Genetic Algorithm Based Hybrid Signcryption Algorithm for Information Security

    R. Sujatha1, M. Ramakrishnan2, N. Duraipandian3, B. Ramakrishnan4
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.105, No.1, pp. 47-68, 2015, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2015.105.047
    Abstract The functions of digital signature and public key encryption are simultaneously fulfilled by signcryption, which is a cryptographic primitive. To securely communicate very large messages, the cryptographic primitive called signcryption efficiently implements the same and while most of the public key based systems are suitable for small messages, hybrid encryption (KEM-DEM) provides a competent and practical way. In this paper, we develop a hybrid signcryption technique. The hybrid signcryption is based on the KEM and DEM technique. The KEM algorithm utilizes the KDF technique to encapsulate the symmetric key. The DEM algorithm utilizes the Adaptive Genetic Algorithm based Elliptic curve… More >

    Analysis and Numerical Simulation of Hydrofracture Crack Propagation in Coal-Rock Bed

    Yiyu Lu1, Chenpeng Song1,2, Yunzhong Jia1, Binwei Xia1, Zhaolong Ge1, Jiren Tang1, Qian Li1
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.105, No.1, pp. 69-86, 2015, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2015.105.069
    Abstract In underground coal mines, hydrofracture can cause the increase of breathability in the fractured coal bed. When the hydrofracture crack propagates to the interface between the coal bed and the roof-floor stratum, the crack may enter roof-floor lithology, thus posing a limit on the scope of breathability increase and making it difficult to support the roof and floor board for subsequent coal mining. In this work, a two-dimensional model of coal rock bed that contains hydrofracture crack was constructed. Then an investigation that combines the fracture mechanics and the system of flow and solid in rock failure process analysis (RFPA2D-Flow)… More >
