    Elastodynamic Analysis of Thick Multilayer Composite Plates by The Boundary Element Method

    J. Useche1, H. Alvarez1
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.107, No.4, pp. 277-296, 2015, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2015.107.277
    Abstract Dynamic stress analysis of laminated composites plates represents a relevant task in designing of aerospace, shipbuilding and automotive components where impulsive loads can lead to sudden structural failure. The mechanical complexity inherent to these kind of components makes the numerical modeling an essential engineering analysis tool. This work deals with dynamic analysis of stresses and deformations in laminated composites thick plates using a new Boundary Element Method formulation. Composite laminated plates were modeled using the Reissner’s plate theory. We propose a direct time-domain formulation based on elastostatic fundamental solution for symmetrical laminated thick plates. Formulation takes into account the rotational… More >

    Large Eddy Simulation Combined with Characteristic-Based Operator-Splitting Finite Element Method

    Da-guo Wang1,2, Bin Hu1, Qing-xiang Shui1
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.107, No.4, pp. 297-320, 2015, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2015.107.297
    Abstract A numerical large eddy simulation (LES) method combined with the characteristic-based operator-splitting finite element method is proposed. The subgrid eddy viscosity model is used to calculate sub-grid stress in LES. In each time step, the governing equations are split into diffusive and convective parts. The convective part is first discretized by using the characteristic Galerkin method and then solved explicitly. The backward-facing step flow and the flow past a single cylinder are adopted to validate the model. Results agree with existing numerical results or experimental data. The flow past two cylinders in tandem arrangement is also studied at Re =… More >

    An Advanced ACA/BEM for Solving 2D Large-Scale Elastic Problems with Multi-Connected Domains

    T. Gortsas1, S.V. Tsinopoulos2, D. Polyzos1,3
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.107, No.4, pp. 321-343, 2015, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2015.107.321
    Abstract An advanced Boundary Element method (BEM) accelerated via Adaptive Cross Approximation (ACA) and Hierarchical Matrices (HM) techniques is presented for the solution of large-scale elastostatic problems with multi-connected domains like in fiber reinforced composite materials. Although the proposed ACA/ BEM is demonstrated for two-dimensional (2D) problems, it is quite general and it can be used for 3D problems. Different forms of ACA technique are employed for exploring their efficiency when they combined with a BEM code. More precisely, the fully and partially pivoted ACA with and without recompression are utilized, while the solution of the final linear system of equations… More >
