    The Influence of Non-Homogeneous Material Properties on ElasticWave Propagation in Fluid-Filled Boreholes

    A. Tadeu1, P. Stanak2, J. Antonio1, J. Sladek2, V. Sladek2
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.107, No.5, pp. 345-378, 2015, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2015.107.345
    Abstract This paper implements a numerical method based on the mutual coupling of the boundary element method (BEM) and the meshless local Petrov-Galerkin (MLPG) method to simulate elastic wave propagation in fluid-filled boreholes. The fluid-solid interaction is solved in the frequency domain assuming longitudinally invariant geometry in the axial direction (2.5D formulation).
    This model is used to assess the influence of the non-homogeneous material properties of a borehole wall that can be caused by a damaged zone, construction process or the ageing of material. The BEM is used to model propagation within the unbounded homogeneous domain and the fluid domain… More >

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.107, No.5, pp. 379-409, 2015, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2015.107.379
    Abstract A computationally efficient numerical method is developed for the prediction of transient response in orthotropic rod and beam structures. The method takes advantage of the outstanding properties of compactly supported Daubechies wavelet scaling functions for the spatial approximation of displacements in a finite domain of the structure, hence is termed Finite Wavelet Domain (FWD) method. The basic principles and advantages of the method are presented and the discretization of the equations of motion is formulated for one-dimensional structures. Numerical results for the simulation of propagating guided waves in rods and strips are presented and compared against traditional finite elements. More >

    Method for Detecting Macroscopic Irregularities in Gears Based on Template Matching and the Nonequivalence Operation

    W.C. Wang1, F.L. Chang2, Y.L. Liu1, X. J. Wu1
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.107, No.5, pp. 411-431, 2015, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2015.107.411
    Abstract The detection of macroscopic irregularities is an essential procedure during the production of gears, and it helps to guarantee the quality of electromechanical transmission equipment. The working principles of template matching and the image nonequivalence operation are described in detail in this paper. Gray-level transformation, edge-preserving filtering, image segmentation, feature extraction, and pattern recognition were analyzed, leading to the design of a defect detection system based on template matching and the nonequivalence operation, followed by the development of a hardware platform and application software for the system. The experimental results indicate that the proposed detection system could perform fast detection… More >
