    Dengfeng Su1, Yong Kang1,2,*, Xiaochuan Wang2, andan Zheng1, DongyangLi1, Binyuan Yan1, Fuwen Yan1
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.111, No.5, pp. 375-393, 2016, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2016.111.375
    Abstract Tunnel though coal seam is one of the most difficult tunnels since its risk of coal and gas outburst and the complex geological conditions. According to the directional cutting of water jet and the characteristic of the coal seam and rock mass, this paper presents a new method of tunnelling though coal seam assisted by water jet slotting, which can be divided into improving permeability of coal seam and directional cracking in the rock mass. The mechanism of improving permeability of coal seam was stated, and the crack criterion of rock during blasting was established based on fracture theory. Then,… More >

    The Numerical Accuracy Analysis of Asymptotic Homogenization Method and Multiscale Finite Element Method for Periodic Composite Materials

    Hao Dong1, Yufeng Nie1,2, Zihao Yang1, Yang Zhang1, Yatao Wu1
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.111, No.5, pp. 395-419, 2016, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2016.111.395
    Abstract In this paper, we discuss the numerical accuracy of asymptotic homogenization method (AHM) and multiscale finite element method (MsFEM) for periodic composite materials. Through numerical calculation of the model problems for four kinds of typical periodic composite materials, the main factors to determine the accuracy of first-order AHM and second-order AHM are found, and the physical interpretation of these factors is given. Furthermore, the way to recover multiscale solutions of first-order AHM and MsFEM is theoretically analyzed, and it is found that first-order AHM and MsFEM provide similar multiscale solutions under some assumptions. Finally, numerical experiments verify that MsFEM is… More >

    A Homogenized Function to Recover Wave Source by Solving a Small Scale Linear System of Differencing Equations

    Chein-Shan Liu1,2,3, Wen Chen1, Ji Lin1
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.111, No.5, pp. 421-435, 2016, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2016.111.421
    Abstract In order to recover unknown space-dependent function G(x) or unknown time-dependent function H(t) in the wave source F(x; t) = G(x)H(t), we develop a technique of homogenized function and differencing equations, which can significantly reduce the difficulty in the inverse wave source recovery problem, only needing to solve a few equations in the problem domain, since the initial condition/ boundary conditions and a supplementary final time condition are satisfied automatically. As a consequence, the eigenfunctions are used to expand the trial solutions, and then a small scale linear system is solved to determine the expansion coefficients from the differencing equations.… More >

    Simple Efficient Smart Finite Elements for the Analysis of Smart Composite Beams

    M. C. Ray1, L. Dong2, S. N. Atluri3
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.111, No.5, pp. 437-471, 2016, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2016.111.437
    Abstract This paper is concerned with the development of new simple 4-noded locking-alleviated smart finite elements for modeling the smart composite beams. The exact solutions for the static responses of the overall smart composite beams are also derived for authenticating the new smart finite elements. The overall smart composite beam is composed of a laminated substrate conventional composite beam, and a piezoelectric layer attached at the top surface of the substrate beam. The piezoelectric layer acts as the actuator layer of the smart beam. Alternate finite element models of the beams, based on an "equivalent single layer high order shear deformation… More >
