    A. M. E. Ramírez-Mendoza1
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.115, No.3, pp. 295-311, 2018, DOI: 10.3970/cmes.2018.00239
    Abstract A spike response model (SRM) based on the spikes generator circuit (SGC) of adaptive fuzzy spiking neurons (AFSNs) is developed. The SRM is simulated in MatlabTM environment. The proposed model is applied to a configuration of a fuzzy exclusive or (fuzzy XOR) operator, as an illustrative example. A description of the comparison of AFSNs with other similar methods is given. The novel method of the AFSNs is used to determine the value of the weights or parameters of the fuzzy XOR, first with dynamic weights or self-tuning parameters that adapt continuously, then with fixed weights obtained after training, finally with… More >

    Extrapolation Method for Cauchy Principal Value Integral with Classical Rectangle Rule on Interval

    Maohui Xia1, Jin Li*,2
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.115, No.3, pp. 313-326, 2018, DOI: 10.3970/cmes.2018.08053
    Abstract In this paper, the classical composite middle rectangle rule for the computation of Cauchy principal value integral (the singular kernel 1/(x-s)) is discussed. With the density function approximated only while the singular kernel is calculated analysis, then the error functional of asymptotic expansion is obtained. We construct a series to approach the singular point. An extrapolation algorithm is presented and the convergence rate of extrapolation algorithm is proved. At last, some numerical results are presented to confirm the theoretical results and show the efficiency of the algorithms. More >

    Modeling and Analysis of Global and Diffuse Solar Irradiation Components Using the Satellite Estimation Method of HELIOSAT

    Selmin Ener Rusen1
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.115, No.3, pp. 327-343, 2018, DOI: 10.3970/cmes.2018.00159
    Abstract It is very important to determine the daily horizontal global, diffuse and beam irradiations correctly in planning energy systems, in cost analysis, in the atmosphere, and in the productivity evaluations. Besides, the knowledge of accurate solar irradiation is the most important component of the essential climate variables according to the Global Climate Observing System (GCOS) in August 2010. It is known that the changes of these irradiation parameters directly affect our atmosphere and cloud formation processes. Turkey is one of the countries, which has high solar energy potential by reason of its climatic and regional factors. Especially, Konya and Karaman… More >

    Numerical Investigation of the Effect of Sorption Time on Coal Permeability and Gas Pressure

    Yi Xue1,2,*, Faning Dang2, Rongjian Li2, Fei Liu3
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.115, No.3, pp. 345-358, 2018, DOI: 10.3970/cmes.2018.08052
    Abstract Adsorption deformation significantly affects the seepage characteristics of coal. However, effect of sorption time on coal permeability and gas pressure has not been investigated systematically. In this study, the sorption experiment of coal samples is conducted to elaborate the importance of sorption equilibration time. Then a coupled coal deformation and gas flow model is established considering the sorption characteristic and permeability evolution. This coupled model is implemented through finite element method to analyze the effect of sorption time on coal permeability and gas pressure. The simulation results reveal that the gas pressure of the coal will change with the adsorption… More >

    A Pathway to Explore the Hidden Specialty in the Design of Fifteen Level Inverter in Grid Connected PV System

    C. Gopinath1, *, M. Rajvikram1
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.115, No.3, pp. 359-386, 2018, DOI: 10.3970/cmes.2018.06143
    Abstract This research paper proposes a single phase fifteen level inverter for a grid connected PV system. The proposed inverter is also called cascaded asymmetric multilevel inverter. By adopting appropriate hybrid modulation technique improved output voltage is obtained with minimum number of power electronic switches. By reducing the number of gate triggering circuits of the switches, the size and power consumption of the driving circuits can be reduced. The total harmonic distortion of the output of the inverter is improved by this inverter. The proposed inverter developed by cascading a full bridge inverter with modified H bridge multilevel inverter. The validity… More >

    Theory and Calculation of the J-Integral for Coupled Chemo-Mechanical Fracture Mechanics

    Wei Wei1, Qingsheng Yang2,*, Xia Liu2, Xiaoqiao He3,*, Kim-Meow Liew3
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.115, No.3, pp. 387-409, 2018, DOI: 10.3970/cmes.2018.01856
    Abstract In this paper, by introducing a chemical field, the J-integral formulation is presented for the chemo-mechanical coupled medium based on the laws of thermodynamics. A finite element implementation of the J-integral was performed to study the mode I chemo-mechanical coupled fracture problem. For derivation of the coupled J-integral, the equivalent domain integral (EDI) method was applied to obtain the mode I J-integral, with expression of the area integrals based on constitutive relationships of a linear elastic small deformation for chemo-mechanical coupling, instead of the finite deformation problem. A finite element procedure is developed to compute the mode I J-integral, and… More >
