    A Semi-Discretizing Method Based Efficient Model for Fluidelastic Instability Threshold Prediction of Tube Bundles

    Yuerong Wang1, Jianping Jing1,2,3,*, Changmin Chen1, Sheng Xiong1
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.121, No.1, pp. 1-22, 2019, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2019.06158
    Abstract Fluidelastic instability is destructive in tube bundles subjected to cross flow. Flow channel model proposed by Leaver and Weaver is well used for modeling this problem. However, as the tube motion is supposed to be harmonic, it may not simulate the general dynamic behaviors of tubes. To improve this, a model with arbitrary tube motion is proposed by Hassan and Hayder. While, due to involving in the time delay term, the stability problem cannot be solved by the eigenvalue scheme, and time domain responses of the tube have to be obtained to assess the instability threshold. To overcome this weakness,… More >

    Abstract Road sweeping is an essential service that has to be conducted for public health, as well as aesthetic purposes. In many countries, sweeping vehicles are used for this activity. They usually comprise a gutter brush that sweeps the debris that is located in the road gutter. This work studies the performance of two kinds of gutter brushes: a cutting brush and a flicking (F128) brush. This is carried out by means of a 3-D dynamic, nonlinear Finite Element (FE) brush model developed by the authors. In this model, inertia forces are applied to the bristle, and its clamped end is… More >

    Yang Cheng1, Dehua Li1,*, Wenbin Jiang 2
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.121, No.1, pp. 49-82, 2019, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2019.07657
    Abstract Beta Process is a typical nonparametric Bayesian model. and the Beta Bernoulli Process provides a Bayesian nonparametric prior for models involving collections of binary valued features. Some previous studies considered the Beta Process inference problem by giving the Stick-Breaking sampling method. This paper focuses on analyzing the form of precise probability distribution based on a Stick-Breaking approach, that is, the joint probability distribution is derived from any finite number of observable samples: It not only determines the probability distribution function of the Beta Process with finite observation (represented as a group of number between [0,1]), but also gives the distribution… More >

    Finite Element Investigation of Flow Field Below Asymmetric Drill Bits for Reverse Circulation in Drilling Tight Oil and Gas Reservoirs

    Yi Luo1,*, Erxiu Shi2, Yin Feng2, Boyun Guo2, Liehui Zhang1
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.121, No.1, pp. 105-122, 2019, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2019.06500
    Abstract Development of unconventional tight oil and gas reservoirs such as shale pays presents a huge challenge to the petroleum industry due to the naturally low permeability of shale formations and thus low productivity of oil and gas wells. Shale formations are also vulnerable to the contamination of the water in the drilling and completion fluids, which further reduces reservoir permeability. Although gas-drilling (drilling with gas) has been used to address the issue, several problems such as formation water influx, wellbore collapse, excessive gas volume requirement and hole cleaning in horizontal drilling, still hinder its application. A new technique called gas-lift… More >

    Novel Ensemble Modeling Method for Enhancing Subset Diversity Using Clustering Indicator Vector Based on Stacked Autoencoder

    Yanzhen Wang1, Xuefeng Yan1,*
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.121, No.1, pp. 123-144, 2019, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2019.07052
    Abstract A single model cannot satisfy the high-precision prediction requirements given the high nonlinearity between variables. By contrast, ensemble models can effectively solve this problem. Three key factors for improving the accuracy of ensemble models are namely the high accuracy of a submodel, the diversity between subsample sets and the optimal ensemble method. This study presents an improved ensemble modeling method to improve the prediction precision and generalization capability of the model. Our proposed method first uses a bagging algorithm to generate multiple subsample sets. Second, an indicator vector is defined to describe these subsample sets. Third, subsample sets are selected… More >

    Partitioned Method of Insect Flapping Flight for Maneuvering Analysis

    Minato Onishi1, Daisuke Ishihara1,*
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.121, No.1, pp. 145-175, 2019, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2019.06781
    Abstract This study proposed a partitioned method to analyze maneuvering of insects during flapping flight. This method decomposed the insect flapping flight into wing and body subsystems and then coupled them via boundary conditions imposed on the wing’s base using one-way coupling. In the wing subsystem, the strong coupling of the flexible wings and surrounding fluid was accurately analyzed using the finite element method to obtain the thrust forces acting on the insect’s body. The resulting thrust forces were passed from the wing subsystem to the body subsystem, and then rigid body motion was analyzed in the body subsystem. The rolling,… More >

    Abstract An offshore long-span continuous rigid-frame bridge is taken as an example to study the effect of degradation of bond-slip behavior on the seismic performance of bridges in an offshore environment during a service period. On the basis of a numerical simulation analysis using the OpenSeeS platform, the influence of durability degradation of concrete carbonization, steel corrosion, and degradation of bond-slip performance is considered collectively using incremental dynamic analysis method to examine the time-varying seismic fragility of the offshore bridge. Results show that when bond slip is considered, the exceedance probability of the bridge components and the system increases significantly, and… More >

    Abstract The temperature and the stress distribution in simply-supported laminated cylindrical shells undergo thermal loads on the surface have been investigated. Exact solutions of physical quantities including temperature, heat flux, thermal displacement and stress are developed for the cylindrical laminated shell. Cylindrical shells are partitioned into more thin layers. In cylindrical coordinate, analytical expressions for physical quantities inside each layer are derived. Taking into account the compatibility of physical quantities at the interfaces, the relations between the outer and the inner layer of the laminated shell can be described with a transfer matrix.

    Abstract In this paper, we propose numerical methods for the Riesz space fractional advection-dispersion equations with delay (RFADED). We utilize the fractional backward differential formulas method of second order (FBDF2) and weighted shifted Grünwald difference (WSGD) operators to approximate the Riesz fractional derivative and present the finite difference method for the RFADED. Firstly, the FBDF2 and the shifted Grünwald methods are introduced. Secondly, based on the FBDF2 method and the WSGD operators, the finite difference method is applied to the problem. We also show that our numerical schemes are conditionally stable and convergent with the accuracy of O(k+ h2) and O(k2More >

    Abstract The solid particle impurities generated by pipe wall corrosion might deposit at the elbow of hilly pipelines during the production shutdown of oil pipelines. These solid particle impurities will seriously affect the safety of the pipeline operation and the quality of the petroleum products. Thus, it is necessary to study the methods of removing these trapped particles from pipelines. At present, the most common way to remove these solid particle impurities is pigging oil pipelines periodically by utilizing the mechanical pigging method, while the frequent pigging operation will increase the cost and risk of pipeline operation. It is very convenient… More >

    Surkay D. Akbarov1,2,*, Emin T. Bagirov2
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.121, No.1, pp. 315-348, 2019, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2019.07732
    Abstract The paper deals with the study of the influence of the non-homogeneous pre-stresses in the system consisting of the hollow cylinder and surrounding elastic medium on the frequency response of this system caused by the time-harmonic ring load acting in the interior of the cylinder. The axisymmetric problem is considered and it is assumed that in the initial state, the system is compressed in the radial direction with homogeneously distributed static forces as a result of which, non-homogeneous pre-stresses (or initial stresses) appear in that. It is also assumed that after these pre-stresses appear in the interior of the cylinder,… More >
