    A New Local Contact Search Method Using a Multi-Layer Neural Network

    Atsuya Oishi1, Shinobu Yoshimura2
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.21, No.2, pp. 93-104, 2007, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2007.021.093
    Abstract This paper describes a new local contact search method using a multi-layer neural network and its application to smoothed contact surface consisting of Gregory patches. A contact search process consists of two phases: a global search phase for finding the nearest node-segment pair and a local search phase for finding an exact local coordinate of the contact point within the segment. In the present method, the multi-layer neural network is utilized in the latter phase. The fundamental formulation of the proposed local contact search method is described in detail, and it is applied to smoothed contact surfaces consisting of Gregory… More >

    Slow Viscous Migration of a Conducting Solid Particle under the Action of Uniform Ambient Electric and Magnetic Fields

    A. Sellier1
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.21, No.2, pp. 105-132, 2007, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2007.021.105
    Abstract We examine the low-Reynolds-number migration of a conducting and arbitrarily-shaped solid particle freely immersed in a metal liquid of different conductivity when subject to uniform ambient electric and magnetic fields. The boundary formulation established elsewhere for an insulating particle is extended and the incurred particle's rigid-body motion is then obtained by determinating a very few surface quantities on the particle's surface. The behavior of either oblate or prolate conducting spheroids is analytically investigated and the poposed procedure for the challenging case of other non-trivial geometries is implemented and benchmarked against those solutions. The numerical implementation makes it possible to obtain… More >

    Genetic Programming Metamodel for Rotating Beams

    Anuj Pratap Singh, V. Mani, Ranjan Ganguli1
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.21, No.2, pp. 133-148, 2007, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2007.021.133
    Abstract This paper investigates the use of Genetic Programming (GP) to create an approximate model for the non-linear relationship between flexural stiffness, length, mass per unit length and rotation speed associated with rotating beams and their natural frequencies. GP, a relatively new form of artificial intelligence, is derived from the Darwinian concept of evolution and genetics and it creates computer programs to solve problems by manipulating their tree structures. GP predicts the size and structural complexity of the empirical model by minimizing the mean square error at the specified points of input-output relationship dataset. This dataset is generated using a finite… More >

    Wind Set-down Relaxation

    Baran Aydın1,2, Utku Kânoğlu3
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.21, No.2, pp. 149-156, 2007, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2007.021.149
    Abstract We developed analytical solutions to the wind set-down and the wind set-down relaxation problems. The response of the ocean to the wind blowing over a long-narrow and linearly sloping shallow basin is referred to as wind set-down. The shoreline exhibits oscillatory behavior when the wind calms down and the resulting problem is referred to as wind set-down relaxation. We use an existing hodograph-type transformation that was introduced to solve the nonlinear shallow-water wave equations analytically for long wave propagation and obtain an explicit-transform analytical solution for wind set-down. For the wind set-down relaxation, the nonlinear shallow-water wave equations are solved… More >

    Acoustic Scattering in Prolate Spheroidal Geometry via Vekua Tranformation -- Theory and Numerical Results

    L.N. Gergidis, D. Kourounis, S. Mavratzas, A. Charalambopoulos1
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.21, No.2, pp. 157-176, 2007, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2007.021.157
    Abstract A new complete set of scattering eigensolutions of Helmholtz equation in spheroidal geometry is constructed in this paper. It is based on the extension to exterior boundary value problems of the well known Vekua transformation pair, which connects the kernels of Laplace and Helmholtz operators. The derivation of this set is purely analytic. It avoids the implication of the spheroidal wave functions along with their accompanying numerical deficiencies. Using this novel set of eigensolutions, we solve the acoustic scattering problem from a soft acoustic spheroidal scatterer, by expanding the scattered field in terms of it. Two approaches concerning the determination… More >
