    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.23, No.1, pp. 1-12, 2008, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2008.023.001
    Abstract A class of flat shell elements is constructed by using the scaling functions of two-dimensional tensor product B-spline wavelet on the interval (BSWI). Unlike the process of direct wavelets adding in the wavelet Galerkin method, the element displacement field represented by the coefficients of wavelets expansions was transformed from wavelet space into physical space via the constructed two-dimensional transformation matrix. Then, the BSWI flat shell element is constructed by the assembly of BSWI plane elastomechanics and Mindlin plate elements. Because of the good character of BSWI scaling functions, the BSWI flat shell element combine the accuracy of B-spline functions approximation… More >

    Analysis of EDL Effect for Pressure-Driven 3D Developing Micro-Scale Flow

    E. Y. K. Ng1, S. T. Tan2
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.23, No.1, pp. 13-28, 2008, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2008.023.013
    Abstract Microchannels have been recognized as a very effective chemical separation and heat transfer device. The electrical double layer (EDL) effect in a micro-scale flow is however anticipated to be critical. In this paper, Nernst-Planck model (NPM), is used to predict the ion concentration distribution as it is reported to be a more appropriate model for developing microchannel flow. The governing equations are discretised for developing rectangular microchannel flows in Cartesians coordinate. An additional body force source term that is relating to the electric potential, resulted from the EDL effect is introduced in the conventional z-axis momentum equation as a body… More >

    Investigation of Multi Geometric Uncertainties by Different Polynomial Chaos Methodologies Using a Fictitious Domain Solver

    L. Parussini1, V. Pediroda2
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.23, No.1, pp. 29-52, 2008, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2008.023.029
    Abstract In this paper different Polynomial Chaos methods coupled to Fictitious Domain approach have been applied to one- and two- dimensional elliptic problems with multi uncertain variables in order to compare the accuracy and convergence of the methodologies. Both intrusive and non-intrusive methods have been considered, with particular attention to their employment for quantification of geometric uncertainties. A Fictitious Domain approach with Least-Squares Spectral Element approximation has been employed for the analysis of differential problems with uncertain boundary domains. Its main advantage lies in the fact that only a Cartesian mesh, that represents the enclosure, needs to be generated. Excellent accuracy… More >

    Consolidation of a Soft Clay Composite: Experimental Results and Computational Estimates

    A.P.S. Selvadurai1, H. Ghiabi2
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.23, No.1, pp. 53-74, 2008, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2008.023.053
    Abstract This paper deals with the problem of the consolidation of a composite consisting of alternate layers of soft clay and a granular material. A series of experiments were conducted on components to develop the constitutive models that can be implemented in a computational approach. The constitutive response of the soft clay is represented by a poro-elasto-plastic Cam clay-based model and the granular medium by an elasto-plastic model with a Drucker-Prager type failure criterion and a non-associated flow rule. The computational poro-elasto-plastic model is used to calibrate the experimental results derived from the one-dimensional tests and to establish the influence of… More >
