    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.28, No.1, pp. 1-14, 2008, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2008.028.001
    Abstract Experimental observations have shown that the inherent deformation produced by multi-heating lines is not a simple addition of the inherent deformation produced by single heating lines. Therefore, to accurately predict inherent deformation, the method of superposing inherent deformation of single heating lines is not appropriate. To overcome this difficulty, the authors investigate the influence of multi-heating lines on line heating inherent deformation. First, the influence of previous heating lines on inherent deformation of overlapping, parallel and crossing heating lines is clarified. The influence of the proximity to plate side edge on inherent deformation is also taken into account in the… More >

    Finite Rotation Geometrically Exact Four-Node Solid-Shell Element with Seven Displacement Degrees of Freedom

    G. M. Kulikov1, S. V. Plotnikova1
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.28, No.1, pp. 15-38, 2008, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2008.028.015
    Abstract This paper presents a robust non-linear geometrically exact four-node solid-shell element based on the first-order seven-parameter equivalent single-layer theory, which permits us to utilize the 3D constitutive equations. The term "geometrically exact" reflects the fact that geometry of the reference surface is described by analytically given functions and displacement vectors are resolved in the reference surface frame. As fundamental shell unknowns six displacements of the outer surfaces and a transverse displacement of the midsurface are chosen. Such choice of displacements gives the possibility to derive strain-displacement relationships, which are invariant under arbitrarily large rigid-body shell motions in a convected curvilinear… More >

    A Combined Approach of the MLPG Method and Nonlinear Programming for Lower-Bound Limit Analysis

    S. S. Chen1, Y. H. Liu1,2, Z. Z. Cen1
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.28, No.1, pp. 39-56, 2008, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2008.028.039
    Abstract In most engineering applications, solutions derived from the lower-bound theorem of plastic limit analysis are particularly valuable because they provide a safe estimate of the load that will cause plastic collapse. A solution procedure based on the meshless local Petrov-Galerkin (MLPG) method is proposed for lower-bound limit analysis. This is the first work for lower-bound limit analysis by this meshless local weak form method. In the construction of trial functions, the natural neighbour interpolation (NNI) is employed to simplify the treatment of the essential boundary conditions. The discretized limit analysis problem is solved numerically with the reduced-basis technique. The self-equilibrium… More >

    Thermal Bending of Reissner-Mindlin Plates by the MLPG

    J. Sladek1, V. Sladek1, P. Solek2, P.H. Wen3
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.28, No.1, pp. 57-76, 2008, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2008.028.057
    Abstract A meshless local Petrov-Galerkin (MLPG) method is applied to solve thermal bending problems described by the Reissner-Mindlin theory. Both stationary and thermal shock loads are analyzed here. Functionally graded material properties with continuous variation in the plate thickness direction are considered here. The Laplace-transformation is used to treat the time dependence of the variables for transient problems. A weak formulation for the set of governing equations in the Reissner-Mindlin theory is transformed into local integral equations on local subdomains in the mean surface of the plate by using a unit test function. Nodal points are randomly spread on the surface… More >
