    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.31, No.1, pp. 1-12, 2008, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2008.031.001
    Abstract This paper presents a new assignment algorithm with order restriction. Our optimization algorithm was developed using dynamic programming. It was implemented and tested to determine the best global matching that preserves the order of the points that define two contours to be matched. In the experimental tests done, we used the affinity matrix obtained via the method proposed by Shapiro, based on geometric modeling and modal matching. \newline The proposed algorithm revealed an optimum performance, when compared with classic assignment algorithms: Hungarian Method, Simplex for Flow Problems and LAPm. Indeed, the quality of the matching improved when compared with these… More >

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.31, No.1, pp. 13-24, 2008, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2008.031.013
    Abstract This paper presents large-scale finite element analyses of high frequency electromagnetic fields in commuter trains. The ADVENTURE_Magnetic is one of the main modules of the ADVENTURE system, which is an open source parallel finite element analyses system, and is able to solve eddy current and magnetostatic problems using the hierarchical domain decomposition method (HDDM) with an iterative linear algebraic solver. In this paper, we improve the module so as to solve a high frequency electromagnetic field of 500-1000 M[Hz]. A stationary Helmholtz equation for electromagnetic wave problems is solved taking an electric field as an unknown function. In this study,… More >

    Vibration Analysis of Membranes with Arbitrary Sapes Using Discrete Singular Convolution

    Ömer Civalek 1
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.31, No.1, pp. 25-36, 2008, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2008.031.025
    Abstract In this paper, free vibration analysis of curvilinear or straight-sided quadrilateral membranes is presented. In the proposed approach, irregular physical domain is transformed into a rectangular domain by using geometric coordinate transformation. For demonstration of the accuracy and convergence of the method, some numerical examples are provided on membranes with different geometry such as skew, trapezoidal, sectorial, annular sectorial, and membranes with four curved edges. The results obtained by the DSC method are compared with those obtained by other numerical and analytical methods. More >

    A Cell-less BEM Formulation for 2D and 3D Elastoplastic Problems Using Particular Integrals

    A. Owatsiriwong1, B. Phansri1, K.H. Park1,2
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.31, No.1, pp. 37-60, 2008, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2008.031.037
    Abstract This study deals with the particular integral formulation for two (2D) and three (3D) dimensional elastoplastic analyses. The elastostatic equation is used for the complementary solution. The particular integrals for displacement, stress and traction rates are derived by introducing the concept of global shape function to approximate an initial stress rate term of the inhomogeneous equation. The Newton-Raphson algorithm for the plastic multiplier is used to solve the system equation. The developed program is integrated with the pre- and post-processor. The collapse analyses of the smooth flexible strip, square and circular footings are given by comparing the numerical results of… More >
