    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.32, No.3, pp. 113-122, 2008, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2008.032.113
    Abstract A post-processing scheme is presented to accurately determine transverse shear and normal stresses in composite panels undergoing geometrically nonlinear deformation under dynamic loading conditions. Transverse stresses are assumed through thickness at a point of interest and are recovered via a one-dimensional finite element method. The finite element method is based on the least square functional of the error in the equilibrium equation along the thickness direction and utilizes the in-plane stresses and resultant transverse shear forces per unit length obtained by a shell element analysis. Numerical results demonstrate that, with minimal addition of computational efforts, the present post-processing approach can… More >

    Force State Maps Using Reproducing Kernel Particle Method and Kriging Based Functional Representations

    Vikas Namdeo1,2, C S Manohar1,3
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.32, No.3, pp. 123-160, 2008, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2008.032.123
    Abstract The problem of identification of nonlinear system parameters from measured time histories of response under known excitations is considered. Solutions to this problem are obtained by using the force state mapping technique with two alternative functional representation schemes. These schemes are based on the application of reproducing kernel particle method (RKPM) and kriging techniques to fit the force state map. The RKPM has the capability to reproduce exactly polynomials of specified order at any point in a given domain. The kriging based methods represent the function under study as a random field and the parameters describing this field are optimally… More >

    Analysis of Transient Heat Conduction in 3D Anisotropic Functionally Graded Solids, by the MLPG Method

    J. Sladek1, V. Sladek1, C.L. Tan2, S.N. Atluri3
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.32, No.3, pp. 161-174, 2008, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2008.032.161
    Abstract A meshless method based on the local Petrov-Galerkin approach is proposed for the solution of steady-state and transient heat conduction problems in a continuously non-homogeneous anisotropic medium. The Laplace transform is used to treat the time dependence of the variables for transient problems. The analyzed domain is covered by small subdomains with a simple geometry. A weak formulation for the set of governing equations is transformed into local integral equations on local subdomains by using a unit test function. Nodal points are randomly distributed in the 3D analyzed domain and each node is surrounded by a spherical subdomain to which… More >

    Nonlinear Dynamical Analysis of Cavitation in Anisotropic Incompressible Hyperelastic Spheres under Periodic Step Loads

    X.G. Yuan1,2, H.W. Zhang1
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.32, No.3, pp. 175-184, 2008, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2008.032.175
    Abstract In this paper, a dynamic problem that describes void formation and motion in an incompressible hyperelastic solid sphere composed of a transversely isotropic Valanis-Landel material is examined, where the sphere is subjected to a class of periodic step tensile loads on its surface. A motion equation of void is derived. On analyzing the dynamical properties of the motion equation and examining the effect of material anisotropy on void formation and motion in the sphere, we obtain some new and interesting results. Firstly, under a constant surface tensile load, it is proved that a void would form in the sphere as… More >
