    Abstract We propose an image correction method that will accurately measure full-field displacement in a microstructure using the digital image correlation method (DICM); the proposed method is suitable for use with laser-scanned images. Laser scanning microscopes have higher spatial resolution and deeper depth of field than optical microscopes, but errors in laser scanning position (time-dependent distortion) affect the accuracy of the DICM. The proposed image correction method involves the removal of both time-dependant and time-independent distortions. Experimental results using images of prescribed rigid-body motions demonstrate that the proposed correction method is capable of identifying and removing both types of distortion.

    Fast BEM Solvers for 3D Poisson-Type Equations

    Xuefei He1, Kian-Meng Lim1,2,3, Siak-Piang Lim1,2
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.35, No.1, pp. 21-48, 2008, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2008.035.021
    Abstract The boundary element method (BEM) is known to have the advantage of reducing the dimension of problem by discretizing only the boundary of the domain. But it becomes less attractive for solving Poisson-type equations, due to the need to evaluate the domain integral which is computationally expensive. In this paper, we present the extension of a recently developed fast algorithm for Laplace equation, based on fast Fourier transform on multipoles (FFTM), to solve large scale 3D Poisson-type equations. We combined the Laplace solver with two fast methods for handling the domain integral based on fast Fourier transform (FFT). The first… More >

    Inverse Scatterer Reconstruction in a Halfplane Using Surficial SH Line Sources

    C. Jeong1, L.F. Kallivokas2
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.35, No.1, pp. 49-72, 2008, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2008.035.049
    Abstract We discuss the inverse scattering problem of identifying the shape and location of a rigid scatterer fully buried in a homogeneous halfplane, when illuminated by surficial (line) wave sources generating SH waves. To this end, we consider the full-waveform response of the coupled host-obstacle system in the frequency domain, and employ the apparatus of partial-differential-equation-constrained optimization, augmented with total differentiation for tracking shape evolutions across inversion iterations, and specialized continuation schemes in lieu of formal regularization. We report numerical results that provide evidence of algorithmic robustness for detecting a variety of shapes, including elliptically- and kite-shaped obstacles. More >

    Continuation Schemes for Shape Detection in Inverse Acoustic Scattering Problems

    S.-W. Na1, L.F. Kallivokas2
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.35, No.1, pp. 73-90, 2008, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2008.035.073
    Abstract We discuss simple numerical schemes, termed continuation schemes, for detecting the location and shape of a scatterer embedded in a host acoustic medium, when considering scant measurements of the scattered acoustic pressure in the vicinity (near- or far-field) of the obstacle. The detection is based on incomplete information, i.e., the measurement stations are distributed in the backscatter region and do not circumscribe the sought scatterer. We consider sound-hard scatterers, and use boundary integral equations for the underlying numerical scheme. We favor amplitude-based misfit functionals, and use frequency- and directionality-continuation schemes to resolve the scatterer's location and shape. We report on… More >
