    Shang Ma1, Xiong Zhang1,2, Yanping Lian1, Xu Zhou3
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.39, No.2, pp. 101-124, 2009, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2009.039.101
    Abstract Numerical simulation of high explosive explosion problems is a big challenge to traditional numerical methods because explosion usually involves extremely large deformation and multi-material interaction of different phases. Recently developed meshfree methods show much advantages over mesh-based method for problems associated with very large deformation. Some of them have been successfully applied to impact and explosion problems, such as smoothed particle hydrodynamics (SPH). Similar to SPH, material point method (MPM) is an efficient meshfree particle method solving continuum problems. With combination of the advantages of Eulerian and Lagrangian methods, MPM is a promising numerical tool for solving large deformation problems,… More >

    A Fictitious Time Integration Method for Solving m-Point Boundary Value Problems

    Chein-Shan Liu1
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.39, No.2, pp. 125-154, 2009, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2009.039.125
    Abstract We propose a new numerical method for solving the boundary value problems of ordinary differential equations (ODEs) under multipoint boundary conditions specified at t = Ti, i = 1,...,m, where T1 < ... < Tm. The finite difference scheme is used to approximate the ODEs, which together with the m-point boundary conditions constitute a system of nonlinear algebraic equations (NAEs). Then a Fictitious Time Integration Method (FTIM) is used to solve these NAEs. Numerical examples confirm that the new approach is highly accurate and efficient with a fast convergence. The FTIM can also be used to find the periods of… More >

    Axisymmetric longitudinal wave propagation in a finite pre-strained compound circular cylinder made from compressible materials

    Surkay D. Akbarov1,2,3, Mugan S. Guliev4
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.39, No.2, pp. 155-178, 2009, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2009.039.155
    Abstract The axisymmetric longitudinal wave propagation in a finite pre-strained compound (composite) cylinder is investigated within the scope of a piecewise homogeneous body model utilizing three-dimensional linearized theory wave propagation in an initially stressed body. The materials of the inner and outer cylinder are assumed to be compressible. The elasticity relations for those are given through the harmonic potential. The algorithm for constructing of the computer programmes and obtaining numerical results is discussed. The numerical results regarding the influences of the initial strains in the inner and outer cylinders on the wave dispersion are presented and analysed. These results are obtained… More >

    Molecular Dynamics Simulation for the Atomization Process of a Nanojet

    Chun-Lang Yeh1
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.39, No.2, pp. 179-200, 2009, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2009.039.179
    Abstract In this research, the atomization process of a nanojet is investigated by molecular dynamics simulation. Liquid argon nanojet made of 44000 Lennard-Jones molecules is examined under various simulation parameters to study their influence on the nanojet atomization process. Snapshots of the molecules, evolution of the density field, and evolution of the intermolecular force are analyzed. The present simulation results can provide insight into the fundamental mechanism of the atomization process and will be helpful for the design of nanojet devices such as nano-printer or nano-sprayer.
