    A Metal Forming Analysis by Using the Hybrid PCM/FEM

    Y.-M. Guo1
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.41, No.3, pp. 177-194, 2009, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2009.041.177
    Abstract In this paper, for analyses of the rigid-plastic metal forming problems, a hybrid PCM/FEM is developed. By introducing a boundary layer of finite element in boundary domain of workpiece, unsatisfactory issue of the positivity conditions of boundary points can be avoided, and the complicated boundary conditions can be easily imposed with the boundary layer of finite element. A plane strain upsetting process is analyzed by using the hybrid PCM/FEM. More >

    Stress Analysis of 3D Generally Anisotropic Elastic Solids Using the Boundary Element Method

    C. L. Tan1, Y.C. Shiah2, C.W. Lin2
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.41, No.3, pp. 195-214, 2009, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2009.041.195
    Abstract The explicit, closed-form expressions of the Green's functions for generally anisotropic elastic solids in three-dimensions that have been derived using Stroh's formalism are employed in a formulation of the boundary element method (BEM). Unlike several other existing schemes, the evaluation of these fundamental solutions does not require further numerical integration in the BEM algorithm; they have surprisingly not been implemented previously. Three numerical examples are presented to demonstrate the veracity of the implementation and the general applicability of the BEM for the 3D elastic stress analysis of generally anisotropic solids. The results are compared with known solutions in the literature… More >

    Elastic transient analysis with MLPG(LBIE) method and local RBFs

    E. J. Sellountos1, A. Sequeira1, D. Polyzos2
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.41, No.3, pp. 215-242, 2009, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2009.041.215
    Abstract A Meshless Local Petrov-Galerkin (MLPG) method based on Local Boundary Integral Equation (LBIE) techniques is employed here for the solution of transient elastic problems with damping. The Radial Basis Functions (RBF) interpolation scheme is exploited for the meshless representation of displacements throughout the computational domain. On the intersections between the local domains and the global boundary, tractions are treated as independent variables via conventional boundary interpolation functions. The MLPG(LBIE)/RBF method is applied to both transient and steady-state Fourier transform elastodynamic domains. In both cases the LBIEs employ the simple elastostatic fundamental solution instead of the complicated time and frequency dependent… More >

    A Fictitious Time Integration Method for the Numerical Solution of the Fredholm Integral Equation and for Numerical Differentiation of Noisy Data, and Its Relation to the Filter Theory

    Chein-Shan Liu1, Satya N. Atluri2
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.41, No.3, pp. 243-262, 2009, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2009.041.243
    Abstract The Fictitious Time Integration Method (FTIM) previously developed by Liu and Atluri (2008a) is employed here to solve a system of ill-posed linear algebraic equations, which may result from the discretization of a first-kind linear Fredholm integral equation. We rationalize the mathematical foundation of the FTIM by relating it to the well-known filter theory. For the linear ordinary differential equations which are obtained through the FTIM (and which are equivalently used in FTIM to solve the ill-posed linear algebraic equations), we find that the fictitous time plays the role of a regularization parameter, and its filtering effect is better than… More >
