    A New Method for Fredholm Integral Equations of 1D Backward Heat Conduction Problems

    Chein-Shan Liu1
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.47, No.1, pp. 1-22, 2009, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2009.047.001
    Abstract In this paper an analytical method for approximating the solution of backward heat conduction problem is presented. The Fourier series expansion technique is used to formulate a first-kind Fredholm integral equation for the temperature field u(x,t) at any time t < T, when the data are specified at a final time T. Then we consider a direct regularization, instead of the Tikhonov regularization, by adding the term αu(x,t) to obtain a second-kind Fredholm integral equation. The termwise separable property of kernel function allows us by transforming it to a two-point boundary value problem, and thus a closed-form solution is derived.… More >

    Low-velocity impact of composites plates using the Radial Point Interpolation Method

    A. Djeukou1, O. von Estorff2
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.47, No.1, pp. 23-42, 2009, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2009.047.023
    Abstract The paper deals with the response of rectangular composite plates to low-velocity impact. A third-order shear deformation theory as well as the Newmark integration are used to determine the contact force history analytically. The interaction between the impactor and the plate is modeled with the help of a two degrees-of-freedom system, consisting of springs and masses. The Choi's linearized Hertzian contact model is used to determine the contact force. The maximum impact force is employed for a static damage analysis of the composite plate by means of the radial point interpolation method, while the Tsai-Wu failure criterion is applied for… More >

    Three Dimensional Nonlinear Temperature and Structural Analysis of Roller compacted Concrete Dam

    J. Noorzaei1, K.H. Bayagoob2, A.A. Abdulrazeg1, M.S. Jaafar1,1, T.A. Mohammed1
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.47, No.1, pp. 43-60, 2009, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2009.047.043
    Abstract This paper focuses on the development, verification and application of a three-dimensional finite element code for coupled thermal and structural analysis of roller compacted concrete dams. The Kinta RCC gravity dam, which is the first roller compacted concrete dam in Malaysia, has been taken for the purpose of verification of the finite element code. The actual climatic conditions and thermal properties of the materials were considered in the analysis. The structural stress analysis was performed using the elasto-plastic stress analysis. The Mohr yield criterion which is widely used for concrete plasticity modeling was adopted in this study. The results have… More >

    Two- and Three-Dimensional Transient Thermoelastic Analysis by the MLPG Method

    J. Sladek1, V. Sladek1, P. Solek2, C.L. Tan3, Ch. Zhang4
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.47, No.1, pp. 61-96, 2009, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2009.047.061
    Abstract The meshless local Petrov-Galerkin (MLPG) method for transient linear thermoelastic analysis is presented. Orthotropic material properties are considered here. In uncoupled thermoelasticity, the temperature field is not influenced by displacements. Therefore, in the first step, the heat conduction equation is solved for the temperature distribution in the domain. The equations of motion are then solved with the inertial term considered. A Heaviside step function as the test functions is applied in the weak-form to derive local integral equations for solving two- and three-dimensional problems. Local integral equations are written on small sub-domains with circular or spherical shapes. They surround nodal… More >
