    Linear Interface Crack under Plane Shear Wave

    M.V. Menshykova1, O.V. Menshykov, I.A. Guz
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.48, No.2, pp. 107-120, 2009, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2009.048.107
    Abstract The study is devoted to the problem for a linear crack located between two dissimilar elastic half-spaces under normally incident time-harmonic plane shear wave. The system of boundary integral equations for displacements and tractions is derived from the dynamic Somigliana identity. The distributions of the displacements and tractions at the bonding interface and the surface of the crack are analysed. The dynamic stress intensity factors (the opening and the transverse shear modes) are computed as functions of the frequency of the incident wave for different material properties. More >

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.48, No.2, pp. 121-154, 2009, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2009.048.121
    Abstract We investigate the numerical implementation of the alternating iterative algorithm originally proposed by ` 12 ` 12 `$12 `&12 `#12 `^12 `_12 `%12 `~12 *Kozlov91 in the case of the Cauchy problem for the two-dimensional Laplace equation using a meshless method. The two mixed, well-posed and direct problems corresponding to every iteration of the numerical procedure are solved using the method of fundamental solutions (MFS), in conjunction with the Tikhonov regularization method. For each direct problem considered, the optimal value of the regularization parameter is chosen according to the generalized cross-validation (GCV) criterion. An efficient regularizing stopping criterion which ceases… More >

    Development of a Numerical Toolbox for the Computer Aided Design of Composite Over-Wrapped Pressure Vessels

    Eugenio Brusa1, Matteo Nobile2
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.48, No.2, pp. 155-190, 2009, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2009.048.155
    Abstract Lightness of high pressure vessels is currently assured by composite materials. Construction of over-wrapped composite pressure vessels with inner metallic liner is for instance compatible with standards requirements of the hydrogen technology of energy storage. Therefore a typical layout manufactured by some industries consists of a cylindrical vessel with covering of carbon-epoxy laminates and metallic impermeable liner. To allow the filament winding of the composite fibres are used hoop and helical layers, respectively. A single nozzle is usually built. It requires that the vessel material is reinforced. This need imposes to have a variable thickness in the composite layer. In… More >

    The Inverse Problem of Determining Heat Transfer Coefficients by the Meshless Local Petrov-Galerkin Method

    J. Sladek1, V. Sladek1, P.H. Wen2, Y.C. Hon3
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.48, No.2, pp. 191-218, 2009, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2009.048.191
    Abstract The meshless local Petrov-Galerkin (MLPG) method is used to solve the inverse heat conduction problem of predicting the distribution of the heat transfer coefficient on the boundary of 2-D and axisymmetric bodies. Using this method, nodes are randomly distributed over the numerical solution domain, and surrounding each of these nodes, a circular sub-domain is introduced. By choosing a unit step function as the test function, the local integral equations (LIE) on the boundaries of these sub-domains are derived. To eliminate the time variation in the governing equation, the Laplace transform technique is applied. The local integral equations are nonsingular and… More >
