    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.49, No.1, pp. 1-22, 2009, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2009.049.001
    Abstract This paper presents research towards the development of an analysis technique for predicting the interaction of large ocean waves with ships and offshore structures specifically with respect to the extent of deck submersion, impact loads and the level of structural damage caused. The coupled SPH - Finite Element approach is used, where the water is modeled with SPH and the structure with shell or continuum finite elements. Details of the approach are presented, including the SPH-FE contact and the fluid boundary conditions. Simulation results show that the method can correctly represent the behavior of a floating structure and the structural… More >

    A Rate-Dependent Damage/Decohesion Model for Simulating Glass Fragmentation under Impact using the Material Point Method

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.49, No.1, pp. 23-46, 2009, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2009.049.023
    Abstract A bifurcation-based simulation procedure is proposed in this paper to explore the transition from localization to decohesion involved in the glass fragmentation under impact loading. In the proposed procedure, the onset and orientation of discontinuous failure of glass is identified from the bifurcation analysis based on a rate-dependent tensile damage model. The material point method, which does not involve fixed mesh connectivity, is employed to accommodate the multi-scale discontinuities associated with the fragmentation of glass using a simple interface treatment. A parametric study has been conducted to demonstrate the effects of specimen size and impact velocity on the evolution of… More >

    Dynamical Response of Two Axially Pre-Strained System Comprising of a Covering Layer and a Half Space to Rectangular Time-Harmonic Forces

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.49, No.1, pp. 47-68, 2009, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2009.049.047
    Abstract The time-harmonic dynamical stress field in the system comprising two axially pre-stressed covering layer and two axially pre-stressed half space was studied under the action of uniformly distributed forces on free face plane of the covering layer. It is assumed that the forces are distributed within the rectangular area. The study was conducted within the scope of the piecewise homogeneous body model with the use of three-dimensional theory of elastic waves in an initially stressed bodies. The materials of the layer and half-space were assumed to be isotropic and homogeneous. The corresponding three-dimensional boundary-value-contact problem was solved by applying double… More >

    Stability Loss in Nanotube Reinforced Composites

    A.N. Guz, V.A. Dekret1
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.49, No.1, pp. 69-80, 2009, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2009.049.069
    Abstract The two models in the three-dimensional theory of stability of the nanotube reinforced composite materials are discussed. The model of "infinite fibers" and the model of "short fibers" are considered. The primary objective is attended to "short fibers" model. All results are obtained in the framework of the three-dimensional linearized theory of stability of deformable bodies. More >
