    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.51, No.3, pp. 191-212, 2009, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2009.051.191
    Abstract An efficient Petrov-Galerkin Chebyshev spectral method coupled with the Taylor-series expansion method of moments (TEMOM) was developed to simulate the effect of coherent structures on particle coagulation in the exhaust pipe. The Petrov-Galerkin Chebyshev spectral method was presented in detail focusing on the analyticity of solenoidal vector field used for the approximation of the flow. It satisfies the pole condition exactly at the origin, and can be used to expand the vector functions efficiently by using the solenoidal condition. This developed TEMOM method has no prior requirement for the particle size distribution (PSD). It is much simpler than the method… More >

    A Cartesian-Grid Discretisation Scheme Based on Local Integrated RBFNs for Two-Dimensional Elliptic Problems

    N. Mai-Duy1, T. Tran-Cong1
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.51, No.3, pp. 213-238, 2009, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2009.051.213
    Abstract This paper reports a new numerical scheme based on Cartesian grids and local integrated radial-basis-function networks (IRBFNs) for the solution of second-order elliptic differential problems defined on two-dimensional regular and irregular domains. At each grid point, only neighbouring nodes are activated to construct the IRBFN approximations. Local IRBFNs are introduced into two different schemes for discretisation of partial differential equations, namely point collocation and control-volume (CV)/subregion-collocation. Linear (e.g. heat flow) and nonlinear (e.g. lid-driven triangular-cavity fluid flow) problems are considered. Numerical results indicate that the local IRBFN CV scheme outperforms the local IRBFN point-collocation scheme regarding accuracy. Moreover, the former… More >

    A Unified Computational Approach to Instability of Periodic Laminated Materials

    M.V. Menshykova1, I.A. Guz, O.V. Menshykov
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.51, No.3, pp. 239-260, 2009, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2009.051.239
    Abstract The present work is devoted to the investigation of the internal instability in laminated materials. The paper is concerned with the development of a unified computational procedure for numerical realisation of the method as applied to various constitutive equations of the layers, different loading schemes (uniaxial or biaxial loading) and different precritical conditions (large or small precritical deformations). It contains many examples of critical stresses/strains calculations for particular composites as well as analysis of different buckling modes. More >

    A Fictitious Time Integration Method for Backward Advection-Dispersion Equation

    Chih-Wen Chang1, Chein-Shan Liu2
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.51, No.3, pp. 261-276, 2009, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2009.051.261
    Abstract The backward advection-dispersion equation (ADE) for identifying the groundwater pollution source identification problems (GPSIPs) is numerically solved by employing a fictitious time integration method (FTIM). The backward ADE is renowned as ill-posed because the solution does not continuously count on the data. We transform the original parabolic equation into another parabolic type evolution equation by introducing a fictitious time coordinate, and adding a viscous damping coefficient to enhance the stability of numerical integration of the discretized equations by employing a group preserving scheme. When several numerical examples are amenable, we find that the FTIM is applicable to retrieve all past… More >
