    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.55, No.1, pp. 1-32, 2010, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2010.055.001
    Abstract Dispersion relations of axisymmetric longitudinal wave propagation in a finite pre-strained compound (bi-material) cylinder made from high elastic incompressible materials are investigated within the scope of a piecewise homogeneous body model utilizing three-dimensional linearized theory wave propagation in the initially stressed body. The materials of the inner and outer cylinders are assumed to be neo-Hookean. The numerical results regarding the influence of the initial strains in the inner and outer cylinders on the wave dispersion are presented and discussed. These results are obtained for the case where the material of the inner solid cylinder is stiffer than that of the… More >

    Numerical Characterization of Porous Solids and Performance Evaluation of Theoretical Models via the Precorrected-FFT Accelerated BEM

    Z. Y. Yan1,2, J. Zhang1, W. Ye1, T.X. Yu1
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.55, No.1, pp. 33-60, 2010, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2010.055.033
    Abstract An 3-D precorrected-FFT accelerated BEM approach for the linear elastic analysis of porous solids with randomly distributed pores of arbitrary shape and size is described in this paper. Both the upper bound and the lower bound of elastic properties of solids with spherical pores are obtained using the developed fast BEM code. Effects of porosity and pore shape on the elastic properties are investigated. The performance of several theoretical models is evaluated by comparing the theoretical predictions with the numerical results. It is found that for porous solids with spherical pores, the performances of the generalized self-consistent method and Mori-Tanaka… More >

    An Object-Oriented MPM Framework for Simulation of Large Deformation and Contact of Numerous Grains

    Z. T. Ma1, X. Zhang1,2, P. Huang1
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.55, No.1, pp. 61-88, 2010, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2010.055.061
    Abstract The Material Point Method (MPM) is more expensive in terms of storage than other methods, as MPM makes use of both mesh and particle data. Therefore, it is critical to develop an efficient MPM framework for engineering applications, such as impact and explosive simulations. This paper presents a new architecture for MPM computer code, developed using object-oriented design, which enables MPM analysis of a mass of grains, large deformation, high strain rates and complex material behavior. It is flexible, extendible, and easily modified for a variety of MPM analysis procedures. An MPM scheme combining contact algorithm with USF, USL and… More >

    Node Placement Method by Bubble Simulation and Its Application

    Ying Liu1, Yufeng Nie2, Weiwei Zhang2, Lei Wang2
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.55, No.1, pp. 89-110, 2010, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2010.055.089
    Abstract In the light of the ideas and treatment technologies about molecular dynamics simulation and bubble meshing, a new approach of node placement for the meshless method called node placement method by bubble simulation (NPBS method), is proposed. Nodes are seen as the centers of the bubbles which can be moved by their interacting forces. Through dynamic simulation, bubbles are placed into a near-optimal configuration, and the centers of bubbles will form a good-quality node distribution in the domain. This process doesn't need updating the mesh connection constantly, i.e., is totally meshfree. Some example results show that the uniform point sets… More >
