    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.57, No.1, pp. 1-30, 2010, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2010.057.001
    Abstract The paper investigates propagation of stationary plane longitudinal and transverse waves along the layers in adhesively bonded multilayered structures for MEMS applications in the presence of residual stresses. The multilayered structure is assumed to consist of the infinite amount of the periodically recurring layers made of two different materials possessing significantly dissimilar properties: conductive metal layer and insulating adhesive layer. It is assumed that the mechanical behaviour of both materials is nonlinear elastic and can be described with the help of the elastic Murnaghan potential depending on the three invariants of strain tensor. The problem is formulated in the framework… More >

    Green's Functions for Anisotropic/Piezoelectric Bimaterials and Their Applications to Boundary Element Analysis

    Y.C. Chen1, Chyanbin Hwu2
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.57, No.1, pp. 31-50, 2010, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2010.057.031
    Abstract The Green's function for anisotropic bimaterials has been investigated around three decades ago. Since the mathematical formulation of piezoelectric elasticity can be organized into the same form as that of anisotropic elasticity by just expanding the dimension of the corresponding matrix to include the piezoelectric effects, the extension of the Green's function to piezoelectric bimaterials can be obtained immediately through the associated anisotropic bimaterials. In this paper, the Green's function for the bimaterials bonded together with one anisotropic material and one piezoelectric material is derived by applying Stroh's complex variable formalism with the aid of analytical continuation method. For this… More >

    Three-Dimensional Carotid Plaque Progression Simulation Using Meshless Generalized Finite Difference Method Based on Multi-Year MRI Patient-Tracking Data

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.57, No.1, pp. 51-76, 2010, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2010.057.051
    Abstract Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is becoming the number one cause of death worldwide. Atherosclerotic plaque rupture and progression are closely related to most severe cardiovascular syndromes such as heart attack and stroke. Mechanisms governing plaque rupture and progression are not well understood. A computational procedure based on three-dimensional meshless generalized finite difference (MGFD) method and serial magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) data was introduced to quantify patient-specific carotid atherosclerotic plaque growth functions and simulate plaque progression. Participating patients were scanned three times (T1, T2, and T3, at intervals of about 18 months) to obtain plaque progression data. Vessel wall thickness (WT) changes… More >

    Two-phase flow in complex geometries: A diffuse domain approach

    S. Aland1, J. Lowengrub2, A. Voigt1
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.57, No.1, pp. 77-108, 2010, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2010.057.077
    Abstract We present a new method for simulating two-phase flows in complex geometries, taking into account contact lines separating immiscible incompressible components. We combine the diffuse domain method for solving PDEs in complex geometries with the diffuse-interface (phase-field) method for simulating multiphase flows. In this approach, the complex geometry is described implicitly by introducing a new phase-field variable, which is a smooth approximation of the characteristic function of the complex domain. The fluid and component concentration equations are reformulated and solved in larger regular domain with the boundary conditions being implicitly modeled using source terms. The method is straightforward to implement… More >
