    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.61, No.2, pp. 111-132, 2010, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2010.061.111
    Abstract In the present work, a micromechanics-based fiber-bridging constitutive model that quantitatively takes into consideration the distribution of fiber orientation and the number of fibers, is derived and a fiber-bridging analysis program is developed. An image processing technique is applied to evaluate the fiber distribution characteristics of four different types of strain-hardening cementitious composites. Then, the fiber-bridging curves obtained from image analysis are compared with those obtained from the assumption of two- and three-dimensional fiber distributions. The calculated ultimate tensile strains are also compared with experimental results. Test results showed that the tensile behavior of strain-hardening cementitious composites can be more… More >

    Elastic Moduli of Woven Fabric Composite by Meshless Local Petrov-Galerkin (MLPG) Method

    P.H. Wen1, M.H. Aliabadi2
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.61, No.2, pp. 133-154, 2010, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2010.061.133
    Abstract A meshless local Petrov-Galerkin method, for the micro-mechanical material model of woven fabric composite material is presented in this paper. The material models are based on a repeated unit cell approach and two smooth fibre modes. A unit step function is used as the test functions in the local weak-form which leads to local boundary integral equations. The analysed domain is divided into small sub-domains and the radial basis function interpolation without element mesh is adopted. The woven fabric composite elastic moduli evaluated have been shown to be in good agreement with finite element results. More >

    An Efficient Trefftz-Based Method for Three-Dimensional Helmholtz Problems in Unbounded Domains

    Bart Bergen1, Bert Van Genechten1, Dirk Vandepitte1, Wim Desmet1
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.61, No.2, pp. 155-176, 2010, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2010.061.155
    Abstract The Wave Based Method (WBM) is a numerical prediction technique for Helmholtz problems. It is an indirect Trefftz method using wave functions, which satisfy the Helmholtz equation, for the description of the dynamic variables. In this way, it avoids both the large systems and the pollution errors that jeopardize accurate element-based predictions in the mid-frequency range. The enhanced computational efficiency of the WBM as compared to the element-based methods has been proven for the analysis of both three-dimensional bounded and two-dimensional unbounded problems. This paper presents an extension of the WBM to the application of three-dimensional acoustic scattering and radiation… More >

    Dynamic Analysis of Porous Media Considering Unequal Phase Discretization by Meshless Local Petrov-Galerkin Formulations

    Delfim Soares Jr.1
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.61, No.2, pp. 177-200, 2010, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2010.061.177
    Abstract In this work, meshless methods based on the local Petrov-Galerkin approach are employed for the time-domain dynamic analysis of porous media. For the spatial discretization of the pore-dynamic model, MLPG formulations adopting Gaussian weight functions as test functions are considered, as well as the moving least square method is used to approximate the incognita fields. For time discretization, the generalized Newmark method is adopted. The present work is based on the u-p formulation and the incognita fields of the coupled analysis in focus are the solid skeleton displacements and the interstitial fluid pore pressures. Independent spatial discretization is considered for… More >
