    Interfacial Stresses Induced by a Point Heat Source in an Isotropic Plate with a Reinforced Elliptical Hole

    Ching Kong Chao1,2, Chin Kun Chen1, Fu Mo Chen3
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.63, No.1, pp. 1-28, 2010, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2010.063.001
    Abstract A general analytical solution for a reinforced elliptical hole embedded in an infinite matrix subjected to a point heat source is provided in this paper. Based on the technique of conformal mapping and the method of analytical continuation in conjunction with the alternating technique, the general expressions of the temperature and stresses in the reinforcement layer and the matrix are derived explicitly in a series form. Some numerical results are provided to investigate the effects of the material combinations and geometric configurations on the interfacial stresses. The solution obtained can be treated as Green's functions which enable us to formulate… More >

    Finite Element Nonlinear Analysis for Catenary Structure Considering Elastic Deformation

    B.W. Kim1, H.G. Sung1, S.Y. Hong1, H.J. Jung2
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.63, No.1, pp. 29-46, 2010, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2010.063.029
    Abstract This paper numerically investigates the behavior of sag and tension of inclined catenary structure considering elastic deformation. Equilibrium equation for computing elastic catenary is formulated by employing finite element method (FEM). Minimum potential energy principle and the Lagrange multiplier method are used in the formulation to derive equilibrium equation with constraint condition for catenary length. Since stiffness and loading forces of catenary are dependent on its own geometry, the equilibrium equation is nonlinear. Using the iterative scheme such as fixed point iteration or bisection, equilibrium position and tension are found. Based on the formulation, a Fortran solver is developed in… More >

    An Improved Unsplit and Convolutional Perfectly Matched Layer Absorbing Technique for the Navier-Stokes Equations Using Cut-Off Frequency Shift

    Roland Martin1, Carlos Couder-Castaneda1
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.63, No.1, pp. 47-78, 2010, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2010.063.047
    Abstract We develop an unsplit convolutional perfectly matched layer (CPML) technique to absorb efficiently compressible viscous flows and their related supersonic or subsonic regimes at the outer boundary of a distorted computational domain. More particularly subsonic outgoing flows or subsonic wall-boundary layers close to the PML are well absorbed, which is difficult to obtain without creating numerical instabilities over long time periods. This new PML (CPML) introduces the calculation of auxiliary memory variables at each time step and allows an unsplit formulation of the PML. Damping functions involving a high shift in the frequency domain allow a much better absorption of… More >

    Accurate True Direction Solutions to the Euler Equations Using a Uniform Distribution Equilibrium Method

    Alex Ferguson1, Matthew R. Smith2, J.-S. Wu3
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.63, No.1, pp. 79-100, 2010, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2010.063.079
    Abstract A novel approach for the use of multiple continuous uniform distributions for reconstruction of the Maxwell-Boltzmann equilibrium probability distribution function is used for the solution of one and two dimensional Euler equations. The Uniform distribution Equilibrium Flux Method (UEFM) is a kinetic-theory based flux solver which calculates true directional, volume to volume fluxes based on integration (over velocity space and physical space) of a sum of uniform probability distribution functions working to approximate the equilibrium distribution function. The resulting flux expressions contain only the Heaviside unit step function and do not require the evaluation of the Exponential or Error Functions.… More >
