    Abstract A transient heat conduction analysis of the functionally graded material (FGM) plates has been investigated based on the hybrid numerical method (HNM). HNM combines the layer element method with the method of Fourier transforms and proves to be efficient and reliable. The FGM plates are infinite large and the material properties vary continuously through thickness. The transient heat source acted on the FGM plates. The temperature distribution of the FGM plates is obtained in different time and different position. Some useful results for transient heat conduction are shown in figures. Applications of HNM to transient heat conduction are firstly presented… More >

    Enhanced Understanding of Particle Simulations Through Deformation-Based Visualization

    A.N.M. Imroz Choudhury1, Michael D. Steffen1, James E. Guilkey2, Steven G.Parker3
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.63, No.2, pp. 117-136, 2010, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2010.063.117
    Abstract We present a physically based method for visualizing deformation in particle simulations, such as those describing structural mechanics simulations. The method uses the deformation gradient tensor to transform carefully chosen glyphs representing each particle. The visualization approximates how simulated objects responding to applied forces might look in reality, allowing for a better understanding of material deformation, an important indicator of, for example, material failure. It can also help highlight possible errors and numerical deficiencies in the simulation itself, suggesting how simulations might be changed to yield more accurate results. More >

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.63, No.2, pp. 137-162, 2010, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2010.063.137
    Abstract Vibration of a single graphene and a pair of graphenes at micro meter scale induced by air flow is numerically simulated and examined by using a hybrid computational method starting from a microscopic level of description for the graphene. In order to bridge a huge gap in spatial and time scales in their motions, the carbon atoms of the graphene are represented by a small number of coarse grained particles, the fluid motion is described by the lattice Boltzmann equation and the momentum exchange at the boundary is treated by the time averaged immersed boundary method. It is found that… More >

    Coupled Crack /Contact Analysis for Composite Material Containing Periodic Cracks under Periodic Rigid Punches Action

    Yue-Ting Zhou1, Xing Li2, De-Hao Yu3, Kang Yong Lee1,4
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.63, No.2, pp. 163-190, 2010, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2010.063.163
    Abstract In this paper, a coupled crack/contact model is established for the composite material with arbitrary periodic cracks indented by periodic punches. The contact of crack faces is considered. Frictional forces are modeled to arise between the punch foundation and the composite material boundary. Kolosov-Muskhelisvili complex potentials with Hilbert kernels are constructed, which satisfy the continuity conditions of stress and displacement along the interface identically. The considered problem is reduced to a system of singular integral equations of first and second kind with Hilbert kernels. Bounded functions are defined so that singular integral equations of Hilbert type can be transformed to… More >
