    A Mixed Perfectly-Matched-Layer for Transient Wave Simulations in Axisymmetric Elastic Media

    S. Kucukcoban1, L.F. Kallivokas2
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.64, No.2, pp. 109-146, 2010, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2010.064.109
    Abstract We are concerned with elastic wave simulations arising in elastic, semi-infinite, heterogeneous, three-dimensional media with a vertical axis of symmetry through the coordinate origin. Specifically, we discuss the development of a new mixed displacement-stress formulation in PML-truncated axisymmetric media for forward elastic wave simulations. Typically, a perfectly-matched-layer (PML) is used to surround a truncated finite computational domain in order to attenuate outwardly propagating waves without reflections for all non-zero angles-of-incidence and frequencies. To date, standard formulations use split fields, where the displacement components are split into normal and parallel to the PML interface components. In this work, we favor unsplit… More >

    3D FEM Analyses of the Buckling Delamination of a Rectangular Sandwich Plate Containing Interface Rectangular Cracks and Made from Elastic and Viscoelastic Materials

    Surkay D. Akbarov1,2, Nazmiye Yahnioglu3, Ayfer Tekin4
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.64, No.2, pp. 147-186, 2010, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2010.064.147
    Abstract A three-dimensional buckling delamination problem for the sandwich rectangular plate made from elastic and viscoelastic material is studied. It is supposed that the plate contains interface rectangular cracks (Case 1) and interface rectangular edge-cracks (Case 2) and edge-surfaces of these cracks have initial infinitesimal imperfections. The evolution of these initial imperfections with an external compressive loading acting along the cracks (for a case where the materials of layers of the plate are elastic) or with duration of time (for a case where the materials of layers of the plate are viscoelastic) is investigated within the framework of the piecewise homogeneous… More >

    Numerical Solution of Non-Isothermal Fluid Flows Using Local Radial Basis Functions (LRBF) Interpolation and a Velocity-Correction Method

    G. C. Bourantas1, E. D. Skouras2,3, V. C. Loukopoulos4, G. C. Nikiforidis1
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.64, No.2, pp. 187-212, 2010, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2010.064.187
    Abstract Meshfree point collocation method (MPCM) is developed, solving the velocity-vorticity formulation of Navier-Stokes equations, for two-dimensional, steady state incompressible viscous flow problems in the presence of heat transfer. Particular emphasis is placed on the application of the velocity-correction method, ensuring the continuity equation. The Gaussian Radial Basis Functions (GRBF) interpolation is employed to construct the shape functions in conjunction with the framework of the point collocation method. The cases of forced, natural and mixed convection in a 2D rectangular enclosure are examined. The accuracy and the stability of the proposed scheme are demonstrated through three representative, well known and established… More >

    Size-Dependent Behavior of Macromolecular Solids I: Molecular Origin of the Size Effect

    W. Wei1, David C.C. Lam1
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.64, No.2, pp. 213-226, 2010, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2010.064.213
    Abstract Molecular rotation is the elastic deformation mechanism underpinning macroscopic deformation in macromolecular solid. In this investigation, molecular mechanic simulations are used to investigate the effect of size on the higher order material properties macromolecular solid. The rotational behavior of molecular coils embedded in beams was examined as a function of the beam size in tension, and in bending where the strain gradients in the bent direction are size-dependent. Analysis showed that the effective elastic modulus is size dependent when strain gradients are significant in bending, but not in tension. Analysis of the molecular rotation behavior indicated that the increase in… More >
