    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.64, No.3, pp. 227-250, 2010, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2010.064.227
    Abstract An engineering model for predicting the behavior of shape memory alloy (SMA) wire is presented in this study. Piecewise linear relations between stress and strain at a given temperature are assumed and the mixture rule of Reuss bounds is applied to get the elastic modulus of the SMAs in the mixed phase. Critical stresses and strains of the start and finish of the phase transformation are calculated at a given temperature by means of a linear constitutive equation and a stress-temperature diagram. Transformation conditions based on the critical stresses are translated in terms of critical strains. Martensite volume fraction and… More >

    A Numerical Study of the Influence of Surface Roughness on the Convective Heat Transfer in a Gas Flow

    F. Dierich1, P.A. Nikrityuk1
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.64, No.3, pp. 251-266, 2010, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2010.064.251
    Abstract This work presents a numerical investigation of the influence of the roughness of a cylindrical particle on the drag coefficient and the Nusselt number at low Reynolds numbers up to 40. The heated cylindrical particle is placed horizontally in a uniform flow. Immersed boundary method (IBM) with a continuous forcing on a fixed Cartesian grid is used. The governing equations are the Navier Stokes equation and the conservation of energy. A finite-volume based discretization and the SIMPLE algorithm with collocated-variables and Rie-Chow stabilization were used to solve the set of equations. Numerical simulations showed that the impact of the roughness… More >

    The MLPG for Bending of Electroelastic Plates

    J. Sladek1, V. Sladek1, P. Stanak1, E. Pan2
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.64, No.3, pp. 267-298, 2010, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2010.064.267
    Abstract The plate equations are obtained by means of an appropriate expansion of the mechanical displacement and electric potential in powers of the thickness coordinate in the variational equation of electroelasticity and integration through the thickness. The appropriate assumptions are made to derive the uncoupled equations for the extensional and flexural motion. The present approach reduces the original 3-D plate problem to a 2-D problem, with all the unknown quantities being localized in the mid-plane of the plate. A meshless local Petrov-Galerkin (MLPG) method is then applied to solve the problem. Nodal points are randomly spread in the mid-plane of the… More >

    An Iterative and Adaptive Lie-Group Method for Solving the Calderón Inverse Problem

    Chein-Shan Liu1, Satya N. Atluri2
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.64, No.3, pp. 299-326, 2010, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2010.064.299
    Abstract We solve the Calderón inverse conductivity problem [Calderón (1980, 2006)], for an elliptic type equation in a rectangular plane domain, to recover an unknown conductivity function inside the domain, from the over-specified Cauchy data on the bottom of the rectangle. The Calderón inverse problem exhibitsthree-fold simultaneous difficulties: ill-posedness of the inverse Cauchy problem, ill-posedness of the parameter identification, and no information inside the domain being available on the impedance function. In order to solve this problem, we discretize the whole domain into many sub-domains of finite strips, each with a small height. Thus the Calderón inverse problem is reduced to… More >
