    A Smooth Finite Element Method Based on Reproducing Kernel DMS-Splines

    Sunilkumar N1, D Roy1,2
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.65, No.2, pp. 107-154, 2010, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2010.065.107
    Abstract The element-based piecewise smooth functional approximation in the conventional finite element method (FEM) results in discontinuous first and higher order derivatives across element boundaries. Despite the significant advantages of the FEM in modelling complicated geometries, a motivation in developing mesh-free methods has been the ease with which higher order globally smooth shape functions can be derived via the reproduction of polynomials. There is thus a case for combining these advantages in a so-called hybrid scheme or a 'smooth FEM' that, whilst retaining the popular mesh-based discretization, obtains shape functions with uniform Cp(p ≥ 1) continuity. One such recent attempt, a… More >

    Estimation of Heat-Transfer Characteristics from Fins Mounted on a Horizontal Plate in Natural Convection

    Han-Taw Chen1, Li-Shie Liu1, Shin-Ku Lee1
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.65, No.2, pp. 155-178, 2010, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2010.065.155
    Abstract The finite difference method in conjunction with the least-squares scheme and experimental measured temperatures is proposed to solve a two-dimensional steady-state inverse heat conduction problem in order to predict the natural-convection heat transfer coefficient under the isothermal situation hiso from a three fin array mounted on a horizontal plate and fin efficiency ηf for various values of the fin spacing and fin height. The measured fin temperatures and ambient temperature are obtained from the present experimental apparatus conducted in a small wind tunnel. The heat transfer coefficient on a fin is non-uniform for the present problem, and its functional… More >

    Solvability of an Inverse Problem for the Kinetic Equation and a Symbolic Algorithm

    Arif Amirov1, Fikret Gölgeleyen1
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.65, No.2, pp. 179-192, 2010, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2010.065.179
    Abstract In this work, we derive the solvability conditions for an inverse problem for the kinetic equation and develop a new symbolic algorithm to obtain the approximate solution of the problem. The computational experiments show that proposed method provides highly accurate numerical solutions even subjecting to a large noise in the given data. More >

    Investigation on an Accelerated Scheme for Solving Time-Dependent Systems

    Montri Maleewong1, Sirod Sirisup2
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.65, No.2, pp. 193-216, 2010, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2010.065.193
    Abstract In this paper, we describe our investigation of an "on-line" POD-assisted projective integration method for solving a nonlinear PDE. Using the on-line method, we have computed the representative POD modes without assuming knowledge of the underlying slow manifold along the integration process. This approach is based on the "equation-free" framework where the governing PDE does not need to be projected onto the POD bases in order to build a reduced-order model. The main objectives of this study were to investigate the effectiveness of the method in reducing the computational time required for numerically solving a nonlinear PDE. Here, the one-dimensional… More >
