    Dynamic Stress around Two Cylindrical Inclusions in Functionally Graded Materials under Non-Homogeneous Shear Waves

    Xue-Qian Fang1, Jin-Xi Liu1, Ming-Zhang Chen1, Li-Yong Fu1
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.66, No.2, pp. 101-116, 2010, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2010.066.101
    Abstract In the authors' previous work (Zhang et al., 2010), the dynamic stress resulting from two cavities in exponential functional graded materials subjected to non-homogeneous shear waves has been studied. In this paper, the wave function expansion method is further developed to the case of two cylindrical inclusions embedded in functional graded materials, and the incident angle is also considered. The multiple scattering and refraction of non-homogeneous shear waves around the two inclusions are described accurately. The dynamic stress concentration factors around the two inclusions are presented analytically and numerically. The multiple effects of geometrical and physical parameters on the dynamic… More >

    Geometric Formulation of Maxwell's Equations in the Frequency Domain for 3D Wave Propagation Problems in Unbounded Regions

    P. Bettini1, M. Midrio2, R. Specogna2
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.66, No.2, pp. 117-134, 2010, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2010.066.117
    Abstract In this paper we propose a geometric formulation to solve 3D electromagnetic wave problems in unbounded regions in the frequency domain. An absorbing boundary condition (ABC) is introduced to limit the size of the computational domain by means of anisotropic Perfectly Matched Layers (PML) absorbing media in the outer layers of an unstructured mesh. The numerical results of 3D benchmark problems are presented and the effect of the PML parameters and scaling functions on PML effectiveness are discussed. More >

    Shape Optimization in Time-Dependent Navier-Stokes Flows via Function Space Parametrization Technique1

    Zhiming Gao2, Yichen Ma3
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.66, No.2, pp. 135-164, 2010, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2010.066.135
    Abstract Shape optimization technique has an increasing role in fluid dynamics problems governed by distributed parameter systems. In this paper, we present the problem of shape optimization of two dimensional viscous flow governed by the time dependent Navier-Stokes equations. The minimization problem of the viscous dissipated energy was established in the fluid domain. We derive the structure of continuous shape gradient of the cost functional by using the differentiability of a saddle point formulation with a function space parametrization technique. Finally a gradient type algorithm with mesh adaptation and mesh movement strategies is successfully and efficiently applied. More >

    Representative Volume Element Size of Elastoplastic and Elastoviscoplastic Particle-Reinforced Composites with Random Microstructure

    J. Cugnoni1, M. Galli2
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.66, No.2, pp. 165-186, 2010, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2010.066.165
    Abstract With the progress of miniaturization, in many modern applications the characteristic dimensions of the physical volume occupied by particle-reinforced composites are getting comparable with the reinforcement size and many of those composite materials undergo plastic deformations. In both experimental and modelling contexts, it is therefore very important to know whether, and up to which characteristic size, the description of the composites in terms of effective, homogenized properties is sufficiently accurate to represent their response in the actual geometry. Herein, the case of particle-reinforced composites with elastoviscoplastic matrix materials and polyhedral randomly arranged linear elastic reinforcement is considered since it is… More >
