    Abstract Evaluation of electric field due to indirect lightning strike is an interesting subject. Calculation of electric and magnetic fields in time domain with the consideration of ground conductivity effect in the shortest possible time is an important objective. In this paper, using dipole method, Maxwell's equation and Cooray-Rubinstein formula, a new method for calculation of electric field in time domain is proposed. In addition, this proposed algorithm can also be used to evaluate the effect at the far distance cases of observation point from lightning channel. More >

    Mean Densities in Dynamic MathematicalTwo-phase Flow Models

    J. Bonilla1, L.J. Yebra1, S. Dormido2
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.67, No.1, pp. 13-38, 2010, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2010.067.013
    Abstract This paper presents and discusses a mean densities method applied to a steam-water two-phase flow mathematical model which uses a finite volume method and a staggered grid for discretizing a rigid volume in control volumes, where the thermodynamic properties are calculated. This method is based on the concepts of uniform pressure among all the control volumes and mean density in each control volume, allowing smooth thermodynamic properties, hence avoiding discontinuity at phase boundaries. This method wipes out the chattering problem due to the continuous and differentiable modelling of density and its partial derivatives, which leads to faster simulations and increases… More >

    Viscous Linear Instability of an Incompressible Round Jet with Petrov-Galerkin Spectral Method and Truncated Boundary

    Xie Ming-Liang1,2, Chan Tat-Leung2, Yao Fu-Yuan3
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.67, No.1, pp. 39-54, 2010, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2010.067.039
    Abstract A Fourier-Chebyshev Petrov-Galerkin spectral method is described for computation of temporal linear stability in a circular jet. The outer boundary of unbounded domains is truncated by large enough diameter. The mathematical formulation is presented in detail focusing on the analyticity of solenoidal vector field used for the approximation of the flow. The scheme provides spectral accuracy in the present cases studied and the numerical results are in agreement with former works. More >

    A Novel Meshless Method for Solving the Second Kind of Fredholm Integral Equations

    Hua Zou1, Hua Li1,2
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.67, No.1, pp. 55-78, 2010, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2010.067.055
    Abstract A novel meshless technique termed the Random Integral Quadrature (RIQ) method is developed in this paper for solving the generalized integral equations. By the RIQ method, the governing equations in the integral form are discretized directly with the field nodes distributed randomly or uniformly, which is achieved by discretizing the integral governing equations with the generalized integral quadrature (GIQ) technique over a set of background virtual nodes, and then interpolating the function values at the virtual nodes over a set of field nodes with Local Kriging method, where the field nodes are distributed either randomly or uniformly. The RIQ method… More >
