    MLPG Application of Nanofluid Flow Mixed Convection Heat Transfer in a Wavy Wall Cavity

    A. Arefmanesh1, M. Najafi2, M. Nikfar3
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.69, No.2, pp. 91-118, 2010, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2010.069.091
    Abstract Procuring a numerical solution through an application of the meshless local Petrov-Galerkin method (MLPG) on the fluid flow and mixed convection in a complex geometry cavity filled with a nanofluid is the scope of the present study. The cavity considered is a square enclosure having a lower temperature sliding lid at the top, a differentially higher temperature wavy wall at the bottom, and two thermally insulated walls on the sides. The nanofluid medium used is a water-based nanofluid, Al2O3-water with various volume fractions of its solid. To carry out the numerical simulations, the developed governing equations are determined in terms… More >

    Explicit Solutions of Stresses for a Three-Phase Elliptic Inclusion Problem Subject to a Remote Uniform Load

    Ching Kong Chao1,2, Chin Kun Chen3, Fu Mo Chen4
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.69, No.2, pp. 119-142, 2010, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2010.069.119
    Abstract A general solution to a three-phase elliptic inclusion problem subjected to a remote uniform load is provided in this paper. Analysis of the present elasticity problem is rather tedious due to the presence of material inhomogeneities and complex geometric configurations. Based on the technique of conformal mapping and the method of analytical continuation in conjunction with the alternating technique, the general expressions of the displacement and stresses in each layer medium are derived explicitly in a series form. The effects of the material combinations and geometric configurations on the interfacial stresses are discussed in detail and shown in graphic form. More >

    An Alternated Grid Updating Parallel Algorithm for Material Point Method Using OpenMP

    Yantao Zhang1, Xiong Zhang1,2, Yan Liu1
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.69, No.2, pp. 143-166, 2010, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2010.069.143
    Abstract Material point method(MPM) is a promising method in solving problems involving large deformations, especially explosion and penetration. In MPM, particles can move around the computing domain dynamically, which can result in load imbalance easily. In parallelizing MPM using OpenMP, data races will occur in the stage of grid node updating if we use loop-level parallelism for these loops. Huang et al. proposed a domain decomposition method to overcome data races [Huang, Zhang, Ma and Wang (2008)]. However, significant modifications of the original serial code are required. In this paper, we proposed a new alternated grid updating method to avoid data… More >

    Internal Point Solutions for Displacements and Stresses in 3D Anisotropic Elastic Solids Using the Boundary Element Method

    Y.C. Shiah1, C. L. Tan2, R.F. Lee1
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.69, No.2, pp. 167-198, 2010, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2010.069.167
    Abstract In this paper, fully explicit, algebraic expressions are derived for the first and second derivatives of the Green's function for the displacements in a three dimensional anisotropic, linear elastic body. These quantities are required in the direct formulation of the boundary element method (BEM) for determining the stresses at internal points in the body. To the authors' knowledge, similar quantities have never previously been presented in the literature because of their mathematical complexity. Although the BEM is a boundary solution numerical technique, solutions for the displacements and stresses at internal points are sometimes required for some engineering applications. To this… More >
