    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.70, No.2, pp. 93-122, 2010, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2010.070.093
    Abstract This paper studies the influence of the imperfectness of the interface conditions on the dispersion of the axisymmetric longitudinal waves in the pre-strained compound cylinder. The investigations are made within the framework of the piecewise homogeneous body model by utilizing the 3D linearized theory of elastic waves in elastic bodies with initial stresses. It is assumed that the layers of the compound cylinder are made from high elastic compressible materials and their elasticity relations are given through the harmonic potential. The shear spring type imperfectness of the interface conditions is considered and the degree of this imperfectness is estimated by… More >

    The Hybrid Boundary Node Method Accelerated by Fast Multipole Expansion Technique for 3D Elasticity

    Qiao Wang1, Yu Miao1,2, Junjie Zheng1
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.70, No.2, pp. 123-152, 2010, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2010.070.123
    Abstract In this paper, a fast formulation of the hybrid boundary node method (Hybrid BNM) for solving 3D elasticity is presented. Coupling modified variational principle with the Moving Least Squares (MLS) approximation, the Hybrid BNM only requires discrete nodes constructed on the surface of a domain. The preconditioned GMERS is employed to solve the resulting system of equations. At each iteration step of the GMERS, the matrix-vector multiplication is accelerated by the fast multipole method (FMM). The fundamental solution of three-dimensional elasticity problem is expanded in terms of series. An oct-tree data structure is adopted to subdivide the computational domain into… More >

    Development of Intrinsic Formulation of W.-Z. Chien of the Geometrically Nonlinear Theory of Thin Elastic Shells

    W. Pietraszkiewicz1
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.70, No.2, pp. 153-190, 2010, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2010.070.153
    Abstract Chien Wei-Zhang (1944) derived three equilibrium equations and three compatibility conditions of the nonlinear theory of thin, isotropic elastic shells entirely in terms of the surface stress and strain measures associated with the shell base surface. This allowed Him to divide the complex boundary value problem (BVP) of nonlinear shell analysis into two disjoint and supposedly simpler steps: I) finding the surface stress and strain measures from the intrinsic BVP, and II) establishing position in space of the deformed base surface from already known surface strain measures. In the present paper some achievements of this formulation obtained during the last… More >

    An Explicit Numerical Modeling of Soft Body Impact Damage in Metallic Airplane Structures

    I. Smojver1, D. Ivancevic1, D. Mihaljevic2
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.70, No.2, pp. 191-216, 2010, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2010.070.191
    Abstract This paper tackles the problem of numerical prediction of bird strike induced damage in real aeronautical structures using highly detailed finite element models and modern numerical approaches. Due to the complexity of today's aeronautical structures, numerical damage prediction methods have to be able to take into account various failure and degradation models of different materials. The work presented in this paper is focused on damage modeling in metallic items of aeronautical structures.
    Abaqus/Explicit has been employed to perform geometrical and material nonlinear transient dynamic analyses. The problem of soft body impacts has been tackled by applying a hybrid Eulerian Lagrangian… More >
