    Probabilistic Dynamic Analysis of Vehicle-Bridge Interaction System with Uncertain Parameters

    N. Liu,1,W. Gao 1, C.M. Song1, N. Zhang2
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.72, No.2, pp. 79-102, 2011, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2011.072.079
    Abstract This paper presents the probabilistic dynamic analysis of vehicle-bridge interaction systems. The bridge's and vehicle's parameters are considered as random variables as well as the road surface roughness is modeled as random process. A two-degree-of-freedom spring-mass system is used to represent a moving vehicle and the bridge is modeled as an Euler-Bernoulli beam. From the equation of motion for the vehicle-bridge coupling system, the expressions for mean value and standard deviation of bridge response are developed by using the random variable's functional moment method. The effects of the individual system parameters and the road surface roughness on the bridge response… More >

    The Coupling Method with the NaturalBoundary Reduction on an Ellipse for Exterior Anisotropic Problems

    Quan Zheng2, Jing Wang2, Jing-ya Li2
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.72, No.2, pp. 103-114, 2011, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2011.072.103
    Abstract This paper investigates the coupling method of the finite element and the natural boundary element using an elliptic artificial boundary for solving exterior anisotropic problems, and obtains a new error estimate that depends on the mesh size, the location of the elliptic artificial boundary, the number of terms after truncating from the infinite series in the integral. Numerical examples are presented to demonstrate the effectiveness and the properties of this method. More >

    A Fast Multipole Dual Boundary Element Method for the Three-dimensional Crack Problems

    H. T. Wang1,2, Z. H. Yao3
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.72, No.2, pp. 115-148, 2011, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2011.072.115
    Abstract A fast boundary element solver for the analysis of three-dimensional general crack problems is presented. In order to effectively model the embedded or edge cracked structures a dual boundary integral equation (BIE) formulation is used. By implementing the fast multipole method (FMM) to the discretized BIE, structures containing a large number of three-dimensional cracks can be readily simulated on one personal computer. In the FMM framework, a multipole expansion formulation is derived for the hyper-singular integral in order that the multipole moments of the dual BIEs containing the weakly-, strongly- and hyper-singular kernels are collected and translated with a unified… More >

    Numerical Modeling of Resin Film Infusion Process with Compaction and Its Application

    Duning Li1, Yufeng Nie1,2, Xuemei Zhou1, Li Cai1
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.72, No.2, pp. 149-166, 2011, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2011.072.149
    Abstract In this study, the efficient discrete model including the resin infusion and the fiber compaction is developed to simulate the RFI (resin film infusion) process. The non-linear governing equations are derived by the Darcy's law, the Terzaghi's law and the continuity equations. The finite element method and the finite difference method are used to discretize the proposed equations, and the VOF method is used to track the filling front. Compared with the analytical results of Park, our numerical results agree well with them. Furthermore, we analyze the RFI process of BMI/G0814, and simulate the resin pressure, the fiber volume fraction… More >
