    A. Gakwaya1, H. Sharifi2, M. Guillot1, M. Souli3, F. Erchiqui4
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.73, No.3, pp. 209-266, 2011, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2011.073.209
    Abstract A mechanical computer aided design and engineering system can be used to reduce the design-to-manufacture cycle time in metal forming process. Such a system could be built upon a solid modeling geometry engine and an efficient finite element (FE) solver. The maintenance of a high-quality mesh throughout the analysis is an essential feature of an efficient finite element simulation of large strain metal forming problems. In this paper, a mesh adaptation technique employing the Arbitrary Lagrangian-Eulerian formulation (ALE) is applied to some industrial metal forming problems. An ACIS boundary representation of the solid model is employed. This type of representation… More >

    Multiple Damage Detection Method for Beams Based on Multi-Scale Elements Using Hermite Cubic Spline Wavelet

    Jiawei Xiang1,2, Ming Liang1,3
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.73, No.3, pp. 267-298, 2011, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2011.073.267
    Abstract The importance of damage detection in structures has been widely recognized in mechanical and civil engineering. A new method is proposed to detect multiple damages based on frequency measurement. According to linear fracture mechanics theory, the damages are modeled by rotational springs. The first problem of interest is concerned with the construction of multi-scaling wavelet finite element model using Hermite cubic spline wavelet on the interval (HCSWI) in the forward problem analysis to obtain damages detection database. The second problem is the inverse problem analysis to determine the number of damages, their locations and depths based on the minimum Root-mean-square… More >

    Enhancement Transport Phenomena in the Navier-Stokes Shell-like Slip Layer

    J. Badur1, M. Karcz1, M. Lemanski1, L. Nastalek1
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.73, No.3, pp. 299-310, 2011, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2011.073.299
    Abstract In the paper we propose to remove the classical Navier slip condition and replace it with new generalized Navier-Stokes slip boundary conditions. These conditions are postulated to be ones following from the mass and momentum balance within a thin, shell-like moving boundary layer. Owing to this, the problem consistency between the internal and external friction in a viscous fluid is solved within the framework of a proper form of the layer balances, and a proper form of constitutive relations for appropriate friction forces. Finally, the common features of the Navier, Stokes, Maxwell and Reynolds concepts of a boundary slip layer… More >

    The Coupling FEM and Natural BEM for a Certain Nonlinear Interface Problem with Non-Matching Grids

    Ju’e Yang1, Dehao Yu2
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.73, No.3, pp. 311-330, 2011, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2011.073.311
    Abstract In this paper, we introduce a domain decomposition method with non-matching grids for a certain nonlinear interface problem in unbounded domains. To solve this problem, we discuss a new coupling of finite element method(FE) and natural boundary element(NBE). We first derive the optimal energy error estimate of finite element approximation to the coupled FEM-NBEM problem. Then we use a dual basis multipier on the interface to provide the numerical analysis with non-matching grids.Finally, we give some numerical examples further to confirm our theoretical results.
