    Abstract Three dimensional fracture mechanics was done by several groups in the past. One topic for these three dimensional fracture mechanics is to consider re-entrant corners or wedges for isotropic material. An algorithm was developed in the past to compute the dominant eigenvalues for those problems with high accuracy. Based on Kondratiev's Lemma for elliptic boundary value problems it is started with the asymptotic for the displacement and stress distribution around these three dimensional corners. By considering the mixed boundary value problem, the field quantities in the vicinity of corner points are computed by using a special finite element formulation, which… More >

    Reliability-Based Multiobjective Design Optimization under Interval Uncertainty

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.74, No.1, pp. 39-64, 2011, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2011.074.039
    Abstract This paper studies the reliability-based multiobjective optimization by using a new interval strategy to model uncertain parameters. A new satisfaction degree of interval, which is significantly extended from [0, 1] to [–∞, +∞], is introduced into the non-probabilistic reliability-based optimization. Based on a predefined satisfaction degree level, the uncertain constraints can be effectively transformed into deterministic ones. The interval number programming method is applied to change each uncertain objective function to a deterministic two-objective optimization. So in this way the uncertain multiobjective optimization problem is transformed into a deterministic optimization problem and a reliability-based multiobjective optimization is then established. For… More >

    An Interval Optimization Method Considering the Dependence between Uncertain Parameters

    C. Jiang1,2, Q.F. Zhang1, X. Han1, D. Li3, J. Liu1
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.74, No.1, pp. 65-82, 2011, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2011.074.065
    Abstract In this paper, an interval optimization method is developed to deal with a class of problems that there exists dependence between the interval parameters. An ellipsoidal convex model is used to model the uncertainty domain, in which the parameter dependence can be well reflected through the shape of a multi-dimensional ellipsoid. Based on an order relation and a reliability-based possibility degree of interval, the uncertain optimization can be transformed to a deterministic nesting optimization. An efficient algorithm is then constructed to solve the created nesting optimization, in which a sequence of approximate interval optimizations are created and the optimal design… More >
