    An Effective Thermal-mechanical Modeling Methodology for Large-scale Area Array Typed Packages

    H. C. Cheng1, C. Y. Yu2, W. H. Chen3
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.7, No.1, pp. 1-18, 2005, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2005.007.001
    Abstract In this study, a simple but effective solution methodology that integrates a modified global/local finite element (GLFE) modeling technique and a two-staged constitutive modeling strategy is presented for the thermal-mechanical modeling of solder joints in an area array typed electronic package for characterizing the associated solder joint fatigue life under the JEDEC temperature cycling specification. The effectiveness and applicability of the proposed technique are demonstrated through two case studies, each of which is associated with an area array typed test vehicle. The geometry profile of solder joints in the test vehicle is determined by the Surface Evolver [Brakke (1996)]. For… More >

    Optimized Bearing and Interlayer Friction in Multiwalled Carbon Nanotubes

    Wanlin Guo1,2, Huajian Gao2
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.7, No.1, pp. 19-34, 2005, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2005.007.019
    Abstract A systematic investigation is performed on energy dissipation related interaction force associated with interlayer motion of sliding, rotation and telescoping between any two possible neighboring carbon nanotubes. In particular, we analyze the interlayer corrugation energy and sliding, rotation and telescoping resistance force associated with the Lennard-Jones potential as well as a registry-dependent graphitic potential. It is found that the interlayer resistance associated with both of these potentials can vary with the morphology, length and diameter of the two tubes. Energy dissipation related fluctuation of the resistant force can be as low as 10-18N/atom between the most optimistic tube pairs, but… More >

    A new Singular/Hypersingular MLPG (LBIE) method for 2D elastostatics

    E. J. Sellountos1, V. Vavourakis2, D. Polyzos3
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.7, No.1, pp. 35-48, 2005, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2005.007.035
    Abstract A new meshless local Petrov-Galerkin (MLPG) type method based on local boundary integral equation (LBIE) considerations is proposed for the solution of elastostatic problems. It is called singular/hypersingular MLPG (LBIE) method since the representation of the displacement field at the internal points of the considered structure is accomplished with the aid of the displacement local boundary integral equation, while for the boundary nodes both the displacement and the corresponding traction local boundary integral equations are employed. Nodal points spread over the analyzed domain are considered and the moving least squares (MLS) interpolation scheme for the approximation of the interior and… More >

    A Tangent Stiffness MLPG Method for Atom/Continuum Multiscale Simulation

    Shengping Shen1, S. N. Atluri1
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.7, No.1, pp. 49-68, 2005, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2005.007.049
    Abstract The main objective of this paper is to develop a multiscale method for the static analysis of a nano-system, based on a combination of molecular mechanics and MLPG methods. The tangent-stiffness formulations are given for this multiscale method, as well as a pure molecular mechanics method. This method is also shown to naturally link the continuum local balance equation with molecular mechanics, directly, based on the stress or force. Numerical results show that this multiscale method quite accurate. The tangent-stiffness MLPG method is very effective and stable in multiscale simulations. This multiscale method dramatically reduces the computational cost, but it… More >

    Local Integral Equations and two Meshless Polynomial Interpolations with Application to Potential Problems in Non-homogeneous Media

    V. Sladek1, J. Sladek1, M. Tanaka2
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.7, No.1, pp. 69-84, 2005, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2005.007.069
    Abstract An efficient numerical method is proposed for 2-d potential problems in anisotropic media with continuously variable material coefficients. The method is based on the local integral equations (utilizing a fundamental solution) and meshfree approximation of field variable. A lot of numerical experiments are carried out in order to study the numerical stability, accuracy, convergence and efficiency of several approaches utilizing various interpolations. More >

    A New Fast Multipole Boundary Element Method for Large Scale Analysis of Mechanical Properties in 3D Particle-Reinforced Composites

    Haitao Wang1, Zhenhan Yao1
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.7, No.1, pp. 85-96, 2005, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2005.007.085
    Abstract This paper addresses a new boundary element method (BEM) for the numerical analysis of mechanical properties in 3D particle-reinforced composites. The BEM is accelerated by a new version fast multipole method (FMM) in order to perform large scale simulation of a representative volume element (RVE) containing up to several hundred randomly distributed elastic spherical particles on only one personal computer. The maximum number of degrees of freedom (DOF) reaches more than 300,000. Efficiency of the developed new version fast multipole BEM code is evaluated compared with other conventional solutions for BEM. The effects of micro-structural parameters, namely the particle size,… More >

    Investigation on the Normal Derivative Equation of Helmholtz Integral Equation in Acoustics

    Zai You Yan1,2, Fang Sen Cui2, Kin Chew Hung2
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.7, No.1, pp. 97-106, 2005, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2005.007.097
    Abstract Taking the normal derivative of solid angles on the surface into account, a modified Burton and Miller's formulation is derived. From which, a more reasonable expression of the hypersingular operator is obtained. To overcome the hypersingular integral, the regularization scheme developed recently is employed. Plane acoustic wave scattering from a rigid sphere is computed to show the correctness of the modified formulation with the regularization scheme. In the computation, eight-nodded isoparametric element is applied. More >

    Predicting Wave Run-Up using Full ALE Finite Element Approach considering Moving Boundary

    Shahin Zohouri1, Moharram D. Pirooz2, Asad Esmaeily3
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.7, No.1, pp. 107-118, 2005, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2005.007.107
    Abstract A numerical scheme is developed to predict the wave run-up of an unsteady, incompressible viscous flow with free surface by the author$^1$. The method involves a two dimensional finite element with moving boundaries. The governing equations were the Navier-Stokes equations for conservation of momentum and mass for Newtonian fluids, continuity equation, and full nonlinear kinematic free-surface equation. A mapping algorithm was developed to solve highly deformed free surface problems, common in wave propagation. This algorithm transforms the run up model from the physical domain to a computational domain. A new Arbitrary Lagrangian-Eulerian (ALE) finite element modeling technique was used to… More >
