    2D Mixed Convection Viscous Incompressible Flows with Velocity-Vorticity Variables

    Alfredo Nicolás1, Blanca Bermúdez2
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.82, No.3&4, pp. 163-178, 2011, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2011.082.163
    Abstract Mixed convection viscous incompressible fluid flows, under a gravitational system, in rectangular cavities are reported using the unsteady Boussinessq approximation in velocity-vorticity variables. The results are obtained using a numerical method based on a fixed point iterative process to solve the nonlinear elliptic system that results after time discretization; the iterative process leads to the solution of uncoupled, well-conditioned, symmetric linear elliptic problems for which efficient solvers exist regardless of the space discretization. Results with different aspect ratios A up to Grashof numbers Gr = 100000 and Reynolds numbers Re = 1000 for the lid driven cavity problem are reported.… More >

    A New Homotopy Perturbation Method for Solving an Ill-Posed Problem of Multi-Source Dynamic Loads Reconstruction

    Linjun Wang1, Xu Han2, Youxiang Xie3
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.82, No.3&4, pp. 179-194, 2011, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2011.082.179
    Abstract In this paper, a new homotopy perturbation method (IHPM) is presented and suggested to solve an ill-posed problem of multi-source dynamic loads reconstruction. We propose a stable and reliable modification, and obtain a new regularization method, then employ it to find the exact solution for the multi-source dynamic load identification problem. Also, this present method only needs easy computations rather than successive integrations. Finally, the performances of two numerical examples are given. Comparisons are performed between the original homotopy perturbation method (HPM) and IHPM. The results verify that the present method is very simple and effective. More >

    Numerical Study of Dynamic Compression Process of Aluminum Foam with Material Point Method

    Weiwei Gong1, Xiong Zhang1,2, Xinming Qiu1
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.82, No.3&4, pp. 195-214, 2011, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2011.082.195
    Abstract Due to its high strength, low weight and strong anti impact capability, aluminum foam has great potential in the fields of transportation, aerospace and building structures as energy absorbing materials. Due to its complicated microstructures, it is desirable to develop an efficient numerical method to study the dynamic response of the aluminum foam under impact loading. In this paper, the material point method (MPM) is extended to the numerical simulation of the dynamic response of the aluminum foam under impact loading by incorporating the Deshpande Fleck's model and a volumetric strain failure model into our three-dimensional explicit material point method… More >

    Numerical Simulation of Melt Filling and Gas Penetration in Gas Assisted Injection Molding

    Qiang Li1, Jie Ouyang1, Guorong Wu1, Xiaoyang Xu1
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.82, No.3&4, pp. 215-232, 2011, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2011.082.215
    Abstract The governing equations of two-phase flows including gas and polymer melt are presented, which are solved using finite volume and domain extension methods with SIMPLEC technology. The melt filling and primary gas penetration in gas-assisted injection molding (GAIM) process are simulated, where the Cross-viscosity model is employed to describe the melt rheological behavior, and the CLSVOF(coupled Level Set and Volume of fluid) method is employed to capture the moving interfaces. In order to test and verify the coupled methods, melt filling in a rectangular plate with an insert is simulated, and the numerical results are in good agreement with those… More >

    The Superconvergence of Certain Two-Dimensional Hilbert Singular Integrals

    Jin Li1, De-hao Yu2 3
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.82, No.3&4, pp. 233-252, 2011, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2011.082.233
    Abstract The composite rectangle (midpoint) rule for the computation of multi-dimensional singular integrals is discussed and the superconvergence results is obtained. When the local coordinate is coincided with certain priori known coordinates, we get the convergence rate one order higher than the global one. At last, numerical examples are presented to illustrate our theoretical analysis which agree with it very well. More >

    Creation of Imperfections for Welding Simulations

    L. Novotný1, M. Tsunori2
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.82, No.3&4, pp. 253-264, 2011, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2011.082.253
    Abstract The welding simulation is carried out by an uncoupled thermal and mechanical analysis or by a coupled thermo-mechanical analysis. For weld-induced distortion and residual stress simulation, nonlinear mechanical analysis is required. Nonlinearities are caused by both nonlinear behaviour of the material and geometrical nonlinearity. Usually, the element birth technique is used to incorporate the filler material in the model. The ideal straight geometry may be altered by imperfections to enable buckling behaviour. Real component shapes contain various imperfections (e.g. geometrical, material). The finite element mesh may contain geometrical imperfections too. When a simple weld model is used, the mode of… More >
