    A New Combined Scheme of Discrete Element Method and Meshless Method for Numerical Simulation of Continuum/Discontinuum Transformation

    Li Shan, Ning Cui, Ming Cheng, Kaixin Liu
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.83, No.4, pp. 353-384, 2012, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2012.083.353
    Abstract In the present paper, a combined scheme of discrete element method (DEM) and meshless method for numerical simulation of impact problems is proposed. Based on the basic principle of continuum mechanics, an axisymmetric DEM framework is established for modeling the elastoplastic behavior of solid materials. Failure criteria are introduced to model the transformation from a continuum to a discontinuum. The friction force between contact elements is also considered after the failure appears. So our scheme can calculate not only the behavior of continuum and discontinuum, but also the transformation process from a continuum to a discontinuum. In addition, a meshless… More >

    A Mesh Free Method for Simulations of Incompressible Fluid Flow

    M. Chatterjee, A.K. Mahendra, A.Sanyal, G. Gouthaman
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.83, No.4, pp. 385-402, 2012, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2012.083.385
    Abstract In this paper, we describe an Incompressible Navier-Stokes (INS) sol -ver using mesh less least square based discretisation on arbitrary distribution of points. The method uses modified Artificial Compressibility Method (ACM) with least square based discretisation. The Solver operates on an arbitrary distribution of points and uses a novel least squares based method that replaces the normal equations approach. This method generates the non-symmetric cross-product matrix by suitable selection of sub stencils such that the matrix is diagonally dominant and well conditioned. The INS solver has been validated with results available in literature for standard test cases. More >

    Thermal Expansion Characteristic of Prestressed Single Helical Structure

    Cao Guohua, Li Kai, Zhu Zhencai, Peng Weihong, Mao Xianbiao
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.83, No.4, pp. 403-424, 2012, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2012.083.403
    Abstract In order to master the geometric and mechanical behavior of helical structure under complicated condition such as the hoisting rope in mine shaft and the transmitting cable in electric power, the thermal expansion characteristic of single helical structure is systematically investigated under temperature effect in different layer. Linearly explicit expressions of axial strain and increment of helical angle for the helical unit of the ith layer are developed. Based on theory of curve by Love and theory of wire rope by Costello, the linearly explicit expressions of tension, torsion and bending moment of the helical unit are presented. After that,… More >

    Experimental and Numerical Studies on Heat Transfer and Fluid Flow in a Duct Fitted with Inclined Baffles

    W. A. El-Askary, A. Abdel-Fattah
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.83, No.4, pp. 425-458, 2012, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2012.083.425
    Abstract In the present paper, experimental and numerical studies of heat transfer and the frictional head loss of turbulent flow in a duct with a heated upper surface are performed. Four different arrangements are considered (case 1: without baffles, case 2: one perforated baffle on the upper wall and one solid baffle on the lower wall, case 3: one perforated baffle on the upper wall and one perforated baffle on the lower wall and case 4: two perforated baffles on the upper wall). A numerical code developed by the present authors is simultaneously presented including four different turbulence models; namely: the… More >
