    A Localized RBF Meshfree Method for the Numerical Solution of the Kdv-Burger's Equation

    G. C. Bourantas1, V. C. Loukopoulos2
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.86, No.4, pp. 275-300, 2012, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2012.086.275
    Abstract This paper formulates a local Radial Basis Functions (LRBFs) collocation method for the numerical solution of the non-linear dispersive and dissipative KdV-Burger's (KdVB) equation. This equation models physical problems, such as irrotational incompressible flow, considering a shallow layer of an inviscid fluid moving under the influence of gravity and the motion of solitary waves. The local type of approximations used, leads to sparse algebraic systems that can be solved efficiently. The Inverse Multiquadrics (IMQ), Gaussian (GA) and Multiquadrics (MQ) Radial Basis Functions (RBF) interpolation are employed for the construction of the shape functions. Accuracy of the method is assessed in… More >

    An Inverse Problem for Two Spectra of Complex Finite Jacobi Matrices

    Gusein Sh. Guseinov1
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.86, No.4, pp. 301-320, 2012, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2012.086.301
    Abstract This paper deals with the inverse spectral problem for two spectra of finite order complex Jacobi matrices (tri-diagonal symmetric matrices with complex entries). The problem is to reconstruct the matrix using two sets of eigenvalues, one for the original Jacobi matrix and one for the matrix obtained by replacing the first diagonal element of the Jacobi matrix by some another number. The uniqueness and existence results for solution of the inverse problem are established and an explicit algorithm of reconstruction of the matrix from the two spectra is given. More >

    A Novel Vibration-based Structure Health Monitoring Approach for the Shallow Buried Tunnel

    Biao Zhou1,2,3, Xiong yao Xie1,2, Yeong Bin Yang4, Jing Cai Jiang3
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.86, No.4, pp. 321-348, 2012, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2012.086.321
    Abstract The vibration-based SHM (Structure Health Monitoring) system has been successfully used in bridge and other surface civil infrastructure. However, its application in operation tunnels remains a big challenge. The reasons are discussed in this paper by comparing the vibration characteristics of the free tunnel structure and tunnel-soil coupled system. It is revealed that all the correlation characteristics of the free tunnel FRFs (Frequency Response Function spectrum) will vanish and be replaced by a coupled resonance frequency when the tunnel is surrounded by soil. The above statement is validated by field measurements. Moreover, the origin of this phenomenon is investigated by… More >

    Simulation of the Deformation Mechanisms of Bulk Metallic Glass (BMG) Foam using the Material Point Method

    Jin Ma1, Jay C. Hanan1, Ranga Komanduri1, Hongbing Lu2
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.86, No.4, pp. 349-384, 2012, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2012.086.349
    Abstract Amorphous metallic foams are an exciting class of materials for an array of high impact absorption applications, the mechanical behavior of which is only beginning to be characterized. To determine mechanical properties, guide processing, and engineer the microstructure for impact absorption, simulation of the mechanical properties is necessary as experimental determination alone can be expensive and time consuming. In this investigation, the material point method (MPM) with C1 continuous shape function is used to simulate the response of a bulk metallic glass (BMG) closed-cell foam (Pd42.5Cu30Ni7.5P20) under compression. The BMG foam was also tested experimentally under compression for validation of… More >
