    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.88, No.2, pp. 65-92, 2012, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2012.088.065
    Abstract We utilize a regularized integral equation scheme to resolve the three-dimensional backward advection-dispersion equation (BADE) for identifying the groundwater pollution source identification problems in this research. First, the Fourier series expansion method is employed to estimate the concentration field C(x, y, z, t) at any time t < T. Second, we contemplate a direct regularization by adding an extra term a(x, y, z, 0) to transform a second-kind Fredholm integral equation for C(x, y, z, 0). The termwise separable property of the kernel function permits us to acquire a closed-form regularized solution. In addition, a tactic to determine the regularization… More >

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.88, No.2, pp. 93-106, 2012, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2012.088.093
    Abstract Uncertainties in some parameters of problems of Leontief input-output analysis lead naturally to fuzzy linear systems. In this work, we consider input-output model, where the technology matrix is crisp and the vector of final outputs is fuzzy. The model is expressed by a fuzzy linear system with crisp matrix and with fuzzy right-hand side vector. We apply a geometric method for solving the system. The method finds the solution in the form of a fuzzy set of vectors. The solution set is shown to be a parallelepiped in coordinate space and is expressed by an explicit formula. The features of… More >

    The Design of Multi-Element Airfoils Through Multi-Objective Optimization Techniques

    G. Trapani1, T. Kipouros1, A. M. Savill1
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.88, No.2, pp. 107-140, 2012, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2012.088.107
    Abstract This paper presents the development and the application of a multi-objective optimization framework for the design of two-dimensional multi-element high-lift airfoils. An innovative and efficient optimization algorithm, namely Multi-Objective Tabu Search (MOTS), has been selected as core of the framework. The flow-field around the multi-element configuration is simulated using the commercial computational fluid dynamics (cfd) suite Ansys cfx. Elements shape and deployment settings have been considered as design variables in the optimization of the Garteur A310 airfoil, as presented here. A validation and verification process of the cfd simulation for the Garteur airfoil is performed using available wind tunnel data.… More >

    Boundary Knot Method: An Overview and Some Novel Approaches

    J.Y. Zhang1, F.Z. Wang2,3
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.88, No.2, pp. 141-154, 2012, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2012.088.141
    Abstract The boundary knot method (BKM) is a kind of boundary-type meshless method, only boundary points are needed in the solution process. Since the BKM is mathematically simple and easy to implement, it is superior in dealing with Helmholtz problems with high wavenumbers and high dimensional problems. In this paper, we give an overview of the traditional BKM with collocation approach and provide three novel approaches for the BKM, as far as they are relevant for the other boundary-type techniques. The promising research directions are expected from an improved BKM aspect. More >
