    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.89, No.3, pp. 163-188, 2012, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2012.089.163
    Abstract This paper suggests a new set of analytical solutions for predicting leakage-induced seepage field and ground settlement in saturated clay. A unique feature of the solutions presented is considering the effect of the tunnel lining through the relative permeability between the tunnel and the soil. Through the superposition method, the proposed method can be easily extended to twin parallel tunnels. The accuracy of the analytical solutions are verified with numerical simulations. Parametric studies reveal that the decrease of pore pressure and the consequent settlements of ground and tunnel is proportional to the relative permeability. Over 20% of the initial hydrostatic… More >

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.89, No.3, pp. 189-220, 2012, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2012.089.189
    Abstract In this paper, the alternating direction implicit (ADI) method reported in [You(2006)] for the convection-diffusion equation is implemented in the context of compact integrated radial basis function (CIRBF) approximations. The CIRBF approximations are constructed over 3-point stencils, where extra information is incorporated via two forms: only nodal second-order derivative values (Scheme 1), and both nodal first- and second-order derivative values (Scheme 2). The resultant algebraic systems are sparse, especially for Scheme 2 (tridiagonal matrices). Several steady and non-steady problems are considered to verify the present schemes and to compare their accuracy with some other ADI schemes. Numerical results show that… More >

    Using the Discontinuous Deformation Analysis to Model Wave Propagations in Jointed Rock Masses

    Y.J. Ning1,2,3, Z.Y. Zhao3, J.P. Sun3, W.F. Yuan1,2
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.89, No.3, pp. 221-262, 2012, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2012.089.221
    Abstract In this paper, wave propagations in jointed rock masses are modeled by the discontinuous deformation analysis (DDA) method. The selection of the numerical control parameters in the DDA for wave propagation modeling is discussed in detail, and the effects of the joint stiffness, the seismic loading frequency, the joint strength, and the incident angle on the propagations of stress waves in a jointed rock mass are modeled and analyzed. Two nonreflecting boundary conditions including the viscous boundary condition (VBC) and the superposition boundary condition (SBC) are coupled into the DDA. The applicability of the two nonreflecting boundary conditions for simple… More >
