    Model Predictive Control for High-speed Train with Automatic Trajectory Configuration and Tractive Force Optimization

    Yonghua Zhou1 , Xun Yang1 , Chao Mi1
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.90, No.6, pp. 415-437, 2013, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2013.090.415
    Abstract High-speed train transportation is organized in a way of globally centralized planning and locally autonomous adjustment with the real-time known positions, speeds and other state information of trains. The hierarchical integration architecture composed of top, middle and bottom levels is proposed based on model predictive control (MPC) for the real-time scheduling and control. The middle-level trajectory configuration and tractive force setpoints play a critical role in fulfilling the top-level scheduling commands and guaranteeing the controllability of bottomlevel train operations. In the middle-level MPC-based train operation planning, the continuous cellular automaton model of train movements is proposed to dynamically configure the… More >

    A Line Model-Based Fast Boundary Element Method for the Cathodic Protection Analysis of Pipelines in Layered Soils

    L.Q. Liu1, H.T. Wang1,2
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.90, No.6, pp. 439-462, 2013, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2013.090.439
    Abstract A line model-based fast boundary element method (BEM) is presented for the large-scale cathodic protection (CP) analysis of three-dimensional pipelines in layered soils. In this approach, pipelines are treated as lines with potentials assumed constant over the cross-section and the boundary integrals happen on the associated cylindrical surfaces. The advantage of this model is that pipelines can be meshed with line elements while the boundary integrals are based on the original shapes. Therefore, the number of unknowns is significantly reduced with accuracy effectively retained. A unified formulation of the multipole moments is developed for the mixed boundary element types in… More >

    Richardson Extrapolation Method for Singularly Perturbed Convection-Diffusion Problems on Adaptively Generated Mesh

    Pratibhamoy Das1, Srinivasan Natesan2
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.90, No.6, pp. 463-485, 2013, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2013.090.463
    Abstract Adaptive mesh generation has become a valuable tool for the improvements of accuracy and efficiency of numerical solutions over fixed number of meshes. This paper gives an interpretation of the concept of equidistribution for singularly perturbed problems to obtain higher-order accuracy. We have used the post-processing Richardson extrapolation technique to improve the accuracy of the parameter uniform computed solution, obtained on a mesh which is adaptively generated by equidistributing a monitor function. Numerical examples demonstrate the high quality behavior of the computed solution. More >

    Simulation Study on the Acoustic Field from Linear Phased Array Ultrasonic Transducer for Engine Cylinder Testing

    Xiaoxia Yang1, Shili Chen1, Fang Sun1, Shijiu Jin1, Wenshuang Chang1
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.90, No.6, pp. 487-500, 2013, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2013.090.487
    Abstract Ultrasonic phased array inspection technology is widely used in nondestructive evaluation (NDE) applications and it has been proved to be an effective method for flaw detections in industry. In our study, this nondestructive evaluation method is proposed to detect the corrosion defects on engine cylinders. In order to demonstrate its feasibility, it is necessary to study the characteristics of the acoustic field produced by a linear phased array ultrasonic transducer in the engine cylinders. In this paper, according to multi-Gaussian beam model and ray acoustics theory, we derive the expression of the acoustic field from a linear phased array ultrasonic… More >
