    Abstract A method to predict the permeation of water vapor, present in a laminar flowing humid carrier gas, through a hollow fiber membrane is presented. The method uses simulation particles that move like molecules, according to the kinetic gas theory, but carry the physical properties of an ensemble of molecules which they statistically represent. With this approach an ideal operational window for membrane modules can be found and parameters tested for, can be varied over orders of magnitude. The results show that the right dimensioning is essential for the efficient use of the membrane area. More >

    A Two-Side Equilibration Method to Reduce the Condition Number of an Ill-Posed Linear System

    Chein-Shan Liu1 CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.91, No.1, pp. 17-42, 2013, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2013.091.017
    Abstract In the present paper, we propose a novel two-side equilibration method to properly reduce the condition number of a given non-singular matrix only through a few operations. Then, two different conditioners together with the conjugate gradient method (CGM) are developed, which can overcome the defect of CGM, being not vulnerable to noisy disturbance exerted on an ill-posed linear system. The twoside CGM (TSCGM) and the pre-conditioning CGM (PrCGM) are convergent fast and accurate in solving linear inverse problems and the linear Hilbert problem under a large random noise. More >

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.91, No.1, pp. 43-63, 2013, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2013.091.043
    Abstract The violent free-surface motions interacting with floating vessels containing inner liquid tanks are investigated by using the newly developed Moving Particle Semi-implicit (MPS) method for 2-dimensional incompressible flow simulation. In the present numerical examples, many efficient and robust algorithms have been developed and applied to improve the overall quality and efficiency in solving various highly nonlinear free-surface problems and evaluating impact pressures compared to the original MPS method proposed by Koshizuka and Oka (1996). For illustration, the improved MPS method is applied to the simulation of nonlinear floating-body motions, violent sloshing motions and corresponding impact loads, and vessel motions with… More >

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.91, No.1, pp. 65-80, 2013, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2013.091.065
    Abstract In order to study the rheological characteristics of magnetorheological fluids, a simulation approach through integration of Monte Carlo method and GPU accelerated technology was proposed and the three-dimensional micro-structure of magnetic particles in different strength magnetic fields were simulated. The Monte Carlo method to magnetic particles of magnetorheological fluids and its key steps such as particle modeling, magnetic energy equations calculating and system state updating were elaborated. Moreover, GPU accelerated technology was applied to the simulation of magnetorheological fluids to reduce computational time and a flowchart for the proposed approach was designed. Finally, a physics experiment was carried out and… More >
