    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.92, No.5, pp. 423-475, 2013, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2013.092.423
    Abstract A review is presented for analysis of problems in engineering & the sciences, with the use of the meshless local Petrov-Galerkin (MLPG) method. The success of the meshless methods lie in the local nature, as well as higher order continuity, of the trial function approximations, high adaptivity and a low cost to prepare input data for numerical analyses, since the creation of a finite element mesh is not required. There is a broad variety of meshless methods available today; however the focus is placed on the MLPG method, in this paper. The MLPG method is a fundamental base for the… More >

    Dynamic Route Guidance Based on Model Predictive Control

    Yonghua Zhou1, Xun Yang1, Chao Mi1
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.92, No.5, pp. 477-491, 2013, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2013.092.477
    Abstract Route selections for vehicles can be equivalent to determine the optimized operation processes for vehicles which intertwine with each other. This paper attempts to utilize the whole methodology of model predictive control to engender rational routes for vehicles, which involves three important parts, i.e. simulation prediction, rolling optimization and feedback adjustment. The route decisions are implemented over the rolling prediction horizon taking the real-time feedback information and the future intertwined operation processes into account. The driving behaviors and route selection speculations of drivers and even traffic propagation models are on-line identified and adapted for the simulation prediction in next prediction… More >

    Wavelet solution of a class of two-dimensional nonlinear boundary value problems

    Xiaojing Liu1, Jizeng Wang1,2, Youhe Zhou1,2
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.92, No.5, pp. 493-505, 2013, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2013.092.493
    Abstract By combining techniques of boundary extension and Coiflet-type wavelet expansion, an approximation scheme for a function defined on a two-dimensional bounded space is proposed. In this wavelet approximation, each expansion coefficient can be directly obtained by a single-point sampling of the function. And the boundary values and derivatives of the bounded function can be embedded in the modified wavelet basis. Based on this approximation scheme, a modified wavelet Galerkin method is developed for solving two-dimensional nonlinear boundary value problems, in which the interpolating property makes the solution of such strong nonlinear problems very effective and accurate. As an example, we… More >

    An alternating finite difference material point method for numerical simulation of high explosive explosion problems

    X. X. Cui1, X. Zhang1,2, K. Y. Sze3, X. Zhou4
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.92, No.5, pp. 507-538, 2013, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2013.092.507
    Abstract Based on the material point method (MPM), an alternating finite difference material point (AFDMP) method is proposed for modeling the 3D high explosive (HE) explosion and its interaction with structures nearby. The initiatory detonation and eventual fluid structure interaction (FSI) are simulated by the standard MPM. On the other hand, the finite difference method (FDM) is employed to simulate the dispersion of the detonation products into the surrounding air where the particles degenerate to marker points which track the moving interface between detonation products and air. The conversion between MPM and FDM is implemented by the projection between the particles… More >
