    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.94, No.1, pp. 1-28, 2013, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2013.094.001
    Abstract In this paper, a novel Meshless Local Petrov-Galerkin (MLPG) Mixed Collocation Method is developed for solving the inverse Cauchy problem of linear elasticity, wherein both the tractions as well as displacements are prescribed/measured at a small portion of the boundary of an elastic body. The elastic body may be isotropic/anisotropic and simply connected or multiply-connected. In the MLPG mixed collocation method, the same meshless basis function is used to interpolate both the displacement as well as the stress fields. The nodal stresses are expressed in terms of nodal displacements by enforcing the constitutive relation between stress and the displacement gradient… More >

    Periodic Collinear Circular-Hole Cracks in an Infinite Plate in Tension

    Changqing Miao1, Yintao Wei2, Xiangqiao Yan1
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.94, No.1, pp. 29-52, 2013, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2013.094.029
    Abstract This paper is concerned with periodic collinear circular-hole cracks in an infinite plate in tension. A numerical approach to this type of circular-hole cracks is presented. Numerical examples are included to illustrate the accuracy of the numerical approach. By means of a generalization of Bueckner's principle and by using a displacement discontinuity method, periodic collinear circular-hole cracks in an infinite plate in tension are investigated in detail by using the numerical approach. Many numerical results are given and discussed. More >

    Topological Design of Structures Using a Cellular Automata Method

    Yixian Du1,2,3,4, De Chen1, Xiaobo Xiang1, Qihua Tian1, Yi Zhang1
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.94, No.1, pp. 53-75, 2013, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2013.094.053
    Abstract Topological design of continuum structures usually involves numerical instabilities, such as checkerboards and mesh-dependency, which degenerate the manufacturability, the efficiency and the robustness of the optimal design. This paper will propose a new topology optimization method to suppress numerical instabilities occurred in the topology optimization of continua, according to the principle of error amplifier and feedback control in the control system. The design variables associated with topological design are updated based on the Cellular Automata (CA) theory. A couple of typical numerical examples are used to demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed method in effectively suppressing numerical instabilities occurred in… More >

    A New Modified Adomian Decomposition Method for Higher-Order Nonlinear Dynamical Systems

    Jun-Sheng Duan1,2, Randolph Rach3, Abdul-Majid Wazwaz4
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.94, No.1, pp. 77-118, 2013, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2013.094.077
    Abstract In this paper, we propose a new modification of the Adomian decomposition method for solution of higher-order nonlinear initial value problems with variable system coefficients and solutions of systems of coupled nonlinear initial value problems. We consider various algorithms for the Adomian decomposition series and the series of Adomian polynomials to calculate the solutions of canonical first- and second-order nonlinear initial value problems in order to derive a systematic algorithm for the general case of higher-order nonlinear initial value problems and systems of coupled higher-order nonlinear initial value problems. Our new modified recursion scheme is designed to decelerate the Adomian… More >
