    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.95, No.5, pp. 351-367, 2013, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2013.095.351
    Abstract The application of a CPU/GPU-based particle method to dam-breaking incompressible viscous fluid flow problems is presented. The particle approach is based on the MPS (Moving Particle Semi-implicit) scheme using logarithmic weighting function to stabilize the spurious oscillatory solutions for solving the Poisson equation with respect to the pressure fields by using GPU-based SCG (Scaled Conjugate Gradient) method. The physics-based computer graphics for the results of three-dimensional simulation consist of the POV-Ray (Persistence of Vision Raytracer) rendering using marching cubes algorithm as polygonization. Numerical results demonstrate the workability and the validity of the present approach through the dam-breaking flow problem. More >

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.95, No.5, pp. 369-390, 2013, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2013.095.369
    Abstract In this paper, we present a free surface flow model with a forced revolving moving boundary for partially filled screw extrusion. The incompressible smoothed particle hydrodynamics (ISPH) is used to simulate this complex flow. A set of organic glass experimental device for this partially filled fluid is manufactured. SPH results are satisfactorily compared with experiment results. The computed free surfaces are in good agreement with the free surfaces obtained from the experiment. Further analysis shows that with the increase of the speed, the average velocity of fluid increases, the effect of centrifugal force begin to show up, the maximum pressure… More >

    Exact Elasticity Solution for Natural Frequencies of Functionally Graded Simply-supported Structures

    S. Brischetto1
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.95, No.5, pp. 391-430, 2013, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2013.095.391
    Abstract This paper gives an exact three-dimensional elastic model for the free vibration analysis of functionally graded one-layered and sandwich simply-supported plates and shells. An exact elasticity solution is proposed for the differential equations of equilibrium written in general orthogonal curvilinear coordinates. The equations consider a geometry for shells without simplifications, and allow the analysis of the cases of spherical shell panels, cylindrical shell panels, cylindrical closed shells and plates. The main novelty is the possibility of a general formulation for these geometries. The coefficients in equilibrium equations depend on the thickness coordinate because of the radii of curvature for the… More >

    Comparison and Performance Analysis of Multiple CPU/GPU Computing Systems – Resin Infusion Flow Modeling Application

    R.H. Haney1, R.V. Mohan2
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.95, No.5, pp. 431-452, 2013, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2013.095.431
    Abstract The use of Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) as co-processors for single CPU/GPU computing systems has become pronounced in high performance computing research, however the solution of truly large scale computationally intensive problems require the utilization of multiple computing nodes. Multiple CPU/GPU computing systems bring new complexities to the observed performance of computationally intensive applications, the more salient of which is the cost of local CPU-GPU host and intra-nodal communication. This paper compares and analyzes the performance of a computationally intensive application represented by resin infusion flow during liquid composite molding process for the manufacture of structural composites application via two… More >
