    Arbitrary Stokes Flow About A Fixed or Freely-Suspended Slip Particle

    A. Sellier
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.96, No.3, pp. 159-176, 2013, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2013.096.159
    Abstract The rigid-body migration of a slip and arbitrary-shaped solid particle freely suspended in a prescribed and arbitrary ambient Stokes flow is determined after calculating the hydrodynamic force and torque exerted on the particle when it either experiences a given rigid-body in a quiescent liquid or is held fixed in the ambient Stokes flow. It is also shown how one can subsequently obtain the velocity and surface traction on the particle boundary and thereafter, if necessary, the flow about the particle in the entire liquid domain. The advocated procedure extends a recent work (see Sellier (2012)) and consists in inverting at… More >

    The Far-field Green’s Integral in Stokes Flow from the Boundary Integral Formulation

    E.A. Chadwick1
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.96, No.3, pp. 177-184, 2013, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2013.096.177
    Abstract In boundary integral methods for Stokes flow, the far-field Green’s integral is usually taken to be zero without proof. However, this is not obviously the case, the reason being that Stokes flow is a near-field approximation and breaks down in the far-field. Here, we show that it is zero as expected by matching it to a far-field Green’s integral in Oseen flow. Hence, there are similarities to the matched asymptotic procedure matching a near-field Stokes flow to a far-field Oseen flow, except in this case a different and new procedure is required to deal with the Green’s integrals. In particular,… More >

    The Use of the BE SBS Algorithm to Evaluate Boundary and Interface Stresses in 3D Solids

    F.C. de Araújo1,2, C. R. da Silva Jr.1, M. J. Hillesheim1
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.96, No.3, pp. 185-198, 2013, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2013.096.185
    Abstract In this paper, the BE SBS (subregion-by-subregion) algorithm, a generic substructuring technique for the BEM, is applied to evaluate stresses at boundary and interfacial points of general 3D composites and solids. At inner points, regular boundary integration schemes may be employed. For boundary or interfacial points, the Hooke’s law along with global-to-local axis-rotation transformations is directly applied. In fact, in thin-walled domain parts, only boundary stresses are needed. As the SBS algorithm allows the consideration of a generic number of subregions, the technique applies to the stress analysis in any composite and solid, including the microstructural (grain-by-grain) modeling of materials.… More >

    Two Dimensional Nonlocal Elasticity Analysis by Local Integral Equation Method

    P.H. Wen1, X.J. Huang1, M.H. Aliabadi2
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.96, No.3, pp. 199-225, 2013, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2013.096.199
    Abstract In this paper, a Local Integral Equation Method (LIEM) is presented for solving two-dimensional nonlocal elasticity problems . The approach is based on the Eringen’s model with LIEM and the interpolation using the radial basis functions to obtain the numerical solutions for 2D problems. A weak form for the set of governing equations with a unit test function is transformed into the local integral equations. The meshless approximation technique with radial basis functions is employed for the implementation of displacements. A set of the local domain integrals is obtained in analytical form for the local elasticity and by using a… More >
