    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.96, No.4, pp. 227-241, 2013, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2013.096.227
    Abstract This paper is concerned with a mathematical model of a simple axisymmetric silencer-like model, consisting of a hole-tone feedback system equipped with a tailpipe. The unstable shear layer is modeled via a discrete vortex method, based on axisymmetric vortex rings. The aeroacoustic model is based on the Powell- Howe theory of vortex sound. Boundary integrals are discretized via the boundary element method; but the tailpipe is represented by the exact (one-dimensional) solution. It is demonstrated though numerical examples that this numerical model can display lock-in of the self-sustained flow oscillations to the resonant acoustic oscillations. More >

    Efficient BEM Stress Analysis of 3D Generally Anisotropic Elastic Solids With Stress Concentrations and Cracks

    Y.C. Shiah1, C.L. Tan2, Y.H. Chen3
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.96, No.4, pp. 243-257, 2013, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2013.096.243
    Abstract The present authors have recently proposed an efficient, alternative approach to numerically evaluate the fundamental solution and its derivatives for 3D general anisotropic elasticity. It is based on a double Fourier series representation of the exact, explicit form of the Green’s function derived by Ting and Lee (1997). This paper reports on the successful implementation of the fundamental solution and its derivatives based on this Fourier series scheme in the boundary element method (BEM) for 3D general anisotropic elastostatics. Some numerical examples of stress concentration problems and a crack problem are presented to demonstrate the veracity of the implementation. The… More >

    Analysis of Multiple Inclusion Potential Problems by the Adaptive Cross Approximation Method

    R. Q. Rodríguez1, A.F. Galvis1, P. Sollero1, E. L. Albuquerque2
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.96, No.4, pp. 259-274, 2013, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2013.096.259
    Abstract Over recent years the rapid evolution of the computational power has motivated the development of new numerical techniques to account for engineering solutions. The Boundary Element Method (BEM) has shown to be a powerful numeric tool for the analysis and solution of many physical and engineering problems. However, BEM fully populated and non-symmetric system matrices implies in higher memory requirements and solution times. This work analyze the application of hierarchical matrices and low rank approximations, applying the Adaptive Cross Approximation - ACA, to multiple inclusion potential problems. The use of hierarchical format is aimed at reducing the storage requirement and… More >

    DRBEM Solution of Incompressible MHD Flow with Magnetic Potential

    B. Pekmen1,2, M. Tezer-Sezgin2,3
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.96, No.4, pp. 275-292, 2013, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2013.096.275
    Abstract The dual reciprocity boundary element method (DRBEM) formulation is presented for solving incompressible magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) flow equations. The combination of Navier-Stokes equations of fluid dynamics and Maxwell’s equations of electromagnetics through Ohm’s law is considered in terms of stream function, vorticity and magnetic potential in 2D. The velocity field and the induced magnetic field can be determined through the relations with stream function and magnetic potential, respectively. The numerical results are visualized for several values of Reynolds (Re), Hartmann (Ha) and magnetic Reynolds number (Rem) in a lid-driven cavity, and in a channel with a square cylinder. The well-known characteristics… More >
