    The MLPG(5) for the Analysis of Transient Heat Transfer in the Frequency Domain

    L. Godinho1, D. Dias-da-Costa2
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.96, No.5, pp. 293-316, 2013, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2013.096.293
    Abstract Transient heat conduction problems can be dealt with using different numerical approaches. In some recent papers, a strategy to tackle these problems using a frequency domain formulation has been presented and successfully applied associated to methods such as the BEM. Here a formulation of the meshless local Petrov-Galerkin (MLPG) is developed and presented to allow the analysis of such problems. The proposed formulation makes use of the RBF-based version of the MLPG and employs the Heaviside step function as the test function, leading to the so-called MLPG(5). In addition, the method is associated with a visibility criterion to allow the… More >

    Fuzzy Analysis of Structures with Imprecisely Defined Properties

    Diptiranjan Behera1, Snehashish Chakraverty2
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.96, No.5, pp. 317-337, 2013, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2013.096.317
    Abstract This paper targets to analyse the static response of structures with fuzzy parameters using fuzzy finite element method. Here the material, geometrical properties and external load applied to the structures are taken as uncertain. Uncertainties presents in the parameters are modelled through convex normalised fuzzy sets. Fuzzy finite element method converts the problem into fuzzy or fully fuzzy system of linear equations for static analysis. As such here, two new methods are proposed to solve the fuzzy and fully fuzzy system of linear equations. Numerical examples for structures with uncertain system parameters that are in term of triangular fuzzy number… More >

    Solution of the Inverse Radiative Transfer Problem of Simultaneous Identification of the Optical Thickness and Space-Dependent Albedo Using Bayesian Inference

    D. C. Knupp1,2, A. J. Silva Neto3
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.96, No.5, pp. 339-360, 2013, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2013.096.339
    Abstract Inverse radiative transfer problems in heterogeneous participating media applications include determining gas properties in combustion chambers, estimating environmental and atmospheric conditions, and remote sensing, among others. In recent papers the spatially variable single scattering albedo has been estimated by expanding this unknown function as a series of known functions, and then estimating the expansion coefficients with parameter estimation techniques. In the present work we assume that there is no prior information on the functional form of the unknown spatially variable albedo and, making use of the Bayesian approach, we propose the development of a posterior probability density, which is explored… More >

    Operational Matrix Method for Solving Variable Order Fractional Integro-differential Equations

    Mingxu Yi1, Jun Huang1, Lifeng Wang1
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.96, No.5, pp. 361-377, 2013, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2013.096.361
    Abstract In this paper, operational matrix method based upon the Bernstein polynomials is proposed to solve the variable order fractional integro-differential equations in the Caputo derivative sense. We derive the Bernstein polynomials operational matrix of fractional order integration and introduce the product operational matrix of Bernstein polynomials. A truncated the Bernstein polynomials series together with the polynomials operational matrix are utilized to reduce the variable order fractional integro-differential equations to a system of algebraic equations. Only a small number of Bernstein polynomials are needed to obtain a satisfactory result. Some examples are included to demonstrate the validity and applicability of the… More >
