    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.99, No.1, pp. 1-85, 2014, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2014.099.001
    Abstract In this expository article, a variety of computational methods, such as Collocation, Finite Volume, Finite Element, Boundary Element, MLPG (Meshless Local Petrov Galerkin), Trefftz methods, and Method of Fundamental Solutions, etc., which are often used in isolated ways in contemporary literature are presented in a unified way, and are illustrated to solve a 4th order ordinary differential equation (beam on an elastic foundation). Both the primal formulation, which considers the 4th order ODE with displacement as the primitive variable, as well as two types of mixed formulations (one resulting in a set of 2 second-order ODEs, and the other resulting… More >

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.99, No.1, pp. 87-104, 2014, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2014.099.087
    Abstract To speed up the elastic–plastic analysis of a large-scale model with a crack in which plasticity is observed near the crack, the partitioned coupling method is applied. In this method, the entire analysis model is decomposed into two non-overlapped domains (i.e., global and local domains), and the two domains are analyzed with an iterative method. The cracked local domain is modeled as an elastic–plastic body, whereas the large-scale global domain is modeled as an elastic body. A subcycling technique is utilized for incremental analysis to reduce the number of global elastic analyses. For a benchmark problem with 6 million degrees… More >
