    Local Defect Correction for Boundary Integral Equation Methods

    G. Kakuba1, M. J. H. Anthonissen2
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.99, No.6, pp. 445-462, 2014, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2014.099.445
    Abstract The aim in this paper is to develop a new local defect correction approach to gridding for problems with localised regions of high activity in the boundary element method. The technique of local defect correction has been studied for other methods as finite difference methods and finite volume methods. The initial attempts to developing such a technique by the authors for the boundary element method was based on block decomposition and manipulation of the coefficient matrix and right hand side of the system of equations in three dimension. It ignored the inherent global nature of the boundary integral equation, that… More >

    Ambarzumyan Type Theorem For a Matrix Valued Quadratic Sturm-Liouville Problem

    Emrah Yilmaz1, Hikmet Koyunbakan2
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.99, No.6, pp. 463-471, 2014, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2014.099.463
    Abstract In this study, Ambarzumyan’s theorem for quadratic Sturm-Liouville problem is extended to second order differential systems of dimension d ≥ 2. It is shown that if the spectrum is the same as the spectrum belonging to the zero potential, then the matrix valued functions both P(x) and Q(x) are zero by imposing a condition on P(x). In scaler case, this problem was solved in [Koyunbakan, Lesnic and Panakhov (2013)]. More >

    A Precise Integration Method for Modeling GPR Wave Propagation in Layered Pavement Structure

    H. Y. Fang1,2,3, J. Liu4, F. M. Wang1,2
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.99, No.6, pp. 473-490, 2014, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2014.099.473
    Abstract Construction of electromagnetic wave propagation model in layered pavement structure is a key step in back analysis of ground penetrating radar (GPR) echo signal. The precise integration method (PIM) is a highly accurate, efficient, and unconditionally stable algorithm for solving 1-order ordinary differential equations. It is quite suitable for dealing with problems of wave propagation in layered media. In this paper, forward simulation of GPR electromagnetic wave propagating in homogeneous layered pavement structure is developed by employing PIM. To verify the performance of the proposed algorithm, simulated GPR signal is compared with the measured one. Excellent agreement is achieved. More >

    3D Echo-Based Patient-Specific Computational Left Ventricle Models to Quantify Material Properties and Stress/Strain Differences between Ventricles with and without Infarct

    Rui Fan1, Dalin Tang2,3, Jing Yao4, Chun Yang5, Di Xu4
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.99, No.6, pp. 491-508, 2014, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2014.099.491
    Abstract Identifying ventricle material properties and its infarct area after heart attack noninvasively is of great important in clinical applications. An echo-based computational modeling approach was proposed to investigate left ventricle (LV) mechanical properties and stress conditions using patient-specific data. Echo data was acquired from one healthy volunteer (male, age: 58) and a male patient (age: 60) who had an acute inferior myocardial infarction one week before echo image acquisition. Standard echocardiograms were obtained using an ultrasound machine (E9, GE Mechanical Systems, Milwaukee, Wisconsin) with a 3V probe and data were segmented for model construction. Finite element models were constructed to… More >
