    ABSTRACT

    Real time ultrasonic imaging of aerospace composites

    Brad Regez1, Sridhar Krishnaswamy1
    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.12, No.4, pp. 111-112, 2009, DOI:10.3970/icces.2009.012.111
    Abstract Ultrasonic inspection techniques have a proven record of applications during manufacturing and maintenance of metallic and composite aircraft structures. Traditional ultrasonic inspection techniques use a point-by-point scanning method to acquire a full-field image. This scanning method is slow and inadequate in satisfying modern manufacturing and maintenance time line requirements. The next generation of ultrasonic inspection eliminates the need for point-by-point scanning using an imaging array that is capable of displaying thousands of points to create a full-field image in real-time.
    In this study, a next generation dual-channel ultrasonic imaging system is used for real-time three-dimensional evaluation of small composite aerospace… More >

    ABSTRACT

    A weakened weak (W2) formulation for certified solutions with bounds, real-time computation and inverse analysis of biomechanics problems

    G. R. Liu1, 2
    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.12, No.4, pp. 113-114, 2009, DOI:10.3970/icces.2009.012.113
    Abstract This paper introduces first a weakened weakform (W2) using a generalized gradient smoothing technique for an unified formulation of a wide class of compatible and incompatible displacement methods including settings of the finite element methods (FEM) and meshfree methods of special properties including the upper bound properties. A G space is first defined to include discontinuous functions allowing the use of much more types of methods/techniques to create shape functions for numerical models; Properties and a set of important inequalities for G spaces are then proven in theory and analyzed in detail. We prove that the numerical methods developed based… More >

    Solvability of a Plane Integral Geometry Problem\ and a Solution Algorithm

    Arif Amirov1, Mustafa Yildiz1, Zekeriya Ustaoglu1
    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.12, No.4, pp. 115-124, 2009, DOI:10.3970/icces.2009.012.115
    Abstract In this work we deal with solvability and aproximation to the solution of the two dimensional integral geometry problem for a family of regular curves of given curvature. Solvability of the problem is proved by using the Galerkin method and an algorithm is developed to compute the approximate solution of the problem. More >

    ABSTRACT

    An Inverse Problem for the General Kinetic Equation and a Numerical Method

    Arif Amirov1, Fikret Gölgeleyen1, Ayten Rahmanova2
    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.12, No.4, pp. 125-136, 2009, DOI:10.3970/icces.2009.012.125
    Abstract This paper has two purposes. The first is to prove the existence and uniqueness of the solution of an inverse problem for the general linear kinetic equation with a scattering term. The second one is to develop a numerical approximation method for the solution of this inverse problem for two dimensional case using finite difference method. More >

    ABSTRACT

    A New Quadtree-based Image Compression Technique using Pattern Matching Algorithm

    F. Keissarian1
    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.12, No.4, pp. 137-144, 2009, DOI:10.3970/icces.2009.012.137
    Abstract In this paper, a new image compression technique is proposed in which variable block size technique is adopted, using quadtree decomposition, for coding images at low bit rates. The proposed algorithm decomposes the host image into blocks of variable sizes according to histogram analysis of the block residuals. Variable block sizes are then encoded at different rates based on their visual activity levels. To preserve edge integrity, a high-detail block is coded by a set of parameters associated with the pattern appearing inside the block. The use of these parameters at the receiver together with the quadtree code reduces the… More >

    ABSTRACT

    Issues Regard Statistic Intervention in Management of Coaching Factors with Application In Football (Soccer)

    Nucu Antohi1, Eugen Merticaru2, Emil Budescu2
    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.12, No.4, pp. 145-146, 2009, DOI:10.3970/icces.2009.012.145
    Abstract In the theory of coaching an important role belongs to the factorial management. The art of planning, controlling and evaluating the main factors (physical, technical, tactical, psychological and theoretical) gives to the coach the real value of his work. The individualization of these factors turn the process of coaching into a complex activity which in nowadays has teamwork finality: to achieve the performance. At the same time, the manager of the whole process of coaching has the whole responsibility of the task.
    All the sports have specialists who make decisions to improve the process of coaching, to transform the competition… More >

    ABSTRACT

    Heat and mass transfer by natural convection in porous media due to opposing buoyancy effects with Boundary Domain Integral Method

    Janja Kramer, Renata Jecl, Leopold Skerget
    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.12, No.4, pp. 147-148, 2009, DOI:10.3970/icces.2009.012.147
    Abstract A numerical study of double diffusive natural convection in porous media due to opposing buoyancy forces is reported, using the Boundary Domain Integral Method (BDIM). There have been several reported studies dealing with natural convection in porous media, mainly because of its importance in several industrial and technological applications. Less attention, however, has been dedicated to the so-called double diffusive problems, where density gradients occur due to the effects of combined temperature and concentration buoyancy. The current investigation is focused on the special problem, where the thermal and solutal buoyancy forces are opposing each other.

    ABSTRACT

    Computation of derivatives of stress intensity factors for two-dimensional anisotropic crack problems using fractal finite element method

    R.M. Reddy1, B.N. Rao2
    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.12, No.4, pp. 149-150, 2009, DOI:10.3970/icces.2009.012.149
    Abstract Probabilistic fracture mechanics (PFM) blends the theory of fracture mechanics and the probability theory provides a more rational means to describe the actual behavior and reliability of structures. However in PFM, the fracture parameters and their derivatives are often required to predict the probability of fracture initiation and/or instability in cracked structures. The calculation of the derivatives of fracture parameters with respect to load and material parameters, which constitutes size-sensitivity analysis, is not unduly difficult. However, the evaluation of response derivatives with respect to crack size was a challenging task, since it requires shape sensitivity analysis [1]. Using a brute-force… More >

    ABSTRACT

    Two-step Approach for Finite Element Model Updating of Bridge Using Ambient Vibration Data

    Soojin Cho1, Jin-Hak Yi2, Chung-Bang Yun1
    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.12, No.4, pp. 151-152, 2009, DOI:10.3970/icces.2009.012.151
    Abstract The bridges are exposed to severe operational and environmental loadings, such as traffic, wind, and earthquake during their life time. Continuous exposure to such severe loadings may lead to structural damage requiring costly repair/retrofit and even may result in an unexpected disaster, which emphasizes the importance of assessing the current condition of bridges. From the last decade, FE model updating techniques based on the bridge dynamic characteristics are emerged to evaluate the current condition of bridges quantitatively. Most of the model updating techniques basically utilize an optimization process with an objective function built up by the residuals between the natural… More >
