    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.16, No.3, pp. 69-70, 2011, DOI:10.3970/icces.2011.016.069
    Abstract Recent work carried out at the Institute of Structural Analysis of the Leibniz University Hannover in the field of composite materials and composite structures is presented. Analysis tools for composite materials and structures are under development, which enable a robust and cost efficient design. Three key areas for design and analysis of composite structures will be covered in the presentation, namely strength, stability, and fatigue analysis.
    Predicting the material properties of imperfect composite structures with manufacturing defects such as waviness defects or porosities is still an open challenge. Several analytical approaches exist to determine the reduction of elastic properties… More >

    ABSTRACT

    The coupling FEM and NBEM with non-matching grids for a class of nonlinear boundary value problems

    Ju E Yang, Qiya Hu, Dehao Yu
    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.16, No.3, pp. 71-72, 2011, DOI:10.3970/icces.2011.016.071
    Abstract In this paper, based on the natural boundary reduction method advanced bu Feng and Yu, we are concerned with a domain decomposition method with nonmatching grids for a certain nonlinear interface problem in unbounded domains. We first discuss a new coupling of finite element and boundary element by adding an auxiliary circle. Then we use a dual basis multipier on the interface to provide the numerical analysis with nonmatching grids. Finally, we give some numerical examples further to confirm our theoretical results.

    ABSTRACT

    A Case Study of Mud-Weight Design with Finite Element Method for Subsalt Wells

    X.P. Shen, A. Diaz, T. Sheehy ,
    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.16, No.3, pp. 73-74, 2011, DOI:10.3970/icces.2011.016.073
    Abstract This paper presents a case study for the design of a mud-weight window (MWW) with three-dimensional (3D) finite-element (FE) tools for subsalt wells. The trajectory of the target well penetrates a 20,000-ft thick salt body.

    The numerical solution of the MWW for the target wellbore consists two parts: the shear failure gradient (SFG) and the fracture gradient (FG). Because the pore pressure and material distributions are nonuniform, the calculations of SFG and FG must be performed with submodeling techniques for a given depth point at a smaller local scale. A numerical scheme has been proposed for calculating the SFG… More >

    ABSTRACT

    An Efficient Method for Linear PDE with Stochastic Input

    Frederic Y.M. Wan1
    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.16, No.3, pp. 75-76, 2011, DOI:10.3970/icces.2011.016.075
    Abstract Linear PDE are often appropriate as mathematical models for space-time biological phenomena. Among these are 1) Rall's equivalent cylinder model for cable neurons (see [1,2] and references therein), and 2) morphogen gradients with low receptor occupancy (see [3.4] and references therein). For some of these problems including cable neurons under synaptic current injection, we are interested in the system's response to stochastic excitations. The present paper offers a practical and efficient method for determining the statistical properties of the model response. For linear problems, the solution of an initial-boundary value problem in PDE is in principle given by the relevant… More >

    A New Insight into the Differential Quadrature Method in Solving 2-D Elliptic PDEs

    Ying-Hsiu Shen, Chein-Shan Liu
    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.16, No.3, pp. 77-78, 2011, DOI:10.3970/icces.2011.016.077
    Abstract When the local differential quadrature (LDQ) has been successfully applied to solve two-dimensional problems, the global method of DQ still has a problem by requiring to solve the inversions of ill-posed matrices. Previously, when one uses (n-1)th order polynomial test functions to determine the weighting coefficients with n grid points, the resultant nxn Vandermonde matrix is highly ill-conditioned and its inversion is hard to solve. Now we use (m-1)th order polynomial test functions by n grid points that the size of Vandermonde matrix is mxn, of which m is much less than n. We find that the (m-1)th order polynomial… More >

    Microstructure Informatics Using Higher-Order Statistics and Efficient Data-Mining Protocols

    Surya R. Kalidindi, Stephen R. Niezgoda, Ayman A. Salem
    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.16, No.3, pp. 79-80, 2011, DOI:10.3970/icces.2011.016.079
    Abstract Microstructure Informatics is a critical building block of ICME infrastructure. Accelerated design and development of new advanced materials with improved performance characteristics and their successful insertion in engineering practice are largely hindered by the lack of a rigorous mathematical framework for the robust generation of microstructure informatics relevant to the specific application. In this paper, we describe a set of novel and efficient computational protocols that are capable of accelerating significantly the process of building the needed microstructure informatics for a targeted application. These novel protocols have several advantages over the current practice in the field: (i) they allow archival,… More >

    Numerical Simulation of Fluid-Structure Interaction of LNG Prestressed Storage Tank under Seismic Influence

    X.H. Du, X.P. Shen
    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.16, No.3, pp. 81-82, 2011, DOI:10.3970/icces.2011.016.081
    Abstract Aim of this paper is to simulate the fluid-structure interaction of liquefied natural gas (LNG) prestressed storage tank under seismic influence. The coupled Eulerian-Lagrangian (CEL) analysis technique is used to simulate the hydrodynamic interaction between LNG and the cylinder of LNG prestressed storage tank. The 3-D model of LNG has been dispersed by Eulerian mesh which is different from traditional added mass analysis method. Meanwhile, both of the 3-D models of prestressed rebar and concrete structure are dispersed by Lagrangian mesh. Following conclusions are obtained: 1) Natural frequency of the whole model has been obtained by using the Block Lanczos… More >

    ABSTRACT

    Three-Dimensional Analysis of Stress Pattern within Salt-Base Formation and Integrated Method for Design of Mud-Weight Window

    Xinpu Shen
    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.16, No.3, pp. 83-84, 2011, DOI:10.3970/icces.2011.016.083
    Abstract In practice, the mud-weight window (MWW) of a given wellbore can be designed with either two-dimensional (2D) analytical software or three-dimensional (3D) numerical finite element (FE) software. The advantage of 2D analytical tools is that they are highly efficient. Their major disadvantage is that several assumptions are adopted with the input data. These assumptions may not be accurate enough for subsalt wells. The advantage of the 3D numerical method is that it can accurately calculate the initial geo-stress field with a 3D FE model. Its major disadvantage is that it is not as efficient as the 2D method.

    ABSTRACT

    IRBFEs for the numerical solution of steady incompressible flows

    D.-A. An-Vo, N. Mai-Duy, T. Tran-Cong
    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.16, No.3, pp. 87-88, 2011, DOI:10.3970/icces.2011.016.087
    Abstract In this paper, we develop a control-volume technique based on 2-node integrated-radial-basis-function elements (IRBFEs) for the numerical solution of steady incompressible flows governed by the stream function-vorticity formulation. The fluid domain is discretised by a Cartesian grid from which non-overlapping rectangular control- volumes are formed. Line integrals arising from the integration of the diffusion and convection terms over control volumes are evaluated using the middle-point rule. The convection term is effectively treated by the upwind scheme with deferred correction strategy. Instead of using conventional low-order polynomials, all physical quantities at the interfaces are presently estimated by means of 2-node IRBFEs.… More >

    Development of Intrinsic Formulation of W.-Z. Chien of the Geometrically Nonlinear Theory of Thin Elastic Shells

    Wojciech Pietraszkiewicz
    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.16, No.3, pp. 89-90, 2011, DOI:10.3970/icces.2011.016.089
    Abstract Wei-zhang Chien (1944) derived the equilibrium equations and the compatibility conditions of the nonlinear theory of thin, isotropic elastic shells entirely in terms of the surface stress and strain measures associated with the shell base surface. This allowed Him to divide the complex boundary value problem (BVP) of nonlinear shell analysis into two disjoint and supposedly simpler steps: I) finding the surface stress and strain measures, and II) establishing displacements from already known surfacestrainmeasures. In the present paper some achievements of this formulation obtained during the last 66 years are reviewed, with special account of the results obtained by the… More >

    Correlation of Crack Initiation Parameters with Life Estimation for Very-High-Cycle Fatigue of High Strength Steels

    Youshi Hong, Chengqi Sun, Aiguo Zhao
    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.16, No.3, pp. 91-92, 2011, DOI:10.3970/icces.2011.016.091
    Abstract The researches on the behavior of very-high-cycle fatigue (VHCF) for high strength steels have become a new branch in the field of metal fatigue since 1980s. The characteristics of crack initiation and propagation for high strength steels in VHCF regime differ from those in low cycle and high cycle fatigue regimes. One of the most distinct phenomena for VHCF regime is the interior or subsurface crack initiation at inclusions or at other inhomogeneities. In fact, the period of crack initiation and early growth dominates the fatigue life, which is extremely evident for the fatigue process containing VHCF regime. This paper… More >

    Natural Boundary Element Method for Stress Field of Rock Surrounding Roadway with Local Short Supporting

    Shuncai Li, Zhengzhu Dong, Dan Ma.
    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.16, No.3, pp. 93-94, 2011, DOI:10.3970/icces.2011.016.093
    Abstract Roadway with local short supporting is not only a common phenomenon in engineering, but also short of in-depth theoretical study. Existing literature on underground stress field theory of surrounding rock, generally gives the analytical solution of stress for the surrounding rock of roadway with uniform supporting or no supporting, but doesn't give a corresponding stress solution for local supporting or local short supporting. Based on the circular roadway local short supporting mechanical model, according to the boundary element method of bi-harmonic boundary value problem of exterior circular domain, the boundary integral formula of Airy stress function is deduced for the… More >

    Calculation on the Ultimate Vertical Strength of Steel Tube in CFST Stub Column

    Zhi-quan Zhang, Jia-xiang Chi, Yu-fen Zhang
    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.16, No.3, pp. 95-96, 2011, DOI:10.3970/icces.2011.016.095
    Abstract This paper concentrates on the compressive strength of steel tube in Concrete-filled steel tube (CFST) column. Through an elasto-plastic limit analysis based on Twin Shear Unified Strength Theory (TSUST), the vertical load capacity of the steel tube alone was analyzed by adopting a parameter b, which varies from 0 to 1. And the strength reduction factor has been derived by total theory of plasticity. A new analytical formula, capable of predicting the axial bearing capacity of the CFST stub columns subjected to axial compression, has been developed based on the linear approximation of Mises yield criterion among TSUST. And There… More >
