    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.5, No.2, pp. 47-54, 2008, DOI:10.3970/icces.2008.005.047
    Abstract The authors have proposed Fractal and Hierarchical Multi-Grid Methods for solving ultra large FE problems [1, 2]. In these methods, the domain to be analyzed is subdivided into multi-grid which has fractal or hierarchical structure and the solution is obtained by solving equations for small cells or nodes at each hierarchy successively. In this research, potential capability of a Hierarchical Multi-Grid method is examined through simple example problems. More >

    ABSTRACT

    The Lie-Group Shooting Method for Nonlinear Two-Point Boundary Value Problems Exhibiting Multiple Solutions

    Chein-Shan Liu1
    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.5, No.2, pp. 55-84, 2008, DOI:10.3970/icces.2008.005.055
    Abstract The present paper provides a Lie-group shooting method for the numerical solutions of second-order nonlinear boundary value problems exhibiting multiple solutions. It aims to find all solutions as easy as possible. The boundary conditions considered are classified into four types, namely the Dirichlet, the first Robin, the second Robin and the Neumann. The two Robin type problems are transformed into a canonical one by using the technique of symmetric extension of the governing equations. The Lie-group shooting method is very effective to search unknown initial condition through a weighting factor r(0,1). Furthermore, the closed-form solutions are derived to calculate the… More >

    ABSTRACT

    Computational Methods of Ultrasound Wave Propagation in Healing Long Bones

    D. I. Fotiadis1
    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.5, No.2, pp. 85-92, 2008, DOI:10.3970/icces.2008.005.085
    Abstract Quantitative ultrasound has attracted significant interest in the evaluation of bone fracture healing. Animal and clinical studies have demonstrated that the propagation velocity across fractured bones can be used as an indicator of healing. Researchers have recently employed computational methods for modeling wave propagation in bones aiming to gain insight into the underlying mechanisms of wave propagation and to further enhance the monitoring capabilities of ultrasound. In this paper we review the computational studies of ultrasound wave propagation in intact and healing bones. More >

    ABSTRACT

    Mechanics of Inflatable Fabric Beams

    C. Wielgosz1, J. C. Thomas1, A. Le Van1
    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.5, No.2, pp. 93-98, 2008, DOI:10.3970/icces.2008.005.093
    Abstract In this paper we present a summary of the behaviour of inflatable fabric beams. Analytical studies on inflatable fabric beams are presented and inflatable fabric beam finite elements are described. The stiffness matrixes take into account the inflation pressure. Shakedown analysis is used to calculate limit loads of inflatable fabric beams. Results on the dynamic behaviour of inflatable beams are finally displayed. More >

    ABSTRACT

    A Meshless Local Petrov-Galerkin Method for the Analysis of Cracks in the Isotropic Functionally Graded Material

    K. Y. Liu1,2, S. Y. Long1,2,3, G. Y. Li1
    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.5, No.2, pp. 99-120, 2008, DOI:10.3970/icces.2008.005.099
    Abstract A meshless local Petrov-Galerkin method (MLPG)[1] for the analysis of cracks in isotropic functionally graded materials is presented. The meshless method uses the moving least squares (MLS) to approximate the field unknowns. The shape function has not the Kronecker Delta properties for the trial-function-interpolation, and a direct interpolation method is adopted to impose essential boundary conditions. The MLPG method does not involve any domain and singular integrals to generate the global effective stiffness matrix if body force is ignored; it only involves a regular boundary integral. The material properties are smooth functions of spatial coordinates and two interaction integrals[2,3] are… More >

    VB Classif 1.0 a Novel Tool to Classify the Epidemiological Data of Vector Borne Diseases

    U.Suryanarayana Murty1, V.Sreehari Rao2
    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.5, No.2, pp. 121-128, 2008, DOI:10.3970/icces.2008.005.121
    Abstract Artificial intelligence has opened a new window of opportunity and has definitely a long way to look ahead in\nobreakspace {}area of data analysis. The enormity of magnitude of data and its complex nature often perplex the epidemiologists. This is especially true in case of vector borne diseases where a timely and precise understanding of disease during decision making process comes handy for curbing the diseases in event of an outbreak or epidemic. Often the public health officials feel the need of correct identification of true positive cases. A tool that classify disease according to presence or absence of a disease… More >

    ABSTRACT

    Dynamic Behaviour of High Strength Concrete Elements and Building Structures

    Roberta Apostolska1, Golubka Necevska-Cvetanovska2
    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.5, No.2, pp. 129-136, 2008, DOI:10.3970/icces.2008.005.129
    Abstract The IZIIS' contribution to development of high quality materials has been seen in realization of several scientific-research projects in the field of high strength concrete in the period from 1992 to 2006. Within the frames of these projects complex laboratory-experimental-analytical investigations have been performed to contribute to definition of the methodology for obtaining high stength concrete exclusively from domestic resources, to investigate joint behaviour of high strength materials and elements in nonlinear range as well as to define dynamic behaviour high strength concrete buildings exposed to seismic actions. The selected results from these investigations are presented in the paper. More >
