    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.7, No.1, pp. 1-6, 2008, DOI:10.3970/icces.2008.007.001
    Abstract Authors have used a numerical model of stationary helium TIG arc welding taking into account the iron, chromium and manganese vapors produced from the weld pool surface and have simulated the distribution of the metal vapors, plasma temperature, fluid flow velocity and the formation of the weld pool. The concentration of manganese vapor in arc plasma was much higher compared with the composition of manganese for stainless steel. More >

    ABSTRACT

    Computational Environment for the Multiscale, Multi-Physics Resin Transfer Molding Process

    B. J. Henz1, D. R. Shires2
    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.7, No.1, pp. 13-18, 2008, DOI:10.3970/icces.2008.007.013
    Abstract The capability to predict the residual stresses induced during the manufacturing process in composite components is necessary for the timely fielding of new combat systems. At the U.S. Army Research Laboratory we have developed a computational environment to model the resin flow, heat transfer, curing, and residual stresses in composite components manufactured with the resin transfer molding (RTM) process. This computational environment uses object-oriented programming methods to provide model coupling capabilities and access to high performance computing assets. In this paper we will provide details of the physical models, software, and the validation/verification procedure used to develop this RTM simulation… More >

    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.7, No.1, pp. 19-22, 2008, DOI:10.3970/icces.2008.007.019
    Abstract In this paper, the vibration response of the satellite equipment panel during the launch phase is predicted in consideration of the robustness. By using a simplified model consisted of a panel and an acoustic cavity, Monte Carlo simulation in which analytical parameters are changed at random in the conceivable range of variation is done. From the result, the acceleration power spectral density (PSD) of the satellite equipment panel is obtained. After statistical processing, the effect of variation on the vibration response is estimated and the proper design criteria of the equipment are defined. More >

    ABSTRACT

    A Linearly Constrained Least-Squares Problem in \\ Electronic Structure Computations

    Peng Ni1, Homer Walker1
    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.7, No.1, pp. 43-50, 2008, DOI:10.3970/icces.2008.007.043
    Abstract One of the fundamental problems in electronic structure calculations is to determine the electron density associated with the minimum total energy of a molecular or bulk system. The total energy minimization problem is often formulated as a nonlinear eigenvalue problem. The most widely used algorithm for solving this type of problem is the self-consistent field (SCF) iteration accelerated by Direct Inversion on the Iterative Subspace (SCF-DIIS), in which a linearly constrained least-squares problem is embedded. We will examine and compare the numerical stability of three different ways to solve this least-squares problem. More >

    New Evolutionary Method for Simultaneous Structural Strength and Dynamics Optimization

    A.Oba1, Y.Fujii2, M.Okuma3
    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.7, No.1, pp. 51-56, 2008, DOI:10.3970/icces.2008.007.051
    Abstract In this paper, the authors present a new evolutionary structural optimization method based on FE modeling using identical cubic elements for optimizing strength and dynamics characteristics of structures. The method is developed from the previous ones([1\hbox {}]-[3\hbox {}]), and carries out the size and topological shape optimization to satify the strength against external force and inertia force of itself and to control the natural frequencies of the structure. The method gives us the lightest structure satisfying the requirement about the strength and dynamic characteristics. The outline of the method is presented first, and a basic case study about a bridge… More >
