    Hasna Akarni*, Hamza Mabchour, Laila El Aarabi, Soumia Mordane

    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.20, No.3, pp. 579-593, 2024, DOI:10.32604/fdmp.2023.043080

    Abstract In this study, we focus on the numerical modelling of the interaction between waves and submerged structures in the presence of a uniform flow current. Both the same and opposite senses of wave propagation are considered. The main objective is an understanding of the effect of the current and various geometrical parameters on the reflection coefficient. The wave used in the study is based on potential theory, and the submerged structures consist of two rectangular breakwaters positioned at a fixed distance from each other and attached to the bottom of a wave flume. The numerical modeling approach employed in this… More >

    High-Precision Isoparametric Hole, Ring, Tube, Disk, Sphere Boundary Element and Their Applications in Mechanics Analysis

    Yongtong Zheng1,* , Yijun Liu1, Xiaowei Gao1,2,3

    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.27, No.3, pp. 1-1, 2023, DOI:10.32604/icces.2023.09774

    Abstract Recently, a series of isoparametric boundary elements have been constructed to simulate the shape of holes, tubes, disks, rings and spheres based on the Lagrange interpolation formulation and the closure condition at two ends of an arc. These elements can simulate the models which contain the shapes mentioned above with less nodes and less elements than the conventional boundary elements. However, the basis of those elements, i.e., hole elements, have the poor accuracy when the number of nodes is less than 6. To improve these elements, two kinds of improvements are proposed in this study. The first one let more… More >

    A Subdivision-Based Combined Shape and Topology Optimization in Acoustics

    Chuang Lu1, Leilei Chen2,3, Jinling Luo4, Haibo Chen1,*

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.139, No.1, pp. 847-872, 2024, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2023.044446

    Abstract We propose a combined shape and topology optimization approach in this research for 3D acoustics by using the isogeometric boundary element method with subdivision surfaces. The existing structural optimization methods mainly contain shape and topology schemes, with the former changing the surface geometric profile of the structure and the latter changing the material distribution topology or hole topology of the structure. In the present acoustic performance optimization, the coordinates of the control points in the subdivision surfaces fine mesh are selected as the shape design parameters of the structure, the artificial density of the sound absorbing material covered on the… More >

    Enriched Constant Elements in the Boundary Element Method for Solving 2D Acoustic Problems at Higher Frequencies

    Zonglin Li1,2, Zhenyu Gao2, Yijun Liu2,*

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.138, No.3, pp. 2159-2175, 2024, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2023.030920

    Abstract The boundary element method (BEM) is a popular method for solving acoustic wave propagation problems, especially those in exterior domains, owing to its ease in handling radiation conditions at infinity. However, BEM models must meet the requirement of 6–10 elements per wavelength, using the conventional constant, linear, or quadratic elements. Therefore, a large storage size of memory and long solution time are often needed in solving higher-frequency problems. In this work, we propose two new types of enriched elements based on conventional constant boundary elements to improve the computational efficiency of the 2D acoustic BEM. The first one uses a… More > Graphic Abstract

    Broadband Electromagnetic Scattering Analysis with Isogeometric Boundary Element Method Accelerated by Frequency-Decoupling and Model Order Reduction Techniques

    Yujing Ma1, Zhongwang Wang2, Xiaohui Yuan1, Leilei Chen2,*

    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.27, No.2, pp. 1-2, 2023, DOI:10.32604/icces.2023.09662

    Abstract The paper presents a novel fast calculation method for broadband Electromagnetic Scattering analysis. In this work, the isogeometric boundary element method is used to solve Helmholtz equations for the electromagnetic scattering problems. The non-uniform rational B-splines are employed to construct structural geometries and discretize electric and magnetic field integral equations [1,2]. To avoid timeconsuming multi-frequency calculations, the series expansion method is used to decouple the frequencydependent terms from the integrand in the boundary element method [3,4]. The second-order Arnoldi (SOAR) method is applied to construct a reduced-order model that retains the essential structures and key properties of the original model… More >

    A Fast Direct Boundary Element Method for 3D Acoustic Problems Based on Hierarchical Matrices

    Ruoyan Li1,2, Yijun Liu1,*, Wenjing Ye2

    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.27, No.1, pp. 1-1, 2023, DOI:10.32604/icces.2023.09472

    Abstract The boundary element method (BEM) for acoustic problems is a numerical method based on solving the discretized boundary integral equation (BIE) corresponding to the Helmholtz equation. A fast direct BEM for 3D acoustic problems is proposed in this paper, which is more suitable for broadband acoustic simulation of complex structures, such as in the design and analysis of acoustic metamaterials. The main idea of the fast direct solver is based on the hierarchical off-diagonal low-rank (HODLR) matrix, randomized interpolative decomposition and fast matrix inversion formula. Several numerical examples in solving both interior and exterior acoustic problems are presented in this… More >

    Robust Shape Optimization of Sound Barriers Based on Isogeometric Boundary Element Method and Polynomial Chaos Expansion

    Xuhang Lin1, Haibo Chen1,*

    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.27, No.1, pp. 1-1, 2023, DOI:10.32604/icces.2023.09388

    Abstract As an important and useful tool for reducing noise, the sound barrier is of practical significance. The sound barrier has different noise reduction effects for different sizes, shapes and properties of the sound absorbing material. Liu et al. [1] have performed shape optimization of sound barriers by using isogeometric boundary element method and method of moving asymptotes (MMA). However, in engineering practice, it is difficult to determine some parameters accurately such as material properties, geometries, external loads. Therefore, it is necessary to consider these uncertainty conditions in order to ensure the rationality of the numerical calculation of engineering problems. In… More >

    Panel Acoustic Contribution Analysis in Automotive Acoustics Using Discontinuous Isogeometric Boundary Element Method

    Yi Sun1,2,*, Chihua Lu1,2, Zhien Liu1,2, Menglei Sun1, Hao Chen1

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.135, No.3, pp. 2307-2330, 2023, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2023.025313

    Abstract In automotive industries, panel acoustic contribution analysis (PACA) is used to investigate the contributions of the body panels to the acoustic pressure at a certain point of interest. Currently, PACA is implemented mostly by either experiment-based methods or traditional numerical methods. However, these schemes are effort-consuming and inefficient in solving engineering problems, thereby restraining the further development of PACA in automotive acoustics. In this work, we propose a PACA scheme using discontinuous isogeometric boundary element method (IGABEM) to build an easily implementable and efficient method to identify the relative acoustic contributions of each automotive body panel. Discontinuous IGABEM is more… More >

    Jintao Liu1, Juan Zhao1, Xiaowei Shen1,2,*

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.134, No.2, pp. 981-1003, 2023, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2022.021641

    Abstract In this work, an acoustic topology optimization method for structural surface design covered by porous materials is proposed. The analysis of acoustic problems is performed using the isogeometric boundary element method. Taking the element density of porous materials as the design variable, the volume of porous materials as the constraint, and the minimum sound pressure or maximum scattered sound power as the design goal, the topology optimization is carried out by solid isotropic material with penalization (SIMP) method. To get a limpid 0–1 distribution, a smoothing Heaviside-like function is proposed. To obtain the gradient value of the objective function, a… More >

    Isogeometric Boundary Element Method for Two-Dimensional Steady-State Non-Homogeneous Heat Conduction Problem

    Yongsong Li1, Xiaomeng Yin2, Yanming Xu1,*

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.132, No.2, pp. 471-488, 2022, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2022.020201

    Abstract The isogeometric boundary element technique (IGABEM) is presented in this study for steady-state inhomogeneous heat conduction analysis. The physical unknowns in the boundary integral formulations of the governing equations are discretized using non-uniform rational B-spline (NURBS) basis functions, which are utilized to build the geometry of the structures. To speed up the assessment of NURBS basis functions, the B´ezier extraction approach is used. To solve the extra domain integrals, we use a radial integration approach. The numerical examples show the potential of IGABEM for dimension reduction and smooth integration of CAD and numerical analysis. More >
