    Primary and Secondary Flows on Unsteady MHD Free Convective Micropolar Fluid Flow Past an Inclined Plate in a Rotating System: a Finite Element Analysis

    M. D. Shamshuddin1, *, P. V. Satya Narayana2

    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.14, No.1, pp. 57-86, 2018, DOI:10.3970/fdmp.2018.014.057

    Abstract In the present paper, a numerical analysis is performed to study the primary and secondary flows of a micropolar fluid flow past an inclined plate with viscous dissipation and thermal radiation in a rotating frame. A uniform magnetic field of strength Bo is applied normal to the plane of the plate. The whole system rotates with uniform angular velocity about an axis normal to the plate. The governing partial differential equations are transformed into coupled nonlinear partial differential equations by using the appropriate dimensionless quantities. The resulting equations are then solved by the Galerkin finite More >

    L. Dammak, E. Hadj-Taïeb

    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.6, No.4, pp. 419-430, 2010, DOI:10.3970/fdmp.2010.006.419

    Abstract This paper presents a short and focused analysis of the pressure development inside the fluid film related to a journal bearing (i.e. the pressure distribution in the the gap between the shaft, generally referred to as the "journal", and the bearing). The related flow is considered to be isotherm, laminar, steady and incompressible. The lubricant is assumed to be an isoviscous fluid. The Reynolds equation governing the lubricant pressure is derived from the coupled continuity and momentum balance equations written in the framework of the Stokes theory. The non linear system given by coupled equations More >

    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.6, No.3, pp. 291-318, 2010, DOI:10.3970/fdmp.2010.006.291

    Abstract Results are presented of 3D numerical magneto-hydrodynamic (MHD) simulation of electromagnetic DC pump for both laminar and turbulent metal flow under an externally imposed strongly non-uniform magnetic field. Numerous MHD flow cases were simulated using finite element method and the results of five typical examples are summarized here, including one example of laminar brake flow, one example of turbulent brake flow and three examples of turbulent pumping conditions. These simulations of laminar and turbulent channel flow of liquid metal correctly represent the formation of an M shaped velocity profile and are in good agreement with… More >

    Numerical Simulation and Analysis of Flow in Resin Transfer Moulding Process

    A. Saad1,2, A. Echchelh1, M. Hattabi3, M. El Ganaoui4, F. Lahlou1

    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.8, No.3, pp. 277-294, 2012, DOI:10.3970/fdmp.2012.008.277

    Abstract A modified finite element/control volume (FE/CV) method is used to solve the resin flow problem. Full advantage is taken of some of the intrinsic peculiar characteristics of the method, in particular, of its capability of eliminating the need to remesh continuously the resin-filled domain at each time step. The model leads to the numerical prediction of temperature, pressure distribution and flow front position with great accuracy, together with a precise representation of the thermal (spatio-temporal) behaviour of the resin inside the mould. The validity of such approach is validated by comparison with available analytical results. More >

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.8, No.3, pp. 133-150, 2008, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2008.008.133

    Abstract This paper describes an approach to identify the mechanical properties i.e. fracture and yield strength of steels. The study involves the FE simulation of shear punch test for various miniature specimens thickness ranging from 0.20mm to 0.80mm for four different steels using ABAQUS code. The experimental method of the miniature shear punch test is used to determine the material response under quasi-static loading. The load vs. displacement curves obtained from the FE simulation miniature disk specimens are compared with the experimental data obtained and found in good agreement. The resulting data from the load vs.… More >

    Prediction of Springback in Straight Flanging using Finite Element Method

    S. K. Panthi1,2, N. Ramakrishnan2, K. K. Pathak2, J. S. Chouhan3

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.6, No.1, pp. 13-20, 2007, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2007.006.013

    Abstract One of the important features of flanging process is elastic recovery during unloading leading to springback. The elastic recovery is associated with various tool and material parameters. It is difficult to analytically predict the elastic recovery accurately owing to the complex material deformation behavior. In this investigation, a commercially available Finite Element software is used for elasto-plastic analysis of flanging process. The springback is studied varying geometrical, material and friction parameters. The results of the simulation are validated with a few published experimental results. More >

    FEM-analysis of nonclassical transmission conditions between elastic structures. Part 2: Stiff imperfect interface

    G. Mishuris1, A. Öchsner2, G. Kuhn3

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.4, No.3, pp. 137-152, 2006, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2006.004.137

    Abstract Nonclassical transmission conditions for dissimilar elastic structures with imperfect interfaces are investigated. The thin interface zone is assumed to be soft or stiff in comparison with the bonded materials and the transmission conditions for stiff interfaces are evaluated based on asymptotic analysis. The accuracy of the transmission conditions is clarified not only in terms of asymptotic estimate, but, which is especially important for users, also in values by accurate FEM calculations. The ranges of applicability of the conditions are discussed. More >

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.52, No.2, pp. 105-121, 2016, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2016.052.105

    Abstract The methods of numerical simulation and test are combined to analyze the impact behavior of glass fiber reinforced aluminum alloy laminate (GLARE). A new failure criteria is proposed to obtain the impact failure of GLARE, and combined with material progressive damage method by writing code of LS-DYNA. Low velocity impact test of GLARE is employed to validate the feasibility of the finite element model established. The simulation results have been shown that progressive damage finite element model established is reliable. Through the application of the finite element model established, the delamination of GLARE evolution progress More >

    B-Spline Wavelet on Interval Finite Element Method for Static and Vibration Analysis of Stiffened Flexible Thin Plate

    Xing Wei1,2, Wen Chen2, Bin Chen2,3, Bin Chen1,4, Bin Chen2, Bin Chen1

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.52, No.1, pp. 53-71, 2016, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2016.052.053

    Abstract A new wavelet finite element method (WFEM) is constructed in this paper and two elements for bending and free vibration problems of a stiffened plate are analyzed. By means of generalized potential energy function and virtual work principle, the formulations of the bending and free vibration problems of the stiffened plate are derived separately. Then, the scaling functions of the B-spline wavelet on the interval (BSWI) are introduced to discrete the solving field variables instead of conventional polynomial interpolation. Finally, the corresponding two problems can be resolved following the traditional finite element frame. There are More >

    A Numerical Study Comparing The Effect on Residual Stresses of Two Different Types of Projectiles During Shot Peening

    J. Solórzano-López1, F.A. García-Pastor2, Angélica Flores-Luna3

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.51, No.3, pp. 203-215, 2016, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2016.051.203

    Abstract Shot peening is a widely used technique to improve fatigue life in metallic alloys. This processing technique introduces a subsurface compressive residual stress field through a plastic deformation of the surface caused by the impact of a large number of high-speed projectiles. There are a number of parameters that affect the residual stress field depth and magnitude. The effects of the impact angle, shot speed and shot geometry are currently being researched. In particular, substituting spherical cast shots by cylindrical cut wire shots is an attractive option, especially in terms of cost. The effect of… More >
