    Emerging Trends in Soft Computing Techniques for Metamaterial Design and Optimization

    Balamati Choudhury11, Sanjana Bisoyi1, R M Jha1

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.31, No.3, pp. 201-228, 2012, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2012.031.201

    Abstract Soft computing methods play an important role in the design and optimization in diverse engineering disciplines including those in the electromagnetic applications. The aim of these soft computing methods is to tolerate imprecision, uncertainties, and approximations to achieve a quick solution, which is both robust and economically viable. Soft computing methods such as genetic algorithm, neural network and fuzzy logic have been widely used by researchers for microwave design since the last decade. The metamaterial multilayer concept in conjunction with transformation optics leads to exciting applications in the microwave regime with such examples as invisible More >

    Development of 3D Trefftz Voronoi Cells with Ellipsoidal Voids &/or Elastic/Rigid Inclusions for Micromechanical Modeling of Heterogeneous Materials

    Leiting Dong1, Satya N. Atluri11

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.30, No.1, pp. 39-82, 2012, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2012.030.039

    Abstract In this paper, as an extension to the authors's work in [Dong and Atluri (2011a,b, 2012a,b,c)], three-dimensional Trefftz Voronoi Cells (TVCs) with ellipsoidal voids/inclusions are developed for micromechanical modeling of heterogeneous materials. Several types of TVCs are developed, depending on the types of heterogeneity in each Voronoi Cell(VC). Each TVC can include alternatively an ellipsoidal void, an ellipsoidal elastic inclusion, or an ellipsoidal rigid inclusion. In all of these cases, an inter-VC compatible displacement field is assumed at each surface of the polyhedral VC, with Barycentric coordinates as nodal shape functions. The Trefftz trial displacement… More >

    A PSO based Energy Efficient Coverage Control Algorithm for Wireless Sensor Networks

    Jin Wang1,2, Chunwei Ju2, Yu Gao2, Arun Kumar Sangaiah3, Gwang-jun Kim4,*

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.56, No.3, pp. 433-446, 2018, DOI: 10.3970/cmc.2018.04132

    Abstract Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) are large-scale and high-density networks that typically have coverage area overlap. In addition, a random deployment of sensor nodes cannot fully guarantee coverage of the sensing area, which leads to coverage holes in WSNs. Thus, coverage control plays an important role in WSNs. To alleviate unnecessary energy wastage and improve network performance, we consider both energy efficiency and coverage rate for WSNs. In this paper, we present a novel coverage control algorithm based on Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO). Firstly, the sensor nodes are randomly deployed in a target area and remain More >

    Improved Particle Swarm Optimization for Selection of Shield Tunneling Parameter Values

    Gongyu Hou1, Zhedong Xu1,*, Xin Liu1, Cong Jin1

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.118, No.2, pp. 317-337, 2019, DOI:10.31614/cmes.2019.04693

    Abstract This article proposes an exponential adjustment inertia weight immune particle swarm optimization (EAIW-IPSO) to enhance the accuracy and reliability regarding the selection of shield tunneling parameter values. According to the iteration changes and the range of inertia weight in particle swarm optimization algorithm (PSO), the inertia weight is adjusted by the form of exponential function. Meanwhile, the self-regulation mechanism of the immune system is combined with the PSO. 12 benchmark functions and the realistic cases of shield tunneling parameter value selection are utilized to demonstrate the feasibility and accuracy of the proposed EAIW-IPSO algorithm.

    Composite Simpson’s Rule for Computing Supersingular Integral on Circle

    Jin Li1,2, Hongxing Ru1, Dehao Yu3,4

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.97, No.6, pp. 463-482, 2014, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2014.097.463

    Abstract The computation with Simpson’s rule for the supersingular integrals on circle is discussed. When the singular point coincides with some priori known point, the convergence rate of the Simpson rule is higher than the globally one which is considered as the superconvergence phenomenon. Then the error functional of density function is derived and the superconvergence phenomenon of composite Simpson rule occurs at certain local coordinate of each subinterval. Based on the error functional, a modify quadrature is presented. At last, numerical examples are provided to validate the theoretical analysis and show the efficiency of the More >

    A set-based method for structural eigenvalue analysis using Kriging model and PSO algorithm

    Zichun Yang1,2,3, Wencai Sun2

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.92, No.2, pp. 193-212, 2013, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2013.092.193

    Abstract The set-based structural eigenvalue problem is defined, by expressing the uncertainties of the structural parameters in terms of various convex sets. A new method based on Kriging model and Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) is proposed for solving this problem. The introduction of the Kriging model into this approach can effectively reduce the computational burden especially for largescale structures. The solutions of the non-linear and non-monotonic problems are more accurate than those obtained by other methods in the literature with the PSO algorithm. The experimental points for Kriging model are sampled according to Latin hypercube sampling More >

    An Interval Optimization Method Considering the Dependence between Uncertain Parameters

    C. Jiang1,2, Q.F. Zhang1, X. Han1, D. Li3, J. Liu1

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.74, No.1, pp. 65-82, 2011, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2011.074.065

    Abstract In this paper, an interval optimization method is developed to deal with a class of problems that there exists dependence between the interval parameters. An ellipsoidal convex model is used to model the uncertainty domain, in which the parameter dependence can be well reflected through the shape of a multi-dimensional ellipsoid. Based on an order relation and a reliability-based possibility degree of interval, the uncertain optimization can be transformed to a deterministic nesting optimization. An efficient algorithm is then constructed to solve the created nesting optimization, in which a sequence of approximate interval optimizations are More >

    H.K. Mebatsion1,2, P. Verboven1, P. T. Jancsók1, Q.T. Ho1, B.E. Verlinden3, B.M. Nicolaï1,3

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.29, No.3, pp. 137-150, 2008, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2008.029.137

    Abstract Transport processes of gas and moisture are among the most important physiological processes in plant tissue. Microscale transport models based on Navier-Stokes equations provide insight into such processes at the microscopic scale. Due to microscopic complexity, numerical solutions based on the finite element or finite volume methods are mandatory. Therefore, a 3D geometric model of the tissue is essential. In this article, a novel algorithm for geometric reconstruction of 2D slices of synchrotron tomographic images is presented. The boundaries of 2D cells on individual slices were digitized to establish a set of boundary coordinates and… More >

    Abstract The present authors carried out an experimental study with a special interest upon the dynamics of the fluid in the vicinity of the boundary line of three phases; solid-liquid-gas interface, which is so-called `contact line.' The moving droplet on the solid substrate is accompanied with the movement of the boundary line of three phases; solid-liquid-gas interface, which is so-called macroscopic 'contact line.' Existing studies have indicated there is a thin liquid film known as 'precursor film' ahead the contact line of the droplet. In the present study the precursor film was detected by applying conventional More >

    Balamati Choudhury1, Pavani Vijay Reddy1, Sanjana Bisoyi1, R. M. Jha1

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.37, No.3, pp. 135-146, 2013, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2013.037.135

    Abstract The terahertz region of the electromagnetic spectrum plays a vital role in biomedical imaging because of its sensitivity to vibrational modes of biomolecules. Advances in broadband terahertz imaging have been emerging in the field of biomedical spectroscopy. Biomedical imaging is used to distinguish between the infected (cancer) and the non-infected tissue, which requires broad band and highly efficient radar absorbing material (RAM) designs (to obtain high resolution image of the tissue). In this paper, a metamaterial broadband RAM design is proposed towards biomedical spectroscopy applications in the THz region. The particle swarm optimization (PSO) algorithm More >
