    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.27, No.1&2, pp. 1-24, 2008, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2008.027.001

    Abstract In this paper, application of high performance computing to climate modelling with specific reference to global General Circulation Models (GCM) is discussed. Methods of parallelization of global atmospheric models based on their numerical schemes is presented. It is seen that there is an interesting co-evolution of computer architecture and the type of numerical schemes used in general circulation models. A detailed survey of the Indian HPC scenario for meteorological computing is presented. Innovative and pioneering aspects of Indian efforts are highlighted. More >

    A New Quasi-Unsymmetric Sparse Linear Systems Solver for Meshless Local Petrov-Galerkin Method (MLPG)

    Weiran Yuan1, Pu Chen1,2, Kaishin Liu1,3

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.17, No.2, pp. 115-134, 2007, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2007.017.115

    Abstract In this paper we propose a direct solution method for the quasi-unsymmetric sparse matrix (QUSM) arising in the Meshless Local Petrov-Galerkin method (MLPG). QUSM, which is conventionally treated as a general unsymmetric matrix, is unsymmetric in its numerical values, but nearly symmetric in its nonzero distribution of upper and lower triangular portions. MLPG employs trial and test functions in different functional spaces in the local domain weak form of governing equations. Consequently the stiffness matrix of the resultant linear system is a QUSM. The new solver for QUSM conducts a two-level unrolling technique for LDU factorization More >

    Performance Computations and Design Criterion of Airfoils in Unsteady Viscous Flows

    Rosario M. A. Marretta1, Giovanni Lombardi2, Roberto Antinoro1

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.4, No.1, pp. 73-84, 2003, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2003.004.073

    Abstract An approach based on Lighthill's transpiration velocity is explored and proposed for a new design criterion for airfoils in unsteady and viscous flows. This criterion confines its methodologies to the close proximity of the laminar and turbulent boundary layer and it shows good efficiency in predicting and calculating the wake evolution regions in a wide range of operating unsteady parameters. Also, the criterion is capable of predicting low Mach number, attached flow-fields as accurately as the full Navier-Stokes solutions when the massive flow separation is avoided. The agreement of the present results with those empirically More >

    Numerical Simulation and Optimization of a Mid-Temperature Heat Pipe Exchanger

    Jun Du1,*, Xin Wu1, Ruonan Li1, Ranran Cheng1

    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.15, No.1, pp. 77-87, 2019, DOI:10.32604/fdmp.2019.05949

    Abstract In this paper, we take the mid-temperature gravity heat pipe exchanger as the research object, simulate the fluid flow field, temperature field and the working state of heat pipe in the heat exchanger by Fluent software. The effects of different operating parameters and fin parameters on the heat transfer performance of heat exchangers are studied. The results show that the heat transfer performance of the mid-temperature gravity heat pipe exchanger is the best when the fin spacing is between 5 mm and 6 mm, the height of the heat pipe is between 12 mm and More >

    Recent Developments About IPMCs (Ionic Polymer-Metal) Composites: A Review of Performances for Different Conditions

    Wenqi Zhang1, Yunqing Gu1,*, Jiegang Mou1

    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.14, No.4, pp. 243-258, 2018, DOI:10.32604/fdmp.2018.03836

    Abstract It is of great significance for the production of micro robots and new sensors to develop actuators with “muscle” properties. As a kind of electroactive polymers (EAPs), IPMC (ionic polymer-metal composite) can exhibit significant deformation for very low electrical excitation. These composites, known as the “artificial muscle”, can be regarded as intelligent bionic materials. With regard to the mechanism of deformation of IPMC, a large number of experimental studies have proved that the variety of electrodes and water contents relating to IPMC have great influence on its electro-mechanical and mechanical properties. Recent research results about… More >

    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.10, No.4, pp. 443-464, 2014, DOI:10.3970/fdmp.2014.010.443

    Abstract Natural Convection in a vertical channel with internal objects is encountered in several technological applications, among them particular interest of heat dissipation from electronic circuits, refrigerators, heat exchangers, nuclear reactors fuel elements, dry cooling towers, home ventilation, etc. This numerical study deals with the study of natural convection in a vertical convergent channel with a circular block.

    Fuel Cell Performance Augmentation: Gas Flow Channel Design for Fuel Optimization

    A. B. Mahmud Hasan1,2, S.M. Guo1, M.A. Wahab1

    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.5, No.4, pp. 399-410, 2009, DOI:10.3970/fdmp.2009.005.399

    Abstract The effects of gas flow channel design were studied experimentally for increasing fuel cell performance and fuel optimization. Three types of gas flow channels (serpentine, straight and interdigitated) were designed on the basis of water flooding due to electrochemical reactions, electro-osmotic drag, etc. Experimental results indicate that the best cell performance can be obtained by arranging interdigitated gas flow channel at the anode side and serpentine gas flow channel at the cathode side. Detailed analysis on complex two phase water generation and electrochemical phenomena behind those results were analyzed in this work to find out More >

    Effects of Non-Newtonian Ferrofluids on the Performance Characteristics of Long Journal Bearings

    J.R. Lin1, P.J. Li2, T.C. Hung3

    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.9, No.4, pp. 419-434, 2013, DOI:10.3970/fdmp.2013.009.419

    Abstract On the basis of the Shliomis ferrofluid model (1972) together with the micro-continuum theory of Stokes (1966), the influences of non-Newtonian ferrofluids on the steady-state performance of long journal bearings have been investigated in the present paper. Analytical solutions for bearing performances are obtained from the non-Newtonian ferrofluid Reynolds-type equation. Comparing with the Newtonian non-ferrofluid case, the effects of non-Newtonian ferrofluids with applied magnetic fields provide an increase in the zero pressure-gradient angle and the load capacity, and a decrease in the friction parameter, especially for a larger non-Newtonian couple stress parameter and magnetic Langevin’s More >

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.44, No.1, pp. 59-72, 2014, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2014.044.059

    Abstract This paper investigates the flexural performance of a sandwich panel made up of ultra high strength concrete (UHSC) as top and bottom skin and cold formed steel as sandwich. A novel sandwich panel has been designed such a way that bottom skin of UHSC is of precast in nature and top skin of UHSC is cast-insitu and cold formed steel (profiled sheet) as sandwich. The connection between top skin of UHSC and cold formed steel is made with self tapping screws. Flexural performance of UHSC sandwich panel has been tested under flexural loading and it… More >

    Joint Spectrum Partition and Performance Analysis of Full-Duplex D2D Communications in Multi-Tier Wireless Networks

    Yueping Wang1,*, Xuan Zhang2, Yixuan Zhang3

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.61, No.1, pp. 171-184, 2019, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2019.06204

    Abstract Full-duplex (FD) has been recognized as a promising technology for future 5G networks to improve the spectrum efficiency. However, the biggest practical impediments of realizing full-duplex communications are the presence of self-interference, especially in complex cellular networks. With the current development of self-interference cancellation techniques, full-duplex has been considered to be more suitable for device-to-device (D2D) and small cell communications which have small transmission range and low transmit power. In this paper, we consider the full-duplex D2D communications in multi-tier wireless networks and present an analytical model which jointly considers mode selection, resource allocation, and More >
