    M. Koyuncu1, F. Y. Ikikat1, G. C. Icoz2, B. Baranoglu3, A. Yazici2

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.84, No.1, pp. 13-26, 2012, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2012.084.013

    Abstract A parallel dual reciprocity boundary element method solution to thermoelasticity and thermoviscoelasticity problems is proposed. The DR-BEM formulation is given in Fourier Transform Space where the Time Space solutions are obtained through inverse Fourier Transform. The parallellization of the code is achieved through solving each frequency at a distinct computational node. The implemented parallel code is tested on 64-core IBM blade servers and it is seen that a linear speed-up is achieved. More >

    Analysis of Thermoelastic Waves in a Two-Dimensional Functionally Graded Materials Domain by the Meshless Local Petrov-Galerkin (MLPG) Method

    Ahmad Akbari R.1, Akbar Bagri2, Stéphane P. A. Bordas3,4, Timon Rabczuk5

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.65, No.1, pp. 27-74, 2010, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2010.065.027

    Abstract This contribution focuses on the simulation of two-dimensional elastic wave propagation in functionally graded solids and structures. Gradient volume fractions of the constituent materials are assumed to obey the power law function of position in only one direction and the effective mechanical properties of the material are determined by the Mori-Tanaka scheme. The investigations are carried out by extending a meshless method known as the Meshless Local Petrov-Galerkin (MLPG) method which is a truly meshless approach to thermo-elastic wave propagation. Simulations are carried out for rectangular domains under transient thermal loading. To investigate the effect of material composition on the… More >

    Two- and Three-Dimensional Transient Thermoelastic Analysis by the MLPG Method

    J. Sladek1, V. Sladek1, P. Solek2, C.L. Tan3, Ch. Zhang4

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.47, No.1, pp. 61-96, 2009, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2009.047.061

    Abstract The meshless local Petrov-Galerkin (MLPG) method for transient linear thermoelastic analysis is presented. Orthotropic material properties are considered here. In uncoupled thermoelasticity, the temperature field is not influenced by displacements. Therefore, in the first step, the heat conduction equation is solved for the temperature distribution in the domain. The equations of motion are then solved with the inertial term considered. A Heaviside step function as the test functions is applied in the weak-form to derive local integral equations for solving two- and three-dimensional problems. Local integral equations are written on small sub-domains with circular or spherical shapes. They surround nodal… More >

    A Pure Contour Formulation for the Meshless Local Boundary Integral Equation Method in Thermoelasticity

    J. Sladek1, V. Sladek1, S.N. Atluri2

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.2, No.4, pp. 423-434, 2001, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2001.002.423

    Abstract A new meshless method for solving stationary thermoelastic boundary value problems is proposed in the present paper. The moving least square (MLS) method is used for the approximation of physical quantities in the local boundary integral equations (LBIE). In stationary thermoelasticity, the temperature and displacement fields are uncoupled. In the first step, the temperature field, described by the Laplace equation, is analysed by the LBIE. Then, the mechanical quantities are obtained from the solution of the LBIEs, which are reduced to elastostatic ones with redefined body forces due to thermal loading. The domain integrals with temperature gradients are transformed to… More >

    Fracture Mechanics Analysis in 2-D Anisotropic Thermoelasticity Using BEM

    Y.C. Shiah1, C.L. Tan1

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.1, No.3, pp. 91-99, 2000, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2000.001.393

    Abstract In the direct formulation of the boundary element method (BEM), a volume integral arises in the resulting integral equation if thermal effects are present. The steps to transform this volume integral into boundary ones in an exact analytical manner are reviewed in this paper for two- dimensional anisotropic thermoelasticity. The general applicability of the BEM algorithm for fracture mechanics applications is demonstrated by three crack problems with slanted cracks. The numerical results of the stress intensity factors are presented and compared with those obtained using superposition. More >

    Reflection of PlaneWaves from Electro-magneto-thermoelastic Half-space with a Dual-Phase-Lag Model

    A. M. Abd-Alla1,2,3, Mohamed I. A. Othman1,4, S. M. Abo-Dahab1,5

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.51, No.2, pp. 63-79, 2016, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2016.051.063

    Abstract The aim of this paper is to study the reflection of plane harmonic waves from a semi-infinite elastic solid under the effect of magnetic field in a vacuum. The expressions for the reflection coefficients, which are the relations of the amplitudes of the reflected waves to the amplitude of the incident waves, are obtained. Similarly, the reflection coefficient ratio variations with the angle of incident under different conditions are shown graphically. Comparisons are made with the results predicted by the dual-phase-lag model and Lord-Shulman theory in the presence and absence of magnetic field. More >

    Investigation on a Two-dimensional Generalized Thermal Shock Problem with Temperature-dependent Properties

    Tianhu He1,2,3, Yongbin Ma2,3, Shuanhu Shi3

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.47, No.1, pp. 15-29, 2015, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2015.047.015

    Abstract The dynamic response of a two-dimensional generalized thermoelastic problem with temperature-dependent properties is investigated in the context of generalized thermoelasticity proposed by Lord and Shulman. The governing equations are formulated, and due to the nonlinearity and complexity of the governing equations resulted from the temperature-dependent properties, a numerical method, i.e., finite element method is adopted to solve such problem. By means of virtual displacement principle, the nonlinear finite element equations are derived. To demonstrate the solution process, a thermoelastic half-space subjected to a thermal shock on its bounding surface is considered in detail. The nonlinear finite element equations for this… More >

    The Influence of Gravitational Field on Generalized Thermoelasticity with Two-Temperature under Three-Phase-Lag Model

    Mohamed I. A. Othman1,2,3, W. M. Hasona2,4, Nehal T. Mansour2,5

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.45, No.3, pp. 203-220, 2015, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2015.045.203

    Abstract The problem of the generalized thermoelastic medium for three different theories under the effect of a gravitational field is investigated. The Lord- Shulman, Green-Naghdi III, three-phase-lag theories are discussed with twotemperature. The normal mode analysis is used to obtain the analytical expressions of the displacement components, force stress, thermodynamic temperature and conductive temperature. The numerical results are given and presented graphically, when the thermal force is applied. Comparisons are made with the results predicted by three-phase-lag model, Green-Naghdi III and Lord-Shulman theories in the presence and absence of gravity as well as two temperature. More >

    Localization in Time of Solutions for Thermoelastic Micropolar Materials with Voids

    Marin Marin1, Ravi P. Agarwal2, Mohamed Othman3

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.40, No.1, pp. 35-48, 2014, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2014.040.035

    Abstract In this study we want to decide whether the decay of the solutions of the mixed initial boundary value problem in the context of thermoelasticiy of micropolar bodies with voids is sufficiently fast to guarantee that they vanish after a finite time. In fact, we prove that the effect of the micropolar structure in combination with the thermal and porous dissipation can not determine the thermomechanical deformations vanish after a finite time.

    Thermo-Elastic Localization Relationships for Multi-Phase Composites

    Giacomo Landi1, Surya R. Kalidindi2

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.16, No.3, pp. 273-294, 2010, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2010.016.273

    Abstract In this paper, we present a computationally efficient multi-scale framework for predicting the local fields in the representative volume element of a multiphase material system subjected to thermo-mechanical loading conditions. This framework for localization relationships is a natural extension of our recent work on two-phase composites subjected to purely mechanical loading. In this novel approach, the localization relationships take on a simple structure expressed as a series sum, where each term in the series is a convolution product of local structure and the governing physics expressed in the form of influence coefficients. Another salient feature of this approach is its… More >
