    Hybrid Strategy of Partitioned and Monolithic Methods for Solving Strongly Coupled Analysis of Inverse and Direct Piezoelectric and Circuit Coupling

    Daisuke Ishihara*, Syunnosuke Nozaki, Tomoya Niho, Naoto Takayama

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.140, No.2, pp. 1371-1386, 2024, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2024.049694

    Abstract The inverse and direct piezoelectric and circuit coupling are widely observed in advanced electro-mechanical systems such as piezoelectric energy harvesters. Existing strongly coupled analysis methods based on direct numerical modeling for this phenomenon can be classified into partitioned or monolithic formulations. Each formulation has its advantages and disadvantages, and the choice depends on the characteristics of each coupled problem. This study proposes a new option: a coupled analysis strategy that combines the best features of the existing formulations, namely, the hybrid partitioned-monolithic method. The analysis of inverse piezoelectricity and the monolithic analysis of direct piezoelectric More >

    Direct Pointwise Comparison of FE Predictions to StereoDIC Measurements: Developments and Validation Using Double Edge-Notched Tensile Specimen

    Troy Myers1, Michael A. Sutton1,*, Hubert Schreier2, Alistair Tofts2, Sreehari Rajan Kattil1

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.140, No.2, pp. 1263-1298, 2024, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2024.048743

    Abstract To compare finite element analysis (FEA) predictions and stereovision digital image correlation (StereoDIC) strain measurements at the same spatial positions throughout a region of interest, a field comparison procedure is developed. The procedure includes (a) conversion of the finite element data into a triangular mesh, (b) selection of a common coordinate system, (c) determination of the rigid body transformation to place both measurements and FEA data in the same system and (d) interpolation of the FEA nodal information to the same spatial locations as the StereoDIC measurements using barycentric coordinates. For an aluminum Al-6061 double edge More >

    Research on Total Electric Field Prediction Method of Ultra-High Voltage Direct Current Transmission Line Based on Stacking Algorithm

    Yinkong Wei1,2, Mucong Wu1,2,*, Wei Wei3, Paulo R. F. Rocha4, Ziyi Cheng1,2, Weifang Yao5

    Computer Systems Science and Engineering, Vol.48, No.3, pp. 723-738, 2024, DOI:10.32604/csse.2023.036062

    Abstract Ultra-high voltage (UHV) transmission lines are an important part of China’s power grid and are often surrounded by a complex electromagnetic environment. The ground total electric field is considered a main electromagnetic environment indicator of UHV transmission lines and is currently employed for reliable long-term operation of the power grid. Yet, the accurate prediction of the ground total electric field remains a technical challenge. In this work, we collected the total electric field data from the Ningdong-Zhejiang ±800 kV UHVDC transmission project, as of the Ling Shao line, and perform an outlier analysis of the More >

    Towards Blockchain-Based Secure BGP Routing, Challenges and Future Research Directions

    Qiong Yang1, Li Ma1,2,*, Shanshan Tu1, Sami Ullah3, Muhammad Waqas4,5, Hisham Alasmary6

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.79, No.2, pp. 2035-2062, 2024, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2024.049970

    Abstract Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) is a standard inter-domain routing protocol for the Internet that conveys network layer reachability information and establishes routes to different destinations. The BGP protocol exhibits security design defects, such as an unconditional trust mechanism and the default acceptance of BGP route announcements from peers by BGP neighboring nodes, easily triggering prefix hijacking, path forgery, route leakage, and other BGP security threats. Meanwhile, the traditional BGP security mechanism, relying on a public key infrastructure, faces issues like a single point of failure and a single point of trust. The decentralization, anti-tampering, and More >

    Nonlinear Registration of Brain Magnetic Resonance Images with Cross Constraints of Intensity and Structure

    Han Zhou1,2, Hongtao Xu1,2, Xinyue Chang1,2, Wei Zhang1,2, Heng Dong1,2,*

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.79, No.2, pp. 2295-2313, 2024, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2024.047754

    Abstract Many deep learning-based registration methods rely on a single-stream encoder-decoder network for computing deformation fields between 3D volumes. However, these methods often lack constraint information and overlook semantic consistency, limiting their performance. To address these issues, we present a novel approach for medical image registration called the Dual-VoxelMorph, featuring a dual-channel cross-constraint network. This innovative network utilizes both intensity and segmentation images, which share identical semantic information and feature representations. Two encoder-decoder structures calculate deformation fields for intensity and segmentation images, as generated by the dual-channel cross-constraint network. This design facilitates bidirectional communication between grayscale More >

    The Effects of the Geometry of a Current Collector with an Equal Open Ratio on Output Power of a Direct Methanol Fuel Cell

    Yingli Zhu1,*, Jiachi Xie1, Mingwei Zhu1, Jun Zhang2, Miaomiao Li3

    Energy Engineering, Vol.121, No.5, pp. 1161-1172, 2024, DOI:10.32604/ee.2024.041205

    Abstract The open ratio of a current collector has a great impact on direct methanol fuel cell (DMFC) performance. Although a number of studies have investigated the influence of the open ratio of DMFC current collectors, far too little attention has been given to how geometry (including the shape and feature size of the flow field) affects a current collector with an equal open ratio. In this paper, perforated and parallel current collectors with an equal open ratio of 50% and different feature sizes are designed, and the corresponding experimental results are shown to explain the… More >

    Perpendicular-Cutdepth: Perpendicular Direction Depth Cutting Data Augmentation Method

    Le Zou1, Linsong Hu1, Yifan Wang1, Zhize Wu2, Xiaofeng Wang1,*

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.79, No.1, pp. 927-941, 2024, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2024.048889

    Abstract Depth estimation is an important task in computer vision. Collecting data at scale for monocular depth estimation is challenging, as this task requires simultaneously capturing RGB images and depth information. Therefore, data augmentation is crucial for this task. Existing data augmentation methods often employ pixel-wise transformations, which may inadvertently disrupt edge features. In this paper, we propose a data augmentation method for monocular depth estimation, which we refer to as the Perpendicular-Cutdepth method. This method involves cutting real-world depth maps along perpendicular directions and pasting them onto input images, thereby diversifying the data without compromising… More >

    Large-Scale Multi-Objective Optimization Algorithm Based on Weighted Overlapping Grouping of Decision Variables

    Liang Chen1, Jingbo Zhang1, Linjie Wu1, Xingjuan Cai1,2,*, Yubin Xu1

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.140, No.1, pp. 363-383, 2024, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2024.049044

    Abstract The large-scale multi-objective optimization algorithm (LSMOA), based on the grouping of decision variables, is an advanced method for handling high-dimensional decision variables. However, in practical problems, the interaction among decision variables is intricate, leading to large group sizes and suboptimal optimization effects; hence a large-scale multi-objective optimization algorithm based on weighted overlapping grouping of decision variables (MOEAWOD) is proposed in this paper. Initially, the decision variables are perturbed and categorized into convergence and diversity variables; subsequently, the convergence variables are subdivided into groups based on the interactions among different decision variables. If the size of… More >

    Journal of Polymer Materials, Vol.40, No.3-4, pp. 125-139, 2023, DOI:10.32381/JPM.2023.40.3-4.1

    Abstract A one dimensional isothermal model is proposed by modelling the kinetics of methanol transport at anode flow channel (AFC), membrane and cathode catalyst layer of direct methanol fuel cell (DMFC). Analytical model is proposed to predict methanol cross-over rate through the electrolyte membrane and cell performance. The model presented in this paper considered methanol diffusion and electrochemical oxidation at the anode and cathode channels. The analytical solution of the proposed model was simulated in a MATLAB environment to obtain the polarization curve and leakage current.
