    Comparison Study and Forensic Analysis between Experiment and Coupled Dynamics Simulation for Submerged Floating Tunnel Segment with Free Ends under Wave Excitations

    Woo Chul Chung1, Chungkuk Jin2,*, MooHyun Kim3, Ju-young Hwang4

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.137, No.1, pp. 155-174, 2023, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2023.026754

    Abstract This paper presents dynamic-behavior comparisons and related forensic analyses of a submerged floating tunnel (SFT) between numerical simulation and physical experiment under regular and irregular waves. The experiments are conducted in the 3D wave tank with 1:33.3 scale, and the corresponding coupled time-domain simulation tool is devised for comparison. The entire SFT system consists of a long concrete tunnel and 12 tubular aluminum mooring lines. Two numerical simulation models, the Cummins equation with 3D potential theory including second-order wave-body interaction effects and the much simpler Morison-equation-based formula with the lumped-mass-based line model, are designed and compared. Forensic analyses for mooring-line… More >

    Research on the Dynamic Response of Submerged Floating Tunnels to Wave Currents and Traffic Load

    Bolin Jiang1,*, Shanshan Wu2, Min Ji1, Bo Liang3

    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.19, No.1, pp. 159-173, 2023, DOI:10.32604/fdmp.2022.020730

    Abstract Submerged floating tunnel (SFTs) are typically subjected to complex external environmental and internal loads such as wave currents and traffic load. In this study, this problem is investigated through a finite element method able to account for fluid-structure interaction. The obtained results show that increasing the number of vehicles per unit length enhances the transverse vibrational displacements of the SFT cross sections. Under ultimate traffic load condition, one-way and two-way syntropic distributions can promote the dynamic responses of SFTs whereas two-way reverse distributions have the opposite effect. More >

    Dynamic-Response Analysis of the Branch System of a Utility Tunnel Subjected to Near-Fault and Far-Field Ground Motions in Different Input Mechanisms

    Yuhang Jin1,2, Endong Guo1,2,*, Houli Wu1,2, peilei Yan1,2

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.130, No.1, pp. 167-186, 2022, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2022.018113

    Abstract There are few studies on the dynamic-response mechanism of near-fault and far-field ground motions for large underground structures, especially for the branch joint of a utility tunnel (UT) and its internal pipeline. Based on the theory of a 3D viscous-spring artificial boundary, this paper deduced the equivalent nodal force when a P wave and an SV wave were vertically incident at the same time and transformed the ground motion into an equivalent nodal force using a self-developed MATLAB program, which was applied to an ABAQUS finite element model. Based on near-fault and far-field ground motions obtained from the NGA-WEST2 database,… More >

    Arshia Arif1, M. Jawad Khan1,2,*, Kashif Javed1, Hasan Sajid1,2, Saddaf Rubab1, Noman Naseer3, Talha Irfan Khan4

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.70, No.1, pp. 535-555, 2022, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2022.018318

    Abstract For BCI systems, it is important to have an accurate and less complex architecture to control a device with enhanced accuracy. In this paper, a novel methodology for more accurate detection of the hemodynamic response has been developed using a multimodal brain-computer interface (BCI). An integrated classifier has been developed for achieving better classification accuracy using two modalities. An integrated EEG-fNIRS-based vector-phase analysis (VPA) has been conducted. An open-source dataset collected at the Technische Universität Berlin, including simultaneous electroencephalography (EEG) and functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) signals of 26 healthy participants during n-back tests, has been used for this research.

    Dynamic Characteristics Analysis of Ice-Adhesion Transmission Tower-Line System under Effect of Wind-Induced Ice Shedding

    Yongping Yu1, Lihui Chen1, Juanjuan Wang1, Guoji Liu2,*

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.125, No.2, pp. 647-670, 2020, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2020.011067

    Abstract The tower line system will be in an unsafe status due to uniform or uneven fall of ice coating which is attached to the surface of tower and lines. The fall of ice could be caused by wind action or thermal force. In order to study the dynamic characteristics of the self-failure of the transmission line under the action of dynamic wind load, a finite element model of the two-span transmission tower line system was established. The birth and death element methods are used to simulate the icing and shedding of the line. Tensile failure strength is the shedding criterion… More >

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.124, No.2, pp. 433-457, 2020, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2020.09268

    Abstract The monopile foundation is the main form of offshore wind turbine foundation, and its surrounding scouring pit will reduce the constraints of the soil on the piles, which makes wind turbine foundation instability a key issue affecting the structural safety of offshore wind turbines. In previous studies, the rotating rotor and control system are neglected when studying the influence of scour on the offshore wind turbine structure. In this paper, the numerical model of the blade-tower-monopile integrated offshore wind turbine is established, and the influence of scour on the dynamic characteristics of wind turbine is obtained considering parameters, such as… More >

    Zishen Li1, Xiangling Gao1, *, Zicheng Tang2

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.123, No.3, pp. 1105-1129, 2020, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2020.09047

    Abstract The numerical simulation for a new type of precast concrete barrier for viaducts is carried out systematically. To obtain an accurate representation of the damage state of the concrete barrier under the impact of a vehicle, a stochastic damage-plasticity model of the concrete is adopted in the finite element model. Meanwhile, a simplified mathematical model of the impact between vehicles and the concrete barrier was established and the input energy was converted to the impact load to facilitate the investigation of the safety performance of the concrete barriers. On this basis, a refined finite element (FE) model of a precast… More >

    Abstract In order to study the dynamic characteristics of a simply supported double-beam system under a moving mass, the system of fourth-order dynamic partial differential equations of a simply supported double-beam system was transformed into a system of second-order dynamic ordinary differential equations relative to time coordinates by performing the finite sin-Fourier Transform relative to space coordinates. And the analytical solution of the dynamic response of the simply supported double-beam system under a moving mass was obtained by solving the system of dynamic ordinary differential equations. The analytical method and ANSYS numerical method were used to calculate the dynamic responses of… More >

    G.D. Hatzigeorgiou1, D.E. Beskos1

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.3, No.6, pp. 791-802, 2002, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2002.003.791

    Abstract This paper presents a general boundary element methodology for the dynamic analysis of three-dimensional inelastic solids and structures. Inelasticity is simulated with the aid of the continuum damage theory. The elastostatic fundamental solution is employed in the integral formulation of the problem and this creates in addition to the surface integrals, volume integrals due to inertia and inelasticity. Thus an interior discretization in addition to the usual surface discretization is necessary. Isoparametric linear quadrilateral elements are used for the surface discretization and isoparametric linear hexahedra for the interior discretization. Advanced numerical integration techniques for singular and nearly singular integrals are… More >
