    Meter-Scale Thin-Walled Structure with Lattice Infill for Fuel Tank Supporting Component of Satellite: Multiscale Design and Experimental Verification

    Xiaoyu Zhang1,2, Huizhong Zeng2, Shaohui Zhang2, Yan Zhang3,*, Mi Xiao4, Liping Liu2, Hao Zhou2,*, Hongyou Chai2, Liang Gao4

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.138, No.1, pp. 201-220, 2024, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2023.029389

    Abstract Lightweight thin-walled structures with lattice infill are widely desired in satellite for their high stiffness-to-weight ratio and superior buckling strength resulting from the sandwich effect. Such structures can be fabricated by metallic additive manufacturing technique, such as selective laser melting (SLM). However, the maximum dimensions of actual structures are usually in a sub-meter scale, which results in restrictions on their appliance in aerospace and other fields. In this work, a meter-scale thin-walled structure with lattice infill is designed for the fuel tank supporting component of the satellite by integrating a self-supporting lattice into the thickness More >

    Geometrically Nonlinear Flutter Analysis Based on CFD/CSD Methods and Wind Tunnel Experimental Verification

    Changrong Zhang, Hongtao Guo, Li Yu, Binbin Lv, Hongya Xia*

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.136, No.2, pp. 1743-1758, 2023, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2023.025528

    Abstract This study presents a high-speed geometrically nonlinear flutter analysis calculation method based on the high-precision computational fluid dynamics/computational structural dynamics methods. In the proposed method, the aerodynamic simulation was conducted based on computational fluid dynamics, and the structural model was established using the nonlinear finite element model and tangential stiffness matrix. First, the equilibrium position was obtained using the nonlinear static aeroelastic iteration. Second, the structural modal under a steady aerodynamic load was extracted. Finally, the generalized displacement time curve was obtained by coupling the unsteady aerodynamics and linearized structure motion equations. Moreover, if the… More > Graphic Abstract

    Essam Hendawi1,*, Sattam Al Otaibi1, Sherif Zaid2,3,4, Ayman Hoballah1, Salah K. ElSayed1, Nagy I. Elkalashy1, Yasser Ahmed1

    Computer Systems Science and Engineering, Vol.43, No.3, pp. 1009-1025, 2022, DOI:10.32604/csse.2022.022927

    Abstract With the increasing development of EVs, the energy demand from the conventional utility grid increases in proportion. On the other hand, photovoltaic (PV) energy sources can overcome several problems when charging EVs from the utility grid especially in remote areas. This paper presents an effective photovoltaic stand-alone charging station for EV applications. The proposed charging station incorporates PV array, a lithium-ion battery representing the EV battery, and a lead-acid battery representing the energy storage system (ESS). A bidirectional DC-DC converter is employed for charging/discharging the ESS and a unidirectional DC-DC converter is utilized for charging… More >

    Numerical and Experimental Study of a Tornado Mixer

    Yibao Wang, Dongsheng Wang, Yudan Xue, Dailong Shi*, Xiaoli Zhang, Yang Chai, Bang An

    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.17, No.6, pp. 1113-1127, 2021, DOI:10.32604/fdmp.2021.017591

    Abstract A new design of a selective catalytic reduction (SCR) mixer called tornado was developed for a heavy-duty diesel engine to solve the urea deposition problem. A combination of CFD simulation and experimental studies was used to comprehensively evaluate the performance of the tornado mixer. According to the numerical simulations, this mixer can improve the front surface flow uniformity of the SCR carrier by 6.67% and the NH3 distribution uniformity by 3.19% compared to a traditional mixer. Similarly, steady state SCR conversion efficiency test results have shown that the tornado mixer can increase the average SCR conversion More >

    Fracture behavior of plain concrete beams -- experimental verification of one parameter model

    B.K.Raghu Prasad1, Rabindra Kumar Saha1, A.R.Gopalakrishnan1

    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.14, No.3, pp. 65-84, 2010, DOI:10.3970/icces.2010.014.065

    Abstract Several different models have been proposed to characterize mode-I crack propagation in concrete. The fictitious crack model proposed by Hillerborg et al. and the blunt crack band theory developed by Bazant & Oh are particularly well suited for a finite element analysis. The two-parameter fracture model proposed by Jenq & Shah is found to be applicable only for beams with s/w=4, where s=span & w=depth of the beam. The general applicability of the model for other testing configurations is not published. In the present study an experimental verification of a one-parameter model based on fundamental… More >

    Identification of Elasto-Plastic Constitutive Parameters by Self-Optimizing Inverse Method: Experimental Verifications

    Shen Shang and Gun Jin Yun1,1

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.27, No.1, pp. 55-72, 2012, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2012.027.055

    Abstract In this paper, the Self-Optimizing Inverse Method (Self-OPTIM) has been experimentally verified by identifying constitutive parameters solely based on prescribed boundary loadings without full-field displacements. Recently the Self-OPTIM methodology was developed as a computational inverse analysis tool that can identify parameters of nonlinear material constitutive models. However, the methodology was demonstrated only by numerically simulated testing with full-field displacement fields and prescribed boundary loadings. The Self-OPTIM is capable of identifying parameters of the chosen class of material constitutive models through minimization of an implicit objective function defined as a function of full-field stress and strain… More >

    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.15, No.1, pp. 63-76, 2019, DOI:10.32604/fdmp.2019.04799

    Abstract The correct determination of thermal parameters, such as thermal conductivity and specific heat of soil during freezing, is the most important and basic problem for the construction of an appropriate freezing method. In this study, a calculation model of three stages of soil temperature was established. At the unfrozen and frozen stages, the specific temperatures of dry soil, water, and ice are known. According to the principle of superposition, a calculation model of unfrozen and frozen soils can be established. Informed by a laboratory experiment, the latent heat of the adjacent zone was calculated for More >
