    Three Dimensional Coupling between Elastic and Thermal Fields in the Static Analysis of Multilayered Composite Shells

    Salvatore Brischetto*, Roberto Torre, Domenico Cesare

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.136, No.3, pp. 2551-2594, 2023, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2023.026312

    Abstract This new work aims to develop a full coupled thermomechanical method including both the temperature profile and displacements as primary unknowns of the model. This generic full coupled 3D exact shell model permits the thermal stress investigation of laminated isotropic, composite and sandwich structures. Cylindrical and spherical panels, cylinders and plates are analyzed in orthogonal mixed curved reference coordinates. The 3D equilibrium relations and the 3D Fourier heat conduction equation for spherical shells are coupled and they trivially can be simplified in those for plates and cylindrical panels. The exponential matrix methodology is used to find the solutions of a… More >

    A Novel Localized Meshless Method for Solving Transient Heat Conduction Problems in Complicated Domains

    Chengxin Zhang1, Chao Wang1, Shouhai Chen2,*, Fajie Wang1,*

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.135, No.3, pp. 2407-2424, 2023, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2023.024884

    Abstract This paper first attempts to solve the transient heat conduction problem by combining the recently proposed local knot method (LKM) with the dual reciprocity method (DRM). Firstly, the temporal derivative is discretized by a finite difference scheme, and thus the governing equation of transient heat transfer is transformed into a non-homogeneous modified Helmholtz equation. Secondly, the solution of the non-homogeneous modified Helmholtz equation is decomposed into a particular solution and a homogeneous solution. And then, the DRM and LKM are used to solve the particular solution of the non-homogeneous equation and the homogeneous solution of the modified Helmholtz equation, respectively.… More >

    Topology Optimization of Stiffener Layout Design for Box Type Load-Bearing Component under Thermo-Mechanical Coupling

    Zhaohui Yang1,2,*, Tianhua Xiong1, Fei Du1,*, Baotong Li3

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.135, No.2, pp. 1701-1718, 2023, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2023.022758

    Abstract The structure optimization design under thermo-mechanical coupling is a difficult problem in the topology optimization field. An adaptive growth algorithm has become a more effective approach for structural topology optimization. This paper proposed a topology optimization method by an adaptive growth algorithm for the stiffener layout design of box type load-bearing components under thermo-mechanical coupling. Based on the stiffness diffusion theory, both the load stiffness matrix and the heat conduction stiffness matrix of the stiffener are spread at the same time to make sure the stiffener grows freely and obtain an optimal stiffener layout design. Meanwhile, the objectives of optimization… More >

    The Improved Element-Free Galerkin Method for Anisotropic Steady-State Heat Conduction Problems

    Heng Cheng1, Zebin Xing1, Miaojuan Peng2,*

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.132, No.3, pp. 945-964, 2022, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2022.020755

    Abstract In this paper, we considered the improved element-free Galerkin (IEFG) method for solving 2D anisotropic steady-state heat conduction problems. The improved moving least-squares (IMLS) approximation is used to establish the trial function, and the penalty method is applied to enforce the boundary conditions, thus the final discretized equations of the IEFG method for anisotropic steady-state heat conduction problems can be obtained by combining with the corresponding Galerkin weak form. The influences of node distribution, weight functions, scale parameters and penalty factors on the computational accuracy of the IEFG method are analyzed respectively, and these numerical solutions show that less computational… More >

    Isogeometric Boundary Element Method for Two-Dimensional Steady-State Non-Homogeneous Heat Conduction Problem

    Yongsong Li1, Xiaomeng Yin2, Yanming Xu1,*

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.132, No.2, pp. 471-488, 2022, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2022.020201

    Abstract The isogeometric boundary element technique (IGABEM) is presented in this study for steady-state inhomogeneous heat conduction analysis. The physical unknowns in the boundary integral formulations of the governing equations are discretized using non-uniform rational B-spline (NURBS) basis functions, which are utilized to build the geometry of the structures. To speed up the assessment of NURBS basis functions, the B´ezier extraction approach is used. To solve the extra domain integrals, we use a radial integration approach. The numerical examples show the potential of IGABEM for dimension reduction and smooth integration of CAD and numerical analysis. More >

    A Novel Meshfree Analysis of Transient Heat Conduction Problems Using RRKPM

    Hongfen Gao1, Gaofeng Wei2,3,*

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.131, No.3, pp. 1793-1814, 2022, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2022.019687

    Abstract By introducing the radial basis functions (RBFs) into the reproducing kernel particle method (RKPM), the calculating accuracy and stability of the RKPM can be improved, and a novel meshfree method of the radial basis RKPM (meshfree RRKPM) is proposed. Meanwhile, the meshfree RRKPM is applied to transient heat conduction problems (THCP), and the corresponding equations of the meshfree RRKPM for the THCP are derived. The two-point time difference scheme is selected to discretize the time of the THCP. Finally, the numerical results illustrate the effectiveness of the meshfree RRKPM for the THCP. More >

    Subdivision Surface-Based Isogeometric Boundary Element Method for Steady Heat Conduction Problems with Variable Coefficient

    Xiuyun Chen1, Xiaomeng Yin2, Kunpeng Li3, Ruhui Cheng1, Yanming Xu1,4,*, Wei Zhang1

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.129, No.1, pp. 323-339, 2021, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2021.016794

    Abstract The present work couples isogeometric analysis (IGA) and boundary element methods (BEM) for three dimensional steady heat conduction problems with variable coefficients. The Computer-Aided Design (CAD) geometries are built by subdivision surfaces, and meantime the basis functions of subdivision surfaces are employed to discretize the boundary integral equations for heat conduction analysis. Moreover, the radial integration method is adopted to transform the additional domain integrals caused by variable coefficients to the boundary integrals. Several numerical examples are provided to demonstrate the correctness and advantages of the proposed algorithm in the integration of CAD and numerical analysis. More >

    Abstract The present paper paper, we estimate the theory of thermoelasticity a thin slim strip under the variable thermal conductivity in the fractional-order form is solved. Thermal stress theory considering the equation of heat conduction based on the time-fractional derivative of Caputo of order α is applied to obtain a solution.

The transform of Laplace (LT) and numerical inversion techniques of Laplace were considered for solving the governing basic equations. The inverse of the LT was applied in a numerical manner considering the… More >

    BEM Analysis of 3D Heat Conductionin 3D Thin Anisotropic Media

    Y.C. Shiah1, Y.M. Lee2, Chi-Chang Wang2

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.33, No.3, pp. 229-255, 2013, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2013.033.229

    Abstract In this paper, the boundary integrals for treating 3D field problems are fully regularized for planar elements by the technique of integration by parts (IBP). As has been well documented in open literatures, these integrals appear to be strongly singular and hyper-singular for the associated fundamental solutions. In the past, the IBP approach has only been applied to regularize the integrals for 2D problems. The present work shows that the IBP can also be further extended to treat 3D problems, where two variables of the local coordinates are involved. The presented formulations are fully explicit and also, most importantly, very… More >
