    Simulation of Wave Propagation Through Inhomogeneous Medium Waveguides Based on Green’s Functions

    Wenzhi Xu1, ZhuoJia Fu1,*, Qiang Xi1

    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.27, No.4, pp. 1-1, 2023, DOI:10.32604/icces.2023.010437

    Abstract Acoustic wave propagation through an inhomogeneous medium may lead to undergo substantial modification. This paper proposed a Green’s functions-based method for the simulation of wave propagation through inhomogeneous medium waveguides. Under ideal conditions, a modified wave equation is derived by variable transformations, in which only the wave speed varies with spatial coordinates. Based on the modified wave equation the acoustic Green’s functions are derived. Then, the localized method of fundamental solution (LMFS) in conjunction with the acoustic Green’s functions is introduced to solve the modified wave equation. In the LMFS, the acoustic Green’s function is considered as its basic function… More >

    Yue Mei1,2,3, Jianwei Deng1,2, Dongmei Zhao1,2, Changjiang Xiao1,2, Tianhang Wang4, Li Dong5, Xuefeng Zhu1,6,*

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.139, No.1, pp. 911-935, 2024, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2023.043810

    Abstract Elastography is a non-invasive medical imaging technique to map the spatial variation of elastic properties of soft tissues. The quality of reconstruction results in elastography is highly sensitive to the noise induced by imaging measurements and processing. To address this issue, we propose a deep learning (DL) model based on conditional Generative Adversarial Networks (cGANs) to improve the quality of nonhomogeneous shear modulus reconstruction. To train this model, we generated a synthetic displacement field with finite element simulation under known nonhomogeneous shear modulus distribution. Both the simulated and experimental displacement fields are used to validate the proposed method. The reconstructed… More >

    Chemically Radiative MHD Flow of a Micropolar Nanofluid over a Stretching/Shrinking Sheet with a Heat Source or Sink

    Parakapali Roja1, Shaik Mohammed Ibrahim2, Thummala Sankar Reddy3, Giulio Lorenzini4,*

    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.20, No.2, pp. 257-274, 2024, DOI:10.32604/fdmp.2023.042283

    Abstract This study examines the behavior of a micropolar nanofluid flowing over a sheet in the presence of a transverse magnetic field and thermal effects. In addition, chemical (first-order homogeneous) reactions are taken into account. A similarity transformation is used to reduce the system of governing coupled non-linear partial differential equations (PDEs), which account for the transport of mass, momentum, angular momentum, energy and species, to a set of non-linear ordinary differential equations (ODEs). The Runge-Kutta method along with shooting method is used to solve them. The impact of several parameters is evaluated. It is shown that the micro-rotational velocity of… More >

    DUAL SOLUTIONS FOR HEAT AND MASS TRANSFER IN MHD JEFFREY FLUID IN THE PRESENCE OF HOMOGENEOUSHETEROGENEOUS REACTIONS

    C. S. K. Rajua , N. Sandeepa, J. Prakashb,1

    Frontiers in Heat and Mass Transfer, Vol.7, pp. 1-8, 2016, DOI:10.5098/hmt.7.14

    Abstract In this study, we analyzed the effects of nonlinear thermal radiation and induced magnetic field on steady two-dimensional incompressible flow of Jeffrey fluid flow past a stretching/shrinking surface in the presence of homogeneous-heterogeneous reactions. For physical relevance in this study we analyzed the behavior of homogeneous and heterogeneous profiles individually. The transformed governing equations with the help of similarity variables are solved numerically via Runge-Kutta and Newton’s method. We obtained better accuracy of the present results by differentiating with the existed published literature. The effect of pertinent parameters on velocity, induced magnetic field, temperature and concentration profiles along with the… More >

    L. Ramamohan Reddya , M. C. Rajub,*, G.S.S. Rajuc, N. A. Reddyb

    Frontiers in Heat and Mass Transfer, Vol.7, pp. 1-12, 2016, DOI:10.5098/hmt.7.20

    Abstract This investigation presents an analytical study on magnetohydrodynamic (MHD), convective flow of a viscoelastic, incompressible, radiative, chemically reactive, electrically conducting and rotating fluid through a porous medium filled in a vertical channel in the presence of thermal diffusion. A magnetic field of uniform strength is applied along the axis of rotation. The fluid is assumed to act on with a periodic time variation of the pressure gradient in upward direction vertically. One of the plates is maintained at non-uniform temperature and the temperature difference of the walls of the channel is assumed high enough that induces heat transfer due to… More >

    A New Distribution Method for Wet Steam Injection Optimization

    Jingjing Gao, Xingkai Zhang*

    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.20, No.1, pp. 109-127, 2024, DOI:10.32604/fdmp.2023.030106

    Abstract A new approach and a new related distribution system are proposed to address the issue of uneven steam injection caused by the different suction capacities of the used wells during the application of steam “stimulation” methods for enhanced oil recovery. The new distribution system consists of a swirler, spiral dividing baffles, and critical flow nozzles. Numerical simulations are used to analyze the flow-field and degree of steam homogeneity obtained with such an approach. The results indicate that a higher inlet pressure leads to better results. Additionally, the internal flow field becomes more stable, and the deviation from an even distribution… More >

    Size Dependent Structures and Properties of Na0.5Bi0.5TiO3-Based Ceramics for Piezoelectric Sensors

    Pan Chen1,2,3, Baojin Chu1,*

    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.26, No.4, pp. 1-1, 2023, DOI:10.32604/icces.2023.09199

    Abstract Generally, film dielectric materials often exhibit size-dependent structure and electric properties. In this work, we demonstrate a similar behavior in bulk Na0.5Bi0.5TiO3 (NBT)-based polycrystalline ceramics. According to the results from X-ray diffraction, the (Na0.5Bi0.5)0.92Ba0.08Ti0.99Mg0.01O2.99 (NBT8M1.0) ceramic showed a complex structure that consists of rhombohedral, tetragonal and cubic symmetries. We found, when decreasing the thickness of a ϕ 10 mm NBT8M1.0 ceramic from 1230 μm to 230 μm, the ceramic showed increased content of cubic symmetry (CC) from 28% to 56%. Meanwhile, the piezoelectric response (d33) increased from 107 pC/N to 134 pC/N and the depolarization temperature (Td) decreased from 170… More >

    Characterizing Nonhomogeneous Variation in Material Properties of Soft Tissues

    Yue Mei1,*, Stéphane Avril2

    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.26, No.3, pp. 1-1, 2023, DOI:10.32604/icces.2023.09064

    Abstract Characterizing nonhomogeneous variation in material properties of soft tissues has wide application in biomedical engineering and clinical medicine, including but not limited to cancerous disease detection and patient-specific surgical planning of cardiovascular diseases. With the advancement of imaging techniques, we are capable of acquiring not only the geometry of soft tissues in vivo, but also the associated deformation in the physiological state. With the obtained displacement data, the nonhomogeneous material property distribution of soft tissues can be determined by solving inverse problem in elasticity. In this presentation, we will present our recent work on identification of nonhomogeneous property distributions of… More >

    INFLUENCE OF CONVECTIVE BOUNDARY CONDITION ON NONLINEAR THERMAL CONVECTION FLOW OF A MICROPOLAR FLUID SATURATED POROUS MEDIUM WITH HOMOGENEOUS-HETEROGENEOUS REACTIONS

    Chetteti RamReddya,†, Teegala Pradeepaa

    Frontiers in Heat and Mass Transfer, Vol.8, pp. 1-10, 2017, DOI:10.5098/hmt.8.6

    Abstract A numerical approach has been used to analyze the effects of homogeneous-heterogeneous reaction and nonlinear density temperature variation over a vertical plate in an incompressible micropolar fluid flow saturated Darcy porous medium. In addition, convective boundary condition is incorporated in a micropolar fluid model. The similarity representation for the set of partial differential equations is attained by applying Lie group transformations. The resulting non-dimensional equations are worked out numerically by spectral quasi-linearization method. Less temperature and wall couple stress coefficient, but more velocity, skin friction, species concentration, and heat transfer rate are noticed by enhancing the nonlinear convection parameter.

    THERMO-GEOMETRIC PARAMETER EFFECTS ON CONVECTIVELY COOLED INHOMOGENEOUS RECTANGULAR FIN

    Ernest Léontin Lemouboua , Hervé Thierry Tagne Kamdema,* , Jean Roger Bogningb

    Frontiers in Heat and Mass Transfer, Vol.8, pp. 1-8, 2017, DOI:10.5098/hmt.8.34

    Abstract Numerical experiments involving heat transfer were performed to analyze the influence of both fin thermo-geometric parameter and cooling boundary conditions on the temperature distribution and the efficiency of convective cooled inhomogeneous rectangular fin. The inhomogeneity of the fin is due to both temperature dependent thermal conductivity and convection heat coefficients. The analysis was facilitated by the use of the differential transformation method, which can solve nonlinear differential equation. A specific application is first made for temperature/efficiency homogeneous fin predictions and the results are in excellent agreement with standard exact results. Predictions of inhomogeneous fin temperature and efficiency for three different… More >
