    An Influence Maximization Algorithm Based on the Mixed Importance of Nodes

    Yong Hua1, Bolun Chen1,2,*, Yan Yuan1, Guochang Zhu1, Jialin Ma1

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.59, No.2, pp. 517-531, 2019, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2019.05278

    Abstract The influence maximization is the problem of finding k seed nodes that maximize the scope of influence in a social network. Therefore, the comprehensive influence of node needs to be considered, when we choose the most influential node set consisted of k seed nodes. On account of the traditional methods used to measure the influence of nodes, such as degree centrality, betweenness centrality and closeness centrality, consider only a single aspect of the influence of node, so the influence measured by traditional methods mentioned above of node is not accurate. In this paper, we obtain the More >

    A Loose Coupling Multiscale Approach for the Detailed Analysis of the Influence of Critical Areas on the Global Behaviour of Composite Structures

    D. Chrupalla1, J. Kreikemeier1, S. Berg2, L. Kärger3, M. Doreille4, T. Ludwig4, E. Jansen2, R. Rolfes2, A.Kling1

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.32, No.3, pp. 159-176, 2012, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2012.032.159

    Abstract In this paper, a loose coupling multiscale modeling technique for the detailed numerical analysis of critical areas in composite structures is presented. It is used to describe the global (macroscopic) behaviour of composite structures taking into account the effects of local phenomena. This is done by indirectly connecting the global and local FE-models. Prescribed displacements are assigned to the local boundaries in the transition from the global to local modeling level. The local-to-global transition is realized by assigning averaged local stresses to the respective global Gauss points and by updating the global tangent stiffness operator. More >

    The Influence of Third Order Elastic Constants on Axisymmetric Wave Propagation Velocity in the Two-Layered Pre-Stressed Hollow Cylinder

    S.D. Akbarov1,2

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.32, No.1, pp. 29-60, 2012, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2012.032.029

    Abstract By the use of the Murnaghan potential the influence of third order elastic constants on axisymmetric longitudinal wave propagation velocity in a pre-stressed two-layered circular hollow cylinder is investigated. This investigation is carried out within the scope of the piecewise homogeneous body model by utilizing the first version of the small initial deformation theory of the Three-dimensional Linearized Theory of Elastic Waves in Initially Stressed Bodies. Numerical results are obtained and analyzed for the cases where the material of the outer hollow cylinder material is aluminum, but the material of the inner cylinder is steel More >

    Influence of Geometric Design Variable and Bone Quality on Stress Distribution for Zirconia Dental Implants-A 3D Finite Element Analysis

    Duraisamy Velmurugan1, Masilamany Santha Alphin1,*

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.117, No.2, pp. 125-141, 2018, DOI:10.31614/cmes.2018.01817

    Abstract This study aims to investigate the effects of variable thread pitch on stress distribution in bones of different bone qualities under two different loading conditions (Vertical, and Horizontal) for a Zirconia dental implant. For this purpose, a three dimensional finite element model of the mandibular premolar section and three single threaded implants of 0.8 mm, 1.6 mm, 2.4 mm pitch was designed. Finite element analysis software was used to develop the model and three different bone qualities (Type II, Type III, and Type IV) were prepared. A vertical load of 200 N, and a horizontal… More >

    Deformation and failure analysis of river levee induced by coal mining and its influence factor

    Meng Li1,2, Jixiong Zhang1,3, Nan Zhou1, Qiang Zhang1

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.113, No.2, pp. 183-194, 2017, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2017.113.189

    Abstract To study the influence of coal mining on the stability of river levees, a mechanical model of mining-induced river levee deformation was established. This was based on the mining-induced deformation characteristics of river levees and the application of a typical surface subsidence function. Meanwhile, a failure criterion was proposed for river levees. Using some examples, the deformation of, and stress distribution through, river levees under the influence of mining were obtained: the maximum tensile stress on the bottom of the river levee was less than the tensile strength, under which circumstance the river levee remained More >

    The Influence of Non-Homogeneous Material Properties on ElasticWave Propagation in Fluid-Filled Boreholes

    A. Tadeu1, P. Stanak2, J. Antonio1, J. Sladek2, V. Sladek2

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.107, No.5, pp. 345-378, 2015, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2015.107.345

    Abstract This paper implements a numerical method based on the mutual coupling of the boundary element method (BEM) and the meshless local Petrov-Galerkin (MLPG) method to simulate elastic wave propagation in fluid-filled boreholes. The fluid-solid interaction is solved in the frequency domain assuming longitudinally invariant geometry in the axial direction (2.5D formulation).
    This model is used to assess the influence of the non-homogeneous material properties of a borehole wall that can be caused by a damaged zone, construction process or the ageing of material. The BEM is used to model propagation within the unbounded homogeneous domain… More >

    Numerical Simulation of An Experienced Farmer Lifting Tubers of Cassava for Designing A Bionic Harvester

    Wang Yang1,2, Juanjuan Li1, Jian Yang1,3, Lin Wei4

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.104, No.6, pp. 471-491, 2015, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2015.104.471

    Abstract Harvesting is the most difficult and costly operation in cassava production. Currently, most cassava harvest still depends on manual tools. Effective mechanized harvesters are necessary to improve harvesting quality and reduce production cost. Therefore, it is very important to figure out key information for designing an effective tuber lifting system used in bionic “dig-pull” harvesters. A numerical simulation model of human-stem-tuber-soil system was developed to carry out numerical simulation of manually pulling tuber. Coupling algorithm of Lagrange and smoothed particle hydrodynamics (SPH) was used in the model. Lifting mechanism of experienced farmer was studied at… More >

    Abstract In accordance with the influence of underground mining on the deformation and failure of a shallow-buried gas pipeline, the pipe-soil interaction during mining is classified into two stages, namely coordinated deformation stage and partial hanging stage. According to the mechanical characteristics of the buried pipeline in each stage, the models of a) a beam on an elastic foundation, b) an elastic beam under uniform load, and c) a vertical and horizontal bending beam are introduced in a mining subsidence zone to mechanically analyze, respectively a) the pipeline in non-mining subsidence zone, b) the pipeline at… More >

    Abstract Single crystal ferromagnetic shape memory alloy is a kind of new intelligent materials, it shows obvious anisotropy. Micromechanics theory has been used to analyze the whole mechanical behaviors of this material. However, Eshelby’s tensor of this material which plays an important role has still not solved efficiently. Based on the existing micromechanics constitutive model, this paper analyzes the numerical calculation formula of Eshelby’s tensor of anisotropic ferromagnetic shape memory alloy. Adopting the way of Gauss integral, the optimal Gaussian integral points for different inclusion shapes and the corresponding numerical solution of Eshelby’s tensor are obtained.Furthermore, More >
