    Optimal Control and Spectral Collocation Method for Solving Smoking Models

    Amr M. S. Mahdy1,*, Mohamed S. Mohamed1, Ahoud Y. Al Amiri2, Khaled A. Gepreel1

    Intelligent Automation & Soft Computing, Vol.31, No.2, pp. 899-915, 2022, DOI:10.32604/iasc.2022.017801

    Abstract In this manuscript, we solve the ordinary model of nonlinear smoking mathematically by using the second kind of shifted Chebyshev polynomials. The stability of the equilibrium point is calculated. The schematic of the model illustrates our proposition. We discuss the optimal control of this model, and formularize the optimal control smoking work through the necessary optimality cases. A numerical technique for the simulation of the control problem is adopted. Moreover, a numerical method is presented, and its stability analysis discussed. Numerical simulation then demonstrates our idea. Optimal control for the model is further discussed by clarifying the optimal control through… More >

    Partitioned Formulation for Solving 3D Frictional Contact Problems with BEM using Localized Lagrange Multipliers

    L. Rodríguez-Tembleque1, J.A. González1, R. Abascal1, K.C. Park2, C.A. Felippa2

    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.2, No.1, pp. 21-28, 2007, DOI:10.3970/icces.2007.002.021

    Abstract This work presents an interface treatment method based on localized Lagrange Multipliers (LLM) to solve frictional contact problems between two 3D elastic bodies. The connection between the solids is done using a displacement frame intercalated between the interfaces meshes, and the LLM are collocated at the interface nodes. The Boundary Elements Method (BEM) is used to compute the influence coefficients of the surface points involved, and contact conditions are imposed using projection functions. The LLM provides a partitioned formulation which preserves software modularity, facilitates non-matching meshes treatment and passes the contact patch test [4]. More >

    Fuzzy Optimization of Multivariable Fuzzy Functions

    Şahin Emrah Amrahov1, Iman N.Askerzade1

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.70, No.1, pp. 1-10, 2010, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2010.070.001

    Abstract In this paper we define multivariable fuzzy functions (MFF) and corresponding multivariable crisp functions (MCF). Then we give a definition for the maximum value of MFF, which in some cases coincides with the maximum value in Pareto sense. We introduce generalized maximizing and minimizing sets in order to determine the maximum values of MFF. By equating membership functions of a given fuzzy domain set and the corresponding maximizing set, we obtain a curve of equal possibilities. Then we use the method of Lagrange multipliers to solve the resulting nonlinear optimization problem when the membership functions are differentiable. We finally present… More >

    A 3D Frictionless Contact Domain Method for Large Deformation Problems

    S. Hartmann1, R. Weyler2, J. Oliver1, J.C. Cante2, J.A. Hernández1

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.55, No.3, pp. 211-270, 2010, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2010.055.211

    Abstract This work describes a three-dimensional contact domain method for large deformation frictionless contact problems. Theoretical basis and numerical aspects of this specific contact method are given in [Oliver, Hartmann, Cante, Weyler and Hernández (2009)] and [Hartmann, Oliver, Weyler, Cante and Hernández (2009)] for two-dimensional, large deformation frictional contact problems. In this method, in contrast to many other contact formulations, the necessary contact constraints are formulated on a so-called contact domain, which can be interpreted as a fictive intermediate region connecting the potential contact surfaces of the deformable bodies. This contact domain has the same dimension as the contacting bodies. It… More >

    Fictitious Domain with Least-Squares Spectral Element Method to Explore Geometric Uncertainties by Non-Intrusive Polynomial Chaos Method

    L. Parussini1, V. Pediroda2

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.22, No.1, pp. 41-64, 2007, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2007.022.041

    Abstract In this paper the Non-Intrusive Polynomial Chaos Method coupled to a Fictitious Domain approach has been applied to one- and two-dimensional elliptic problems with geometric uncertainties, in order to demonstrate the accuracy and convergence of the methodology. The main advantage of non-intrusive formulation is that existing deterministic solvers can be used. A new Least-Squares Spectral Element method has been employed for the analysis of deterministic differential problems obtained by Non-Intrusive Polynomial Chaos. This algorithm employs a Fictitious Domain approach and for this reason its main advantage lies in the fact that only a Cartesian mesh needs to be generated. Excellent… More >

    Fictitious Domain Approach for Spectral/hp Element Method

    L. Parussini 1

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.17, No.2, pp. 95-114, 2007, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2007.017.095

    Abstract We propose a fictitious domain method combined with spectral/hp elements for the solution of second-order differential problems. This paper presents the formulation, validation and application of fictitiuos domain-spectral/hp element algorithm to one- and two-dimensional Poisson problems. Fictitious domain methods allow problems formulated on an intricate domain Ω to be solved on a simpler domain Π containing Ω. The Poisson equation, extended to the new domain Π, is expressed as an equivalent set of first-order equations by introducing the gradient as an additional indipendent variable, and spectral/hp element method is used to develop the discrete model. Convergence of relative energy norm… More >

    Vibrations of Cracked Euler-Bernoulli Beams using Meshless Local Petrov-Galerkin (MLPG) Method

    U. Andreaus1,3, R.C. Batra2, M. Porfiri2, 3

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.9, No.2, pp. 111-132, 2005, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2005.009.111

    Abstract Structural health monitoring techniques based on vibration data have received increasing attention in recent years. Since the measured modal characteristics and the transient motion of a beam exhibit low sensitivity to damage, numerical techniques for accurately computing vibration characteristics are needed. Here we use a Meshless Local Petrov-Galerkin (MLPG) method to analyze vibrations of a beam with multiple cracks. The trial and the test functions are constructed using the Generalized Moving Least Squares (GMLS) approximation. The smoothness of the GMLS basis functions requires the use of special techniques to account for the slope discontinuities at the crack locations. Therefore, a… More >
