    Review of Collocation Methods and Applications in Solving Science and Engineering Problems

    Weiwu Jiang1, Xiaowei Gao1,2,*

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.140, No.1, pp. 41-76, 2024, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2024.048313

    Abstract The collocation method is a widely used numerical method for science and engineering problems governed by partial differential equations. This paper provides a comprehensive review of collocation methods and their applications, focused on elasticity, heat conduction, electromagnetic field analysis, and fluid dynamics. The merits of the collocation method can be attributed to the need for element mesh, simple implementation, high computational efficiency, and ease in handling irregular domain problems since the collocation method is a type of node-based numerical method. Beginning with the fundamental principles of the collocation method, the discretization process in the continuous… More >

    Fragile Points Method for Modeling Complex Structural Failure

    Mingjing Li1,*, Leiting Dong1, Satya N. Atluri2

    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.27, No.4, pp. 1-2, 2023, DOI:10.32604/icces.2023.09689

    Abstract The Fragile Points Method (FPM) is a discontinuous meshless method based on the Galerkin weak form [1]. In the FPM, the problem domain is discretized by spatial points and subdomains, and the displacement trial function of each subdomain is derived based on the points within the support domain. For this reason, the FPM doesn’t suffer from the mesh distortion and is suitable to model complex structural deformations. Furthermore, similar to the discontinuous Galerkin finite element method, the displacement trial functions used in the FPM is piece-wise continuous, and the numerical flux is introduced across each… More >

    An Effective Meshless Approach for Inverse Cauchy Problems in 2D and 3D Electroelastic Piezoelectric Structures

    Ziqiang Bai1, Wenzhen Qu2,*, Guanghua Wu3,*

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.138, No.3, pp. 2955-2972, 2024, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2023.031474

    Abstract In the past decade, notable progress has been achieved in the development of the generalized finite difference method (GFDM). The underlying principle of GFDM involves dividing the domain into multiple sub-domains. Within each sub-domain, explicit formulas for the necessary partial derivatives of the partial differential equations (PDEs) can be obtained through the application of Taylor series expansion and moving-least square approximation methods. Consequently, the method generates a sparse coefficient matrix, exhibiting a banded structure, making it highly advantageous for large-scale engineering computations. In this study, we present the application of the GFDM to numerically solve More >

    A Novel Accurate Method for Multi-Term Time-Fractional Nonlinear Diffusion Equations in Arbitrary Domains

    Tao Hu1, Cheng Huang2, Sergiy Reutskiy3,*, Jun Lu4, Ji Lin5,*

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.138, No.2, pp. 1521-1548, 2024, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2023.030449

    Abstract A novel accurate method is proposed to solve a broad variety of linear and nonlinear (1+1)-dimensional and (2+1)- dimensional multi-term time-fractional partial differential equations with spatial operators of anisotropic diffusivity. For (1+1)-dimensional problems, analytical solutions that satisfy the boundary requirements are derived. Such solutions are numerically calculated using the trigonometric basis approximation for (2+1)-dimensional problems. With the aid of these analytical or numerical approximations, the original problems can be converted into the fractional ordinary differential equations, and solutions to the fractional ordinary differential equations are approximated by modified radial basis functions with time-dependent coefficients.

    Comprehensive Simulation of Hot Shape Rolling by Considering the Casting Defects

    Umut Hanoglu1,2,*, Božidar Šarler1,2

    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.27, No.2, pp. 1-1, 2023, DOI:10.32604/icces.2023.09610

    Abstract In this research, a rolling simulation system based on a novel meshless solution procedure is upgraded considering casting defects in the material model. The improved model can predict the final stage of the defects after multi-pass rolling. The casted steel billet that enters the rolling mill arrives with casting defects. Those defects may be porosity due to the shrinkage and cavity or micro-cracks near the surface due to hot tearing. In this work, porosity is considered the main defect source since it can easily be determined experimentally. The damage theory develops a damaged stiffness matrix… More >

    Simulation of Reheating Furnace for Steel Billets by a Meshless Method

    Qingguo Liu1,2, Umut Hanoglu1,2, Božidar Šarler1,2,*

    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.27, No.2, pp. 1-1, 2023, DOI:10.32604/icces.2023.09609

    Abstract A simulation of reheating furnace in a steel production line where the steel billets are heated from room temperature up to 1200 ˚C, is carried out using a novel meshless solution procedure. The reheating of the steel billets before the continuous hot-rolling process should be employed to dissolve alloying elements as much as possible and redistribute the carbon. In this work, governing equations are solved by the local radial basis function collocation method (LRBFCM) in a strong form with explicit time-stepping. The solution of the diffusion equations for the temperature and carbon concentration fields is… 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 More >

    Simulation of Oil-Water Flow in a Shale Reservoir Using a Radial Basis Function

    Zenglin Wang1, Liaoyuan Zhang1, Anhai Zhong2, Ran Ding2, Mingjing Lu2,3,*

    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.18, No.6, pp. 1795-1804, 2022, DOI:10.32604/fdmp.2022.020020

    Abstract Due to the difficulties associated with preprocessing activities and poor grid convergence when simulating shale reservoirs in the context of traditional grid methods, in this study an innovative two-phase oil-water seepage model is elaborated. The modes is based on the radial basis meshless approach and is used to determine the pressure and water saturation in a sample reservoir. Two-dimensional examples demonstrate that, when compared to the finite difference method, the radial basis function method produces less errors and is more accurate in predicting daily oil production. The radial basis function and finite difference methods provide More >

    Chih-Wen Chang*

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.73, No.1, pp. 433-451, 2022, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2022.027021

    Abstract We retrieve unknown nonlinear large space-time dependent forces burdened with the vibrating nonlinear Euler-Bernoulli beams under varied boundary data, comprising two-end fixed, cantilevered, clamped-hinged, and simply supported conditions in this study. Even though some researchers used several schemes to overcome these forward problems of Euler-Bernoulli beams; however, an effective numerical algorithm to solve these inverse problems is still not available. We cope with the homogeneous boundary conditions, initial data, and final time datum for each type of nonlinear beam by employing a variety of boundary shape functions. The unknown nonlinear large external force can be… More >
