    Adnan1, Umar Khan2, Naveed Ahmed3, Syed Tauseef Mohyud-Din4, Ilyas Khan5,*, Dumitru Baleanu6,7,8, Kottakkaran Sooppy Nisar9

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.66, No.2, pp. 1563-1576, 2021, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2020.012326

    Abstract Thermal transport investigation in colloidal suspensions is taking a significant research direction. The applications of these fluids are found in various industries, engineering, aerodynamics, mechanical engineering and medical sciences etc. A huge amount of thermal transport is essential in the operation of various industrial production processes. It is a fact that conventional liquids have lower thermal transport characteristics as compared to colloidal suspensions. The colloidal suspensions have high thermal performance due to the thermophysical attributes of the nanoparticles and the host liquid. Therefore, researchers focused on the analysis of the heat transport in nanofluids under diverse circumstances. As such, the… More >

    Comparative Thermal Performance in SiO2–H2O and (MoS2–SiO2)–H2O Over a Curved Stretching Semi-Infinite Region: A Numerical Investigation

    Basharat Ullah1, Umar Khan1, Hafiz Abdul Wahab1, Ilyas Khan2,*, Dumitru Baleanu3,4,5, Kottakkaran Sooppy Nisar6

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.66, No.1, pp. 947-960, 2021, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2020.012430

    Abstract The investigation of Thermal performance in nanofluids and hybrid nanofluids over a curved stretching infinite region strengthens its roots in engineering and industry. Therefore, the comparative thermal analysis in SiO2–H2O and (MoS2–SiO2)–H2O is conducted over curved stretching surface. The model is reduced in the dimensional version via similarity transformation and then treated numerically. The velocity and thermal behavior for both the fluids is decorated against the preeminent parameters. From the analysis, it is examined that the motion of under consideration fluids declines against Fr and λ. The thermal performance enhances for higher volumetric fraction and λ. Further, it is noticed… More >

    Variable Viscosity and Density Biofilm Simulations using an Immersed Boundary Method, Part I: Numerical Scheme and Convergence Results

    Jason F. Hammond1, Elizabeth J. Stewart2, John G. Younger3, Michael J.Solomon2, David M. Bortz4,5

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.98, No.3, pp. 295-340, 2014, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2014.098.295

    Abstract The overall goal of this work is to develop a numerical simulation which correctly describes a bacterial biofilm fluid-structure interaction and separation process. In this, the first of a two-part effort, we fully develop a convergent scheme and provide numerical evidence for the method order as well as a full 3D separation simulation. We use an immersed boundary-based method (IBM) to model and simulate a biofilm with density and viscosity values different from than that of the surrounding fluid. The simulation also includes breakable springs connecting the bacteria in the biofilm which allows the inclusion of erosion and detachment into… More >

    Generalized Finite Difference Method for Numerical Solutions of Density-driven Groundwater Flows

    Po-Wei Li1, Chia-Ming Fan1,2, Chun-Yu Chen1, Cheng-Yu Ku1

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.101, No.5, pp. 319-350, 2014, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2014.101.319

    Abstract A combination of the generalized finite difference method (GFDM), the implicit Euler method and the Newton-Raphson method is proposed to efficiently and accurately analyze the density-driven groundwater flows. In groundwater hydraulics, the problems of density-driven groundwater flows are usually difficult to be solved, since the mathematical descriptions are a system of time- and space-dependent nonlinear partial differential equations. In the proposed numerical scheme, the GFDM and the implicit Euler method were adopted for spatial and temporal discretizations of governing equations. The GFDM is a newly-developed meshless method and is truly free from time-consuming mesh generation and numerical quadrature. Based on… More >

    A New and Simple Meshless LBIE-RBF Numerical Scheme in Linear Elasticity

    E.J. Sellountos1, D. Polyzos2, S.N. Atluri3

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.89, No.6, pp. 513-551, 2012, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2012.089.513

    Abstract A new meshless Local Boundary Integral Equation (LBIE) method for solving two-dimensional elastostatic problems is proposed. Randomly distributed points without any connectivity requirement cover the analyzed domain and Local Radial Basis Functions (LRBFs) are employed for the meshless interpolation of displacements. For each point a circular support domain is centered and a local integral representation for displacements is considered. At the local circular boundaries tractions are eliminated with the aid of companion solution, while at the intersections between the local domains and the global boundary displacements and tractions are treated as independent variables avoiding thus derivatives of LRBFs. Stresses are… More >

    Robust Numerical Scheme for Singularly Perturbed Parabolic Initial-Boundary-Value Problems on Equidistributed Mesh

    Srinivasan Natesan1, S. Gowrisankar2

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.88, No.4, pp. 245-268, 2012, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2012.088.245

    Abstract In this article, we propose a parameter-uniform computational technique to solve singularly perturbed parabolic initial-boundary-value problems exhibiting parabolic layers. The domain is discretized with a uniform mesh on the time direction and a nonuniform mesh obtained via equidistribution of a monitor function for the spatial variable. The numerical scheme consists of the implicit-Euler scheme for the time derivative and the classical central difference scheme for the spatial derivative. Truncation error, and stability analysis are carried out. Error estimates are derived, and numerical examples are presented. More >

    Computing Prager's Kinematic Hardening Mixed-Control Equations in a Pseudo-Riemann Manifold

    Chein-Shan Liu1

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.12, No.3, pp. 161-180, 2006, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2006.012.161

    Abstract Materials' internal spacetime may bear certain similarities with the external spacetime of special relativity theory. Previously, it is shown that material hardening and anisotropy may cause the internal spacetime curved. In this paper we announce the third mechanism of mixed-control to cause the curvedness of internal spacetime. To tackle the mixed-control problem for a Prager kinematic hardening material, we demonstrate two new formulations. By using two-integrating factors idea we can derive two Lie type systems in the product space of Mm+1⊗Mn+1. The Lie algebra is a direct sum of so(m,1)so(n,1), and correspondingly the symmetry group is a direct product of… More >

    A Numerical Variational Approach for Rotor-Propeller Aerodynamics in Axial Flight

    F. Simonetti1, R. M. Ardito Marretta2

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.1, No.3, pp. 81-90, 2000, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2000.001.383

    Abstract Advanced propellers are being developed to improve the performance and fuel economy of future transport aircraft. To study them, various aerodynamic prediction models and systems (from theory to experiment) have been developed via several approaches (Free Wake Analysis, helicoidal source methods, scale model tests). This study focuses on the development of an efficient numerical method to predict the behaviour of rotor or propeller in forward flight. Based on a variational approach, the present numerical technique allows a significant reduction of computer resources used in the calculation of instantaneous velocities to determine the wake geometry and the three-dimensional vortex flow streaming… More >

    A Plastic Damage Model with Stress Triaxiality-Dependent Hardening for Concrete

    X.P. Shen1,2, X.C. Wang1

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.39, No.2, pp. 135-152, 2014, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2014.039.135

    Abstract Emphases of this study were placed on the modelling of plastic damage behaviour of prestressed structural concrete, with special attention being paid to the stress-triaxiality dependent plastic hardening law and the corresponding damage evolution law. A definition of stress triaxiality was proposed and introduced in the model presented here. Drucker-Prager -type plasticity was adopted in the formulation of the plastic damage constitutive equations. Numerical validations were performed for the proposed plasticity-based damage model with a driver subroutine developed in this study. The predicted stress-strain behaviour seems reasonably accurate for the uniaxial tension and uniaxial compression compared with the experimental data… More >
