    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.6, No.2, pp. 51-70, 2007, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2007.006.051
    Abstract In this paper, we present a multi-resolution adaptive algorithm for solving problems described by partial differential equations. The technique is based on the collocation method using Fup basis functions, which belong to a class of Rvachev's infinitely differentiable finite functions. As it is possible to calculate derivation values of Fup basis functions of high degree in a precise yet simple way, so it is possible to efficiently apply strong formulation procedures. The mesh free method developed in this work is named Adaptive Fup Collocation Method (AFCM). The distribution of collocation points within the observed area is changed adaptively, depending on… More >

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.6, No.2, pp. 71-92, 2007, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2007.006.071
    Abstract A detailed and accurate three-dimensional finite element stress analysis was conducted on countersunk rivet holes in a plate subjected to tension loading. The analysis included a wide range of countersunk depths, plate thicknesses, countersunk angles and plate widths. The study confirmed some of the previous results, addressed their differences, provided many new results, and investigated countersunk angle and width effects. Using the detailed FE results and the limiting conditions, a general equation for stress concentration was developed and verified. More >


    Cased Hole Flexural Modes in Anisotropic Formations

    Ping’en Li1, Xianyue Su1,2, Youquan Yin1
    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.6, No.2, pp. 93-102, 2007, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2007.006.093
    Abstract Based on the perturbation method, for flexural wave in cased hole in anisotropic formation, the alteration in the phase velocity caused by the differences in elastic constants between anisotropic formation of interest and a reference, or unperturbed isotropic formation is obtained. Assuming the cased hole is well bonded, the Thomson-Haskell transfer matrix method is applied to calculate the dispersion relation of flexural wave in cased hole in unperturbed isotropic formation. Both the cases of a fast and slow formation are considered where the symmetry axis of a transversely isotropic (TI) formation makes an angle with the cased hole axis, the… More >


    Flexural-Torsional Buckling and Vibration Analysis of Composite Beams

    E.J. Sapountzakis1, G.C. Tsiatas2
    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.6, No.2, pp. 103-116, 2007, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2007.006.103
    Abstract In this paper the general flexural-torsional buckling and vibration problems of composite Euler-Bernoulli beams of arbitrarily shaped cross section are solved using a boundary element method. The general character of the proposed method is verified from the formulation of all basic equations with respect to an arbitrary coordinate system, which is not restricted to the principal one. The composite beam consists of materials in contact each of which can surround a finite number of inclusions. It is subjected to a compressive centrally applied load together with arbitrarily transverse and/or torsional distributed or concentrated loading, while its edges are restrained by… More >


    A Consistent Computation of Magnetization Reversal under a Circularly Polarized Field and an Anisotropy Field

    Chein-Shan Liu1
    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.6, No.2, pp. 117-128, 2007, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2007.006.117
    Abstract In this paper the Landau-Lifshitz equation is subjected to a circularly polarized field in the plane, as well as both a dc field and an anisotropy field along the vertical easy axis perpendicular to the plane. The representation of Landau-Lifshitz equation in the Minkowski space is a Lie-type system. By performing a computation through the Lie-group solvers we can develop a consistent numerical method, which satisfies the consistency condition exactly, and thus can retain the invariant behavior. Then, we use the consistent numerical method to investigate the magnetization reversal, whose switching criterion is displayed through the minimum curve of the… More >
