    X.-H. Chen1, Y.-W. Mai2
    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.14, No.2, pp. 43-50, 2010, DOI:10.3970/icces.2010.014.043
    Abstract A general elastoplastic fracture mechanics theory is proposed for applying the Essential-Work-of-Fracture (EWF) Method to quasi-static and impact toughness characterization. Advanced finite element modeling is developed to simulate the EWF Method using the crack-tip opening angle criterion (CTOA) and the constitutive relation of the material under consideration. For Poly(ethylene-terephlate) (PET) films, the load-displacement curves are calculated for the whole crack propagation process of deeply double-edge notched tensile specimens (DENT) with different ligament lengths so as to determine the total work, the essential work and the non-essential work of fracture. The effects of specimen gauge length and ligament length on crack… More >

    A simple and effective preconditioner for integrated-RBF-based Cartesian-grid schemes

    N. Mai-Duy1, T. Tran-Cong1
    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.14, No.2, pp. 51-56, 2010, DOI:10.3970/icces.2010.014.051
    Abstract This paper presents a preconditioning scheme to improve the condition number of integrated radial-basis-function (RBF) matrices in solving large-scale 2D elliptic problems. The problem domain is discretised using a Cartesian grid, over which integrated RBF networks are employed to represent the field variable. The present preconditioner is constructed from 1D integrated RBF networks along grid lines. Test problems defined on rectangular and non-rectangular domains are employed to study the performance of the scheme. More >

    A comparison of various basis functions to linear stability of circular jet using MLPG method

    Xie Ming-Liang1
    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.14, No.2, pp. 57-62, 2010, DOI:10.3970/icces.2010.014.057
    Abstract Various basis function based on Fourier-Chebyshev Petrov-Galerkin spectral method is described for computation of temporal linear stability in a circular jet. Basis functions presented here are exponentially mapped Chebyshev functions. There is a linear dependence between the components of the vector field according to the perturbation continuum equation. Therefore, there are only two degrees of freedom. According to the principle of permutation and combination, the basis function has three basic forms, i.e., the radial, azimuthal or axial component is free. The results show that three eigenvalues for various cases are consistent, but the basis function in case I is preferable… More >

    Sampling-reconstruction procedure of discrete Markov processes with continuous time

    Yu.A. Goritskiy1, V.A. Kazakov2
    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.14, No.2, pp. 63-64, 2010, DOI:10.3970/icces.2010.014.063
    Abstract At the first time the statistical description of the Sampling-Reconstruction Procedure (SRP) of Discrete Markov Processes (Markov chains) with continuous time and with an arbitrary number of states is given. The mathematical models of Markov chains with continuous time are intensively used in the description of some real stochastic processes with jumps (in control systems and radio engineering), for instance, impulse noise [1, 2]. This is the reason that it is necessary to know: how to sample, how to reconstruct and how to calculate the reconstruction errors of such processes. (Jumps can be occurred in continuous time moments.) So, the… More >
