    Abstract The modeling of the response of the human head to blast like loading is of importance for many applications including the study of traumatic brain injury resulting from improvised explosive devices. One key issue in simulating the response of the head is to have models that are characteristic of the response of the head and its components under these conditions. We review different characterization efforts for evaluating the response of the skin, skull, and brain within this window of response and use these results to develop models appropriate for the characterization of each component. We discuss efforts made to construct… More >

    Computational techniques applied to design ventilation system for the preservation of the tombs of the valley of Kings, Luxor

    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.15, No.2, pp. 47-56, 2010, DOI:10.3970/icces.2010.015.047
    Abstract The cultural heritage left by the Egyptian Pharaohs in the tombs of the Valley of the Kings represents some of the key elements of the Egyptian cultural and tourism wealth and standing monuments demonstrating the wealth and technology of the pharaohs. These tombs were prepared to bury the Kings' mummies and artifacts for eternal life. Many of the wall paintings identifying the various ancient rituals and life style are in good conditions as the tombs were only recently opened to the public and resulted, in many instances, to dramatic deterioration of the wall paintings due in part to excessive humidity.… More >

    A thermo-hydro-mechanical problem for an embedded disc inclusion

    A.P.S. Selvadurai1
    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.15, No.2, pp. 57-64, 2010, DOI:10.3970/icces.2010.015.057
    Abstract This paper examines the problem of the internal heating of a poroelastic halfspace by an embedded rigid disc inclusion. A computational approach is adopted for modelling the resulting coupled thermo-hydro mechanical processes associated with the heating by the disc inclusion. More >

    Numerical prediction and sequential process optimization in sheet forming based on genetic algorithm

    Schmidt1
    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.15, No.2, pp. 65-74, 2010, DOI:10.3970/icces.2010.015.065
    Abstract Genetic algorithm is an emerging technique used in engineering design activities to find an optimized solution which satisfy a number of design goals. Non-linear direct method of goal search use successive linearization techniques, which are sensitive to the chosen starting solution and quality of the objective function. The proposed technique can solve programming problems having non-convex regions, which are usually avoided in classical optimization problems. The efficacy of the proposed novel method is demonstrated by solving a number of test problems. The results suggest that the proposed method is effective and represents a practical tool for solving sheet forming problems. More >
