    G. Seifert, S. Leoni, M. Baldoni
    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.17, No.3, pp. 69-70, 2011, DOI:10.3970/icces.2011.017.069
    Abstract Energy storage is particular important for advanced fuel-efficient vehicles and mobile applications, rechargeable batteries play a key role for such applications. Lithium-ion batteries are today the leading energy storage systems. However, the cathode materials remain insufficient for the use of lithium-ion batteries. To improve this drawback, cathode materials has to be developed further. Therefore, today, most research is focused on the cathode material, and a precise knowledge of the diffusion/transport behaviour of lithium cations inside battery-cathode materials is critical for improving energy density, material properties, and for estimating the impact of chemical substitution. Computer simulations down to an atomistic scale… More >

    Numerical simulation of material fragmentation with material point method

    P.F. Yang, X. Zhang, Y. Liu
    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.17, No.3, pp. 71-72, 2011, DOI:10.3970/icces.2011.017.071
    Abstract The material point method (MPM) is extended to the simulations of material fragmentation due to detonation. A crack modeling scheme based on contact algorithm with material failure process is developed to study the dynamic crack propagation in plastic media. Particles after failure are transformed to a different velocity field by contact method, which makes the crack surface not constrained by grid lines and free to propagate dynamically in any direction even when the material experiences large plastic strain increments. The random characterization of the fragmentation can be described by both microscopic defect and macroscopic failure. When considering microscopic damage of… More >

    Comparison of constitutive models using different yield functions for porous shape memory alloy with experimental date

    Liu Bingfei, Dui Guansuo, Zhu Yuping
    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.17, No.3, pp. 73-74, 2011, DOI:10.3970/icces.2011.017.073
    Abstract Several constitutive models with different yield functions for porous shape memory alloy (SMA) are compared with the experimental date. Different approaches such as upper bound theory and lower bound theory have been adopted and a new correction formula of the yield function is proposed in this work to study the behavior of porous SMAs. Numerical results are compared with the experimental date by Zhao et al (2005). It shows that the researches using upper bound and lower bound are nearly the same and the new correction formula is much closer to the experimental data than others. More >

    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.17, No.3, pp. 75-76, 2011, DOI:10.3970/icces.2011.017.075
    Abstract In this paper, a modified paradigm of quasi conforming finite element method with truncated polynomial expansions of in-domain displacements and derived expansions of strains is introduced. The purpose is to improve the drawbacks of the traditional one that neglecting the connections between the components of strain and lack of principle in the process of choosing polynomial expansions.

Numerical tests are carried out for validation of the present element. The results show that the present element preserves all… More >

    Investigation on the Singularities of Some Singular integrals

    Zai You YAN
    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.17, No.3, pp. 77-78, 2011, DOI:10.3970/icces.2011.017.077
    Abstract In the boundary element method, treatment of all the possible singular integrals is very important for the correctness and accuracy of the solutions. Generally, the directional derivative of a weakly singular integral is computed by an integral in the sense of Cauchy principle value if the directional derivative of the weakly singular integral kernel is strongly singular or in the sense of Hadamard finite part integral if the the directional derivative of the weakly singular integral kernel is hypersingular. We will try to discover how the strongly singular and hypersingular integrals are generated and propose a method to avoid the… More >

    Structural optimization of the manned pressure hull of a deep manned submersible based on a new safety standard

    Binbin Pan, Weicheng Cui
    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.17, No.3, pp. 81-82, 2011, DOI:10.3970/icces.2011.017.081
    Abstract The most critical component of a deep manned submersible is the manned pressure hull. It provides not only a safe living space for pilots and scientists but also provides a proper working condition for non-pressure-resisting and non-water-repellent equipments. At the same time, the weight of the pressure hull occupies a large part of the total weight of the deep manned submersible. So the pressure hull should be designed to have enough strength, water-tightness and as light as possible. As the most commonly used pressure hull type, spherical pressure hull has been used in all the existing deep manned submersibles such… More >

    Study of an adjustment method in the pose relay videometric using camera network

    CHAO Zhi-chao1,3, YU Qi-feng2,3, JIANG Guang-wen1,3, FU Si-hua1,3
    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.17, No.3, pp. 83-84, 2011, DOI:10.3970/icces.2011.017.083
    Abstract Thanks to its high precision, non-contact feature and low cost, videometrics has found wide application in recent years. However, it is generally suited only for the pose (i.e., position and attitude) measurement of intervisible objects or objects in the same viewing field. The traditional videometric approach cannot be used to measure the pose deformation of objects in a large viewing field or of non-intervisible objects in the large structures commonly used in technological and engineering construction today. To overcome the difficulties encountered in applying traditional videometrics to deformation measurement between non-intervisible objects, Yu et al. have proposed and developed a… More >

    Hybrid and mixed variational principles for the fully nonlinear analysis of shells

    Paulo M. Pimenta
    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.17, No.3, pp. 85-86, 2011, DOI:10.3970/icces.2011.017.085
    Abstract This work addresses the development of some alternative hybrid and mixed variational formulations for the geometrically-exact three-dimensional first-order-shear shell boundary value problem [1,2]. In the framework of the complementary-energy-based formulations, a Legendre transformation is used to introduce the complementary energy density in the variational statements as a function of the cross-sectional resultants only. The corresponding variational principles are shown to feature stationarity within the framework of the boundary-value-problem. The main features of the principles are highlighted, giving special attention to their relationships from both theoretical and numerical point of view.

    Variational principles constitute the core of the development of… More >

    Deformation mechanisms in advanced Ti-based alloy in instrument-workpiece interaction

    Murat Demiral, Anish Roy, Vadim V. Silberschmidt
    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.17, No.3, pp. 87-88, 2011, DOI:10.3970/icces.2011.017.087
    Abstract Industrial applications of Ti-based alloys especially in aerospace, marine and offshore industries have grown significantly over the years primarily due to their high strength, light weight as well as excellent temperature- and corrosion-resistance properties. Since these alloys are hard to machine, there is an obvious demand to develop simulation tools in order to analyze the material's behavior in machining processes, such as a turning, and to optimize process parameters. High levels of strains and strain rates accompanied by generated high temperatures characterize the deformation process in turning. The character of realisation of deformation mechanisms as well as a spatial distribution… More >

    The Calculation of Electrical Properties of Quartz Crystal Resonators with Parallel Finite Element Analysis Based on the Mindlin Plate Theory

    Ji Wang, Yangyang Chen, Guijia Chen, Jianke Du
    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.17, No.3, pp. 89-90, 2011, DOI:10.3970/icces.2011.017.089
    Abstract The finite element analysis of quartz crystal resonators is increasingly important due to the precise design requirements in frequency and electrical properties with the consideration of crystal blank, processing, mounting, and packaging. To reduce the computational cost, one proven approach is to use the Mindlin plate theory for the thickness-shear vibrations of crystal plates with electrodes and other complications. This approach has been implemented in parallel finite element method with the sophisticated software components for the solutions of linear systems in terms such as eigenvalues, mode shapes, and amplitudes, which in turn can be used for the evaluation of certain… More >

    Rotation-Free Beam and Shell Models for Geometric Nonlinear Analysis of Thin Shells

    K.Y.Sze, Y.X.Zhou
    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.17, No.3, pp. 91-92, 2011, DOI:10.3970/icces.2011.017.091
    Abstract In this paper, new rotation-free beam and shell models are presented. Unlike the finite element models, rotation-free models employ integration domains which are smaller than the domains of influence. Hence, they are sometimes known as overlapping elements. The present linear straight beam and plate models are the same as those of Phaal & Calladine in the sense that quadratic interpolation are employed to construct the transverse deflection. Nevertheless, Phaal & Calladine turned to a hinged-angle approach for the linear curved beam and shell models and did not present the geometric nonlinear models. In our formulation, the linear curved beam and… More >

    On the New Plasticity Theories for Metal Deformation under High Strain, High Strain Rate and High Temperature

    Liangchi Zhang
    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.17, No.3, pp. 93-94, 2011, DOI:10.3970/icces.2011.017.093
    Abstract Understanding the deformation mechanisms of metals under the coupled attack of high strain, high strain rate and high temperature (coupled H3 effect) has become more and more important to the development of new manufacturing technologies. High speed machining (HSM), a new technology to cut high hardness materials, is a typical example, as HSM has become an essential process in making ultra-precision, high-integrity components for devices and structures in the automotive, aeronautical, aerospace and biomedical industries. Nevertheless, due to the high machining speed in HSM, many problems which do not appear in conventional machining will take place. New plasticity theories are… More >

    Phase Transformation Behavior of C60 Fullerene under Atmospheric Pressure

    Wen-Hwa Chen, Chun-Hung Wu, Hsien-Chie Cheng
    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.17, No.3, pp. 97-98, 2011, DOI:10.3970/icces.2011.017.097
    Abstract The phase transformation behaviors of C60 fullerene under atmospheric pressure are reported using a proposed thermostat molecular dynamics method designed for a solid system. We find that C60 fullerene directly undergoes a solid-vapor phase transformation, instead of a solid-liquid phase transition, at a specific threshold temperature. It reveals that C60 fullerene will sublimate when heated rather than melt under atmospheric pressure. This phenomenon is coincident with that of graphite at pressures below 10MPa. The sublimation point of C60 fullerene, rather than the melting, is about 4350o20K, locating in the published range of about 4000-4500K for graphite at pressures below 10… More >
