    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.8, No.2, pp. 41-46, 2008, DOI:10.3970/icces.2008.008.041
    Abstract Previous attempts to track skeletal kinematics from sequences of images acquired using biplane dynamic radiography report challenges in automating the tracking technique due to image resolution issues, occlusion from segments appearing synchronously in the field of view and computational load. This translates into many hours of manual work to export the kinematics. The proposed new tracking method tackles the above problems and reduces the time to export kinematics from several hours to less than 3 minutes. More >

    Abstract The paper follows the analyse of the connections between the constructive, working parameters, the annual energy consumptions and the energy quantity included in fitting out; it will formulate a methodology of establishment of the optimum values of the parameters of admeasurements of the pumping stations for the setting under pressure, of pipes networks, what ensure an optimum consumption of energy during of duty of the fitting out (the operational energy and the included energy in the networks, equipment and constructions), of the conditions after that it can be obtained. It will follow the generalization of the solutions of increase of… More >

    Fatigue Crack Growth Simulation using S-version FEM

    M. Kikuchi1, Y. Wada2, A. Utsunomiya3, Y. Li4
    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.8, No.2, pp. 67-72, 2008, DOI:10.3970/icces.2008.008.067
    Abstract Fatigue crack growth under mixed mode loading conditions is simulated using S-FEM. By using S-FEM technique, only local mesh should be re-meshed and it becomes easy to simulate crack growth. By combining with auto-meshing technique, local mesh is re-meshed automatically, and curved crack path is modeled easily. Three dimensional surface crack problem is solved by this technique. Pure mode I crack and slant crack problems are solved, and fatigue crack growth processes are simulated. The change of aspect ratio of surface crack and distributions of stress intensity factor along crack front are evaluated and discussed. More >

    Buckling Behavior of Elastic Kelvin Open-Cell Foams Subjected to Uniaxial Compression

    N. Ohno1, D. Okumura1, A. Okada1
    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.8, No.2, pp. 73-80, 2008, DOI:10.3970/icces.2008.008.073
    Abstract This paper describes buckling modes and stresses of elastic Kelvin open-cell foams subjected to uniaxial compressions. Cubic unit cells and cell aggregates in model foams are analyzed using a homogenization theory. The analysis is performed on the assumption that the struts in foams have a non-uniform distribution of cross-sectional areas as observed experimentally. By performing the analysis based on the uniformity of strut cross-sectional areas, it is shown that the non-uniformity of cross-sectional areas is an important factor for the buckling behavior of open-cell foams.

    Coupling Atomistic and Continuum Finite Element Models: Multi-Scale Simulations of Nanotribological Contacts of Nanometer Scale Coatings

    Baolin Wang1
    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.8, No.2, pp. 81-84, 2008, DOI:10.3970/icces.2008.008.081
    Abstract When the size of a physical system is smaller than its characteristic dimensions, the macroscopic viewpoint may not be applicable. In addition, experiments at micro/nanometer scale are difficult and the analysis of nano-experimental data is far from simple. This is mostly due to the lack of effective models that are able to study the structural characteristics and mechanics behavior of the micro/nanometer physical systems. Atomic simulation simulation has been used extensively in the investigation of nanoscale phenomena. However, the size limit of atomic simulation is far short to reach the macroscale because of the limitation in computer capacity. Therefore, the… More >
