Development of a computer aided engineering tool for pipe lines

Aydınoğlu, Kemal Yüce
A computer program is developed to solve pipe network problems for incompressible uids. It is intended to run under the Computer Aided Engineering software package CAEedaTM. The nite element method is employed to model the governing equations. The accuracy of the program is validated by comparing the results of ve test case problems choosen from a reference literature. The good agreement between present program and reference solutions is observed. By using geometry, pre-process and post-process capabilities of CAEedaTM, as a result of the program integration, complex pipe network systems can be analyzed easily. Consequently, it may be used as a promising tool for pipe network analysis.


Software development for analyzing fluid transients in pipelines
Habibi Topraghghaleh, Saber; Bozkuş, Zafer; Department of Civil Engineering (2020)
A computer program is developed to analyze and simulate fluid transients in hydraulic systems contributing to finding practical solutions for unsteady flow conditions in pipelines. This program is built up using C sharp programming language in the visual studio platform. In the software, the method of characteristics is used for solving the non-linear partial differential equations of the transient flow. This software’s primary purpose is to find quick solutions for a phenomenon called water hammer, which h...
Evaluation of Terahertz Channel in Data Centers
MOLLAHASANİ, Shahram; Onur, Ertan (2016-04-29)
Designing data center network topologies with the objective of minimizing cost, increasing bisection bandwidth and decreasing latency is a difficult problem. The solutions in the literature mainly concentrate on wired networks and minimizing wiring costs thereof. Only a few proposals address the benefit of employing wireless communications in data centers due to spectrum and bandwidth limitations of current wireless communication technologies. By using terahertz communication in a data center as a complemen...
Parallel solution of sparse linear systems to find the shortest path in large scale graphs
Arslan, Hilal; Manguoğlu, Murat (2018-06-29)
Solving the shortest path problem on large scale networks is crucial for many applications. As parallelism became more common with the advent of multi-core architectures as well as large and complex networks have begun to emerge in many settings, it is inevitable to come up with algorithms that take advantage of the current architectures. One alternative to solve the shortest path problem is to use one of the classical or improved parallel variations of the Dijkstra’s algorithm. However, when the size of th...
Development and application of a broadband multilevel fast multipole algorithm for challenging multiscale problems
Karaosmanoǧlu, B.; YILMAZ, ALİ ÖZGÜR; Ergül, Özgür Salih (2016-08-11)
A broadband implementation of the multilevel fast multipole algorithm is developed and employed to solve multiscale problems involving large objects with small details and discretizations. Despite its limited accuracy, the proposed scaled diagonalization enables stable computations of electromagnetic interactions at arbitrary short distances with respect to wavelength. The effectiveness of the developed implementation is demonstrated on challenging problems involving realistic objects discretized with large...
A MATLAB toolbox for finite element analysis of structures
Kandemir, Volkan; Oral, Süha; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2014)
In this study, an open source program for structural analysis was developed in MATLAB programming environment. Program was organized in object oriented manner by four new developed classes. Moreover, a graphical user interface for the end users was created. Furthermore, eight kinds of element including Plane Truss, Space Truss, Plane Frame, Space Frame, Linear Triangular, Bilinear Quadratic, Linear Tetrahedral and 3 Node Shell elements are ready to use. Elements were qualified by comparing the results obtai...
