Ayranci, I
Selçuk, Nevin
A methodology based on the method of lines solution of discrete ordinates method for solution of the 3-D transient radiative transfer equation is introduced. The method is applied to the prediction of transient and steady state transmittances in a cubical enclosure containing purely scattering medium and validated against Monte Carlo solutions from the literature. The flexibility of the method for implementation of linear spatial differencing schemes, flux limiters and weighted essentially non-oscillatory methods is demonstrated. Van Leer flux limiter is found to provide stable, accurate and efficient solutions.


Transient simulation of radiating flows
Selçuk, Nevin; Ayranci, I; Tarhan, T (2005-06-01)
Time-dependent Navier-Stokes equations are solved in conjunction with the radiative transfer equation by coupling a previously developed direct numerical simulation-based computational fluid dynamics code to an existing radiation code, both based on the method of lines approach. The temperature profiles predicted by the coupled code are validated against steady-state solutions available in the literature for laminar, axisymmetric, hydrodynamically developed flow of a gray, absorbing, emitting fluid in a hea...
Numerical Solution of Multi-scale Electromagnetic Boundary Value Problems by Utilizing Transformation-Based Metamaterials
Ozgun, Ozlem; Kuzuoğlu, Mustafa (2011-06-23)
We present numerical solution techniques for efficiently handling multi-scale electromagnetic boundary value problems having fine geometrical details or features, by utilizing spatial coordinate transformations. The principle idea is to modify the computational domain of the finite methods (such as the finite element or finite difference methods) by suitably placing anisotropic metamaterial structures whose material parameters are obtained by coordinate transformations, and hence, to devise easier and effic...
Recursive Two-Way Parabolic Equation Approach for Modeling Terrain Effects in Tropospheric Propagation
Ozgun, Ozlem (2009-09-01)
The Fourier split-step method is a one-way marching-type algorithm to efficiently solve the parabolic equation for modeling electromagnetic propagation in troposphere. The main drawback of this method is that it characterizes only forward-propagating waves, and neglects backward-propagating waves, which become important especially in the presence of irregular surfaces. Although ground reflecting boundaries are inherently incorporated into the split-step algorithm, irregular surfaces (such as sharp edges) in...
Multiscale Modeling of Thin-Wire Coupling Problems Using Hybridization of Finite Element and Dipole Moment Methods and GPU Acceleration
ÖZGÜN, ÖZLEM; Mittra, Raj; Kuzuoğlu, Mustafa (2020-01-01)
In this article, a hybrid numerical method, called finite element method (FEM) + dipole moment (DM), is presented for efficient solution of multiscale electromagnetic radiation and scattering problems that involve structures with fine features, such as thin-wire antennas or objects. In this method, the FEM is hybridized with the DM approach to help ease certain computational burdens, such as mesh refinement, ill-conditioning, memory overload, and long computation times, when solving multiscale problems with...
Efficient Computation of Green's Functions for Multilayer Media in the Context of 5G Applications
Mittra, Raj; Özgün, Özlem; Li, Chao; Kuzuoğlu, Mustafa (2021-03-22)
This paper presents a novel method for effective computation of Sommerfeld integrals which arise in problems involving antennas or scatterers embedded in planar multilayered media. Sommerfeld integrals that need to be computed in the evaluation of spatial-domain Green's functions are often highly oscillatory and slowly decaying. For this reason, standard numerical integration methods are not efficient for such integrals, especially at millimeter waves. The main motivation of the proposed method is to comput...
