Almost all schemes existed in the literature to solve the Lattice Boltzmann Equation like stream & collide, finite difference, finite element, finite volume schemes are explicit. However, it is known fact that implicit methods utilizes better stability and faster convergence compared to the explicit methods. In this paper, a method named herein as Implicit Finite Volume Lattice BoltzmannMethod (IFVLBM) for incompressible laminar and turbulent flows is proposed and it is applied to some 2D benchmark test cases given in the literature. Alternating Direction Implicit, an approximate factorization method is used to solve the obtained algebraic system. The proposed method presents a very good agreement for all the validation cases with the literature data. The proposed method shows good stability characteristics, the CFL number is eased. IFVLBM has about 2 times faster convergence rate compared with Implicit-Explicit Runge Kutta method even though it possesses a computational burden from the solution of algebraic systems of equations.


A Navier-Stokes Solver for Compressible Turbulent Flows on Quadtree and Octree Based Cartesian Grids
Kara, E.; Kutlar, A. İ.; Aksel, M. H.; null, null (Academic World Research, 2019-3-1)
Cartesian grids represent a special extent in unstructured grid literature. They employ chiefly created algorithms to produce automatic meshing while simulating flows around complex geometries without considering shape of the bodies. In this article, firstly, it is intended to produce regionally developed Cartesian meshes for two dimensional and three dimensional, disordered geometries to provide solutions hierarchically. Secondly, accurate results for turbulent flows are developed by finite volume solv...
A Modal Superposition Method for the Analysis of Nonlinear Systems
Ferhatoglu, Erhan; Ciğeroğlu, Ender; Özgüven, Hasan Nevzat (2016-01-28)
In the determination of response of nonlinear structures, computational burden is always a major problem even if frequency domain methods are used. One of the methods used to decrease the computational effort is the modal superposition method for nonlinear systems where the modes of the linear system are used in the calculation. However, depending on the type of the nonlinearity, in order to obtain an accurate response, the number of modes retained in the response calculations needs to be increased, which i...
A parallel sparse algorithm targeting arterial fluid mechanics computations
Manguoğlu, Murat; Sameh, Ahmed H.; Tezduyar, Tayfun E. (2011-09-01)
Iterative solution of large sparse nonsymmetric linear equation systems is one of the numerical challenges in arterial fluid-structure interaction computations. This is because the fluid mechanics parts of the fluid + structure block of the equation system that needs to be solved at every nonlinear iteration of each time step corresponds to incompressible flow, the computational domains include slender parts, and accurate wall shear stress calculations require boundary layer mesh refinement near the arteria...
A Fourier-Bessel expansion for solving radial Schrodinger equation in two dimensions
Taşeli, Hasan (Wiley, 1997-02-15)
The spectrum of the two-dimensional Schrodinger equation for polynomial oscillators bounded by infinitely high potentials, where the eigenvalue problem is defined on a finite interval r is an element of [0, L), is variationally studied. The wave function is expanded into a Fourier-Bessel series, and matrix elements in terms of integrals involving Bessel functions are evaluated analytically. Numerical results presented accurate to 30 digits show that, by the time L approaches a critical value, the tow-lying ...
A coupled numerical scheme of dual reciprocity BEM with DQM for the transient elastodynamic problems
Bozkaya, Canan (Wiley, 2008-11-12)
The two-dimensional transient elastodynamic problems are solved numerically by using the coupling of the dual reciprocity boundary element method (DRBEM) in spatial domain with the differential quadrature method (DQM) in time domain. The DRBEM with the fundamental solution of the Laplace equation transforms the domain integrals into the boundary integrals that contain the first- and the second-order time derivative terms. Thus, the application of DRBEM to elastodynamic problems results in a system of second...
