Projection based variational multiscale (VMS) methods are a very successful technique in the numerical simulation of high Reynolds number flow problems using coarse discretizations. However, their implementation into an existing (legacy) codes can be very challenging in practice. We propose a second order variant of projection-based VMS method for non-isothermal flow problems. The method adds stabilization as a decoupled post-processing step for both velocity and temperature, and thus can be efficiently and easily used with existing codes. In this work, we propose the algorithm and give numerical results for convergence rates tests and coarse mesh simulation of Marsigli flow.


Rigorous optimizations of three dimensional antenna arrays using full wave simulations
Onol, Can; Gokce, Ozer; Boyacı, Huseyın; Ergül, Özgür Salih (null; 2015-07-09)
We present optimizations of three-dimensional antenna arrays using heuristic techniques coupled with the multilevel fast multipole algorithm (MLFMA). Without resorting to any periodicity and infinity assumptions, antenna arrays are modeled with surface integral equations and simulated via MLFMA, which also enables the analysis of arrays with non-identical elements. Genetic algorithms and particle swarm optimization methods are employed on the complex data produced by MLFMA in phasor domain to find optimal s...
Numerical methods for multiphysics flow problems
Belenli Akbaş, Mine; Kaya Merdan, Songül; Rebholz, Leo G.; Department of Mathematics (2016)
In this dissertation, efficient and reliable numerical algorithms for approximating solutions of multiphysics flow problems are investigated by using numerical methods. The interaction of multiple physical processes makes the systems complex, and two fundamental difficulties arise when attempting to obtain numerical solutions of these problems: the need for algorithms that reduce the problems into smaller pieces in a stable and accurate way and for large (sometimes intractable) amount of computational resou...

In this paper, we propose a Multiple Description Coding (MDC) method for reliable transmission of compressed time consistent 3D dynamic meshes. It trades off reconstruction quality for error resilience to provide the best expected reconstruction of 3D mesh sequence at the decoder side. The method is based on partitioning the mesh vertices into two sets and encoding each set independently by a 3D dynamic mesh coder. The encoded independent bitstreams or so-called descriptions are transmitted independently. T...
Broadband Multilevel Fast Multipole Algorithm Based on an Approximate Diagonalization of the Green's Function
Ergül, Özgür Salih (2015-07-01)
We present a broadband multilevel fast multipole algorithm (MLFMA) for fast and efficient solutions of three-dimensional multiscale problems involving large objects with dense discretizations. The proposed solver is based on the approximate diagonalization of the Green's function using scaled spherical and plane waves, leading to stable interaction computations for arbitrarily short distances in terms of wavelength. Despite contradictory requirements on the scaling factor that limit the accuracy of the diag...
Computational Electromagnetic Analysis of Deformed Nanowires Using the Multilevel Fast Multipole Algorithm
Yilmaz, Akif; Karaosmanoglu, Bariscan; Ergül, Özgür Salih (2015-02-16)
We consider computational analysis of deformed nanowires and their arrays using a full-wave simulation environment based on integral-equation formulations and the multilevel fast multipole algorithm (MLFMA). Without requiring any periodicity assumptions, MLFMA allows for fast and accurate simulations of complex nanowire structures with three-dimensional geometries and random deformations. We present the results of hundreds of simulations, where deformed nanowires are considered as isolated, as well as in ar...
