A parallel gas-kinetic Bhatnagar-Gross-Krook method for the solution of viscous flows on two-dimensional hybrid grids

In this study, a parallel implementation of gas-kinetic Bhatnagar-Gross-Krook method on two-dimensional hybrid grids is presented. Boundary layer regions in wall bounded viscous flows are discretised with quadrilateral grid cells stretched in the direction normal to the solid surface while the rest of the flow domain is discretised by triangular cells. The parallel solution algorithm on hybrid grids is based on the domain decomposition using METIS, a graph partitioning software. The flow solutions obtained in parallel significantly improve the computation time, a significant deficiency of gas-kinetic methods. Several validation test cases presented show the accuracy and robustness of the method developed.


A variational multiscale constitutive model for nanocrystalline materials
Gürses, Ercan (Elsevier BV, 2011-03-01)
This paper presents a variational multi-scale constitutive model in the finite deformation regime capable of capturing the mechanical behavior of nanocrystalline (nc) fcc metals. The nc-material is modeled as a two-phase material consisting of a grain interior phase and a grain boundary effected zone (GBAZ). A rate-independent isotropic porous plasticity model is employed to describe the GBAZ, whereas a crystal-plasticity model which accounts for the transition from partial dislocation to full dislocation m...
An accurate nonlinear 3d Timoshenko beam element based on Hu-Washizu functional
Soydas, Ozan; Sarıtaş, Afşin (Elsevier BV, 2013-09-01)
An accurate 3d mixed beam element that is efficient especially in nonlinear analysis is presented in this paper. The mathematical theory is based on Hu-Washizu principle that uses three-fields in the variational form. The composition of the variational form ensures independent selection of displacement, stress and strain fields. Timoshenko beam theory is extended to three dimensions for deriving strains from displacement field. Numerical integration of stress strain relations along control sections is carri...
A frequency domain nonparametric identification method for nonlinear structures: Describing surface method
Karaagacli, Taylan; Özgüven, Hasan Nevzat (Elsevier BV, 2020-10-01)
In this paper a new method called 'Describing Surface Method' (DSM) is developed for nonparametric identification of a localized nonlinearity in structural dynamics. The method makes use of the Nonlinearity Matrix concept developed in the past by using classical describing function theory, which assumes that nonlinearity depends mainly on the response amplitude and frequency dependence is negligible for almost all of the standard nonlinear elements. However, this may not always be the case for complex nonli...
An adaptive fully discontinuous Galerkin level set method for incompressible multiphase flows
KARAKUS, Ali; WARBURTON, Tim; AKSEL, MEHMET HALUK; Sert, Cüneyt (Emerald, 2018-01-01)

Two-dimensional transient dynamic response of orthotropic layered media
Abu Alshaikh, Ibrahim; Turhan, Dogan; Mengi, Yalcin (Springer Science and Business Media LLC; 2006-12-01)
In this study, two-dimensional transient dynamic response of orthotropic plane layered media is investigated. The plane multilayered media consist of N different generally orthotropic, homogeneous and linearly elastic layers with different ply angles. In the generally orthotropic layer, representing a ply reinforced by unidirectional fibers with an arbitrary orientation angle, the principal material directions do not coincide with body coordinate axes. The solution is obtained by employing a numerical techn...
