Questioning Degree of Accuracy Offered by the Spectral Element Method in Computational Electromagnetics
Mahariq, I.; KURT, HAMZA; Kuzuoğlu, Mustafa (2015-07-01)
In this paper, a comparison amongst the spectral element method (SEM), the finite difference method (FDM), and the first-order finite element method (FEM) is presented. For the sake of consistency, the comparison is carried out on one-dimensional and two-dimensional boundary value problems based on the same measure of error in order to emphasize on the high accuracy gained by the SEM. Then, the deterioration in the accuracy of the SEM due to the elemental deformation is demonstrated. Following this, we try ...
Least-squares spectral element solution of incompressible Navier-Stokes equations with adaptive refinement
Ozcelikkale, Altug; Sert, Cüneyt (2012-05-01)
Least-squares spectral element solution of steady, two-dimensional, incompressible flows are obtained by approximating velocity, pressure and vorticity variable set on GaussLobatto-Legendre nodes. Constrained Approximation Method is used for h- and p-type nonconforming interfaces of quadrilateral elements. Adaptive solutions are obtained using a posteriori error estimates based on least squares functional and spectral coefficient. Effective use of p-refinement to overcome poor mass conservation drawback of ...
MUTUAL COUPLING EFFECTS OF FINITE RECTANGULAR PHASED-ARRAYS
YAVUZ, H; BUYUKDURA, OM (1994-04-14)
A rigorous integral equation formulation for the analysis of a phased array of flangemounted waveguide apertures is given for a finite number of elements and nonuniform spacings. The resulting set of ihtegrd equations is reduced to a matrix equation called the coupling matrix which relates the coefficients of all the modes in all the waveguides to one another. The solution then yields the dominant mode reflection coefficient, coefficients of scattered modes and hence the field in each waveguide. The blockTo...
Least-squares finite element solution of Euler equations with adaptive mesh refinement
Akargün, Hayri Yiğit; Sert, Cüneyt; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2012)
Least-squares finite element method (LSFEM) is employed to simulate 2-D and axisymmetric flows governed by the compressible Euler equations. Least-squares formulation brings many advantages over classical Galerkin finite element methods. For non-self-adjoint systems, LSFEM result in symmetric positive-definite matrices which can be solved efficiently by iterative methods. Additionally, with a unified formulation it can work in all flight regimes from subsonic to supersonic. Another advantage is that, the me...
Development of cartesian based mesh generator with body fitted boundary layers
Özkan, Merve; Aksel, Mehmet Haluk.; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2019)
In this thesis, the development of a Cartesian based mesh generator with body-fitted boundary layer is presented. The base of the developed mesh generator consists of Cartesian mesh. However, the boundary layer handling is a challenge with Cartesian mesh. Therefore, a body-fitted boundary layer is introduced to the mesh generator by putting a customized open source mesh generator into the main Cartesian based mesh generation. The boundary layer mesh generation part comes from the customized SUMO code, which...
