Dynamics of submerged shells of arbitrary geometry using improved transmitting boundaries

Akkas, N
Tuncay, Kağan
The dynamics of shells of arbitrary geometry submerged in an acoustic medium has attracted attention for many decades. Only a finite region of the finite fluid domain can be modelled in the numerical analysis. The artificial surface encompassing the finite region is called the truncation surface, on which the transmitting boundary condition is used. The classical plane wave, cylindrical wave and spherical wave approximations are the first generation approximations. The residual variable method has made it possible to develop second generation improved transmitting boundary conditions in Cartesian, cylindrical and spherical coordinates. A general purpose finite element program, in which both the classical and improved transmitting boundary conditions have been incorporated, has been coded and verified. The response of a point excited submerged ellipsoidal shell is studied. The ellipsoidal shell is enclosed in a spherical truncation surface. The numerical results on the apex deflection are presented and they are compared with that of the spherical shell. (C) 1997 Civil-Comp Ltd and Elsevier Science Ltd.


Surface response of a viscoelastic medium to subsurface acoustic sources with application to medical diagnosis
Royston, Thomas J.; Yazıcıoğlu, Yiğit; Loth, Francis (Acoustical Society of America (ASA), 2003-02-01)
The response at the surface of an isotropic viscoelastic medium to buried fundamental acoustic sources is, studied theoretically, computationally and experimentally. Finite and infinitesimal monopole and. dipole sources within the low audible frequency range (40-400 Hz) are considered. Analytical and numerical integral solutions that account for compression, shear and surface wave response to the, buried sources are formulated and compared with numerical finite element simulations and, experimental studies ...
Mechanical properties comparison of strut-based and triply periodic minimal surface lattice structures produced by electron beam melting
Sokollu, Baris; Gulcan, Orhan; Konukseven, Erhan İlhan (2022-12-01)
The aim of this study is to make a comparative assessment of the compression and tensile behavior of two strut -based (body-centered cubic, BCC, and face-centered cubic, FCC) and three triply periodic minimum surfaces (gyroid, primitive, diamond) lattice structures produced by electron beam melting method from Ti6Al4V powder material. Compression and tension tests were performed and compared with finite element analysis results. Moreover, scanning electron microscope analysis for dimensional variation and o...
design and implementation of a two-axes linear positioning system for rapid prototyping applications
Yazıcıoğlu, Faruk; Söylemez, Erses; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2007)
In this study, a two axes linear positioning system for testing and applying different rapid prototyping techniques was designed and manufactured. A cable/ pulley mechanism is utilized in the system for transmitting motion from motors into linear motion. Use of a cable/ pulley mechanism overcomes the problems resulting from the utilization of conventional drive systems like ball screws and decreases the overall cost of the system. The carriage elements of both axes were designed and manufactured by using in...
Characteristics of free overfall for supercritical flows
Tokyay, Nuray (2007-02-01)
The characteristics of supercritical flow at a vertical drop in a rectangular channel are studied experimentally to obtain information that would be valuable to designers of hydraulic structures. The relationship between the ratio of brink depth to the depth of upstrearn supercritical flow (i.e., end-depth ratio) and the Froude number is determined. Downstream from the vertical drop, the physical characteristics of the failing jet are examined, such as the height of the standing water behind the jet, the ma...
Near-field scanning in the time domain on a spherical surface - A formulation using the free-space Green's function
Koc, S; Aydın Çivi, Hatice Özlem; Buyukdura, OM (2001-10-01)
Two formulations for determining the characteristics of an unknown source of acoustic waves using the measurement of its field at its near zone are presented. The measurement in both cases is to be performed on a spherical scan surface which encapsulates the source. The first is for an ideal probe which measures the field at its location. The knowledge of the field is sufficient; its normal derivative is not required. In the second formulation a realistic probe is considered. This time it is required only t...
