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 ...
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...
Incompressible flow simulations using least squares spectral element method on adaptively refined triangular grids
Akdağ, Osman; Sert, Cüneyt; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2012)
The main purpose of this study is to develop a flow solver that employs triangular grids to solve two-dimensional, viscous, laminar, steady, incompressible flows. The flow solver is based on Least Squares Spectral Element Method (LSSEM). It has p-type adaptive mesh refinement/coarsening capability and supports p-type nonconforming element interfaces. To validate the developed flow solver several benchmark problems are studied and successful results are obtained. The performances of two different triangular ...
Dynamic frictional contact problems involving functionally graded materials
Balcı, Mehmet Nurullah; Dağ, Serkan; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2018)
The main aim of this study is to analyze the dynamic frictional contact problem of layered and functionally graded materials. Investigating contact problems including dynamic effects has a significant importance in mechanical engineering applications since many contact problems arise between moving structures. In moving contact problems, speed of the punch may not be so small to ignore dynamic effects. Hence, contact problem should be examined using elastodynamics theory. In this study, both frictional movi...
Investigation of missiles with strake fins and reduction of aerodynamic cross coupling effects by optimization
Usta, Engin; Tuncer, İsmail Hakkı; Department of Aerospace Engineering (2015)
Missiles with very low aspect ratio fins (also called strakes) are generally difficult to model by using engineering level aerodynamic methods and linear theories break due to complex nature of the flow adjacent to the mutual interference of the body and fin. Since fast prediction methods cannot accurately model vortex development along and downstream of very low aspect ratio fins, they have limited success for application to missiles with strake fins. Moreover, there is limited number of CFD studies for in...
