Computational analysis and simulation of multi-physics phenomena taking place in coating systems is still a challenging task. Specifically, for ceramic coatings used as protective systems for base materials against elevated temperatures, known as thermal barrier coating (TBC) systems, construction of continuum level models which can express coupled nonlinear phenomena has attracted great attention. Thermal stresses, oxidation, creep and numerous other mechanisms and phenomena make it even harder to model and simulate the behavior of TBCs and bring a need for the development of premier models. In this effort, a new numerical model that allows simulation of oxidation and thermally grown oxide (TGO) in bond-coat is presented. Phase field theory is used with finite strain formulation and implemented using user element subroutine (UEL) in ABAQUS software for the finite element method. Results are compared with experimental data available for TGO in the literature. Initiation and development of damage were also modeled considering plasticity induced failure. Results were also compared with experimental data available for damage and stress development in isothermal conditions.

Prediction of Nonlinear Drift Demands for Buildings with Recurrent Neural Networks
Kocamaz, Korhan; Binici, Barış; Tuncay, Kağan (2021-09-08)
Application of deep learning algorithms to the problems of structural engineering is an emerging research field. Inthis study, a deep learning algorithm, namely recurrent neural network (RNN), is applied to tackle a problemrelated to the assessment of reinforced concrete buildings. Inter-storey drift ratio profile of a structure is a quiteimportant parameter while conducting assessment procedures. In general, procedures require a series of timeconsuming nonlinear dynamic analysis. In this study, an extensiv...
Computational modeling of electrocardiograms: A finite element approach toward cardiac excitation
Kotikanyadanam, Mohan; Göktepe, Serdar; Kuhl, Ellen (Wiley, 2010-05-01)
The objective of this work is the computational simulation of a patient-specific electrocardiogram (EKG) using a novel, robust, efficient, and modular finite element-based simulation tool for cardiac electrophysiology. We apply a two-variable approach in terms of a fast action potential and a slow recovery variable, whereby the latter phenomenologically summarizes the concentration of ionic currents. The underlying algorithm is based on a staggered solution scheme in which the action potential is introduced...
Computational electro-chemo-mechanics of lithium-ion battery electrodes at finite strains
Dal, Hüsnü (2015-02-01)
A finite strain theory for electro-chemo-mechanics of lithium ion battery electrodes along with a monolithic and unconditionally stable finite element algorithm for the solution of the resulting equation systems is proposed. The chemical concentration and the displacement fields are introduced as independent variables for the formulation diffusion-mechanics coupling. The electrochemistry of the surface reaction kinetics is imposed at the boundary in terms of the Butler-Volmer kinetics. The intrinsic couplin...

Elfarra, Monier A.; Akmandor, I. Sinan; Sezer Uzol, Nilay (2011-03-25)
The main purpose of this paper is to optimize winglet geometry by using CFD with Genetic Algorithm and study its effects on power production. For validation and as a baseline rotor, the NREL Phase VI wind turbine rotor blade is used. The Reynolds-Averaged Navier-Stokes equations are solved and different turbulence models including the Spalart-Allmaras, k-epsilon Launder-Sharma, k-epsilon Yang-Shih and SST k-omega models are used and tested. The results of the power curve and the pressure distribution at dif...
