We consider a fully discrete, efficient algorithm for magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) flow that is based on the Elsasser variable formulation and a timestepping scheme that decouples the MHD system but still provides unconditional stability with respect to the timestep. We prove stability and optimal convergence of the scheme, and also connect the scheme to one based on handling each decoupled system with a penalty-projection method. Numerical experiments are given which verify all predicted convergence rates of our analysis on some analytical test problems, show the results of the scheme on a set of channel flow problems match well the results found when the computation is done with MHD in primitive variable, and finally show the scheme performs well on a channel flow over a step.

Finite bisimulations for switched linear systems
Aydın Göl, Ebru; Lazar, Mircea; Belta, Calin (2013-02-04)
In this paper, we consider the problem of constructing a finite bisimulation quotient for a discrete-time switched linear system in a bounded subset of its state space. Given a set of observations over polytopic subsets of the state space and a switched linear system with stable subsystems, the proposed algorithm generates the bisimulation quotient in a finite number of steps with the aid of sublevel sets of a polyhedral Lyapunov function. Starting from a sublevel set that includes the origin in its interio...

Multi-symplectic integration of coupled non-linear Schrodinger system with soliton solutions
AYDIN, AYHAN; Karasözen, Bülent (2009-01-01)
Systems of coupled non-linear Schrodinger equations with soliton solutions are integrated using the six-point scheme which is equivalent to the multi-symplectic Preissman scheme. The numerical dispersion relations are studied for the linearized equation. Numerical results for elastic and inelastic soliton collisions are presented. Numerical experiments confirm the excellent conservation of energy, momentum and norm in long-term computations and their relations to the qualitative behaviour of the soliton sol...
Numerical Modelling and Experimental Analysis of Vibratory and Acoustics Behaviours of a Special Design Squirrel-Cage Three-Phase Asynchronous Machine
Ionescu, R. M.; Negoita, A.; N'Diaye, A.; Torregrossa, D.; Djerdir, A.; Miraoui, A.; Scutaru, Gh. (2011-09-10)
The paper presents a comparison between the obtained results from testing a special design 5 kW squirrel-cage three-phase asynchronous machine and the numerical model of the same machine, simulated under the FLUX2D Finite Element Software. The aim is to validate the numerical model in the loaded and unloaded cases. The resulting model will be used for further research into the vibratory behaviour and noise of the motor. In this paper, an experimental approach is used to show the influence of load on motor v...
Excessive Memory Usage of the ELLPACK Sparse Matrix Storage Scheme throughout the Finite Element Computations
Akinci, Gokay; YILMAZ, ASIM EGEMEN; Kuzuoğlu, Mustafa (2014-12-01)
Sparse matrices are occasionally encountered during solution of various problems by means of numerical methods, particularly the finite element method ELLPACK sparse matrix storage scheme, one of the most widely used methods due to its implementation ease, is investigated in this study. The scheme uses excessive memory due to its definition. For the conventional finite element method, where the node elements are used, the excessive memory caused by redundant entries in the ELLPACK sparse matrix storage sche...
