A new boundary element formulation for wave load analysis

Yalcin, O. Fatih
Mengi, Yalcin
A new boundary element (BEM) formulation is proposed for wave load analysis of submerged or floating bodies. The presented formulation, through establishing an impedance relation, permits the evaluation of the hydrodynamic coefficients (added mass and damping coefficients) and the coefficients of wave exciting forces systematically in terms of system matrices of BEM without solving any special problem, such as, unit velocity or unit excitation problem. It also eliminates the need for scattering analysis in the evaluation of wave exciting forces. The imaginary and real parts of impedance matrix give, respectively, added mass and damping matrices whose elements describe the fluid resistance against the motion of the body. The formulation is explained through the use of a simple fluid-solid system under wave excitations, which involves a uniform fluid layer containing a solid cylindrical body. In the formulation, the solid body is taken first as deformable, then, it is specialized when it is rigid. The validity of the proposed method is verified by comparing its result with those available in literature for rigid submerged or floating bodies.


A finite element variational multiscale method for the Navier-Stokes equations
Volker, John; Kaya Merdan, Songül (Society for Industrial & Applied Mathematics (SIAM), 2005-01-01)
This paper presents a variational multiscale method (VMS) for the incompressible Navier-Stokes equations which is defined by a large scale space L-H for the velocity deformation tensor and a turbulent viscosity nu(T). The connection of this method to the standard formulation of a VMS is explained. The conditions on L-H under which the VMS can be implemented easily and efficiently into an existing finite element code for solving the Navier - Stokes equations are studied. Numerical tests with the Smagorinsky ...
Modeling of dislocation-grain boundary interactions in a strain gradient crystal plasticity framework
ÖZDEMİR, İZZET; Yalçınkaya, Tuncay (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2014-08-01)
This paper focuses on the continuum scale modeling of dislocation-grain boundary interactions and enriches a particular strain gradient crystal plasticity formulation (convex counter-part of Yal double dagger inkaya et al., J Mech Phys Solids 59:1-17, 2011; Int J Solids Struct 49:2625-2636, 2012) by incorporating explicitly the effect of grain boundaries on the plastic slip evolution. Within the framework of continuum thermodynamics, a consistent extension of the model is presented and a potential type non-...
A nested iterative scheme for computation of incompressible flows in long domains
Manguoğlu, Murat; Tezduyar, Tayfun E.; Sathe, Sunil (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2008-12-01)
We present an effective preconditioning technique for solving the nonsymmetric linear systems encountered in computation of incompressible flows in long domains. The application category we focus on is arterial fluid mechanics. These linear systems are solved using a nested iterative scheme with an outer Richardson scheme and an inner iteration that is handled via a Krylov subspace method. Test computations that demonstrate the robustness of our nested scheme are presented.
A phase-field model for fracture of unidirectional fiber-reinforced polymer matrix composites
Denli, Funda Aksu; Gultekin, Osman; Holzapfel, Gerhard A.; Dal, Hüsnü (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2020-04-01)
This study presents a crack phase-field approach for anisotropic continua to model, in particular, fracture of fiber-reinforced matrix composites. Starting with the variational formulation of the multi-field problem of fracture in terms of the deformation and the crack phase fields, the governing equations feature the evolution of the anisotropic crack phase-field and the balance of linear momentum, presented for finite and small strains. A recently proposed energy-based anisotropic failure criterion is inc...
Nonlocal operators with local boundary conditions in higher dimensions
Aksoylu, Burak; Celiker, Fatih; Kilicer, Orsan (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2019-02-01)
We present novel nonlocal governing operators in 2D/3D for wave propagation and diffusion. The operators are inspired by peridynamics. They agree with the original peridynamics operator in the bulk of the domain and simultaneously enforce local boundary conditions (BC). The main ingredients are periodic, antiperiodic, and mixed extensions of separable kernel functions together with even and odd parts of bivariate functions on rectangular/box domains. The operators are bounded and self-adjoint. We present al...
