A DRBEM Approach for the STOKES Eigenvalue Problem

2016-07-04
In this study, we propose a novel approach based on the dual reciprocity boundary element method (DRBEM) to approximate the solutions of various Steklov eigenvalue problems. The method consists in weighting the governing differential equation with the fundamental solutions of the Laplace equation where the definition of interior nodes is not necessary for the solution on the boundary. DRBEM constitutes a promising tool to characterize such problems due to the fact that the boundary conditions on part or all of the boundary of the given flow domain depend on the spectral parameter. The matrices resulting from the discretization are partitioned in a novel way to relate the eigenfunction with its flux on the boundary where the spectral parameter resides. The discretization is carried out with the use of constant boundary elements resulting in a generalized eigenvalue problem of moderate size that can be solved at a smaller expense compared to full domain discretization alternatives. We systematically investigate the convergence of the method by several experiments including cases with selfadjoint and non-selfadjoint operators. We present numerical results which demonstrate that the proposed approach is able to efficiently approximate the solutions of various mixed Steklov eigenvalue problems defined on arbitrary domains.

A Rayleigh–Ritz Method for Numerical Solutions of Linear Fredholm Integral Equations of the Second Kind
Kaya, Ruşen; Taşeli, Hasan (2022-01-01)
A Rayleigh–Ritz Method is suggested for solving linear Fredholm integral equations of the second kind numerically in a desired accuracy. To test the performance of the present approach, the classical one-dimensional Schrödinger equation -y″(x)+v(x)y(x)=λy(x),x∈(-∞,∞) has been converted into an integral equation. For a regular problem, the unbounded interval is truncated to x∈ [ - ℓ, ℓ] , where ℓ is regarded as a boundary parameter. Then, the resulting integral equation has been solved and the results are co...
A frequency domain boundary element formulation for dynamic interaction problems in poroviscoelastic media
Argeso, Hakan; Mengi, Yalcin (2014-02-01)
A unified formulation is presented, based on the boundary element method, to perform the interaction analysis for the problems involving poroviscoelastic media. The proposed formulation permits the evaluation of all the elements of impedance and input motion matrices at a single step in terms of system matrices of boundary element method without solving any special problem, such as, unit displacement or load problem, as required by conventional methods. It further eliminates the complicated procedure and th...
A GENERALIZED CORRELATED RANDOM WALK APPROXIMATION TO FRACTIONAL BROWNIAN MOTION
Vardar Acar, Ceren (null; 2018-04-30)
In this study, we mainly propose an algorithm to generate correlated random walk converging to fractional Brownian motion, with Hurst parameter, H∈ [1/2,1]. The increments of this random walk are simulated from Bernoulli distribution with proportion p, whose density is constructed using the link between correlation of multivariate Gaussian random variables and correlation of their dichotomized binary variables. We prove that the normalized sum of trajectories of this proposed random walk yields a Gaussian p...
A Novel Approach for the Efficient Computation of 1-D and 2-D Summations
Karabulut, E. Pinar; ERTÜRK, VAKUR BEHÇET; Alatan, Lale; Karan, S.; Alisan, Burak; Aksun, M. I. (2016-03-01)
A novel computational method is proposed to evaluate 1-D and 2-D summations and integrals which are relatively difficult to compute numerically. The method is based on applying a subspace algorithm to the samples of partial sums and approximating them in terms of complex exponentials. For a convergent summation, the residue of the exponential term with zero complex pole of this approximation corresponds to the result of the summation. Since the procedure requires the evaluation of relatively small number of...
