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...
Analytical and numerical assessments of boundary variations in Steklov eigenvalue problems
Bahadır, Eylem; Türk, Önder (2023-04-01)
© 2022 Elsevier B.V.In this study, we aim to analyze the effects of several boundary variations on the spectrum of the simplified and generalized Steklov eigenvalue problems (EVPs) in which the spectral parameter resides on the boundary. We mainly focus on assessing the errors that may occur due to the finite element discretization using elements having straight edges to a curved boundary. In this respect, we analytically and numerically analyze the influence of the change in the boundary such as in uniform...
FINITE DIFFERENCE APPROXIMATIONS OF VARIOUS STEKLOV EIGENVALUE PROBLEMS
ÖZALP, MÜCAHİT; Bozkaya, Canan; Türk, Önder; Department of Mathematics (2022-8-26)
In this thesis, the finite difference method (FDM) is employed to numerically solve differently defined Steklov eigenvalue problems (EVPs) that are characterized by the existence of a spectral parameter on the whole or a part of the domain boundary. The FDM approximation of the Laplace EVP is also considered due to the fact that the defining differential operator in a Steklov EVP is the Laplace operator. The fundamentals of FDM are covered and their applications on some BVPs involving Laplace operator are d...
