Multiscale design of nonlinear materials using a shape optimization scheme based on an interface-enriched GFEM (2016-07-28)Motivated by key advances in manufacturing techniques, the tailoring of materials with specific macroscopic properties has been the focus of active research in mechanical engineering and materials science over the past ...
(2001)Numerical and experimental studies are performed to study residual deformation and warpage in a model multilayer circuit board construction of a common composite substrate (7628 fabric style). A numerical procedure based ...
(2001)Several spanwise lengthscales are shown to vary linearly with distance from the wall, revealing self-similar growth of spanwise structure in an average sense. However, inspection of the data suggests individual structures ...
(2001)The circulation cells visualized in the present study are a manifestation, in the fully turbulent regime, of the cellular structures commonly observed at low Rayleigh numbers. The circulation cells are proposed as a physical ...
(2000)In the second case, a coarse finite-volume representation defines the LES scales. Optimal flux models are expressed as modifications of standard fourth-order schemes, so that numerical and subgrid effects are treated ...
