Aly, Incompressible smoothed particle hydrodynamics simulations of natural convection flow resulting from embedded Y-fin inside Y-shaped enclosure filled with a nanofluid, International Journal of Numerical Methods for Heat and Fluid Flow, 10.1108/HFF-02-2020-0094, 31, 1, 154-173, 2020.05, © 2020, Emerald Publishing Limited. Purpose: The purpose of this study is to apply the incompressible smoothed particle hydrodynamics (ISPH) method to simulate the natural convection flow from an inner heated Y-fin inside Y-shaped enclosure filled with nanofluid. Design/methodology/approach: The dimensionless governing partial differential equations are described in the Lagrangian form and solved by an implicit scheme of the ISPH method. The embedded Y-fin is kept at a high temperature Th with variable heights during the simulations. The lower area of Y-shaped enclosure is squared with width L = 1 m and its side-walls are kept at a low temperature Tc. The upper area of the Y-shaped enclosure is V-shaped with width 0.5 L for each side and its walls are adiabatic. Findings: The performed simulations revealed that the height of the inner heated Y-fin plays an important role in the heat transfer and fluid flow inside the Y-shaped enclosure, where it enhances the heat transfer. Rayleigh number augments the buoyancy force inside the Y-shaped enclosure and, consequently, it has a strong impact on temperature distributions and strength of the fluid flow inside Y-shaped enclosure. Adding more concentration of the nanofluid until 10% has a slight effect on the temperature distributions and it reduces the strength of the fluid flow inside Y-shaped enclosure. In addition, the average Nusselt number is measured along the inner heated Y-fin and it grows as the Rayleigh number increases. The average Nusselt number is decreasing by adding more concentrations of the nanofluid. Originality/value: An improved ISPH method is used to simulate the natural convection flow of Y-fin embedded in the Y-shaped enclosure filled with a nanofluid..

Aly, Zehba Raizah, Mitsuteru Asai, Natural convection from heated fin shapes in a nanofluid-filled porous cavity using incompressible smoothed particle hydrodynamics, International Journal of Numerical Methods for Heat and Fluid Flow, 10.1108/HFF-03-2019-0270, 29, 12, 4569-4597, 2019.12, Purpose: This study aims to focus on the numerical simulation of natural convection from heated novel fin shapes in a cavity filled with nanofluid and saturated with a partial layer of porous medium using improved incompressible smoothed particle hydrodynamics (ISPH) method. Design/methodology/approach: The dimensionless of Lagrangian description for the governing equations were numerically solved using improved ISPH method. The current ISPH method was improved in term of wall boundary treatment by using renormalization kernel function. The effects of different novel heated (Tree, T, H, V, and Z) fin shapes, Rayleigh number Ra, porous height H (0.2-0.6), Darcy parameter and solid volume fraction ϕ(0.0-0.05) on the heat transfer of nanofluid have been investigated. Findings: The results showed that the variation on the heated novel fin shapes gives a suitable choice for enhancement heat transfer inside multi-layer porous cavity. Among all fin shapes, the H-fin shape causes the maximum stream function and Z-fin shape causes the highest value of average Nusselt number. The concentrations of the fluid flows in the nanofluid region depend on the Rayleigh and Darcy parameters. In addition, the penetrations of the fluid flows through porous layers are affected by porous heights and Darcy parameter. Originality/value: Natural convection from novel heated fins in a cavity filled with nanofluid and saturated with a partial layer of porous medium have been investigated numerically using improved ISPH method..

Masao Ogino, Takuya Iwama, Mitsuteru Asai, Development of a Partitioned Coupling Analysis System for Fluid-Structure Interactions Using an In-House ISPH Code and the Adventure System, International Journal of Computational Methods, 10.1142/S0219876218430090, 16, 4, 2019.06, © 2019 World Scientific Publishing Company. In this paper, a partitioned coupling analysis system is developed for a numerical simulation of 3-dimensional fluid-structure interaction (FSI) problems, adopting an incompressible smoothed particle hydrodynamics (SPH) method for fluid dynamics involving free surface flow and the finite element method (FEM) for structural dynamics. A coupling analysis of a particle-based method and a grid-based method has been investigated. However, most of these are developed as a function-specific application software, and therefore lack versatility. Hence, to save cost in software development and maintenance, the open source software is utilized. Especially, a general-purpose finite element analysis system, named ADVENTURE, and a general-purpose coupling analysis platform, named REVOCAP-Coupler, are employed. Moreover, techniques of an interface marker on fluid-structure boundaries and a dummy mesh for fluid analysis domain are adopted to solve the problem that the REVOCAP-Coupler performs to unify two or more grid-based method codes. To verify a developed system, the dam break problem with an elastic obstacle is demonstrated, and the result is compared with the results calculated by the other methods..

After the Great East Japan Earthquake Tsunami, new Tsunami disaster-prevention and mitigation methods for the next millennium Tsunami are actively being discussed. Consequently, the methods have highlighted the importance of both hard disaster-prevention method, which means direct prevention using infrastructure such as breakwater, and soft disaster-prevention method, including disaster-prevention education. In this paper, a visualization and polygonization system that can be effectively utilized for Tsunami disaster prevention is proposed for large-scale particle simulation. The system includes two important features, such as engineering-purposed visualization and polygonization for hard and soft tsunami disaster-prevention methods, respectively. Moreover, the system can handle the large-scale particle simulation data that are computed by a high-performance computer via an offline on-demand tool without data transfer..

The conventional particle simulation method is not easy to solve these huge problem even on the premise of using super-computer. Then, a new particle method 'fully explicit Incompressible SPH' is developed that takes into consideration both calculation efficiency and accuracy.

In 2011, the huge tsunami caused by the great east Japan earthquake devastated many infrastructures in pacific coast of north eastern Japan. Particularly, collapse of bridges caused a traffic disorder and these collapse behaviors led to delay of recovery after the disaster. In this study, the bridge wash away accident is selected as a target issue, and it is represented by a numerical simulation. For this purpose, Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH) Method, which is one of the pure mesh free methods, is utilized for the rigid body motion simulation. In this study, rigid body motion is introduced for the fluid-rigid interaction behavior during bridge wash away simulation. In the numerical analysis, the upper bridge structure is washed away by receiving an impact fluid force. The wash away simulation of two types of the bridge girder showed good agreement with the real accident on the great east Japan earthquake tsunami..

Fluid-Structure-Soil coupling simulation is desired for a systematic comprehension of the breakwater collapse mechanism, and it may help to develop next disaster prevention method. In this study, A particle simulation tool based on the SPH has been modified and improved to analyze seepage flow and soil scouring. In seepage flow analysis, as a first step, this simulation treat the surface flow and seepage flow interactions by using governing equation. In the scouring analysis, soil scour is judged by an empirical criteria based on quicksand quantity formula..

Aly, Mitsuteru Asai, Incompressible smoothed particle hydrodynamics simulations of fluid-structure interaction on free surface flows, International Journal of Fluid Mechanics Research, 10.1615/InterJFluidMechRes.v41.i6.10, 41, 6, 471-484, 2014.01, In this paper, fluid-structure interaction (FSI) on free surface flows has been simulated using ISPH method. The governing equations are discretized and solved with respect to Lagrangian moving particles filled within the mesh-free computational domain and the pressure was evaluated by solving pressure Poisson equation using a semi-implicit algorithm based on the projection scheme to ensure divergence free velocity field and density invariance conditions. In this study, the structure is taken as a rigid body and it modeled using ISPH method by two different techniques. In the first technique, the solid particles are treated initially as fluid particles and after corrector step in projection method, the solid constraint is applied to get the rigid body motion. In the second technique, we computed the motions of a rigid body by direct integration of fluid pressure at the position of each particle on the body surface. Then, the equations of translational and rotational motions were integrated in time to update the position of the rigid body at each time step. The applicability and efficiency of current ISPH method with the two different treatment of rigid body are tested by comparison with reference experimental results..

In addition, a small modification in the source term of pressure Poisson equation has been introduced as a stabilizer for robust simulations. This stabilization generates a smoothed pressure distribution and keeps the total volume of fluid, and it is analogous to the recent modification in MPS. Design/methodology/ approach - The surface tension force in free surface flow is evaluated without a direct modeling of surrounding air for decreasing computational costs. The proposed model was validated by calculating the surface tension force in the free surface interface for a cubic-droplet under null-gravity and the milk crown problem with different resolution models. Finally, effects of the eddy viscosity have been discussed with a fluid-fluid interaction simulation. Findings - From the numerical tests, the surface tension model can handle free surface tension problems including high curvature without special treatments. The eddy viscosity has clear effects in adjusting the splashes and reduces the deformation of free surface in the interaction. Finally, the proposed stabilization appeared in the source term of pressure Poisson equation has an important role in the simulation to keep the total volume of fluid. Originality/value - An incompressible smoothed particle hydrodynamics is developed to simulate milk crown problem using a surface tension model and the eddy viscosity..

30. Coupling simulator between chemical diffusion and crack propagation by a Voxel FEM incorporated with the Damage Mechanics
Alkali Silica Reaction (ASR), chloride damage of reinforced steel and other aging degradations in concrete structures are strongly dependent on both of chemical phenomena and mechanical behavior including fracture. In this study, a coupling simulator has been developed in order to investigate the degradation mechanism of these concrete aging damages. In the coupling simulator, non-stationary diffusion analysis for Alkali ion is solved firstly, and then the expansion force act on the aggregate is evaluated by referring consistency of the alkali ion. In the second step, nonlinear damage analysis is conducted. The nonlinear damage analysis evaluates cracking region with the damage parameter. The following diffusion analysis changes diffusion coefficient in the cracking region by referring the damage parameter. The above procedures are coupled at each time step. © 2013 by the Japan Society for Computational Engineering and Science..
31. Slip and no-slip boundary treatment for particle simulation model with incompatible step-shaped boundaries by using a virtual maker
Particle method such as Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH) and Moving Particle Semi-implicit method (MPS) can handle quite complicated physical problems involving dynamic changes of free surface and crack propagation, and it is wildly expanding its applications not only in the fluid dynamics but also in the solid mechanics. Beside of these advantages, particle methods are not so easy to treat boundary conditions, like pressure Neumann condition and slip or no-slip condition in fluid dynamics. This is one of the typical difficulties in mesh-less type method. In addition, particle simulation model may include an incompatible step-shaped boundary line, which is made by using a simple pre-processing of particle model. Although the simple and robust pre-processing is one of the advantage of particle simulation, the step-shaped boundary may generate un-realistic numerical solution across the real boundary line especially in the fluid dynamics. Recently, pressure Neumann condition in SPH is re-focused with fixed ghost boundary method using virtual makers. In this paper, the fixed ghost boundary method is modified to treat the incompatible step-shaped boundary particles by referring the real physical boundary line. The accuracy and efficiencies of proposed method are validated by comparison between a numerical solution and experimental results. © 2013 by the Japan Society for Computational Engineering and Science..

46. Constitutive modeling for texture reinforced rubber by using an anisotropic visco-hyperelastic model
Fabric reinforced rubber shows an anisotropy and viscosity in wide strain range. In this paper, an anisotropic visco-elastic model based on Mooney-Rivlin model is developed for fabric reinforced rubber. Anisotropy is introduced, in this constitutive model, by using a structure tensor that shows direction of reinforced fiber. A new strain energy density function for anisotropic elasticity is proposed to improve accuracy associated with shear behaviors. After developing an elastic model, an anisotropic viscosity is modeled by a kind of Maxwell viscosity model at large strains. In addition to the development of constitutive model, a simple fracture prediction method, which refers to the finite element solution incorpolated with our proposed constitutive model, is proposed. Finally, our proposed constitutive model and fracture prediction method are validated with comparisons of uni-axial tension tests with fabric reinforced rubber..

The system matrix of piezoelectric FE analysis has negative eigenvalues because of coupling terms between mechanical and electrical fields. A general preconditioned iterative solver is ineffective for large-scale piezoelectric FE analysis due to the indefinite system matrix. A block diagonal preconditioner for the piezoelectric finite element method (FEM) is proposed by grouping nodal values as a block. Then the proposed solver is applied to the homogenization method, which can evaluate the effective macroscopic material properties by using FEM. In the FE modelling of complex microstructures, a semi-automatic technique with nondestructive observation provides reasonable 3D micrographs of porous Pb(Zr, Ti)O-3 (PZT). The efficiency of the proposed solver is investigated through the homogenization analysis of real porous PZT samples..

The material is characterized by crystal plasticity constitutive relations. The finite element formulation of the initial boundary-value problems with cyclic loading involves decoupling the governing equations into two sets of problems corresponding to two different time-scales. One is a long-time-scale (low-frequency) problem characterizing a cycle-averaged solution, while the other is a short-time-scale (high-frequency) problem for a remaining oscillatory portion. Cyclic averaging together with asymptotic expansion of the variables in the time domain forms the basis of the multitime-scaling. The crystal plasticity equations at the two scales are used to study cyclic deformation of a titanium alloy Ti-6Al. This model is intended to study the fatigue response of a material by simulating a large number of cycles to initiation..

60. Image-Based Multi-Scale Analysis for Porous Piezoelectric Materials Based on the Homogenization Method
This paper presents an image-based multi-scale analysis in order to evaluate macroscopic properties of heterogeneous porous piezoelectric materials by finite element calculations. The multi-scale analysis is based on the mathematical homogenization theory. Material heterogeneity is represented as a micro structure FE model that is automatically generated from the cross-sectioned images by high resolution X-ray CT. The high resolution X-ray measurement for porous PZT is compared with the digital image of SEM. Radius of pore is quantified from their images to compare these images. Nodal blocking preconditioned iterative solver is developed for piezoelectric FEM with high degree of freedom. In the numerical examples, material properties of porous PZT materials with different porosity are evaluated by the image-based multi-scale analysis to show the applicability and efficiency. Image-based multi-scale analysis with one million elements can be conducted by conventional PC with help of the proposed iterative solver..

62. Multi-Scale Stress Analysis of Trabecular Bone Considering Trabeculae Morphology and Biological Apatite Crystallite Orientation
This paper presents the multi-scale stress analysis of trabecular bone by the homogenization method bridging nano-micro-macro scales. Three-dimensional microstructure of trabeculae is obtained by the X-ray CT and the image-based modeling technique. Biological apatite (BAp) crystallite orientation is considered in the microstructure model by means of the anisotropic mechanical properties. The c-axis of BAp is set up as the maximum principal stress direction under the long term macroscopic stress condition. These properties are automatically assigned to each voxel element. To determine appropriately the microstructure model, the trabeculae morphology is analyzed and quantified as the trabecular density distribution. The proposed method is applied to pig's femur. It was revealed by the morphology analysis and homogenized macroscopic properties that the trabecular bone has plate-like characteristics. The predicted anisotropic level of the macroscopic properties was quantitatively coincident with the measured value by the X-ray diffraction analysis..

69. A NON-LOCAL VOXEL FINITE ELEMENT METHOD AND ITS APPLICATION TO FAILURE ANALYSES
A non-local voxel FEM is developed for simulating the failure phenomena of heterogeneous brittle materials. The micro-scale or meso-scale morphology of heterogeneous materials is realized by the image-based modeling technique, whereas the cracking is simulated by the element vanish technique. Also, the nonlocal technique of integral-averaging type is effectively utilized to avoid both the stress oscillation errors on the material interfaces and the spurious dependency on the voxel size for crack propagation problems. The three-dimensional numerical simulations successfully demonstrate the cracking phenomena induced by the micro-scale heterogeneities and the so-called biaxial effect that is typical in the strength characteristics of concrete..

The name 'FCM' is actually an alias for the manifold method (MM) and the basic idea of the method has already been established for linear analyses of structures with homogeneous materials. After reviewing the concept of physical and mathematical covers for approximating functions in the FCM, we present the formulation for the static equilibrium state of a structure with arbitrary physical boundaries including material interfaces. The problem essentially involves the discontinuities in strains, and possibly has the discontinuities in displacement caused by interfacial debonding or rupture of material interfaces. We simulate such non-linear mechanical behaviour after presenting simple numerical examples that demonstrate the equivalence between the approximation capabilities of the FCM and those of the FEM.
