  • Coiflet solution of strongly nonlinear p -Laplacian equations
    • Abstract: A new boundary extension technique based on the Lagrange interpolating polynomial is proposed and used to solve the function approximation defined on an interval by a series of scaling Coiflet functions, where the coefficients are used as the single-point samplings. The obtained approximation formula can exactly represent any polynomials defined on the interval with the order up to one third of the length of the compact support of the adopted Coiflet function. Based on the Galerkin method, a Coiflet-based solution procedure is established for general two-dimensional p-Laplacian equations, following which the equations can be discretized into a concise matrix form. As examples of applications, the proposed modified wavelet Galerkin method is applied to three typical p-Laplacian equations with strong nonlinearity. The numerical results justify the efficiency and accuracy of the method.

  • Numerical simulation based on three-dimensional model of inner stereocilia
    • Abstract: A three-dimensional inner stereocilium model is established by PATRAN. According to the relevant data, the corresponding pressure is applied to one side of the inner stereocilia. The top displacement of the inner stereocilia along the cross section of the basilar membrane (the x-displacement) is similar to the available data in the literature, which verifies the correctness of the model. Based on Castigliano’s theorem, the displacement of a single stereocilium is achieved under the inverted triangle force. The results are in good agreement with the data obtained from the finite element (FE) model, which confirms the validity of the formula. With the FE model, the effects of the movement of the hair cells and fluid in the cochlear duct on the x-displacements of the inner stereocilia are studied. The results show that the movement of the hair cells affects the x-displacements of the inner stereocilia, especially for the shortest stereocilium, and the fluid in the cochlear duct affects the x-displacements of the inner stereocilia, especially for the middle stereocilium. Moreover, compared with the effects of the hair cells on the stereocilia, the effect of the cochlear duct fluid is greater.

  • Melting heat and thermal radiation effects in stretched flow of an
           Oldroyd-B fluid
    • Abstract: The incompressible flow of a non-Newtonian fluid with mixed convection along a stretching sheet is analyzed. The heat transfer phenomenon is discussed through thermal radiation. The effects of the melting heat transfer and heat generation/absorption are also taken. Suitable transformations are utilized to attain the nonlinear ordinary differential expressions. The convergent series solutions are presented. The fluid flow, temperature, and surface heat transfer rate are examined graphically. It is observed that the velocity decreases when the relaxation time increases while increases when the retardation time is constant. The results also reveal that the temperature distribution reduces when the radiation parameter increases.

  • Integration of a nonlinear energy sink and a piezoelectric energy
    • Abstract: A mechanical-piezoelectric system is explored to reduce vibration and to harvest energy. The system consists of a piezoelectric device and a nonlinear energy sink (NES), which is a nonlinear oscillator without linear stiffness. The NES-piezoelectric system is attached to a 2-degree-of-freedom primary system subjected to a shock load. This mechanical-piezoelectric system is investigated based on the concepts of the percentages of energy transition and energy transition measure. The strong target energy transfer occurs for some certain transient excitation amplitude and NES nonlinear stiffness. The plots of wavelet transforms are used to indicate that the nonlinear beats initiate energy transitions between the NES-piezoelectric system and the primary system in the transient vibration, and a 1:1 transient resonance capture occurs between two subsystems. The investigation demonstrates that the integrated NES-piezoelectric mechanism can reduce vibration and harvest some vibration energy.

  • Temperature stress analysis for bi-modulus beam placed on Winkler
    • Abstract: The materials with different moduli in tension and compression are called bi-modulus materials. Graphene is such a kind of materials with the highest strength and the thinnest thickness. In this paper, the mechanical response of the bi-modulus beam subjected to the temperature effect and placed on the Winkler foundation is studied. The differential equations about the neutral axis position and undetermined parameters of the normal strain of the bi-modulus foundation beam are established. Then, the analytical expressions of the normal stress, bending moment, and displacement of the foundation beam are derived. Simultaneously, a calculation procedure based on the finite element method (FEM) is developed to obtain the temperature stress of the bi-modulus structures. It is shown that the obtained bi-modulus solutions can recover the classical modulus solution, and the results obtained by the analytical expressions, the present FEM procedure, and the traditional FEM software are consistent, which verifies the accuracy and reliability of the present analytical model and procedure. Finally, the difference between the bi-modulus results and the classical same modulus results is discussed, and several reasonable suggestions for calculating and optimizing the certain bi-modulus member in practical engineering are presented.

  • Extension of e N method to general three-dimensional boundary layers
    • Abstract: In order to extend the e N method to general three-dimensional boundary layers, the conservation law of the imaginary parts for the wave parameters with a fixed wave vector is deduced. The compatibility relationship (CR) and the general theory of ray tracing (RT), which have been extensively used in conservative systems, are applied to a general three-dimensional boundary layer belonging to non-conservative systems. Two kinds of e N methods, i.e., the eN-CR method and the eN-RT method, are established. Both the two kinds of methods can be used to predict the evolutions of the spanwise wavenumber and the amplitude of the disturbances in general three-dimensional boundary layers. The reliability of the proposed methods is verified and validated by performing a direct numerical simulation (DNS) in a hypersonic general three-dimensional boundary layer over an aircraft model. The results are also compared with those obtained by other e N methods, indicating that the proposed methods have great potential applications in improving the transition prediction accuracy in general three-dimensional boundary layers.

  • Large deflection of curved elastic beams made of Ludwick type material
    • Abstract: The large deflection of an axially extensible curved beam with a rectangular cross-section is investigated. The elastic beam is assumed to satisfy the Euler-Bernoulli postulation and be made of the Ludwick type material. Through reasonably simplified integration, the strain and curvature of the axis of the beam are presented in implicit formulations. The governing equations involving both geometric and material nonlinearities of the curved beam are derived and solved by the shooting method. When the initial curvature of the beam is zero, the curved beam is degenerated into a straight beam, and the predicted results obtained by the present model are consistent with those in the open literature. Numerical examples are further given for curved cantilever and simply supported beams, and the couplings between elongation and bending are found for the curved beams.

  • Nonlinear three-dimensional stretched flow of an Oldroyd-B fluid with
           convective condition, thermal radiation, and mixed convection
    • Abstract: The effect of non-linear convection in a laminar three-dimensional Oldroyd-B fluid flow is addressed. The heat transfer phenomenon is explored by considering the non-linear thermal radiation and heat generation/absorption. The boundary layer assumptions are taken into account to govern the mathematical model of the flow analysis. Some suitable similarity variables are introduced to transform the partial differential equations into ordinary differential systems. The Runge-Kutta-Fehlberg fourth- and fifth-order techniques with the shooting method are used to obtain the solutions of the dimensionless velocities and temperature. The effects of various physical parameters on the fluid velocities and temperature are plotted and examined. A comparison with the exact and homotopy perturbation solutions is made for the viscous fluid case, and an excellent match is noted. The numerical values of the wall shear stresses and the heat transfer rate at the wall are tabulated and investigated. The enhancement in the values of the Deborah number shows a reverse behavior on the liquid velocities. The results show that the temperature and the thermal boundary layer are reduced when the non-linear convection parameter increases. The values of the Nusselt number are higher in the non-linear radiation situation than those in the linear radiation situation.

  • Stress analysis near the tips of a transverse crack in an elastic
    • Abstract: The plane elastic problem for a semi-strip with a transverse crack is investigated. The initial problem is reduced to a one-dimensional continuous problem by use of an integral transformation method with a generalized scheme. The one-dimensional problem is first formulated as a vector boundary problem, and then reduced to a system of three singular integral equations (SIEs). The system is solved by use of an orthogonal polynomial method and a special generalized method. The contribution of this work is the consideration of kernel fixed singularities in solving the system. The crack length and its location relative to the semi-strip’s lateral sides are investigated to simplify the problem’s statement. This simplification reduces the initial problem to a system of two SIEs.

  • Selective enhancement of oblique waves caused by finite amplitude second
           mode in supersonic boundary layer
    • Abstract: Nonlinear interactions of the two-dimensional (2D) second mode with oblique modes are studied numerically in a Mach 6.0 flat-plate boundary layer, focusing on its selective enhancement effect on amplification of different oblique waves. Evolution of oblique modes with various frequencies and spanwise wavenumbers in the presence of 2D second mode is simulated successively, using a modified parabolized stability equation (PSE) method, which is able to simulate interaction of two modes with different frequencies efficiently. Numerical results show that oblique modes in a broad band of frequencies and spanwise wavenumbers can be enhanced by the finite amplitude 2D second mode instability wave. The enhancement effect is accomplished by interaction of the 2D second mode, the oblique mode, and a forced mode with difference frequency. Two types of oblique modes are found to be more amplified, i.e., oblique modes with frequency close to that of the 2D second mode and low-frequency first mode oblique waves. Each of them may correspond to one type of transition routes found in transition experiments. The spanwise wavenumber of the oblique wave preferred by the nonlinear interaction is also determined by numerical simulations.

  • Cattaneo-Christov heat and mass flux model for 3D hydrodynamic flow of
           chemically reactive Maxwell liquid
    • Abstract: This research focuses on the Cattaneo-Christov theory of heat and mass flux for a three-dimensional Maxwell liquid towards a moving surface. An incompressible laminar flow with variable thermal conductivity is considered. The flow generation is due to the bidirectional stretching of sheet. The combined phenomenon of heat and mass transport is accounted. The Cattaneo-Christov model of heat and mass diffusion is used to develop the expressions of energy and mass species. The first-order chemical reaction term in the mass species equation is considered. The boundary layer assumptions lead to the governing mathematical model. The homotopic simulation is adopted to visualize the results of the dimensionless flow equations. The graphs of velocities, temperature, and concentration show the effects of different arising parameters. A numerical benchmark is presented to visualize the convergent values of the computed results. The results show that the concentration and temperature fields are decayed for the Cattaneo-Christov theory of heat and mass diffusion.

  • Amended influence matrix method for removal of rigid motion in the
           interior BVP for plane elasticity
    • Abstract: A conventional complex variable boundary integral equation (CVBIE) in plane elasticity is provided. After using the Somigliana identity between a particular fundamental stress field and a physical stress field, an additional integral equality is obtained. By adding both sides of this integral equality to both sides of the conventional CVBIE, the amended boundary integral equation (BIE) is obtained. The method based on the discretization of the amended BIE is called the amended influence matrix method. With this method, for the Neumann boundary value problem (BVP) of an interior region, a unique solution for the displacement can be obtained. Several numerical examples are provided to prove the efficiency of the suggested method.

  • Near-wall behaviors of oblique-shock-wave/turbulent-boundary-layer
    • Abstract: A direct numerical simulation (DNS) on an oblique shock wave with an incident angle of 33.2° impinging on a Mach 2.25 supersonic turbulent boundary layer is performed. The numerical results are confirmed to be of high accuracy by comparison with the reference data. Particular efforts have been made on the investigation of the near-wall behaviors in the interaction region, where the pressure gradient is so significant that a certain separation zone emerges. It is found that, the traditional linear and logarithmic laws, which describe the mean-velocity profiles in the viscous and meso sublayers, respectively, cease to be valid in the neighborhood of the interaction region, and two new laws of the wall are proposed by elevating the pressure gradient to the leading order. The new laws are inspired by the analysis on the incompressible separation flows, while the compressibility is additionally taken into account. It is verified by the DNS results that the new laws are adequate to reproduce the mean-velocity profiles both inside and outside the interaction region. Moreover, the normalization adopted in the new laws is able to regularize the Reynolds stress into an almost universal distribution even with a salient adverse pressure gradient (APG).

  • In-plane forced vibration of curved pipe conveying fluid by Green function
    • Abstract: The Green function method (GFM) is utilized to analyze the in-plane forced vibration of curved pipe conveying fluid, where the randomicity and distribution of the external excitation and the added mass and damping ratio are considered. The Laplace transform is used, and the Green functions with various boundary conditions are obtained subsequently. Numerical calculations are performed to validate the present solutions, and the effects of some key parameters on both tangential and radial displacements are further investigated. The forced vibration problems with linear and nonlinear motion constraints are also discussed briefly. The method can be radiated to study other forms of forced vibration problems related with pipes or more extensive issues.

  • Modeling natural convection boundary layer flow of micropolar nanofluid
           over vertical permeable cone with variable wall temperature
    • Abstract: This paper discusses the natural convection boundary layer flow of a micropolar nanofluid over a vertical permeable cone with variable wall temperatures. Non-similar solutions are obtained. The nonlinearly coupled differential equations under the boundary layer approximations governing the flow are solved numerically using an efficient, iterative, tri-diagonal, implicit finite difference method. Different experimental correlations for both nanofluid effective viscosity and nanofluid thermal conductivity are considered. It is found that as the vortex-viscosity parameter increases, both the velocity profiles and the local Nusselt number decrease. Also, among all the nanoparticles considered in this investigation, Cu gives a good convection.

  • Triad resonant wave interactions in electrically charged jets
    • Authors: S. Orizaga; D. N. Riahi
      Abstract: Nonlinear instability in electrically charged jets is studied using the governing electro-hydrodynamic equations describing stretching and thinning of a liquid jet. A jet flow system subject to both space and time evolving disturbances is considered. At the linear stage, the Rayleigh and conducting jet flow instability modes are uncovered. Nonlinear instability in the flow is explored via triad resonant waves which uncover fa- vorable operating modes not previously detected in the linear study of the problem. In particular, the jet radius is significantly reduced, and the electric field of the jet is properly oriented under the nonlinear study. It is found that taking into account the resonance triad modes provides a better mathematical description of a jet that stretches and thins due to tangential electric field effects. Both linear and nonlinear instability results in the jet flow system are presented and discussed.

  • Response of turbulent enstrophy to sudden implementation of spanwise wall
           oscillation in channel flow
    • Authors: Mingwei Ge; Guodong Jin
      Abstract: The response of turbulent enstrophy to a sudden implementation of spanwise wall oscillation (SWO) is studied in a turbulent channel flow via direct numerical simulation. In the beginning of the application of SWO, a significant correlation is formed between ω y ′ and ω z ′ . A transient growth of turbulent enstrophy occurs, which directly enhances turbulent dissipation and drifts the turbulent flow towards a new lower-drag condition. Afterwards, the terms related to the stretching of vorticity (ω x , ω y ′ , and ω z ), the inclination of ω y ′ by \(\frac{\partial w}{\partial y}\) , the turn of ω̄ z by \(\frac{\partial v\prime}{\partial z}\) , and the horizontal shear of ω̄ z by \(\frac{\partial w\prime}{\partial x}\) are suppressed due to the presence of SWO, leading to attenuation of the turbulent enstrophy.

  • Fractional-order generalized thermoelastic diffusion theory
    • Authors: Chunbao Xiong; Yanbo Niu
      Abstract: The present work aims to establish a fractional-order generalized themoelastic diffusion theory for anisotropic and linearly thermoelastic diffusive media. To numerically handle the multi-physics problems expressed by a sequence of incomplete differential equations, particularly by a fractional equation, a generalized variational principle is obtained for the unified theory using a semi-inverse method. In numerical implementation, the dynamic response of a semi-infinite medium with one end subjected to a thermal shock and a chemical potential shock is investigated using the Laplace transform. Numerical results, i.e., non-dimensional temperature, chemical potential, and displacement, are presented graphically. The influence of the fractional order parameter on them is evaluated and discussed.

  • Applications of EPSE method for predicting crossflow instability in
           swept-wing boundary layers
    • Authors: Xuezhi Lu; Jisheng Luo
      Abstract: The nth-order expansion of the parabolized stability equation (EPSEn) is obtained from the Taylor expansion of the linear parabolized stability equation (LPSE) in the streamwise direction. The EPSE together with the homogeneous boundary conditions forms a local eigenvalue problem, in which the streamwise variations of the mean flow and the disturbance shape function are considered. The first-order EPSE (EPSE1) and the second-order EPSE (EPSE2) are used to study the crossflow instability in the swept NLF(2)-0415 wing boundary layer. The non-parallelism degree of the boundary layer is strong. Compared with the growth rates predicted by the linear stability theory (LST), the results given by the EPSE1 and EPSE2 agree well with those given by the LPSE. In particular, the results given by the EPSE2 are almost the same as those given by the LPSE. The prediction of the EPSE1 is more accurate than the prediction of the LST, and is more efficient than the predictions of the EPSE2 and LPSE. Therefore, the EPSE1 is an efficient e N prediction tool for the crossflow instability in swept-wing boundary-layer flows.
