  • Interplay of surface geometry and vorticity dynamics in incompressible
           flows on curved surfaces
    • Authors: Qian Shi; Yu Chen; Xilin Xie
      Pages: 1191 - 1212
      Abstract: Abstract Incompressible viscous flows on curved surfaces are considered with respect to the interplay of surface geometry, curvature, and vorticity dynamics. Free flows and cylindrical wakes over a Gaussian bump are numerically solved using a surface vorticity-stream function formulation. Numerical simulations show that the Gaussian curvature can generate vorticity, and non-uniformity of the Gaussian curvature is the main cause. In the cylindrical wake, the bump dominated by the positive Gaussian curvature can significantly affect the vortex street by forming velocity depression and changing vorticity transport. The results may provide possibilities for manipulating surface flows through local change in the surface geometry.

  • Mechanism of three-dimensional boundary-layer receptivity
    • Authors: Luyu Shen; Changgen Lu
      Pages: 1213 - 1224
      Abstract: Abstract Boundary-layer receptivity is always a hot issue in laminar-turbulent transition. Most actual laminar-turbulent transitions belong to three-dimensional flows. An infinite back-swept flat-plate boundary layer is a typical three-dimensional flow. Study of its receptivity is important both in theory and applications. In this paper, a freestream turbulence model is established. A modified fourth-order Runge-Kutta scheme is used for time marching, and compact finite difference schemes are used for space discretization. On these bases, whether unsteady cross-flow vortices can be excited in the three-dimensional boundary layer (the infinite back-swept flat-plate boundary layer) by free-stream turbulence is studied numerically. If so, effects of the level and the direction of free-stream turbulence on the three-dimensional boundary-layer receptivity are further studied. Differences of the three-dimensional boundary-layer receptivity are then discussed by considering the non-parallel effect, influence of the leading-edge stagnation point of the flat plate, and variation of the back-swept angle separately. Intensive studies on the three-dimensional boundary-layer receptivity will benefit the development of the hydrodynamic stability theory, and provide a theoretical basis for prediction and control of laminar-turbulent transition.

  • Structure-preserving properties of Störmer-Verlet scheme for
           mathematical pendulum
    • Authors: Weipeng Hu; Mingzhe Song; Zichen Deng
      Pages: 1225 - 1232
      Abstract: Abstract The structure-preserving property, in both the time domain and the frequency domain, is an important index for evaluating validity of a numerical method. Even in the known structure-preserving methods such as the symplectic method, the inherent conservation law in the frequency domain is hardly conserved. By considering a mathematical pendulum model, a Störmer-Verlet scheme is first constructed in a Hamiltonian framework. The conservation law of the Störmer-Verlet scheme is derived, including the total energy expressed in the time domain and periodicity in the frequency domain. To track the structure-preserving properties of the Störmer-Verlet scheme associated with the conservation law, the motion of the mathematical pendulum is simulated with different time step lengths. The numerical results illustrate that the Störmer-Verlet scheme can preserve the total energy of the model but cannot preserve periodicity at all. A phase correction is performed for the Störmer-Verlet scheme. The results imply that the phase correction can improve the conservative property of periodicity of the Störmer-Verlet scheme.

  • Bifurcation characteristics analysis of a class of nonlinear dynamical
           systems based on singularity theory
    • Authors: Kuan Lu; Yushu Chen; Lei Hou
      Pages: 1233 - 1246
      Abstract: Abstract A method for seeking main bifurcation parameters of a class of nonlinear dynamical systems is proposed. The method is based on the effects of parametric variation of dynamical systems on eigenvalues of the Frechet matrix. The singularity theory is used to study the engineering unfolding (EU) and the universal unfolding (UU) of an arch structure model, respectively. Unfolding parameters of EU are combination of concerned physical parameters in actual engineering, and equivalence of unfolding parameters and physical parameters is verified. Transient sets and bifurcation behaviors of EU and UU are compared to illustrate that EU can reflect main bifurcation characteristics of nonlinear systems in engineering. The results improve the understanding and the scope of applicability of EU in actual engineering systems when UU is difficult to be obtained.

  • Arm motion control model based on central pattern generator
    • Authors: Zhigang Zheng; Rubin Wang
      Pages: 1247 - 1256
      Abstract: Abstract According to the theory of Matsuoka neural oscillators and with the consideration of the fact that the human upper arm mainly consists of six muscles, a new kind of central pattern generator (CPG) neural network consisting of six neurons is proposed to regulate the contraction of the upper arm muscles. To verify effectiveness of the proposed CPG network, an arm motion control model based on the CPG is established. By adjusting the CPG parameters, we obtain the neural responses of the network, the angles of joint and hand of the model with MATLAB. The simulation results agree with the results of crank rotation experiments designed by Ohta et al., showing that the arm motion control model based on a CPG network is reasonable and effective.

  • Optimal control of attitude for coupled-rigid-body spacecraft via
           Chebyshev-Gauss pseudospectral method
    • Authors: Xinsheng Ge; Zhonggui Yi; Liqun Chen
      Pages: 1257 - 1272
      Abstract: Abstract The attitude optimal control problem (OCP) of a two-rigid-body spacecraft with two rigid bodies coupled by a ball-in-socket joint is considered. Based on conservation of angular momentum of the system without the external torque, a dynamic equation of three-dimensional attitude motion of the system is formulated. The attitude motion planning problem of the coupled-rigid-body spacecraft can be converted to a discrete nonlinear programming (NLP) problem using the Chebyshev-Gauss pseudospectral method (CGPM). Solutions of the NLP problem can be obtained using the sequential quadratic programming (SQP) algorithm. Since the collocation points of the CGPM are Chebyshev-Gauss (CG) points, the integration of cost function can be approximated by the Clenshaw-Curtis quadrature, and the corresponding quadrature weights can be calculated efficiently using the fast Fourier transform (FFT). To improve computational efficiency and numerical stability, the barycentric Lagrange interpolation is presented to substitute for the classic Lagrange interpolation in the approximation of state and control variables. Furthermore, numerical float errors of the state differential matrix and barycentric weights can be alleviated using trigonometric identity especially when the number of CG points is large. A simple yet efficient method is used to avoid sensitivity to the initial values for the SQP algorithm using a layered optimization strategy from a feasible solution to an optimal solution. Effectiveness of the proposed algorithm is perfect for attitude motion planning of a two-rigid-body spacecraft coupled by a ball-in-socket joint through numerical simulation.

  • Analytical method for evaluating stress field in casing-cement-formation
           system of oil/gas wells
    • Authors: Wei Liu; Baohua Yu; Jingen Deng
      Pages: 1273 - 1294
      Abstract: Abstract In this paper, we present an analytical method for evaluating the stress field within a casing-cement-formation system of oil/gas wells under anisotropic in-situ stresses in the rock formation and uniform pressure within the casing. The present method treats the in-situ stresses in the formation as initial stresses since the in-situ stresses have already developed in the formation before placement of cement and casing into the well. It is demonstrated that, via this treatment, the present method excludes additional displacements within the formation predicted by the existing method, and gives more reasonable stress results. An actual tight-oil well is analyzed using the present and existing analytical methods, as well as the finite element method. Good agreement between the analytical results and the finite element analysis (FEA) results is obtained, validating the present method. It is also evident that, compared with the present method, the existing method overestimates the compressive stress level within the casing and the cement. Finally, the effects of elastic properties of the formation, cement, and inner pressure of casing on stresses within the casing and cement are illustrated with a series of sensitivity analyses.

  • Layer-element analysis of multilayered saturated soils subject to

    • Authors: Zhiyong Ai; Lihua Wang
      Pages: 1295 - 1312
      Abstract: Abstract The analytical layer-elements for a single poroelastic soil layer and the underlying half-space are established using an algebraic manipulation and Hankel transform. According to the boundary conditions and adjacent continuity conditions of general stresses and displacements, a global matrix equation in the transform domain for multilayered saturated soil media is assembled and solved. Solutions in the frequency domain can be further obtained with an inverse Hankel transform. Numerical examples are used to examine accuracy of the present method and demonstrate effects of soil parameters and load conditions on dynamic responses of the multilayered poroelastic saturated soils.

  • Complex variable solution for boundary value problem with X-shaped cavity
           in plane elasticity and its application
    • Authors: Hang Zhou
      Pages: 1329 - 1346
      Abstract: Abstract A new type of displacement pile, the X-section cast-in-place concrete (XCC) pile, has recently been developed in China. Extensive field tests and laboratory experiments are undertaken to evaluate its performance and quantify the non-uniform deformation effect (NUDE) of the X-shaped cross section during installation. This paper develops a simplified theoretical model that attempts to capture the NUDE. Based on the theory of complex variable plane elasticity, closed-form solutions of the stress and displacement for the X-shaped cavity boundary value problem are given. Subsequently, the analytical solution is used to evaluate the NUDE, the concrete filling index (CFI), and the perimeter reduction coefficient of the XCC pile cross section. The computed results are compared with field test results, showing reasonable agreement. The present simplified theoretical model reveals the deformation mechanism of the X-shaped cavity and facilitates application of the newly developed XCC pile technique in geotechnical engineering.

           interfaces by symplectic expansion
    • Authors: Xinsheng Xu; Zhenzhen Tong; Dalun Rong; Xianhe Cheng; Chenghui Xu; Zhenhuan Zhou
      Pages: 1043 - 1058
      Abstract: Abstract A Hamiltonian-based analytical method is used to study the mode III interface cracks in magnetoelectroelastic bimaterials with an imperfect interface. By introducing an unknown vector, the governing equations are reformulated in sets of first-order ordinary differential equations. Using separation of variables, eigensolutions in the symplectic space are obtained. An exact solution of the unknown vector is obtained and expressed in terms of symplectic eigensolutions. Singularities of mechanical, electric, and magnetic fields are evaluated with the generalized intensity factors. Comparisons are made to verify accuracy and stability of the proposed method. Numerical examples including mixed boundary conditions are given.

  • Thermal buckling analysis of functionally graded cylindrical shells
    • Authors: Zeqing Wan; Shirong Li
      Pages: 1059 - 1070
      Abstract: Abstract Thermal buckling behavior of cylindrical shell made of functionally graded material (FGM) is studied. The material constituents are composed of ceramic and metal. The material properties across the shell thickness are assumed to be graded according to a simple power law distribution in terms of the volume fraction rule of mixtures. Based on the Donnell shell theory, a system of dimensionless partial differential equations of buckling in terms of displacement components is derived. The method of separation of variables is used to transform the governing equations to ordinary differential equations (ODEs). A shooting method is used to search for the numerical solutions of the differential equations under two types of boundary conditions. Effects of the power law index, the dimensionless geometrical parameters, and the temperature ratio on the critical buckling temperature are discussed in detail.

  • Duality in interaction potentials for curved surface bodies and inside
    • Authors: Dan Wang; Yajun Yin; Jiye Wu; Zheng Zhong
      Pages: 1071 - 1090
      Abstract: Abstract Based on the viewpoint of duality, this paper studies the interaction between a curved surface body and an inside particle. By convex/concave bodies with geometric duality, interaction potentials of particles located outside and inside the curved surface bodies are shown to have duality. With duality, the curvature-based potential between a curved surface body and an inside particle is derived. Furthermore, the normal and tangential driving forces exerted on the particle are studied and expressed as a function of curvatures and curvature gradients. Numerical experiments are designed to test accuracy of the curvature-based potential.

  • Effect of inertial particles with different specific heat capacities on
           heat transfer in particle-laden turbulent flow
    • Authors: Caixi Liu; Shuai Tang; Yuhong Dong
      Pages: 1149 - 1158
      Abstract: Abstract The effect of inertial particles with different specific heat on heat transfer in particle-laden turbulent channel flows is studied using the direct numerical simulation (DNS) and the Lagrangian particle tracking method. The simulation uses a two-way coupling model to consider the momentum and thermal interactions between the particles and turbulence. The study shows that the temperature fields display differences between the particle-laden flow with different specific heat particles and the particle-free flow, indicating that the particle specific heat is an important factor that affects the heat transfer process in a particle-laden flow. It is found that the heat transfer capacity of the particle-laden flow gradually increases with the increase of the particle specific heat. This is due to the positive contribution of the particle increase to the heat transfer. In addition, the Nusselt number of a particle-laden flow is compared with that of a particle-free flow. It is found that particles with a large specific heat strengthen heat transfer of turbulent flow, while those with small specific heat weaken heat transfer of turbulent flow.

  • Dispersion and attenuation of torsional wave in a viscoelastic layer
           bonded between a layer and a half-space of dry sandy media
    • Authors: P. Alam; S. Kundu; S. Gupta
      Abstract: Abstract Propagation of a torsional wave in a doubly-layered half-space structure of an initially stressed heterogeneous viscoelastic layer sandwiched between a layer and a half-space of heterogeneous dry sandy media is studied. A closed form complex expression for the velocity profile is obtained under effective boundary conditions. The real part of the complex expression provides a dispersion equation, and the imaginary part yields a damping equation. The derived dispersion and damped equations are in well agreement with the classical Love wave condition. In addition, to study the effect of the dissipation factor, the attenuation coefficient, the sandy parameters, the initial stress, the heterogeneity parameters, and the thickness ratio parameter, some noteworthy contemplations are made by numerical calculations and graphical visuals. The results of this paper may present a deeper insight into the behaviour of propagation phenomena in heterogeneous viscoelastic and heterogeneous dry sandy materials that can provide a theoretical guide for the design and optimization in the field of earthquake engineering. The study also reveals that the presence of a damping part due to viscoelasticity affects the torsional wave propagation significantly.

  • Selective enhancement of oblique waves caused by finite amplitude second
           mode in supersonic boundary layer
    • Authors: Cunbo Zhang; Jisheng Luo
      Abstract: 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.

  • Modeling natural convection boundary layer flow of micropolar nanofluid
           over vertical permeable cone with variable wall temperature
    • Authors: S. E. Ahmed
      Abstract: 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: 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: 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: 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.
