  • 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

      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.

  • Cattaneo-Christov heat and mass flux model for 3D hydrodynamic flow of
           chemically reactive Maxwell liquid
    • Authors: S. A. Shehzad; T. Hayat; A. Alsaedi; M. A. Meraj
      Pages: 1347 - 1356
      Abstract: 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.

  • Near-wall behaviors of oblique-shock-wave/turbulent-boundary-layer
    • Authors: Mingsheng Ye; Ming Dong
      Pages: 1357 - 1376
      Abstract: 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).

  • Development of inflow turbulence in microscale urban atmospheric
    • Authors: Haifeng Li; Guixiang Cui; Zhaoshun Zhang
      Pages: 1377 - 1396
      Abstract: Abstract The sensitivity of turbulence-development to inflow turbulent statistics is investigated in microscale urban atmospheric environment flows. Large-eddy simulations (LESs) are carried out, in which the inflow error is brought in by transforming a fully developed turbulent field according to the Reynolds stress or energy spectra. A theoretical analysis is performed by neglecting the diffusion term in the budget equations of the turbulent kinetic energy. The results show that, (i) the error caused by the Reynolds stress decays until the fully developed level is achieved, and (ii) the error caused by the characteristic length scale increases immediately and then decreases. The streamwise changing rate of the inflow error weakens when the vertical coordinate increases. Further testing of the effects of the inflow inner- and outer-layer data shows that, the inflow inner-layer data dominate the near field, and the inflow outer-layer data dominate the far field.

  • In-plane forced vibration of curved pipe conveying fluid by Green function
    • Authors: Qianli Zhao; Zhili Sun
      Pages: 1397 - 1414
      Abstract: 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.

  • Critical transition Reynolds number for plane channel flow
    • Authors: Yongming Zhang
      Pages: 1415 - 1424
      Abstract: Abstract The determination of the critical transition Reynolds number is of practical importance for some engineering problems. However, it is not available with the current theoretical method, and has to rely on experiments. For supersonic/hypersonic boundary layer flows, the experimental method for determination is not feasible either. Therefore, in this paper, a numerical method for the determination of the critical transition Reynolds number for an incompressible plane channel flow is proposed. It is basically aimed to test the feasibility of the method. The proposed method is extended to determine the critical Reynolds number of the supersonic/hypersonic boundary layer flow in the subsequent papers.

  • Dynamic analysis of a rotating tapered cantilever Timoshenko beam based on
           the power series method
    • Authors: Xiaodong Yang; Shaowen Wang; Wei Zhang; Zhaohong Qin; Tianzhi Yang
      Pages: 1425 - 1438
      Abstract: Abstract The mathematical modelling of a rotating tapered Timoshenko beam with preset and pre-twist angles is constructed. The partial differential equations governing the six degrees, i.e., three displacements in the axial, flapwise, and edgewise directions and three cross-sectional angles of torsion, flapwise bending, and edgewise bending, are obtained by the Euler angle descriptions. The power series method is then used to investigate the natural frequencies and the corresponding complex mode functions. It is found that all the natural frequencies are increased by the centrifugal stiffening except the twist frequency, which is slightly decreased. The tapering ratio increases the first transverse, torsional, and axial frequencies, while decreases the second transverse frequency. Because of the pre-twist, all the directions are gyroscopically coupled with the phase differences among the six degrees.

  • Semi-analytical solutions to one-dimensional consolidation for unsaturated
           soils with semi-permeable drainage boundary
    • Authors: Lei Wang; De’an Sun; Yongfu Xu
      Pages: 1439 - 1458
      Abstract: Abstract The semi-analytical solutions to Fredlund and Hasan’s one-dimensional (1D) consolidation for unsaturated soils with a semi-permeable drainage boundary are presented. Two variables are introduced to transform the two coupled governing equations of pore-water and pore-air pressures into an equivalent set of partial differential equations (PDFs), which are easily solved by the Laplace transform method. Then, the pore-water pressure, pore-air pressure, and soil settlement are obtained in the Laplace domain. The Crump method is adopted to perform the inverse Laplace transform in order to obtain the semi-analytical solutions in the time domain. It is shown that the proposed solutions are more applicable to various types of boundary conditions and agree well with the existing solutions from the literature. Several numerical examples are provided to investigate the consolidation behavior of an unsaturated single-layer soil with single, double, mixed, and semi-permeable drainage boundaries. The changes in the pore-air and pore-water pressures and the soil settlement with the time factor at different values of the semi-permeable drainage boundary parameters are illustrated. In addition, parametric studies are con- ducted on the pore-air and pore-water pressures at different ratios (the air permeability coefficient to the water permeability coefficient) and depths.

  • Thermal buckling and postbuckling of FGM circular plates with in-plane
           elastic restraints
    • Authors: Yun Sun; Maolin Wang; Shirong Li
      Pages: 1459 - 1470
      Abstract: Abstract Based on von Karman’s plate theory, the axisymmetric thermal buckling and post-buckling of the functionally graded material (FGM) circular plates with inplane elastic restraints under transversely non-uniform temperature rise are studied. The properties of the FGM media are varied through the thickness based on a simple power law. The governing equations are numerically solved by a shooting method. The results of the critical buckling temperature, post-buckling equilibrium paths, and configurations for the in-plane elastically restrained plates are presented. The effects of the in-plane elastic restraints, material property gradient, and temperature variation on the responses of thermal buckling and post-buckling are examined in detail.

  • Amended influence matrix method for removal of rigid motion in the
           interior BVP for plane elasticity
    • Authors: Yizhou Chen
      Pages: 1471 - 1480
      Abstract: 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.

  • Transfer characteristics of dynamic biochemical signals in non-reversing
           pulsatile flows in a shallow Y-shaped microfluidic channel: signal
           filtering and nonlinear amplitude-frequency modulation
    • Authors: Zongzheng Chen; Weimo Yuan; A. R. Aziz; Zhengming Gao; Depei Zeng; Bo Liu; Kairong Qin
      Pages: 1481 - 1496
      Abstract: Abstract The transports of the dynamic biochemical signals in the non-reversing pulsatile flows in the mixing microchannel of a Y-shaped microfluidic device are ana- lyzed. The results show that the mixing micro-channel acts as a low-pass filter, and the biochemical signals are nonlinearly modulated by the pulsatile flows, which depend on the biochemical signal frequency, the flow signal frequency, and the biochemical signal transporting distance. It is concluded that, the transfer characteristics of the dynamic biochemical signals, which are transported in the time-varying flows, should be carefully considered for better loading biochemical signals on the cells cultured on the bottom of the microfluidic channel.

    • Authors: Chao Xu; Dongyang Shi; Xin Liao
      Abstract: Abstract This paper aims to present a new streamline diffusion method with low order rectangular Bernardi-Raugel elements to solve the generalized Oseen equations. With the help of the Bramble-Hilbert lemma, the optimal errors of the velocity and pressure are estimated, which are independent of the considered parameter ε. With an interpolation postprocessing approach, the superconvergent error of the pressure is obtained. Finally, a numerical experiment is carried out to confirm the theoretical results.

  • Dynamic modeling and simulation of deploying process for space solar power
           satellite receiver
    • Authors: Tingting Yin; Zichen Deng; Weipeng Hu; Xindong Wang
      Abstract: Abstract To reveal some dynamic properties of the deploying process for the solar power satellite via an arbitrarily large phased array (SPS-ALPHA) solar receiver, the symplectic Runge-Kuttamethod is used to simulate the simplified model with the consideration of the Rayleigh damping effect. The system containing the Rayleigh damping can be separated and transformed into the equivalent nondamping system formally to insure the application condition of the symplectic Runge-Kutta method©First, the Lagrange equation with the Rayleigh damping governing the motion of the system is derived via the variational principle. Then, with some reasonable assumptions on the relations among the damping, mass, and stiffness matrices, the Rayleigh damping system is equivalently converted into the nondamping system formally, so that the symplectic Runge-Kutta method can be used to simulate the deploying process for the solar receiver. Finally, some numerical results of the symplectic Runge-Kutta method for the dynamic properties of the solar receiver are reported. The numerical results show that the proposed simplified model is valid for the deploying process for the SPS-ALPHA solar receiver, and the symplectic Runge-Kutta method can preserve the displacement constraints of the system well with excellent long-time numerical stability.

  • Weakly nonlinear stability analysis of triple diffusive convection in a
           Maxwell fluid saturated porous layer
    • Authors: K. R. Raghunatha; I. S. Shivakumara; B. M. Shankar
      Abstract: Abstract The weakly nonlinear stability of the triple diffusive convection in a Maxwell fluid saturated porous layer is investigated. In some cases, disconnected oscillatory neutral curves are found to exist, indicating that three critical thermal Darcy-Rayleigh numbers are required to specify the linear instability criteria. However, another distinguishing feature predicted from that of Newtonian fluids is the impossibility of quasi-periodic bifurcation from the rest state. Besides, the co-dimensional two bifurcation points are located in the Darcy-Prandtl number and the stress relaxation parameter plane. It is observed that the value of the stress relaxation parameter defining the crossover between stationary and oscillatory bifurcations decreases when the Darcy-Prandtl number increases. A cubic Landau equation is derived based on the weakly nonlinear stability analysis. It is found that the bifurcating oscillatory solution is either supercritical or subcritical, depending on the choice of the physical parameters. Heat and mass transfers are estimated in terms of time and area-averaged Nusselt numbers.

  • Efficient modeling of cable-pulley system with friction based on
           arbitrary-Lagrangian-Eulerian approach
    • Authors: Yun Peng; Yadong Wei; Ming Zhou
      Abstract: Abstract In conventional modeling of a cable-pulley system, the cable must be finely meshed with Lagrangian elements for valid contact detections with pulleys, leading to extremely low efficiency. The sliding joint method based on the arbitrary-Lagrangian-Eulerian (ALE) formulation still lacks an efficient cable element, and in particular, modeling of friction between a sliding joint and the cable has not been studied. This paper presents efficient multi-body modeling of a cable-pulley system with friction. A variable-length cable element with a node movable along the cable, which is described with ALE, is developed to mesh the cable. A transitional cable element is then proposed to model the contact part of the cable by fixing its two nodes to the two corresponding locations of the pulley. Friction of the cable-pulley is derived as a simple law of tension decay and embedded in the multi-body system modeling. It is simplified as a generalized friction force acting only on the arc-length coordinate. This approach can use a rough mesh on the cable, and is free of contact detections, thus significantly saving computation time. Several examples are presented to validate the proposed method, and show its effectiveness in real engineering applications.

  • Nonlinear oscillations of sigmoid functionally graded material plates
           moving in longitudinal direction
    • Authors: Yanqing Wang; J. W. Zu
      Abstract: Abstract Geometrically nonlinear oscillations are investigated on sigmoid functionally graded material (S-FGM) plates with a longitudinal speed. The material properties of the plates obey a sigmoid distribution rule along the thickness direction. Based on the D’Alembert’s principle, a nonlinear equation of motion is derived for the moving S-FGM plates, where the von K´arm´an nonlinear plate theory is adopted. Utilizing the Galerkin method, the equation of motion is discretized and solved via the method of harmonic bal-ance. The approximate analytical solutions are validated through the adaptive step-size fourth-order Runge-Kutta method. Besides, the stability of the steady-state solutions is examined. The results reveal that the mode interaction behavior can happen between the first two modes of the moving S-FGM plates, leading to a complex nonlinear frequency response. It is further found that the power-law index, the longitudinal speed, the exci-tation amplitude, and the in-plane pretension force can significantly affect the nonlinear frequency-response characteristics of longitudinally traveling S-FGM plates.

  • Algorithm for transient growth of perturbations in channel Poiseuille flow
    • Authors: Jianlei Zhang; Gang Dong; Yi Li
      Abstract: Abstract This study develops a direct optimal growth algorithm for three-dimensional transient growth analysis of perturbations in channel flows which are globally stable but locally unstable. Different from traditional non-modal methods based on the Orr- Sommerfeld and Squire (OSS) equations that assume simple base flows, this algorithm can be applied to arbitrarily complex base flows. In the proposed algorithm, a re- orthogonalization Arnoldi method is used to improve orthogonality of the orthogonal basis of the Krylov subspace generated by solving the linearized forward and adjoint Navier-Stokes (N-S) equations. The linearized adjoint N-S equations with the specific boundary conditions for the channel are derived, and a new convergence criterion is pro- posed. The algorithm is then applied to a one-dimensional base flow (the plane Poiseuille flow) and a two-dimensional base flow (the plane Poiseuille flow with a low-speed streak) in a channel. For one-dimensional cases, the effects of the spanwise width of the chan- nel and the Reynolds number on the transient growth of perturbations are studied. For two-dimensional cases, the effect of strength of initial low-speed streak is discussed. The presence of the streak in the plane Poiseuille flow leads to a larger and quicker growth of the perturbations than that in the one-dimensional case. For both cases, the results show that an optimal flow field leading to the largest growth of perturbations is character- ized by high- and low-speed streaks and the corresponding streamwise vortical structures. The lift-up mechanism that induces the transient growth of perturbations is discussed. The performance of the re-orthogonalization Arnoldi technique in the algorithm for both one- and two-dimensional base flows is demonstrated, and the algorithm is validated by comparing the results with those obtained from the OSS equations method and the cross- check method.
