Abstract

The aim of this work is to carry out numerical simulations in the time domain of seakeeping problems taking into account internal flow in tanks, including sloshing. To this aim, a Smooth Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH) solver for simulating internal flows in tanks is coupled in the [...]

Abstract

The aim of this work is to be able to cope with complex sloshing-seakeeping problems in an effective manner. For this purpose, two different solvers will be integrated into one coupled tool to take advantage of their characteristics.

Abstract

The paper presents advances in the discrete element modelling of underground excavation processes extending modelling possibilities as well as increasing computational efficiency. Efficient [...]

Abstract

The present paper presents multiscale modelling via coupling of the discrete and finite element methods. Theoretical formulation of the discrete element method using spherical or cylindrical particles has been briefly reviewed. Basic equations of the finite element method using [...]

Abstract

 

In this work we present the progress in the development of an algorithm for the simulation of thermal fluid–structural coupling in a tunnel fire. The coupling strategy [...]

Abstract

This paper proposes a methodology for the continuous blending of the finite element method and smooth particle hydrodynamics. The coupled approximation [...]

Abstract

The share of renewable energy sources (RES)’ production in energy mixes, especially the ones of PV panels and wind farms, has been continuously increasing during the last few years. Similarly, a strong development of battery electric vehicles (EV) is expected within the next years. [...]

Abstract

This paper presents an approach for coupling traffic simulators of different resolutions in order to conduct virtual evaluations of advanced driver assistance systems based on vehicular ad hoc networks that are both large scale and a high fidelity. The emphasis is put on the need [...]

Abstract

We are interested in the simulation and optimization of gas transport in networks. Different regions of the network may be modelled by different equations. There are three models based on the Euler equations that describe the gas flow in pipelines qualitatively different: a nonlinear [...]

Abstract

This work presents a coupling between two numerical models, one for mesh generation and the other for heat transfer analysis, used to characterize the tree trunk thermal behaviour located in a forest fire environment. The geometry of the tree trunk is developed, using adaptive mesh [...]
