Abstract

A numerical study was conducted using the finite difference technique to examine the mechanism of energy transfer as well as turbulence in the case of turbulent flow fully developed in the channel with substantially constant wall temperature and constant heat flow conditions. The [...]

Abstract

A traffic congestion forecasting model (ATOP), developed in the present investigation, is described briefly. Several macroscopic models, based on the solution of the partial differential equation of conservation of vehicles by the finite difference method, were tested using actual [...]

Abstract

This article proposes a parallel implementation using a multicore environment with MPI to the solution of the linear system resulting from the discretization of the Poisson equation [...]

Abstract

Transient pressure investigation of water-hydraulic pipelines is a challenge in the fluid transmission field, since the flow continuity equation and momentum equation are partial differential, and the vaporous cavitation has high dynamics; the frictional force caused by fluid viscosity [...]

Abstract

In order to reduce the discretization error, in this paper, Richardson’s Extrapolation and Convergence Error Estimator were used to investigating the buckling problem convergence. The main objective was to verify the convergence order of the stepped column [...]

Abstract

In this work, full stress tensor components regarding stress state for a simmetrical composite laminate under uniform uniaxial extension have been determined. Off-plane stresses are specially meaningful due to the fact that they are responsible for failure mechanisms such as delamination [...]
