Abstract

In the production environment, there are many disruptions, such as machine breakdown, rush orders, and so on. Under these circumstances, the shipyards have to meet customer demand. If this is not done, the shipyard may face customer loss, since they cannot meet the deadline. So, [...]

Abstract

The class of physical problems of metal structures subject to rapid, large amplitude loads, such as occurs when they are submitted to an explosion blast, involves large deformations and inelastic action. Current state of art in explicit dynamic Finite Element Analysis codes require [...]

Abstract

This paper presents the development of a computational tool for the simulation of flow behavior in the fin-and-tube heat exchangers with phase change in the coolant side, for which the finite volume method was used for exchanger modeling and representation of the connection of [...]

Abstract

This article discusses the measurement and simulation of a first generation prototype of Virtual Natural Lighting Solutions (VNLS), which are systems that can artificially provide natural lighting as well as a realistic outside view, with properties comparable to those of real windows [...]

Abstract

The parametric study of the indoor environment of green buildings focuses on the quantitative and qualitative improvement of residential building construction in China and the achievement of indoor thermal comfort at a low level of energy use. This study examines the effect of the [...]

Abstract

In the copper sulfides smelting process, the Teniente-type converter generates highly corrosive and toxic gases, which is why treating them is crucial in order to avoid environmental damage. The present study proposes a new methodology to simulate the capture and cooling system [...]

Abstract

The scope of this publication covers engineering systems that provide support and help in the design of civil infrastructure, and to the natural disasters and accidents caused by human [...]

Abstract

Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to evaluate the possibilities of the particle finite element method for simulation of free surface flows.

Design/methodology/approach – A numerical simulation of a number of examples for which experimental data are available [...]

Abstract

Presents a numerical strategy for the aerodynamic analysis of large buildings, with an application to the simulation of the air flow within a telescope building. The finite element formulation [...]

Abstract

This paper presents numerical modelling of rock cutting processes. The model consists of a tool–rock system. The rock is modelled using the discrete element method, which is suitable [...]
