Evaluation of the End Effect Impact on the Torsion Test for Determining the Shear Modulus of a Timber Beam through a Photogrammetry Approach

Journal Article
Gharavi, N., Zhang, H., & Xie, Y. (2017)
Evaluation of the End Effect Impact on the Torsion Test for Determining the Shear Modulus of a Timber Beam through a Photogrammetry Approach. Proceedings of the World Academy of Science, Engineering and Technology, 11(3), 666-669
The timber beam end effect in the torsion test is evaluated using binocular stereo vision system. It is recommended by BS EN 408:2010+A1:2012 to exclude a distance of two to t...

A smoothed finite element approach for computational fluid dynamics: applications to incompressible flows and fluid–structure interaction

Journal Article
He, T., Zhang, H., & Zhang, K. (2018)
A smoothed finite element approach for computational fluid dynamics: applications to incompressible flows and fluid–structure interaction. Computational Mechanics, https://doi.org/10.1007/s00466-018-1549-x
In this paper the cell-based smoothed finite element method (CS-FEM) is introduced into two mainstream aspects of computational fluid dynamics: incompressible flows and fluid–...

The use of artificial compressibility to improve partitioned semi-implicit FSI coupling within the classical Chorin–Témam projection framework

Journal Article
He, T., Wang, T., & Zhang, H. (2018)
The use of artificial compressibility to improve partitioned semi-implicit FSI coupling within the classical Chorin–Témam projection framework. Computers and Fluids, 166, 64-77. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.compfluid.2018.01.022
Over the last decade the classical Chorin–Témam projection method has been utilized to address fluid- structure interaction in a semi-implicit manner. In previous studies the ...
