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–...

End effect on determining shear modulus of timber beams in torsion tests

Journal Article
Gharavi, N., Zhang, H., Xie, Y., & He, T. (2018)
End effect on determining shear modulus of timber beams in torsion tests. Construction and Building Materials, 164, 442-450. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.conbuildmat.2017.12.191
The end effect plays an important role in determining where the rotation measuring gauges should be located in a torsion test. A thorough review on the impact of end effect in...

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 ...

Study on the Impact of Size and Position of the Shear Field in Determining the Shear Modulus of Glulam Beam Using Photogrammetry Approach

Journal Article
Gharavi, N., & Zhang, H. (2018)
Study on the Impact of Size and Position of the Shear Field in Determining the Shear Modulus of Glulam Beam Using Photogrammetry Approach. International Journal of Civil, Environmental, Structural, Construction and Architectural Engineering, 12(3), 194-198. https://doi.org/10.1999/1307-6892/10008636
The shear modulus of a timber beam can be determined using torsion test or shear field test method. The shear field test method is based on shear distortion measurement of the...
