The key operation to obtain stationary and transient solutions of transition systems described by Kronecker structured formalisms is the Vector-Descriptor product. This operation is usually performed with shuffling operations and matrices aggregations to reduce the floating point multiplications inside iterative methods. Due to the flexibility of the(More)
The solution of Markovian models is usually non-trivial to be performed using iterative methods, so it is well-fitted to simulation approaches and high performance implementations. The Bootstrap simulation method is a novel simulation technique of Markovian models that brings a considerable improvement in the results accuracy, notwithstanding its higher(More)
Numerical analysis of Markovian models is relevant for performance evaluation and probabilistic analysis of systems’ behavior from several fields in science and engineering. These models can be represented in a compact fashion using Kronecker algebra. The Vector-Descriptor Product (VDP) is the key operation to obtain stationary and transient solutions of(More)
This paper is devoted to procedures for the finite element modeling of straight beams and rectangular plates treated with a surface damping treatment known as constraining damping layer, which is formed by a film of viscoelastic material inserted between the base structure and a thin metal sheet. It has been demonstrated that this type of treatment is very(More)
Two dimensional numerical simulations of flow around a rotationally oscillating circular cylinder were performed at Re = 1000. A wide range of forcing frequencies, fr, and three values of oscillation amplitudes, A, are considered. Different vortex shedding modes are observed for a fixed A at several values of fr, as well as for a fixed fr at different(More)
In this paper, numerical simulations of incompressible flows around rotating circular cylinders have been performed. The two-dimensional Navier-Stokes equations are solved by using a Cartesian non-uniform grid. The Immersed Boundary Method (IBM) with the Virtual Physical Model (VPM) was used in order to model the presence of the circular cylinder in the(More)
Numerical analysis of Markovian models is relevant for performance evaluation and probabilistic analysis of systems' behavior from several fields such as Bioinformatics, Economics, and Engineering.

The effective design of viscoelastic dampers as applied to real-world complex engineering structures can be conveniently carried out by using modern multiobjective numerical optimization techniques. The large number of evaluations of the cost functions normally combined with the typically high dimensions of finite element models of industrial structures(More)
