This paper presents a complete model and its implementation as a software tool for simulating the dynamic behavior of reed valves in compressors. A beam Finite Element model with up to 30 degrees of freedom was developed to cover the natural frequencies of the reed valve in conjunction with a contact model for reed stops of arbitrary shape. This algorithm(More)
For sedimentation of miscible drops through quiescent liquid of the same viscosity, a recent paper [J. Fluid. Mech. 447 (2001) 299] has shown the effectiveness of computer simulations based upon a swarm of point forces in tracking coalescence, mixing and rupture. Robustness of the approach was offset by the slow O(N2 p ) summations needed to calculate the(More)
