We present a technique to couple finite element and finite sphere discretizations. The finite elements and finite spheres are coupled with full displacement compatibility. We also present a technique in which a finite element discretization is enriched with finite spheres. We consider two-dimensional conditions and present solutions to illustrate the(More)
During the last ten years, various meshless techniques have been developed to solve complex boundary value problems. However, there is still not yet an efficient meshless method available for general linear static analysis. The method of finite spheres is a promising meshless technique with respect to efficiency and applicability [1]. In this paper,(More)
As a type of broadband source of ultrasonic guided waves, laser pulses can be used to launch all modes of interests. In this paper, Lamb waves are excited by imposing heat flux mimicking the supply of the heat from laser pulses, and effects by defects on the received Lamb waves in a plate are investigated by means of the finite element method. In order to(More)
A finite element analysis code FEAP is parallelized using the OpenMP library, and the performance is evaluated. The essential concepts of the OpenMP for the implementation of the parallelization are described and then our parallelization procedures are presented. The skeleton of FEAP is analyzed and the subroutines that need to be parallelized are(More)
Understanding the mechanical behavior of the arterial wall and its spatial variations is essential for the study of vascular physiopathology and the design of biomedical devices that interact with the arterial wall. Although it is generally accepted that the aortic wall gets stiffer along its length, the spatial variations in the mechanical behavior of the(More)
This Letter proposes a mechanical impedance (MI) measurement technique using noncontact laser ultrasound. The ultrasound is generated by shooting a pulse laser beam onto a target structure, and its response is measured using a laser vibrometer. Once ultrasound propagation converges to structural vibration, MI is formed over the entire structure. Because(More)
The layer splitting mechanism of a proton implanted single crystal ferroelectric BaTiO3 thin film layer from its bulk BaTiO3 substrate has been investigated. The single crystal BaTiO3 thin film layer splits as the hydrogen gas diffuses and the internal cavity pressure increases. Ripening mechanism driven by the pressurized hydrogen in the(More)
