We present the application of a meshfree method for simulations of interaction between fluids and flexible structures. As a flexible structure we consider a sheet of paper. In a two-dimensional framework this sheet can be modeled as curve by the dynamical Kirchhoff-Love theory. The external forces taken into account are gravitation and the pressure difference between upper and lower surface of the sheet. This pressure difference is computed using the Finite Pointset Method (FPM) for the… CONTINUE READING

First, the fiber thicknesses, porosity and anisotropy of the fiber system are modified

  • Then the flow and acoustics simulations are performed in the new sample. These two steps are repeatedc for various sets of parameters. Finally, the set of parameters for the geometric model leading to the best acoustic absorption is chosen. Keywords: random system of fibers, Poisson line process, fl

a classical location–allocation approach combined with optimal split resolution techniques and a newly developed computational geometry based method

J. Kalcsics, S. Nickel, +4 authors present in detail two approaches for solving this model
  • We present computational results indicating the efficiency and suitability of the latter method for solving large–scale practical problems in an interactive environment. Furthermore, we discuss extensions to the basic model and its integration into Geographic Information Systems. Keywords: territory

First, the discretization of the continuous problem is based on an adaptive hierarchical clustering process which is used for a local refinement of constraints during the optimization procedure

T. Bortfeld, K.-H. Küfer, +11 authors we model the upcoming inverse problem as a multi-crit twofold
  • Second, the set of Pareto optimal solutions is approximated by an adaptive grid of representatives that are found by a hybrid process of calculating extreme compromises and interpolation methods.
