The paper describes efficient methods to post-process results from the finite element analysis. Amount of data produced by the complex analysis is enormous. However, computer performance and memory are limited and commonly-used software tools do not provide ways to post-process data easily. Therefore, some sort of simplification of data has to be used to lower memory consumption and accelerate data loading. This article describes a procedure that replaces discrete values with a set of continuous functions. Each approximation function can be represented by a small number of parameters that are able to describe the character of resulting data closely enough.

The measurements done on magnetic bearings usually give higher losses than have been expected through the simulations. One of the reasons for the difference might be that the stresses introduced by mechanical or thermal treatments are not taken into account when a model is developed. In this paper, a core loss model of the magnetic bearings, taking the stresses in the laminations of the rotor into account is proposed. The model is used in the finite element analysis of radial magnetic bearings.

Abstract

In the present study, the performance of concrete sandwich panel against fire and axial load has been considered. A finite element model of a sandwich wall is presented and evaluated the performance under different temperature (200, 400, 600 °C. The ratio of width, thickness and length of wall are constant and the axial load enters on the top of wall. The maximum displacement and stress in different models shows the capacity of wall is increased at high temperature. The displacement has dramatically increased at temperature loading of 800 °C and it has gained which shows poor efficiency of wall at high temperatures.

This paper deals with the numerical solution of a two-dimensional (2-D) magnetostatic field problem. Thereby, a finite element method (FEM) with the magnetic vector potential as field variable and a discretization with edge elements is used. For the efficient solution of the obtained matrix equation system, a geometric multigrid solver (MG) is presented which reduces the number of iterations considerably.

Abstract

In the context of verification of civil engineering structures stability and determination of sliding surface and safety factor, a careful analysis of several parameters was carried out to guarantee their safety against failure. To quantitatively forecast failure scope, the embankment dam located on Oued Rhiss in the province of Hocemia is chosen as the model of this study. A static stability analysis is performed by using the Slope/W software. A parametric study performed to evaluate the influence of dam's height, the height of water in the reservoir and the length of drains on the safety coefficient and pore pressures. Reliability analysis elaborated by using the Comrel application, and it allows to statistically quantifying the probability of failure by employing the Monte Carlo distribution. Results show that the dam structure has some weak zones and not strong enough as the safety factor is less than one, it is related to structure's parameters and the drainage system.

An actual problem of fabrication of pre-stressed concrete prefabricated elements is presented in this article. The steel form could be more than 100 m long. Inserting the polystyrene plates ten or more prefabricates can be produced in one step. The horizontal deformations represent a special problem. The simplification of the elastic support as the friction effect is introduced. The non-linear solution has been used.

Abstract

This paper studies the presence effects of two or more adjacent structures on the tunnel responses and vice versa due to surface and underground traffic loads. The study is numerically carried out by using Finite element Plaxis2D software©. The obtained results demonstrate that the dynamical interaction between the tunnel and the structures is significantly influenced by varying the number and distance between the adjacent structures, the depth of the tunnel and the location of the traffic load. These results can be considered and used in realistic and practical cases and also to help build efficient and more comfortable construction projects.
