3D monolithic finite element approach for aero-thermics processes in industrial furnaces⋆

E. Hachem, E. Massoni, T. Coupez (2011)

ESAIM: Proceedings

We consider in this paper a mathematical and numerical model to design an industrial software solution able to handle real complex furnaces configurations in terms of geometries, atmospheres, parts positioning, heat generators and physical thermal phenomena. A three dimensional algorithm based on stabilized finite element methods (SFEM) for solving the momentum, energy, turbulence and radiation equations is presented. An immersed volume method (IVM) for thermal coupling of fluids and solids is introduced...

A Legendre Spectral Collocation Method for the Biharmonic Dirichlet Problem

Bernard Bialecki, Andreas Karageorghis (2010)

ESAIM: Mathematical Modelling and Numerical Analysis

A Legendre spectral collocation method is presented for the solution of the biharmonic Dirichlet problem on a square. The solution and its Laplacian are approximated using the set of basis functions suggested by Shen, which are linear combinations of Legendre polynomials. A Schur complement approach is used to reduce the resulting linear system to one involving the approximation of the Laplacian of the solution on the two vertical sides of the square. The Schur complement system is solved by a...

A new formulation of the Stokes problem in a cylinder, and its spectral discretization

Nehla Abdellatif, Christine Bernardi (2010)

ESAIM: Mathematical Modelling and Numerical Analysis

We analyze a new formulation of the Stokes equations in three-dimensional axisymmetric geometries, relying on Fourier expansion with respect to the angular variable: the problem for each Fourier coefficient is two-dimensional and has six scalar unknowns, corresponding to the vector potential and the vorticity. A spectral discretization is built on this formulation, which leads to an exactly divergence-free discrete velocity. We prove optimal error estimates.

A numerical study on Neumann-Neumann methods for hp approximations on geometrically refined boundary layer meshes II. Three-dimensional problems

Andrea Toselli, Xavier Vasseur (2006)

ESAIM: Mathematical Modelling and Numerical Analysis

In this paper, we present extensive numerical tests showing the performance and robustness of a Balancing Neumann-Neumann method for the solution of algebraic linear systems arising from hp finite element approximations of scalar elliptic problems on geometrically refined boundary layer meshes in three dimensions. The numerical results are in good agreement with the theoretical bound for the condition number of the preconditioned operator derived in [Toselli and Vasseur, IMA J. Numer. Anal.24 (2004)...

A reduced basis element method for the steady Stokes problem

Alf Emil Løvgren, Yvon Maday, Einar M. Rønquist (2006)

ESAIM: Mathematical Modelling and Numerical Analysis

The reduced basis element method is a new approach for approximating the solution of problems described by partial differential equations. The method takes its roots in domain decomposition methods and reduced basis discretizations. The basic idea is to first decompose the computational domain into a series of subdomains that are deformations of a few reference domains (or generic computational parts). Associated with each reference domain are precomputed solutions corresponding to the same...
