Some problems regarding numerical modeling of predicted vibrations excited by railway traffic are discussed. Model formulation in the field of structural mechanics comprises a vehicle, a track (often in a tunnel) and soil. Time consuming computations are needed to update large matrices at every discrete step. At first, a sequential Matlab code is generated. Later on, the formulation is modified to use grid computing, thereby a significant reduction in computational time is expected.

A coupled finite/boundary element method to approximate the free vibration modes of an elastic structure containing an incompressible fluid is analyzed in this paper. The effect of the fluid is taken into account by means of one of the most usual procedures in engineering practice: an added mass formulation, which is posed in terms of boundary integral equations. Piecewise linear continuous elements are used to discretize the solid displacements and the fluid-solid interface variables. Spectral...

With the tools of modern metrology we can measure almost all variables in the phenomenon field of a working machine, and many of the measured quantities can be symptoms of machine conditions. On this basis, we can form a symptom observation matrix (SOM) intended for condition monitoring and wear trend (fault) identification. On the other hand, we know that contemporary complex machines may have many modes of failure, called faults. The paper presents a method of the extraction of the information...

This paper deals with a finite element method to solve fluid-structure interaction problems. More precisely it concerns the numerical computation of harmonic hydroelastic vibrations under gravity. It is based on a displacement formulation for both the fluid and the solid. Gravity effects are included on the free surface of the fluid as well as on the liquid-solid interface. The pressure of the fluid is used as a variable for the theoretical analysis leading to a well posed mixed linear eigenvalue...

We investigate the stability of Bravais lattices and their Cauchy–Born approximations under periodic perturbations. We formulate a general interaction law and derive its Cauchy–Born continuum limit. We then analyze the atomistic and Cauchy–Born stability regions, that is, the sets of all matrices that describe a stable Bravais lattice in the atomistic and Cauchy–Born models respectively. Motivated by recent results in one dimension on the stability of atomistic/continuum coupling methods, we analyze...
