In this article, we present and study a new coupled model combining the biological and the mechanical aspects describing respectively the process of the biogas production and the compressible two-phase leachate-biogas flow during the anaerobic biodegradation of organic matters in a landfill, which is considered a reactive porous medium. The model obtained is governed by a reaction-diffusion system for the bacterial activity coupled with a compressible two-phase flow system of a non-homogeneous porous medium. We carry out the analysis and the numerical approximation of the model within a v

The article considers the features of the drilling process where there is a change in temperature, hole diameter, and displacement relative to the axis and the impact on the tool, when machining holes with high-speed steel drills there is wear of the transverse edge which is completely rounded to create a conical surface. There is a decrease in the negative value of the front corners on the transverse edge of the decrease in axial force, which led to a decrease in the intensity of wear of the transverse edge.
Currently topology optimization is widely used by engineers for different practical problems. Researches by different authors offer algorithms of using cellular automata in these problems, and most recent publications introduce a mesh-refinement procedure to decrease numerical efforts. In this article, we propose to apply a mortar finite element method for solving topology optimization problems using cellular automata. This methodology enables us to handle the non-conforming meshes, which can arise in the refinement process. We present a formulation of the algorithm and analyse its comp
This article dwells upon the multiscale elastic structures consisting of matrix medium and thin coatings or inclusions. The matrix medium is described by the equations of classical elasticity theory, while Timoshenko shell theory is used for the description of the thin parts of the structure. On the interface between media, perfect contact conditions are assumed to hold. The coupled algorithm is developed, based on the boundary element method in the matrix part and on the high order finite element method in the thin parts of the structure. The two methods are coupled using a domain dec

By finite element method was formulated by the implementation of mathematical models for viscoelasticity with regard to the accumulation of irreversible deformation. By object-oriented analysis is designed and implemented software implementation model in the form of documented classes.
Domain decomposition algorithm for solving problems of elasticity based on parallel computing is considered. The global system of equations for the entire domain is not formed and is represented by local matrices and vectors for subdomains using Boolean matrices of connectivity. The system of linear equations is solved by modified conjugate gradient method. The algorithm is implemented with C ++ using parallel MPI library. The results of testing proposed approach for modeling example are included.
