Purpose – Porous concrete is a mixture of open‐graded coarse aggregate, water and cement. It is also occasionally referred to as no‐fines concrete or pervious concrete. Due to its high infiltration capacity, it is viewed as an environmentally sustainable paving material for use in urban drainage...
Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to develop a computational technique to couple finite element and meshfree methods for locking‐free analysis of shear deformable beams and plates, and to impose the boundary conditions directly when the matching field approach is adopted in the meshfree...
Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to find the efficient iterative methods for solving the general matrix equation A1X + XA2 + A3XH + XHA4 = B (including Lyapunov and Sylvester matrix equations as special cases) with the unknown complex (reflexive) matrix X . Design/methodology/approach – By...
Purpose – The initial stiffness method has been extensively adopted for elasto‐plastic finite element analysis. The main problem associated with the initial stiffness method, however, is its slow convergence, even when it is used in conjunction with acceleration techniques. The Newton‐Raphson...
Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to address the problem of scheduling under uncertainty in construction projects. The existing methods for determining a project schedule are based on assumption of complete knowledge of project parameters; but in reality there is uncertainty in construction...
Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to present a new special element model for thermal analysis of composites. Design/methodology/approach – A hybrid finite element formulation taking the fundamental solution as kernel function is presented in this work for analyzing the thermal behavior and...
