High Order Shape Design Sensitivity: A Unified Approach
[Abstract] Three basic analytical approaches have been proposed for the calculation of sen- sitivity derivatives in shape optimization problems. The first approach is based on differentiation of the discretized equations ...
A general numerical model for grounding analysis in layered soils
[Abstract] Safety of persons, protection and equipment and continuity of power supply are the main objectives of the grounding system of a large electrical installation. For its accurate design, it is essential to determine ...
On the Galerkin formulation of the smoothed particle hydrodynamics method
(John Wiley and Sons, 2004)
[Abstract] In this paper, we propose a Galerkin-based smoothed particle hydrodynamics (SPH) formulation with moving least-squares meshless approximation, applied to free surface flows. The Galerkin scheme provides a clear ...
Computer analysis of earthing systems in horizontally or vertically layered soils
[Abstract] The main objectives of grounding systems are to guarantee the personal safety, the equipment protection and the continuity of the power supply. To attain these goals, the potential distribution on the earth ...
A boundary element formulation for the substation grounding design
[Abstract] A Boundary Element approach for the numerical computation of substation grounding systems is presented. In this general formulation, several widespread intuitive methods (such as Average Potential Method) can ...
