New Results in Numerical and Experimental Fluid Mechanics IV: Contributions to the 13th STAB/DGLR Symposium Munich, Germany 2002

This quantity comprises fifty nine papers provided on the thirteenth Symposium of STAB (German Aerospace Aerodynamics Association). during this organization, all these German scientists and engineers from universities, examine institutions and are concerned who're doing study and venture paintings in numerical and experimental fluid mechanics and aerodynamics, more often than not for aerospace but in addition in different purposes.

The 1st version of this publication used to be released in 1978 and a brand new Spanish e(,tition in 1989. whilst the 1st version seemed, Professor A. Martin urged that an English translation might meet with curiosity. including Professor A. S. Wightman, he attempted to persuade an American writer to translate the publication.

The normal stress in x3 -direction T33 does not necessarily vanish in this case. The essential difference from a disk in plane stress state is the different strainstress relation. 28) must be used. 49) results. The deformation of a thin plate, which is subjected to a vertical load (see Fig. 13), can under certain conditions also be formulated as a twodimensional problem.

We will give here two other ones that are important in connection with different numerical methods. We restrict ourselves to the steady case. 30) with a test function ϕ = ϕi ei , which vanishes at the boundary part Γ1 , and integration over the problem domain Ω yields: (λ+μ) ∂ 2 uj ∂ 2 ui ϕi dΩ + +μ ∂xi ∂xj ∂xj ∂xj Ω ρfi ϕi dΩ = 0 . 31) one gets: (λ+μ) ∂uj ∂ui +μ ∂xi ∂xj Ω ∂ϕi dΩ = ∂xj Tij nj ϕi dΓ + Γ ρfi ϕi dΩ . 32) the corresponding part in the surface integral vanishes and in the remaining part over Γ2 for Tij nj the prescribed stress tbi can be inserted.

35) the stress boundary condition Tij nj = tbi on Γ2 is not enforced explicitly, but is implicitly contained in the corresponding boundary integral over Γ2 . The solutions fulfill this boundary condition automatically, albeit only in a weak (integral) sense. With respect to the construction of a numerical method, this can be considered as an advantage since only (the more simple) displacement boundary conditions ui = ubi on Γ1 have to be considered explicitly. In this context, the stress boundary conditions are also called natural boundary conditions, whereas in the case of displacements boundary conditions one speaks about essential or geometric boundary conditions.
