Nonlinear Elasticity in a Deforming Ambient Space

In this paper we formulate a nonlinear elasticity theory in which the ambient space is evolving. For a continuum moving in an evolving ambient space, we model time dependency of the metric by a time-dependent embedding of the ambient space in a larger manifold with a fixed background metric. We derive both the tangential and the normal governing equations. We then reduce the standard energy balance written in the larger ambient space to that in the evolving ambient space.

Transmission and localisation in ordered and randomly-perturbed structured flexural systems

The paper presents a novel analysis of localisation and transmission properties of randomly-perturbed flexural systems. Attention is given to the study of propagation regimes and the connection with localised resonance modes in the context of Anderson's localisation. The analytical study is complemented with numerical simulations relevant to the design of efficient vibration isolation systems.


Eigenvalues, reflected and transmitted energy, localisation factors for the examined bi-coupled random system:

LES and RANS simulation of wind- and wave-forced oceanic turbulent boundary layers in shallow water with wall modeling

Large-eddy simulation (LES) and Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS) simulation of wind and wave forced oceanic turbulence in unstratified shallow water are performed in order to investigate the influence of wall modeling on results. The LES is also used to investigate the dependence of results on downwind and crosswind lengths of the computational domain, representative of a shallow shelf coastal ocean (10-to-30 m deep) unaffected by lateral boundaries.
