Abstract
Abstract We present an efficient computational approach composed of forward and inverse analyses that can neatly capture multiple flaw clusters with high accuracy yet low computational effort. The inverse analysis consists of three continuous steps with distinct targets. Firstly, a combination of improved discrete artificial bee colony (IDABC) algorithm and hierarchical clustering analysis (HCA) is applied to seize sub-domains that contain flaw clusters with a conservative number of sensors. Secondly, additional sensors are introduced into the captured sub-domains so that flaw numbers and their rough geometries can be achieved by the IDABC-HCA optimizer. Eventually, the initial guesses of approximate geometries are turned towards the true geometries by using Broyden-Fletcher-Goldfarb-Shanno approach. In addition, a “Queue and Kill” method is used to determine and eliminate incorrect candidate flaws and/or clusters of flaws in the first two steps. The forward analysis is solved through a combination of dynamic extended finite element method (XFEM) enhanced by local mesh refinement, which highly matches the three-step strategy. The local mesh refinement not only improves the computational accuracy of concerning areas, i.e., sub-domains, but also controls the computation amount. Numerical examples demonstrate the effectiveness and robustness of the developed method in detecting multiple flaw clusters.

Abstract The present paper is concerned with numerical simulation of two-dimensional (2-D) cracks and material interfaces by an effective computational approach. A local mesh refinement in terms of extended finite element method is thus described. The new approach combines a posteriori error estimation algorithm, a local non-conformal mesh connection strategy, and local enrichment. An error estimator based on recovery strain for adaptivity is used; allowing the mesh where it is needed is subsequ...

Abstract In this paper, a new effective approach based on conservative integral approach associated with extended finite element method (XFEM) is developed for evaluating stress intensity factors (SIFs) of bi-material V-notched structures. The XFEM model for bi-material V-notches is established, which owns various features: (a) jump enrichment functions are taken for describing the intersection of notch-faces; (b) eight (real eigenvalue) or sixteen (complex eigenvalue) branch functions are emplo...

Abstract This paper presents an effective computational approach comprised of forward and inverse analyses for detection of multiple complex flaw clusters in elastic solids. A three-step detection strategy is introduced for inverse analysis, whereas extended finite element method (XFEM) is adopted for forward analysis. The use of XFEM is to avoid re-meshing during the change of flaw geometries. The three-step detection strategy involves: firstly, an optimization method that couples an improved d...

AbstractThe detection of tunnel lining cracks is a very key procedure in the inspection of tunnels. Traditional image-processing approaches are commonly based on the characteristic that the grayscale value of the crack is a local minimum. However, issues such as low contrast, uneven illumination, and severe noise pollution generally exist in a tunnel lining image. Hence, the traditional image-processing method cannot effectively detect cracks on the tunnel lining surface. This paper presents a t...

Abstract A novel local mesh refinement approach for fracture analysis of three-dimensional (3-D) linear elastic solids is developed, considering both 3-D straight and curved planar cracks. The present local mesh refinement formulation is a combination of the extended finite element method (XFEM), variable-node hexahedron elements, and a posteriori error indicator. Our 3-D formulation using hexahedron elements rigorously embraces a posteriori error estimation scheme, a structural coupling scale-m...

A numerical method for localization and identification of multiple arbitrarily-shaped scatterers (cracks, voids, or inclusions) embedded within heterogeneous linear elastic media is described. An elastodynamic implementation of the extended finite element method (XFEM), which is endowed with a spline-based parameterization of the scatterer boundaries, is employed to solve the forward (wave propagation) problem. This particular combination enables direct, sensitivity-based, and computationally ef...

An algorithm to solve the inverse problem of detecting inclusion interfaces in a piezoelectric structure is proposed. The material interfaces are implicitly represented by level sets which are identified by applying regularization using total variation penalty terms. The inverse problem is solved iteratively and the extended finite element method is used for the analysis of the structure in each iteration. The formulation is presented for three-dimensional structures and inclusions made of diffe...

Abstract During steel strip production, mechanical forces and environmental factors cause surface defects of the steel strip. Therefore, detection of such defects is key to the production of high quality products. Moreover, surface defects of the steel strip cause great economic losses to the high-tech industry. So far, few studies have explored methods of identifying the defects, and most of the currently available algorithms are not sufficiently effective. Therefore, we developed an end-to-end...
