Recueil de mécanique


The ''Recueil de mécanique'' abbreviated RDM is an international, peer-reviewed journal. It is edited by El-Wancharissi university of Tissemsilt. Either English or French written paper are accepted for review. RDM is an open access journal which means that all content is freely available without charge. Users are allowed to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, or link to the full texts of the articles in this journal without asking prior permission from the publisher or the author. Focus and Scope: The periodic covers a significant number of thematic. For illustration and not limited to the following topics are treated: -power plants (conventional and hybrid, stationary and on board); -thermal science; -thermodynamics; -fluid mechanics; -mathematical modeling of systems and processes;-renewable energy (solar, wind, geothermal, tidal powered, etc ...) processes and technologies; -mechanical contacts and tribology; -machines dynamics, vibration, acoustic and maintenance; -engineering; -aerospace engineering; -automotive engineering; -computational mechanics; -industrial and manufacturing engineering; -mechanical engineering; -...etc. In addition to original articles, the journal is also dedicating special issues to seminars and colloquium works. Peer Review Process: The ''Recueil de mécanique'' operates a double blind review process. All contributions will be initially assessed by the editor for suitability for the journal. Papers deemed suitable are then typically sent by the editor or the associated editors to a minimum of two independent expert reviewers to assess the scientific quality of the paper. The Editor is responsible for the final decision regarding acceptance or rejection of articles. Publication Frequency: The ''Recueil de mécanique'' is published twice a year in December and July with two regular issues (not including special issues) and one volume per year. RDM is indexed in Sherpa/Romeo, ULRICHSWEB and Copernicus databases.







Numerical investigation of the structural integrity of a flexible plate considering the fluid-structure interaction

Mellel Nacim,  Mohammedi Brahim, 

Résumé: In this study a numerical verification of the integrity of a flexible plate taking into account its interaction with the fluid (FSI) is presented. The bi-directional partitioned FSI approach is applied to a test case of 3D fluid flow at medium Reynolds number. The results obtained by coupling the ANSYS Transient Mechanics and ANSYS Fluent codes show that the results of the fluid flow velocity and pressure profiles are approximately close to those obtained by the MpCCI code. The elastic instability of the plate and the flow disturbances that can destroy the plate are predicted by evaluating the Strouhal frequency of the fluid flow and the natural frequency of the plate. The results obtained for van Mises stress and structural deformation were found to be below safety and design limits.
