Default Arbitrary Lagrangian_Eulerian Method
Posts: n/a
I am doing simulation of flows which has a wide range of seppd and from some reference i know it is best to use Arbitrary Lagrangian-Eulerian method, but in our university, i can not get any information in it, so a ask for help, Wolud you please telling me where to get some information on this method. You can also mail me a e-paper. Thanks

Hi LiQiang, I can indicate you these papers:

-Hirt, C.W., A.A. Amsden, and J.L. Cook, "An Arbitrary Lagrangian-Eulerian Computing Method for All Flow Speeds," J. Comp. Phys., Vol. 14, p. 227, 1974.

-Amsden, A.A., H.M. Ruppel, and C.W. Hirt, "SALE: A Simplified ALE Computer Program for Fluid Flow at All Speeds," Los Alamos National Laboratory Report LA-8095, 1980.

Also, you may want to look for KIVA-3v2 which is derived by SALE. It is distributed by NEA ( to universities, researchers and research institutes. A paper introducing the code is

-Amsden, A.A., "KIVA-3: A KIVA Program with Block Structured Mesh for Complex Geometries," Los Alamos National Laboratory Report LA-12503-MS, March 1993.

hi, Andrea:

But how can I get the Los Alamos National Laboratory Reports? I don't think they can be published publicly.Do you have some ways for getting it?

Hi I had not checked this forum in ages, so I hope this is not too late. You may find the following papers useful and some are avaialable on line. Nomura, T. and Hughes, T.J.R., 1992, "An Arbitrary Lagrangian-Eulerian Finite Element Method for Interaction of Fluid and a Rigid Body". Computer Methods in Applied Mechanics and Engineering, Vol. 95, pp. 115-138. Sung, J., Choi, H.G. and Yoo, J.Y., 1999, "Finite Element Simulation of Thin Liquid Film Flow and Heat Transfer Including a Hydraulic Jump", International Journal for Numerical Methods in Engineering, Vol. 46, pp. 83-101. Sung, J., Choi, H.G. and Yoo, J.Y., 2000, "Time-Accurate Computation of Unsteady Free Surface Flows Using an ALE-Segregated Equal-Order FEM", Computer Methods in Applied Mechanics and Engineering, Vol. 190, pp. 1425-1440. Th¨¦, J.L., Raithby, G.D. and Stubley, G.D. 1994, "Surface-Adaptive Finite-Volume Method for Solving Free Surface Flows", Numerical Heat Transfer, Part B: Fundamentals", Vol. 26, pp. 367-380. Zhou, J.G. and Stansby, P.K., 1999, "An Arbitrary Lagrangian-Eulerian ¦̉ (ALES) Model with Non-Hydrostatic Pressure for Shallow Water Flows", Journal of Computer Methods in Applied Mechanics and Engineering, Vol. 178, pp 199-214. Lesoinne, M. and Farhat, C., 1996, "Geometric Conservation Laws for Flow Problems with Moving Boundaries and Deformable Meshes, and Their Impact on Aeroelastic Computations" Computer Methods in Applied Mechanics and Engineering, Vol. 134, pp. 71-90.
