  1. 1. On failure modelling in finite element analysis material imperfections and element erosion

    University dissertation from Institutionen för konstruktions- och produktionsteknik

    Author : Mattias Unosson; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2005]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; finite element method; element erosion; material failure; material imperfections; crack-tip; TECHNOLOGY Engineering mechanics Solid mechanics; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Teknisk mekanik Fastkroppsmekanik;

    Abstract : This dissertation concerns failure modelling with material imperfections and element erosion in finite element analyses. The aim has been to improve the element erosion technique, which is simple to use and implement and also computationally inexpensive. READ MORE

  2. 2. Modelling Alternative Load Paths in Platform-Framed CLT Buildings A Finite Element Approach

    University dissertation from Luleå : Luleå University of Technology

    Author : Johannes Albert Josef Huber; Luleå tekniska universitet.; [2019]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; timber; robustness; finite element method; alternative load paths; disproportionate collapse; Träteknik; Wood Science and Engineering;

    Abstract : Timber has become more popular as a construction material during recent years. Engineered wood products, such as glued laminated timber and cross-laminated timber, have enabled the construction of multi-storey buildings. Tall buildings with many occupants need to resist a disproportional collapse in case of unexpected exposures, e.g. READ MORE

  3. 3. Adaptive Finite Element Methods for Optimal Control Problems

    University dissertation from Göteborg : Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Karin Kraft; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2011]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; finite element method; discontinuous Galerkin method; optimal control; a posteriori error estimate; dual weighted residual; adaptive; multilevel algorithm; Newton method; control constraint; variational inequality; vehicle dynamics.;

    Abstract : In this thesis we study the numerical solution of optimal control problems. The problems considered consist of a systemof differential equations, the state equations, which are governed bya control variable. The goal is to determine the states and controls which minimize a given cost functional. READ MORE

  4. 4. A hybrid finite element method for electromagnetics with applications in time-domain

    University dissertation from Göteborg : Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : DAVID DEGERFELDT; [2007]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Nitsche s method; antenna arrays; NASA almond; edge elements; scattering; explicit-implicit time-stepping; Maxwell s equations; Finite Element Method; mass lumping; stability analysis; Finite-Differences Time-Domain; periodic structures; shape and material optimization;

    Abstract : In this thesis, a new hybrid method that combines the Finite Element Method (FEM) with the Finite-Difference in Time-Domain (FDTD) method is presented. Tetrahedrons in the unstructured FEM region are connected directly to thehexahedrons in the structured FDTD region. READ MORE

  5. 5. The material distribution method analysis and acoustics applications

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå Universitet

    Author : Fotios Kasolis; Umeå universitet.; [2014]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Material distribution method; fictitious domain method; finite element method; Helmholtz equation; linear elasticity; shape optimization; topology optimization;

    Abstract : For the purpose of numerically simulating continuum mechanical structures, different types of material may be represented by the extreme values {,1}, where 0<1, of a varying coefficient  in the governing equations. The paramter  is not allowed to vanish in order for the equations to be solvable, which means that the exact conditions are approximated. READ MORE
