  1. 1. Energy-momentum conserving time-stepping algorithms for nonlinear dynamics of planar and spatial Euler-Bernoulli/Timoshenko beams

    Author : Sophy Chhang; Jean-Marc Battini; Mohammed Hjiaj; Reijo Kouhia; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Nonlinear Dynamics; Energy-momentum conserving scheme; 2D co-rotational beam; Geometrically exact 3D Euler-Bernoulli beam; impact; Civil and Architectural Engineering; Byggvetenskap;

    Abstract : Large deformations of flexible beams can be described using either the co-rotational approach or the total Lagrangian formalism. The co-rotational method is an attractive approach to derive highly nonlinear beam elements because it combines accuracy with numerical efficiency. READ MORE

  2. 2. Nonlinear dynamics of flexible structures using corotational beam elements

    Author : Thanh-Nam Le; Jean-Marc Battini; Reijo Kouhia; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; corotational method; nonlinear dynamics; large displacements; finite rotations; time stepping method; thin-walled cross-section; beam element;

    Abstract : The purpose of this thesis is to develop corotational beam elements for the nonlinear dynamic analyse of flexible beam structures. Whereas corotational beam elements in statics are well documented, the derivation of a corotational dynamic formulation is still an issue. READ MORE

  3. 3. Inflation Mechanics of Hyperelastic Membranes

    Author : Amit Patil; Anders Eriksson; Arne Nordmark; Reijo Kouhia; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Membrane Mechanics; Inflation; Adhesive Contact; Instabilities; Bifurcation; Limit Point; Teknisk mekanik; Engineering Mechanics;

    Abstract : The applications of inflatable membrane structures are increasing rapidly in the various fields of engineering and science. The geometric, material, force and contact non-linearities complicate this subject further, which in turn increases the demand for computationally efficient methods and interpretations of counter-intuitive behaviors noted by the  scientific community.
