  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; Larsgunnar Nilsson; Kjell Simonsson; Lars Olovsson; Anders Eriksson; [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. Simulation of contact, friction and wear in gears : a finite element approach

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköpings universitet

    Author : Olle Lundvall; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2000]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Gears; Gear noise; Contact mechanics; Simulation; Friction; Wear; Transmission error;

    Abstract : In this thesis, resent methods in computational contact mechanics is brought into the process of gear design. The finite element method is used to model two elastic bodies in contact. By defining a contact interface between these two bodies, constitutive laws, regarding normal contact, friction and wear, are included. READ MORE

  4. 4. High-Performance Finite Element Methods with Application to Simulation of Diffusion MRI and Vertical Axis Wind Turbines

    University dissertation from KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Van-Dang Nguyen; KTH.; [2018]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; High performance finite element method; computational diffusion MRI; turbulent flow; vertical axis wind turbine.; Datalogi; Computer Science;

    Abstract : The finite element methods (FEM) have been developed over decades, and together with the growth of computer engineering, they become more and more important in solving large-scale problems in science and industry. The objective of this thesis is to develop high-performance finite element methods (HP-FEM), with two main applications in mind: computational diffusion magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and simulation of the turbulent flow past a vertical axis wind turbine (VAWT).

  5. 5. Waveguide Finite Elements Applied on a Car Tyre

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Farkost och flyg

    Author : Carl-Magnus Nilsson; KTH.; [2004]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; wave equation; wave solution; waveguide; finite element; spectral finite element; tyre noise; tyre vibration; input power; shells; pre stress; fluid shell coupling; axi--symmetric;

    Abstract : Structures acting as waveguides are quite common withexamples being, construction beams, fluid filled pipes, railsand extruded aluminium profiles. Curved structures like cartyres and pipe-bends may also be considered as waveguides. Wavesolutions in such structures may be found by a method calledthe Waveguide Finite Element Method or WFEM.
