  1. 1. On the Modelling of Fracture Using Strong Discontinuities

    Author : Martin Fagerström; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : fracture; strong discontinuity; material forces; finite deformations; FEM;

    Abstract : The major concern of this work is the constitutive and numerical modelling of fracture,based on strong discontinuity formulations. More particularly, an extended finiteelement approach is used, where the total displacement is separated in two mutuallyindependent fields, representing the continuous and discontinuous displacement respectively.

  2. 2. Topics in Simulation and Stochastic Analysis

    Author : Mikael Signahl; Matematisk statistik; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Mathematics; Matematik; stochastic heat equation; stochastic wave equation; error rates; truncated Levy process; discontinuities; optimal decay rate; digital communication system;

    Abstract : Paper A investigates how to simulate a differentiated mean in cases where interchanging differentiation and expectation is not allowed. Three approaches are available, finite differences (FD's), infinitesimal perturbation analysis (IPA) and the likelihood ratio score function (LRSF) method. READ MORE

  3. 3. Modelling of large deformation crack propagation based on the extended finite element method

    Author : Martin Fagerström; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; crack propagation; strong discontinuities; material crack driving force; FEM; cohesive zone;

    Abstract : This thesis is concerned with the finite element modelling of large deformation crack propagation, based on the extended finite element methodology. The benefit from this approach is the possibility of locally enriching the finite element space, i.e. to add a priori knowledge about the local behaviour of the solution in order to improve accuracy.

  4. 4. Construction of Adaptive Multistep Methods for Problems with Discontinuities, Invariants, and Constraints

    Author : Fatemeh Mohammadi; Numerisk analys; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; multistep methods; Initialization; beta-blocking; Discontinuity; Time adaptivity; Strong stability preserving; Differential algebraic equations;

    Abstract : Adaptive multistep methods have been widely used to solve initial value problems. These ordinary differential equations (ODEs) may arise from semi-discretization of time-dependent partial differential equations(PDEs) or may combine with some algebraic equations to represent a differential algebraic equations (DAEs).

  5. 5. Dynamic Behaviour of Reinforced Concrete Structures: Analyses with a Strong Discontinuity Approach

    Author : Per-Ola Svahn; []
    Keywords : ; reinforcement; concrete; cohesive crack; anisotropic damage; X-FEM;

    Abstract : Reinforced concrete is a widely used construction material. To obtain efficient design of new structures and to verify the real mechanical behaviour of existing ones, it is necessary to improve the understanding of advanced structural analyses of reinforced concrete structures.
