New vertical steel storage tanks founded on a shallow foundation of a crushed rock ring are planned at the same location of former storage tanks. The dimensions, loads and foundation of the new tanks are identical to the old tanks which were erected 40 years ago and demolished a few years ago. Despite the fact that the new tanks are identical to...

In many geotechnical projects, field data is used to determine the soil parameters. In most instances, however, the statistical analysis is performed ad hoc and the spatial distribution of this data is not (expclitly) accounted for. A more formal statistical approach allows to make better use of the data and combine it in a consistent manner...

Using recently obtained deterministic results as a benchmark, probabilistic slope stability analyses have been performed on an undrained slope using the random finite element method (RFEM). Non-stationary random fields have been generated with linearly increasing mean undrained strength and a constant coefficient of variation. The influence of...

Long slopes with variable material properties have a variety of different failure modes that are affected by the correlation distances of the material properties and the geometry and total length of the slope. This work follows previous research examining the consequences of increasing slope length, in which analyses were limited by the...

We describe recent developments in the design and implementation of finite element methods for the compressible Navier-Stokes equations modeling chemically reactive flows. The emphasize is on the low-Mach number regime including the limit case of incompressible flow. The most important ingredients are appropriate finite element discretizations,...

We study the fluid-structure coupled problem between an incompressible fluid and an elastic curved arch. The fluid flow is modeled by 2-D steady Stokes equations with normal velocity boundary condition on the curved interface and the arch verifies a particular 1-D case of the thin shell theory of Koiter. We present an optimal control formulation...

This paper presents a hierarchy of compressible two-phase flow models. It is shown that using Chapman-Enskog expansions in the limit of zero relaxation time toward the various equilibria that exist in these flows, a full set of models of decreasing complexity can be constructed. At the top of this hierarchy, we have a complete seven equation...

An improvement of the classical finite element method is proposed. It considers an exact representation of the geometry by means of the usual CAD description of the boundary with Non-Uniform Rational B-Splines (NURBS). For elements not intersecting the boundary, a standard finite element interpolation and numerical integration is used....

The Maxwell equations in the MHD limit in heterogeneous domains composed of conducting and nonconducting regions are solved by using Lagrange finite elements and by enforcing continuities across interfaces using an interior penalty technique. The method is shown to be stable and convergent and is validated by convergence tests. It is used to...

The simulation of multiphysical scenarios has become a more and more important task of scientific computing within the last years. Due to their simplicity compared to monolithic approaches (solving a unique model for the whole scenario), partitioned approaches are widespread. They allow for a reusage of existing and established solvers for the...

This work is devoted to the accurate simulation of incompressible two phase flows. The core of our methodology is the use of interface resolving meshes and the arbitrary Lagrangian-Eulerian (ALE) description of the fluid kinematics. Our numerical scheme is based on second order finite elements, a fractional step ? time discretisation, and a...
