Liu, Shangru (author)
In this 3D fracture-based topology optimization framework, the author extended the 2D framework on tailoring fracture resistance for brittle materials (Zhang et al., 2022) to 3D. In the optimization, the topology is described by radial basis functions interpolated level set function, and the problem is solved by the Interface-enriched...

The level-set approach in the field of topology optimisation has been studied thoroughly the last two decennia, but there is a lack of challenging standard benchmark problems. Besides two standard benchmark problems, this master's thesis tackles one difficult benchmark problem in particular: the inverter. For every benchmark the minimum...

Corrosion is a phenomenon observed in structural components in corrosive environments such as pipelines, bridges, aircrafts, turbines, etc. The computational model of corrosion should enjoy two features: a) accurately considering the electrochemistry of corrosion and b) properly dealing with the moving interface between solid and electrolyte....

Structural components in corrosive environments such as pipelines, bridges, aircrafts, and turbines are imposed to stress corrosion. A stress corrosion model for pit growth should a) accurately consider the electrochemistry of the corrosion process, b) properly deal with the moving interface between solid and electrolyte, and c) effectively...

This work aims at finding a second order accurate level-set method which solves the Stefan problem with non-homogeneous Dirichlet boundary conditions in one dimension. The numerical accuracy of the FTCS-scheme, BTCS-scheme and Crank-Nicolson scheme for the discretization of the heat equation was considered, as well as the accuracy of the first...

In (mathematical) physics one can encounter problems with a fase change, the so called Stefan problems. Numerical methods to solve these problems often use a level-set function which indicates the distance to the fase boundary. Problems can arise in the medial axis points of the zero set. Therefore it can be usefull to calculate this medial axis...

Efficient combustion processes are indispensable in limiting the temperature increase to 1.5 deg C as set by Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) before 2030 to curtail the effects of global warming. As for the emissions, the main task lies in controlling the air-fuel ratio in the lean regime as to control the emissions of NOx since...

A numerical model for corrosion pit propagation under mechanical loading is presented. The level set method is used for corrosion front tracking and also enables the domain to be split into a solid and a pit domain. In the pit the diffusion of atoms originating from the dissolution process occurring at the pit front is simulated. The model is...

The level-set (LS) method uses a signed-distance function to capture the interface in two-phase flows. Geometrical properties can be easily obtained, and merging and splitting of the interface are handled automatically by the LS method. However, it is not inherently volume conserving. Several methods found in literature that aim to solve this...

Poot, Anne (author)
In this thesis, the basis for a general implementation of the Thick Level Set method is presented. This basis combines the general applicability of the TLS_V1 method by Moës et al. with the improved fracture mechanics of the TLS_V2 method by Lé et al. In order to accomplish this, the topological skeleton needs to be found for an arbitrary...

Many physical phenomena can be described as the evolution of two phases coexisting within the same domain. Examples of such phenomena are the transport of gas and oil, solidification and phase transformations. Each of these phenomena require a description of the dynamics under which the phases change and a technique for tracking the interface...

On the microlevel, cusps are formed during delamination crack growth under mode II loading conditions. In this work, the Thick Level Set (TLS) approach is used to simulate the cusp formation process. A plasticity model for polymers is implemented in the TLS method and a new loading scheme is devised to deal with permanent strain. A numerical...

This master thesis presents the computation of free-surface flow phenomena with emphasis on ship hydromechanics. We perform a simulation of the heave and the pitch motion of the DTMB 5415M ship moving in head sea. To this purpose we employ an existing Arbitrary-Lagrangian-Eulerian residual-based variational multiscale method (ALE-RBVMS) to...

The numerical errors involving the application of the level-set method to a problem can be minimized by fitting a mesh (usually a triangular mesh in two dimensions) to the zero level-set curve defined by the level-set function. These numerical errors depend on two things: the size and skewness of the triangles in the mesh. To fit the mesh, Timo...

In solving two-phase flows, the location of the interface between the phases is necessary to handle interface jump conditions when solving the Navier-Stokes equation. Current interface capturing and advection methods, however, suffer from various issues. The level set method uses the signed distance to the interface and the interface being the...

Wortelboer, Timo (author)
In applying the level-set method in the context of a finite-element method, errors can be minimized by adjusting the mesh to the shape of the level-set curve. The size of the different types of errors that occur depend on the goodness of fit to the zero levelset curve, the skewness of the triangles and the size of the triangles of the mesh. To...

In the work of Den Ouden the level-set method has been used to model the growth and dissolution in a steel alloy of the precipitate cementite and the diffusive phase austenite. The movement of the interface between the two phases is controlled by the diffusion of carbon and a reaction on the interface between the two phases. In this thesis...

This research entails the numerical simulation of physical flow instabilities that can occur in two-phase pipe flows with a new efficient algorithm. The fluids are assumed to be immiscible, and the flow is incompressible and isothermal in a straight circular pipe section with a certain inclination. The numerical algorithm that was developed...
