Wrinkles are ubiquitous in the world around us. In our daily lives, we encounter wrinkles in various forms, whether in our clothes or on our skin. Wrinkles emerge as a result of a delicate interplay between bending, membrane, and foundation stiffness contributions within membranes. While experimental investigations provide insights into the...

Parallel computing is omnipresent in today's scientific computer landscape, starting at multicore processors in desktop computers up to massively parallel clusters. While domain decomposition methods have a long tradition in computational mechanics to decompose spatial problems into multiple subproblems that can be solved in parallel, advancing...

Mesh adaptivity is a technique to provide detail in numerical solutions without the need to refine the mesh over the whole domain. Mesh adaptivity in isogeometric analysis can be driven by Truncated Hierarchical B-splines (THB-splines) which add degrees of freedom locally based on finer B-spline bases. Labeling of elements for refinement is...

The present study aims to develop an original solid-like shell element for large deformation analysis of hyperelastic shell structures in the context of isogeometric analysis (IGA). The presented model includes a new variable to describe the thickness change of the shell and allows for the application of unmodified three-dimensional...

The computation of periodic flows is typically conducted over multiple periods. First, a number of periods is used to develop periodic characteristics, and afterwards statistics are collected from averages over multiple periods. As a consequence, it is uncertain whether the numerical results are exactly time-periodic, and additionally, the...

In order to perform isogeometric analysis with increased smoothness on complex domains, trimming, variational coupling or unstructured spline methods can be used. The latter two classes of methods require a multi-patch segmentation of the domain, and provide continuous bases along patch interfaces. In the context of shell modelling,...

Finite element analysis and multibody dynamics are popular mathematical modeling techniques for sev- eral mechanical applications. The finite element method is a costly method from a runtime standpoint. Moreover, both multibody dynamics and finite element methods require approximating the geometry of the application either by meshing or by...

Constructing an analysis-suitable parameterization for the computational domain from its boundary representation plays a crucial role in the isogeometric design-through-analysis pipeline. PDE-based elliptic grid generation is an effective method for generating high-quality parameterizations with rapid convergence properties for the planar...

In this paper we use the Isogeometric Analysis (IgA) to solve the Helmholtz equation with Dirichlet boundary condition over a bounded physical 2D domain. Starting from the variational formulation of the problem, we show how to apply IgA to obtain an approximated solution based on biquadratic B-spline functions. We focus the attention on...

Isogeometric Analysis generalizes classical finite element analysis and intends to integrate it with the field of Computer-Aided Design. A central problem in achieving this objective is the reconstruction of analysis-suitable models from Computer-Aided Design models, which is in general a non-trivial and time-consuming task. In this article,...

The numerical simulation of additive manufacturing techniques promises the acceleration of costly experimental procedures to identify suitable process parameters. We recently proposed Floating Isogeometric Analysis (FLIGA), a new computational solid mechanics approach, which is mesh distortion-free in one characteristic spatial direction....

To accurately analyze the fracture behavior of piezoceramics at small length scales, flexoelectricity must be considered along with piezoelectricity. Due to its dependence on size, flexoelectricity predominates at the micro- and nano-length scales. Additionally, crack tips having the largest strain gradient state cause large flexoelectricity...

This paper presents an immersed, isogeometric finite element framework to predict the response of multi-material, multi-physics problems with complex geometries using locally refined discretizations. To circumvent the need to generate conformal meshes, this work uses an extended finite element method (XFEM) to discretize the governing...

We present an isogeometric method for Kirchhoff–Love shell analysis of shell structures with geometries composed of multiple patches and which possibly possess extraordinary vertices, i.e. vertices with a valency different to four. The proposed isogeometric shell discretisation is based on the one hand on the approximation of the mid-surface...

The bottleneck in designing iterative solvers for the Helmholtz equation lies in balancing the trade-off between accuracy and scalability. Both the accuracy of the numerical solution and the number of iterations to reach convergence deteriorate in higher dimensions and increase with the wavenumber. To address these issues in this dissertation,...

An isogeometric finite element method for incompressible fluid film equations is presented. The method can be applied to numerically model the behaviour of thin cellular membranes, such as lipid bilayers. The membranes are represented by infinitely thin closed surfaces. Both the surface parametrization and analysis are based on state-of-the-art...

Isogeometric Analysis (IgA) is an extension of the more well known Finite Element Method (FEM). It allows for more accurate descriptions of boundary value problems on irregular domains. However, many of the traditional iterative solution strategies that are known to work well in FEM do not show the same behavior in IgA, especially for increasing...

The use of sequential time integration schemes becomes more and more the bottleneck within large-scale computations due to a stagnation of processor’s clock speeds. In this study, we combine the parallel-in-time Multigrid Reduction in Time method with a p-multigrid method to obtain a scalable solver specifically designed for Isogeometric...

Isogeometric Analysis (IgA) can be seen as the natural extension of the Finite Element Method (FEM) to high-order B-spline basis functions. Combined with a time inte- gration scheme within the method of lines, IgA has become a viable alternative to FEM for time-dependent problems. However, as processors' clock speeds are no longer increasing but...
