The case of the flow around a rotating circular cylinder is very complex. This thesis investigates the properties of a fluid flow for Reynolds numbers ranging from 50 to 400. Numerical simulations are performed using a combination of isogeometric analysis and the residual-based variational multiscale method, providing high accuracy. The results...

With increasing attention to climate change,renewable energy generation has become a major topic for research anddevelopment. Wind and solar energy are generated on land, whereas wave, windand tidal energy generators are getting attention in the offshore domain. Anovel extension of onshore solar energy is the concept of...

In numerical methods, correct geometry description and mesh refinement are a challenge. By using a more geometrically based Finite Element Analysis (FEA) type method called ‘Isogeometric Analysis’ (IGA), exact geometry description can be attained, even on coarse meshes. Furthermore, mesh refinement is relatively easy, since no communication with...

Double degree. Supervision of the thesis also at: Faculty Applied Mathematics, Department Numerical Analysis, Programme M.Sc. Applied Mathematics. Structure-preserving discretization techniques preserve fundamental structure of operators and operands found in partial differential equations. Classical discretization techniques sometimes neglect...

Topology optimization is an automated design approach for structural applications that is gaining popularity in industry, including the aerospace sector. Resulting designs can be made suitable for traditional manufacturing techniques, although it is a technique that is particularly useful for non-conventional approaches such as additive...

Fracture mechanics based computational methods are becoming increasingly important to study the structural integrity and failure of materials and structures used in engineering applications. One challenging aspect for computational methods is the analysis of crack nucleation and propagation in complex geometries or in materials with...

Jaeschke, A.M. (author)
Computer-aided design (CAD) and finite element analysis (FEA) tools are extensively used in industrial design processes. The idea of isogeometric analysis (IGA) is to bring those worlds closer together. Combining them significantly increases the efficiency of the design and development processes. The general idea of the IGA approach is to use...

Membrane structures have a rich history of use across many disciplines and are widely used in aerospace and structural engineering applications. A few examples can be found in solar sails, atmospheric balloons and parachutes. These membranes have many advantages, including their ability to take complex shapes and their low mass to surface ratio,...
