Abstract

The effect of waterproof membrane and steel reinforcement protection on the concrete bridge deck is modeled. The attention is paid to the durability prediction related to steel reinforcement corrosion initiation based on the chloride penetration. Thus 2-D finite element chloride [...]

Abstract

Detailed geometric models of a mandible can improve the accuracy of computer simulations. However, cost, time and qualified labor available for their construction may hinder or delay the task. The purpose of this article is to describe a technique for reconstructing a mandible [...]

Abstract

A finite element formulation for solving multidimensional phase‐change problems is presented. The formulation considers the temperature as the unique state variable, it is conservative [...]

Abstract

In this paper the general non symmetric parametric form of the incremental secant stiffness matrix for non linear analysis of solids using the finite [...]

In this paper a plastic damage model for nonlinear [...]

Abstract

The usefulness of using the speckle photography technique in fracture mechanics to check numerical calculations is demonstrated for an internally pressurized cylinder [...]

Abstract

A stabilized semi-implicit fractional step algorithm based on the finite element method for solving ship wave problems using unstructured meshes is presented. The stabilized governing equations for the viscous incompressible fluid and the free surface are derived at a differential [...]

Abstract

A three-dimensional (3D) thermomechanical coupled model for Laser Solid Forming (LSF) of Ti-6Al-4V alloy [...]

Abstract

The numerical simulation of complex failure modes of composite materials, such as delamination, can be computationally very demanding, as it requires special elements and/or numerical strategies to characterize damage [...]

Abstract

Ship design process usually relies on statistics and comparisons with existing ships, rather than analytical approaches and optimization techniques. Designers found this way as the best to fulfil the owner’s requirements, but better solutions, for both the shipyard and the owner [...]
