Abstract

A numerical study of unidimensional and steady state bimodal flux diffusion equation has been developed using the Finite Volume Method. In addition, with the Ficks flux, this equation has another flux named retention or secondary flux. The influence of each flux has been analysed [...]

Abstract

A general Finite Volume Method (FVM) for the analysis of structural problems is presented. It is shown that the FVM can be considered to be a particular case of finite elements with a non‐Galerkin [...]

Abstract

In this paper a comparison between the finite element and the finite volume methods is presented in the context of elliptic, convective–diffusion and fluid flow problems. The paper [...]

Abstract

A general methodology for deriving thin plate bending elements with a single degree of freedom per node is presented. The formulation is based on the combination of a standard [...]

Abstract

This work proposes a novel finite volume paradigm, the face-centred finite volume (FCFV) method. Contrary to the popular vertex (VCFV) and cell (CCFV) [...]

Abstract

The paper presents a new computational framework for the numerical simulation of fast large strain solid dynamics, with particular emphasis on the [...]

Abstract

A second-order face-centred finite volume method (FCFV) is proposed. Contrary to the more popular cell-centred and vertex-centred finite volume (FV) [...]
