Abstract

Introduction

In patients with moderate symptomatic or severe asymptomatic carotid stenosis, prior to an endarterectomy it is recommended to do a detailed study, in which the complet set of morphological and hemodynamic parameters are included.

In this work the [...]

Abstract

The energy use in buildings has to be decreased to reach the targets and regulations in the European Union. One way of reducing the energy demand is to use vacuum insulation panels (VIP) in the building envelope. To make sure the declared thermal properties of the VIP are valid for [...]

Abstract

This paper analyzes the ability of the Lattice Boltzmann method (LBM) with multiple relaxation times (MRT) in the simulation of flow in practical engineering problems. The case study covered refers to the first section of the initiation channel, which is part of the piracema channel, [...]

Abstract

A finite element model has been developed for the 3D simulation of the sintering of a single track during a selective laser sintering process (SLS). The model takes into account both the [...]

Abstract

Residual stresses and distortions are two technical obstacles for popularizing the additive manufacturing (AM) technology. The evolution of the stresses in AM components during the thermal [...]

Abstract

The present work aims at advancing an innovative computational methodology
that simulates steel and composite material fracture under cyclic loading following
a phenomenological approach, with calibration [...]

Abstract

We propose here a numerical model for a three-dimensional simulation of glass forming processes. Using the basic philosophy of the Particle Finite Element method (PFEM), we introduce several new features adapting the strategy to suit the problem of interest. A modified fractional [...]

Abstract

This work includes the numerical simulation of different locations within one meter thick walls experimentally investigated by Mangold (1994). Mangold simulated the hardening process in different walls during the frist seven days with the help of a so called "cracking frame". [...]

Abstract

In this work we present a numerical model for the estimation of atmospheric seeing in observation sites. The particularity of the method is that it is based on a Variational Multiscale [...]
