Abstract

The aim of this work is to carry out numerical simulations in the time domain of seakeeping problems taking into account internal flow in tanks, including sloshing. To this aim, a Smooth Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH) solver for simulating internal flows in tanks is coupled in the [...]

Abstract

A review is given of advancing front techniques for filling space with arbitrary separated objects. Over the last decade, these techniques have reached a considerable degree of maturity [...]

Abstract

An advancing front space‐filling technique for arbitrary objects has been developed. The input required consists of the specification of the desired mean point distance in space and an [...]

Abstract

This paper proposes a methodology for the continuous blending of the finite element method and smooth particle hydrodynamics. The coupled approximation [...]

Abstract

The paper reports the development and application of a SPH (smoothed particle hydrodynamics) based simulation of rapid filling of pipelines, for which the rigid-column model is commonly used. In this paper the water-hammer equations with a moving boundary are used to model the pipe [...]

Abstract

Bird impacts can be extremely critical events for the air transport safety. Since aircraft structures have become more and more complex components, the numerical prediction of the damage onset and evolution induced by a bird impact has become a very challenging task. The aim of this [...]

Abstract

A modular computational framework for the identification of friction parameters in metal machining applications is presented. Numerical simulation of such processes using mesh-based techniques (usually) necessitates the re-meshing procedure, which is time-consuming and hard to [...]

Abstract

The study of tumoral cells behaviour through computational models is arising. The movement of these cells is governed by physical laws; therefore, the different forces exerted between them need to be implemented. Nevertheless, biological criteria should be also considered since [...]

Abstract

This work is part of the ProTechTion project funded by MSCA - EU Horizon 2020, and consists of an Incremental Updated Lagrangian Smooth Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH) framework, aimed at applications in the field of fast solid dynamics, with the following highlights: - Mixed-based [...]

Abstract

Debris flows are characterized as mixtures of solid particles and pore fluids, in which coupling between phases plays a paramount role in the dynamic behaviour. Due to the strong coupling between phases, pore pressures can be generated if the fluidized mass contains solid particles [...]
