Abstract

In this paper we propose a Finite Element model for analyzing closed membranes (“bags”) interacting with internal and external (surrounding) fluids. The approach is based [...]

Abstract

An embedded Eulerian-Lagrangian formulation for the simulation of droplet dynamics within a polymer electrolyte fuel cell (PEFC) channel is presented. Air is modeled using an Eulerian formulation, whereas water is described with a Lagrangian framework. Using this framework, the [...]

Abstract

For years there has been a need to develop multifunctional composite materials, which in addition to the classical properties such as high strength and high stiffness, integrate different functionalities such as the ability to detect any deformation [...]
