Abstract

We propose here an efficient approach for treating the interaction between membranes and fluids. Slight compressibility of the fluid is assumed. Classical total Lagrangian formulation including [...]

Abstract

This paper shows applications of a recently developed shell element to the analysis of thin shell and membrane structures. The element is a three node triangle with only translational DOFs (rotation free) that uses the configuration of the three adjacent elements to evaluate the [...]

Abstract

Local stress fields are routinely computed from molecular dynamics trajectories to understand the structure and mechanical properties of lipid bilayers. [...]

Abstract

In modeling and numerically implementing a follower pressure in a geometrically nonlinear setting, one needs to compute the volume enclosed by a surface [...]
