Abstract

Metal cutting or machining is a process in which a thin layer or metal, the chip, is
removed by a wedge-shaped tool from a large body. Metal cutting processes are
present in big industries (automotive, aerospace, home appliance, etc.) that
manufacture big products, [...]

Abstract

Living biological tissues are complex structures that have the capacity of evolving
in response to external loads and environmental stimuli. The adequate modelling
of soft biological tissue behaviour is a key issue in successfully reproducing
biomechanical problems [...]

Abstract

This work is about the development of a general algorithm for the numerical solution of flow equations: the Navier-Stokes set. This set of differential equations models the time dependent behavior of fluids. It is formed by continuity, linear momentum and an energy transport equations. [...]

Abstract

In this paper some results of a wide experimental program are presented and compared with some finite element solution of sheet metal forming problems using a viscous shell formulation.[...]

Abstract

Generally, the effects of suction in fine sands can be evidenced by a stiffening of the material, as the capillary front advances in the granular skeleton. In geotechnical retention structures this effect can [...]
