(2010-05-14)Three-dimensional (3-D) crack growth analysis is crucial for the assessment of structures such as aircrafts, rockets, engines and pressure vessels, which are subjected to extreme loading conditions. The analysis of 3-D ...
Improved conditioning and accuracy of a two-scale generalized finite element method for fracture mechanics (2014-05-30)Many problems of engineering relevance in computational mechanics involve analysis of structural behavior spanning different spatial scales. Examples of such industrial problems include fracture in engine components, ...
(2010-05-14)In this research, heat transfer problems exhibiting sharp thermal gradients are analyzed using the generalized finite element method. Convergence studies show that low order (linear and quadratic) elements require ...
(2015-10-05)There are a wide range of computational modeling challenges associated with structures subjected to sharp, local heating effects. Problems of this nature are prevalent in diverse engineering applications such as structural ...
