A comparative study on finite elements for capturing strong discontinuities: E-FEM vs X-FEM
(Elsevier Science Sa, 2006-12)
A comparative study on finite elements for capturing strong discontinuities by means of elemental (E-FEM) or nodal enrichments (XFEM) is presented. Based on the same constitutive model (continuum damage) and linear elements ...
Integrating open source codes for solid modeling and automatic mesh generation in FEM applications
The applications of the Finite Element Method (FEM) for three-dimensional domains are already well documented in the framework of Computational Electromagnetics. However, despite the power and reliability of this technique ...
NUMERICAL SIMULATION of THE BEHAVIOR of THE BEHAVIOR of REINFORCED CONCRETE BEAMS and COLUMNS BY FEM CAASTEM 2000 PROGRAM
(Univ Politecnica Catalunya, 2009-01-01)
The objective of this paper is the numerical study of the behavior of reinforced concrete beams and columns by non-linear numerical simulations. The numerical analysis is based on the finite element method implemented in ...
A generalized finite element method with global-local enrichment functions for confined plasticity problems
(SPRINGERNEW YORK, 2012)
The main feature of partition of unity methods such as the generalized or extended finite element method is their ability of utilizing a priori knowledge about the solution of a problem in the form of enrichment functions. ...
A simple way to introduce fibers into FEM models
(JOHN WILEY & SONS LTD, 2008)
This communication proposes a simple way to introduce fibers into finite element modelling. This is a promising formulation to deal with fiber-reinforced composites by the finite element method (FEM), as it allows the ...
