Isogeometric Analysis of Multi-patch Geometry

Isogeometric analysis (IGA) aims at bridging the gap between Computer Aided Design (CAD) and Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) by utilizing Non-uniform rational B-splines (NURBS), which is used for geometric description, as the basis for approximating the solution in CAE environment. However, IGA is not always straightforward, like in case of complex geometries which are generally […]

Multiscale modeling of textile composite: A Requisite

Composite materials have been rapidly developed and adopted since World War II accompanied by the emergence of new matrix materials and high-performance fibers. Modern aircraft and space structures comprise 50 to 70 percent of this unique blend of composite materials due to their ultra-low weight and high toughness. Robust predictions of the thermo-mechanical response of […]
