Mathematical modeling and numerical solution is today firmly established in science and engineering. Research conducted in almost all branches of scientific investigations and the design of systems in practically all disciplines of engineering can not be pursued effectively without, frequently, intensive analysis based on numerical computations. The world we live in has been classified by the human mind, for descriptive and analysis purposes, to consist of fluids and solids, continua and molecules; and the analyses of fluids and solids at the continuum and molecular scales have traditionally been pursued separately. Fundamentally, however, there are only molecules and particles for any material that interact on the microscopic and macroscopic scales. Therefore, to unify the analysis of physical systems and to reach a deeper understanding of the behavior of nature in scientific investigations, and of the behavior of designs in engineering endeavors, a new level of analysis is necessary. This new level of mathematical modeling and numerical solution does not merely involve the analysis of a single medium but must encompass the solution of multi-physics problems involving fluids, solids, and their interactions, involving multi-scale phenomena from the molecular to the macroscopic scales, and must include uncertainties in the given data and the solution results. Nature does not distinguish between fluids and solids and does not ever exactly repeat itself. This new level of analysis must also include, in engineering, the effective optimization of systems, and the modeling and analysis of complete life spans of engineering products, from design to fabrication, to possibly multiple repairs, to end of service. The objective of the M.I.T. Conferences ^ on Computational Fluid and Solid Mechanics is to bring together researchers and practitioners of mathematical modeling and numerical solution in order to focus on the current state of analysis of fluids, soUds, and multi-physics phenomena and

to lead towards the new level of mathematical modeling and numerical solution that we envisage. However, there is also a most valuable related objective indeed a "mission" - for the M.I.T. Conferences. When contemplating the future and carving a vision thereof, two needs stand clearly out. The first is the need to foster young researchers in computational mechanics, because they will revitaUze the field with new ideas and increased energy. The second need is to bring Industry and Academia together for a greater synthesis of efforts in research and developments. This mission expressed in 'To bring together Industry and Academia and To nurture the next generation in computational mechanics'' is of great importance in order to reach, already in the near future, the new level of mathematical modeling and numerical solution, and in order to provide an exciting research environment for the next generation in computational mechanics. We are very grateful for the support of the sponsors of the Conference, for providing the financial and intellectual support to attract speakers and bring together Industry and Academia. In the spirit of helping young researchers, fellowships have been awarded to about one hundred young researchers for travel, lodging and Conference expenses, and in addition. Conference fees have been waived for all students. The papers presented at the Conference and published in this book represent, in various areas, the state-of-the-art in the field. The papers have been largely attracted by the session organizers. We are very grateful for their efforts. Finally, we would like to thank Jean-Frangois Hiller, a student at M.I.T, for his help with the Conference, and also Elsevier Science, in particular James Milne, for the efforts and help provided to publish this book in excellent format and in due time for the Conference.

^ A series of Conferences is planned.

If direct factorization is used to solve (2). 4n. . like many of the comb-drive based structures fabricated using micromachining.10]. Alum et al.!.3]. Discretization of the above integral equation leads to a dense system of equations which becomes prohibitively expensive to form and solve for complicated problems. In addition. and fast matrix-vector . it is necessary to determine the drag force on the comb. Several researchers simultaneously observed the powerful combination of integral equation approaches. rather than by solving the compressible Navier-Stokes equation. ^ is the w-length vector of known collocation point potentials. consider Fig. fluid compression can be ignored for devices which use lateral actuation.000. Krylovsubspace matrix solution algorithms.5]. In Fig. the discretization of a comb is shown. The many different physical domains involved in micromachined devices has focussed attention on fast techniques which are Green's function independent. 1 shows. one can exploit the fact that Krylov-subspace methods for solving systems of equations only require matrix-vector products and not an explicit representation of the matrix. and then the multipole expansion can be used to evaluate distant potentials. That the fluid can be treated as Stokes flow. Note the surprisingly high contribution to the force from the structure sides. Higher-order elements and improved efficiency for higher accuracy have been the recent developments [8. and therefore convection can often be ignored. An accelerated Stoke's flow solver completed the simulation in under 20 min. Instead.13]. consider the electrostatics problem of determining the surface charge given the potential on conductors. note that for P in (2). but the interaction between the cluster of panels and distant panels can be approximated. every entry in P is nonzero. consider determining the quality factor of a comb-drive resonator packaged in air. To see how to perform such a reduction in cost. The result of these two simpUfications is that fluid damping forces on laterally actuated microdevices can be accurately analyzed by solving the incompressible Stokes equation.1.9]. where q is the n-length vector of panel charges. A simple discretization for the electrostatics problem is to divide the polysilicon surfaces into n flat panels over which the charge density is assumed constant. but the memory requirement will not decrease. For example. The simulated traction force in the motion direction is shown in Fig. A cluster of collocation points separated from a cluster of panels. Since the integral in (3) is nonzero for every panel-collocation-point pair. then it is possible to reduce the solve time to order n^. In particular.c is a point on the surface. 2. X^ ' ^' (3> where xt is the iih collocation point. Perhaps the first practical use of such methods combined the fast multipole algorithms for charged particle computations with the above simple discretization scheme to compute 3-D capacitance and electrostatic forces [6]. Since the Green's function for electrostatics is the reciprocal of the separation distance between x and x\ '••' = f panel. and that the quantity of interest is the surface traction force. products [4. 2. The discretized system is then Pq = ^ (2) Short-range stiiiimed direct!J Fig. or collocation. To see this. To compute the quality factor. as Fig. makes it possible to use a surface integral formulation to compute comb drag [11]. If instead. it is essential not to form the matrix explicitly. 1. /First MIT Conference on Computational Fluid and Solid Mechanics where u is either the electrostatic potential or the fluid velocity. computing Pq is equivalent to computing n potentials due to n charged panels and this can be accomplished approximately in nearly order n operations [2. The short-range interaction between close-by panels must be computed directly. a preconditioned Krylov-subspace method like GMRES [1] is used to solve (2). The small spatial scale of micromachined combs implies that flow in these devices typically have very low Reynolds numbers. In order to develop algorithms that use memory and time that grows more slowly with problem size. Then. Notice that only the surface is discretized. Example fluid simulation As an example of using a fast solver. It should be noted that the quality factor computed from the numerical drag force analysis matched measure quahty factor for this structure to better than 10% [14]. and d/dn is the derivative in the direction normal to the polysilicon surface. the distant interaction can be computed by summing the clustered panel charges into a single multipole expansion (denoted by M in the figure). 3. A system of equations for the panel charges is then derived by insisting that the correct potential be generated at a set of n test. 1. points. direct methods would have taken weeks and required over 16 gigabytes of memory. the methods described above can be used to rapidly solve a discretization of the integral equation [12. then the memory required to store the dense matrix will grow like n^ and the matrix solve time will increase like n^.N.

An important advantage of matrix-free multilevel-Newton methods is that it is not necessary to modify either the mechanical or electrostatic analysis programs.

Applying (5) implies solving the nonlinear equation. /First MIT Conference on Computational Fluid and Solid Mechanics view this mechanical analysis as a 'black box' which takes an input. The rigid/elastic mechanical solver greatly reduces the size of the stiffness matrix with the bulk shrinking to a dense 6 x 6 block (see Fig. a vector of discretized surface charges. many finite-element degrees of freedom can be eliminated and replaced with a rigid body with only 6 degrees of freedom i/rigid = {^. 4. geometric displacements.

The important aspect of GMRES is that an explicit representation of the matrix is not required. because forming the right-hand side in (8) involves using an inner Newton's method to apply HM.N. The surface of the rigid body still has to be discretized finely to properly resolve the electrostatic forces.17]. In order to solve (8). tion.

There is a hint of 3D structure in the way that the flow comes down through the tricuspid valve in the foreground but swirls around the vortex core into the background behind that inflow jet.

Its two stable states are: (1) a steady state in which the filament points straight downstream. Air resistance flattens the velocity profile of the flowing soap film. It is our hope that this model will prove useful as a computer test chamber for the design of prosthetic cardiac valves. Although the Reynolds number of the computation (Re = 210) is lower than that of the laboratory experiment by two orders of magnitude. The open tricuspid valve is visible at the atrioventricular junction. Note the tension in the closed mitral valve and the jet of blood entering the ascending aorta through the open aortic valve. 2.

An estimate of the shear resistance of the particulate medium is of great importance to facilitate better process control. This could be attributed to the weak fabric anisotropy of the system develops for an increase in size of large inclusion. Antony*. For example. We also present the microscopic evolution of contact orientations in terms of fabric anisotropy tensor. It has been shown that. Fabric anisotropy.

The interactions between contiguous particles are modelled as a dynamic process and the time evolution of the particles is advanced using an explicit finite difference scheme. Vital information on the influence of inclusion on the macroscopic shear resistance and internal contact orientations of the granular assembly are obtained during shearing. The simulations are performed in a periodic cell in which a large size particle (submerged particle) is created at the centre of the cell and surrounded by monodispersed spherical particles (generated randomly). The random assembly created were isotropically compressed to a stress level of 100 kPa.S. the readers could refer to Cundall and Strack [1]. the solid fraction and mechanical coordination number (average number of load bearing contacts) of the samples considered in this study were 0.a2 -\.83 ± 0. the granular system tends to develop maximum shear resistance at an early stage of shearing.10 deviator strain 0.J. the shear strength of the system depends on the ability of the system to build strongly anisotropic fabric network of contacts carrying greater than average (strong) normal force. the microstmcture of the samples was isotropic.20 Fig. 2 shows the variation of macroscopic shear resistance of the granular systems during shearing (deviator strain = Si —S3). 5 and 10.

To demonstrate the algorithm's ability to easily handle large deformations and the corresponding variation in the contact area. An addition to the algorithm was made to check for violation of the stability criterion and rescale the contact impulse as necessary. The algorithm is computationally efficient. Note that the rubber case has larger total energy in part because it free falls for a fraction of a cell length before contacting the plane. where D is the sphere's initial diameter. Because of the rich behavior granular material has been found to exhibit. calculate frictional forces and surface normals. and inspection reveals the trade off between kinetic and strain energy as the sphere slumps down the plane.

For this case. there is variation in interface velocity over the contact area resulting in some sliding during rolling.5 1. 2. One of the test problems investigated was that of a sphere on an inclined plane under gravity. For the rigid case.S. 1) are shown in Fig. the total energy is the sum of the sphere's kinetic and strain energies. initially at rest. which can be reduced by decreasing the explicit time step. extensive testing revealed a shortcoming. and a solution is achieved with one sweep through the computational mesh. The majority of the energy is kinetic for the rubber case.0 Fig. 2. For the deformable cases. A separate contact detection step is unnecessary. deformability plays a small role and a reasonable resolution of the geometry results in a total energy very similar to the rigid case. The first case is shown in gray and corresponds to both sphere and plane having stiffnesses approximately that of natural rubber. For the (elastic) deformable cases the computational cell size is Z)/8.0 1. plus greatly increased robustness.8-s intervals (indicated with dotted vertical lines in Fig. However.

Stress propagates more slowly in areas rich in smaller grains. Conclusions MPM is found to provide a convenient environment for the implementation of frictional contact. It propagates more slowly through the smaller grains because grains must be brought into contact. and a meandering path must be traversed to reach a given depth. The inhomogeneous stress state resulting from the development of force chains may play a role in energy localization by promoting frictional sliding.e. Work to incorporate fracture in these simulations is ongoing. Bardenhagen et al /First MIT Conference on Computational Fluid and Solid Mechanics Fig. 4. It has been found that a prevalent load carrying mechanism in granular material is provided by a small subset of the grains forming highly loaded connected paths of contacting grains. The longer term objective is to include an interstitial material and simulate initiation mechanisms in PBXs and . Initial configuration consisting of 1000 spheres in a 1-mm cube. [7]. Preliminary results on granular compaction are encouraging. Dry granular material provides a relatively simple starting point and data for validation. Sewell et al. The sample size is too small to determine the effects on the stress wave structure of the interplay between large and small grains.12 JJLS after impact. The size distribution is representative of that for the energetic grains in the PBX ultimately of interest within C-SAFE. 4 Fig. (with the stress rescaled to emphasize stress paths) indicates the development of force chains among the smaller grains. The grains are modeled using a compressible Neo-Hookean plasticity formulation [6] with elastic material properties determined by molecular dynamics simulations. The simulation of the dynamic compaction of dense granular material further requires accurate modeling of grain deformation. Stress propagates most quickly through the large grains. with simulations indicating preferential load paths developing during dynamic compaction. there is a large database available for validation. Two large grains are prominent in approximately opposite comers. Much larger simulations will be performed to provide a better representation of the measured grain size distribution. Ultimately of interest is a fundamental understanding the load carrying mechanisms and connections with continuum constitutive models via state statistics at the microscale. as do chains of small grains on either side. 4. but requires accurate modeling of many contacting grains. The stress wave structure from a preliminary calculation with 10^ cells and 6 x 10^ material points is shown in Fig. plastic deformation and/or fracture. A tool to generate dense packings of spheres with given size distribution using Monte-Carlo techniques was developed and used to create the initial configuration depicted in Fig.56 S.

Abstract In this work, we present a numerical method for solving the diffraction of transient elastic waves by cracks of arbitrary shapes in complex media, with Signorini's boundary conditions on the crack. We use a fictitious domain method based on a mixed displacement-stress formulation for elastodynamics. We propose an off-centered time discretisation scheme for enforcing the stability. Keywords: Elastodynamics; Unilateral contact; Fictitious domain method; Non-destructive testing; Crack

1. Introduction In this paper, we are interested in solving the diffraction of transient elastic waves by cracks of arbitrary shapes in complex media, with Signorini's boundary conditions on the crack. This is the continuation of a previous work [1] done on the linear problem, that is when the boundary condition on the crack is a free surface boundary condition. To get an efficient method, we want to use regular meshes and at the same time respect the geometry of the crack. This is possible thanks to the fictitious domain method, which takes into account the boundary condition via a Lagrange multiplier defined on the crack, which can be interpreted as the jump of the displacement through the crack. This allows to work with a uniform mesh in the whole domain and an independent mesh on the crack. In order to consider the unilateral contact boundary condition as a constraint, we are led to use the mixed displacement-stress formulation for elastodynamics. We will present a fictitious domain formulation of this problem in which the boundary conditions are taken into account by a variational inequality for the Lagrange multiplier. For the space discretisation of this problem, we propose to use the mixed finite element using spaces of symmetric tensors for the stress [1]. This choice was shown to allow the obtention of an explicit time discretization scheme (mass-lumping) in the linear case. In the non-linear case, we cannot use a centered difference scheme for the time discretisation which would lead to an

unconditionally unstable scheme. That is why we propose an off-centered scheme that we show to be stable. This scheme is explicit in the volume unknowns (displacement and stress), but impHcit in the Lagrange multiplier: one has to solve an optimisation problem with bound constraints at each time step.

Time-frequency pneumatic transmission line analysis

Department of Mechanics, Politecnico di Torino, Corso Duca degli Abruzzi 24, 10129 Torino, Italy

Abstract This paper presents a theoretical and experimental method for analyzing pneumatic transmission lines in both the time and frequency domains. The test bench developed for this purpose is described together with the experimental analysis method. The theoretical analysis models implemented in the Matlab-Simulink environment are then briefly illustrated. The paper concludes with a comparison of some of the theoretical and experimental results obtained in the investigation. Keywords: Pneumatic transmission line; Pneumatic transient; Pneumatic servosystem; Impedance method; Characteristics method; Fluid borne noise

1. Introduction Transmission line dynamic behavior affects the dynamic performance and noise of pneumatic servosystems. A line having a length of 1 m, for example, introduces a delay of several ms [1]. In addition, the flow and pressure pulses generated by the compressor propagate towards the user through the lines, generating noise [2]. The dynamic performance of transmission lines must thus be considered in designing a pneumatic servosystem. Experimental studies in this field, though indispensable, are time-consuming and must be backed up by a preliminary theoretical analysis. In particular, they call for easily used computer codes capable of predicting the dynamic behavior of a line in both the time and frequency domains on the basis of the line's geometry and mechanical properties and of the properties of the air. In addition, the models' parameters must be readily identifiable. This paper describes a theoretical and experimental method for dynamic analysis of pneumatic lines. A test bench developed for this purpose is illustrated. The use of the characteristics method and the impedance method in theoretical analyses of pneumatic lines is then discussed. Finally, a number of theoretical and experimental results are presented, compared and discussed.

(TP2) (Kistler 701a, FS 2.5 bar, linearity 0.5% FS, rise-time 6 |xs) for measuring pressure pulses are installed upstream and downstream of the line under test (TL) by means of appropriate adapters. The line includes a resistive load (ZL). In the present configuration, the hne is excited by switching valve (V) which connects it in alternation to two reservoirs which are maintained at different constant pressures by means of reducers (Rl) and (R2). Valve switchover is controlled by the signal generator (SG). Pressure signals from transducers (TPl) and (TP2) are acquired over time at a frequency of 10 kHz, after which the line's frequency response function (FRF) is calculated in terms of the modulus of the ratio of upstream to downstream pressure, expressed in dB.

3. Time domain analysis Line modehng in the time domain was carried out using the characteristics method [4] implemented in the MatlabSimulink environment. The equations of motion, assuming one-dimensional viscous motion with propagation of small isoentropic oscillations, have the following solutions for the internal points of the grid (Fig. 2): Pi(t + ^t) _ 1 Pi^iit) + P,+i(0 + Ze • (G/_i(0 - Qi+i(t)) ~ 2 2 AD
Zc • (Qi-i(t)\Qi-dt)\ Qi+i(t)\Qi+i(t)\)

The investigation was carried out for a line with known upstream pressure. The downstream boundary conditions were calculated by combining the characteristics equations with the equation for flow through a nozzle, expressed by means of conductance C and critical ratio b as per ISO 6358 [5]. The characteristics method makes it possible to investigate line behavior in the time domain for different input pressure laws after identifying the following parameters: line geometry and characteristics (length, inside radius, friction coefficient), air characteristics (mean pressure, mean temperature, dynamic viscosity, specific heat ratio) and exhaust nozzle conductance and critical pressure ratio. The results of time simulation carried out on a line excited with a pressure step can then be post-processed to determine the FRF of the line under test. 4. Frequency domain analysis Line modeling in the frequency domain was carried out using the impedance method [6,7] implemented in the Matlab-Simulink environment. Upstream pressure and flow rate (Pi and Q\) and downstream pressure and flow rate (P2 and G2) are linked by a four pole equation:

where Zc is the characteristic impedance of the line, and F is the propagation operator of the line. On the basis of the assumptions made, the expressions for both Zc and F can be calculated in relation to frequency. Once load impedance Zi is known:

the line's FRF can be calculated:

Simulating the line's dynamic behavior in the frequency domain calls for defining the following parameters: line geometry (length, inside radius, thickness), mechanical properties of the Hne (complex Young's modulus), air characteristics (mean pressure, dynamic viscosity, mean density, specific heat ratio) and load impedance.


G. Belforte et al. /First MIT Conference on Computational Fluid and Solid Mechanics culated by post-processing the time simulation performed with the characteristics method. As can be seen, the resonance peaks on both the experimental curve and that produced with the impedance method become smaller as frequency increases. This phenomenon was not modeled with the simplified characteristics method adopted for the investigation.

5. Results A number of graphs of line dynamic behavior are presented by way of example. The graphs refer to a poly amide line with length of 1 m, inside diameter of 4 mm and thickness of 1 mm connected downstream to a 0.5 mm diameter nozzle. Fig. 3 shows downstream pressure as measured experimentally and as calculated using the characteristics method with the line excited by an upstream pressure step. The values for the downstream nozzle's conductance C and critical pressure ratio h measured as per ISO 6358 are 3.5 x 10~'^ m^/(sPa) ANR and 0.4, respectively. The line's friction coefficient was considered to be independent of frequency and equal to 0.06. Despite the extensive simplifications introduced in modeling, there is a good degree of agreement between the experimental and calculated curves. The experimental step response curve shown in Fig. 3 was used to evaluate the line's FRF. In Fig. 4, this curve is compared with the curve calculated using the impedance method {ZL = 1/C = 2.8 x 10^ Pa-s/m^^) and with that cal-

6. Conclusions The theoretical and experimental method presented herein provides a simple means of analyzing line dynamic behavior in both the time domain and the frequency domain. Only the following parameters need be known in order to identify a line's dynamic behavior: the length, inside diameter, thickness, complex Young's modulus and friction coefficient of the line; the mean pressure, mean temperature, dynamic viscosity and specific heat ratio of the gas; and the conductance and critical pressure ratio or impedance of the exhaust nozzle. In particular, the load conductance and critical pressure ratio can be measured in accordance with ISO 6358, while load impedance as a function of excitation frequency can be measured on the same bench or estimated in subsequent simulations.

On some relevant technical aspects of tire modelling in general

Abstract The study of pneumatic tire mechanics is divided into external tire mechanics that deals w^ith the effect of tires on the vehicle dynamics and internal tire mechanics that focus on the computation of stress-strain and heat states in tires. Internal tire mechanics employs models founded on physical understanding, but not on empirically obtained curves. The objective of this paper is to use the results of internal tire mechanics for improving the external tire models in vehicle model systems. These tire models are applied to rolling contact also on deformable ground. Keywords: Tire models; Rolling contact; Tire mechanics; Terramechanics

1. Comparison of different tire models Deriving from the paper [1] presented on the 2nd International Colloquium Tyre Models for Vehicle Dynamic Analysis different tire models (Timoshenko type ring-beam, layered shell model, space continuum, multi-masspoint model) and their transitions one to another are investigated. The main focus was directed to composite shell models and to the application of the Bohm multi-masspoint approach on the rolling tire [2-4]. In order to treat the dynamic contact problems the pneumatic tire is described geometrically non-linear as a multi-layered anisotropic torus shell with low transfer shear stiffness. The membrane and bending deformations were assumed small and the cross-section will exhibit moderate rotation angles. The possibilities of describing the tire composite by different layer models are discussed. For practical tire calculations, which take into account the significant transfer shear deformation, the Timoshenko type shell model and 3- or 5-layer sandwich models with weak rubber layers are adequate. In order to reflect energy losses the visco-elastic behavior of rubber-cord-composite is taken into account. The investigations are based on results of Bohm [5], Duda and Wille [6], INTAS-RFBR [7], Kulikov et al. [8], and Belkin et al. [9].

2. Stationary and transient rolling of tires The stationary rolling problem, quasi-static with friction, is investigated in a coordinate axis rotating simultaneously with the tire. The real dynamic behavior of the rolling tire is non-conservative and self-excited. Appropriate damping of cords and rubber is to be taken into account in order to stabilize the dynamic system. The static equilibrium and the equations of motion of a membrane/shell model are treated. This model is modified for the real structure of an agricultural tire with ribs. Data of 3D models are fitted from given design parameters. The parameters used for 2D masspoint models are extracted from measurements of tire section for variable inner pressure loads and from the eigenvalues of the tire. The non-linear and hysteretic system of Newton equations of this method is solved by explicit predictorcorrector integration with respect to time. The numerical integration procedure needs short time steps. The highest eigenvalue of masspoint model and the shortest relaxation time of the rheological models for tire material and for soil needs to be in correlation with Shannon criterion in order to achieve numerical stable solutions. New theoretical and numerical results and comparison with FEM-results, e.g. [10], will be discussed.

F. Bohm et al /First MIT Conference on Computational Fluid and Solid Mechanics 3. Rolling contact on deformable ground Tire models described above can be used for vehicle dynamics analysis. It can adequately be used for computing the tire-ground interaction in accordance to the technical demand for tire durability, road cover resistance and soil protection in agriculture and forestry. A new mechanical multi-point measurement technique for displacements in the inner of a rolling tire was developed [11]. For high frequency tire deformation and quick driving manoeuvres an acoustic measurement system is in development. The slip between tire ribs and ground cannot be assumed as constant because of the elasto-dynamical tire motions. At present only the 2D masspoint model has an acceptable amount of computational time on PC and is suitable for application in vehicle dynamics. The soil under the tire is described by different rheological laws of the ground surface behavior in the normal and tangential direction [12]. The soil models are tested for simple rigid and elastic tire models in rolling contact. Frohlich/Sohne approach is used for describing the soil compaction. The apphcability of this method is tested by a finite element computation on the basis of a critical state soil model. References


4. Conclusion Analytical and numerical analysis of different level tire models is an important pre-condition for suitable choosing of practical calculation schemes for tires and for better understanding of the rolling tire behavior. Investigations are aimed at applications in vehicle dynamics and in tire design. The Bohm multi-masspoint model was used for determining the rolling contact forces on a rigid and deformable ground. The later simulation is meant to avoid the negative effects of soil compaction in agriculture and road damage by truck tires.

Abstract We present a general methodology for non-holonomically constrained mechanical systems where the governing equations are reformulated employing differentiated multipliers and modified momenta. This procedure allows the algebraic and differential parts of the problem to be completely uncoupled, so that the two subproblems can be solved separately. Any suitable ordinary differential equation integration algorithm can be applied to solve the differential part, by-passing the need for a specialized differential-algebraic equation solver. The approach may be interpreted as a consistent index reduction from 2 to 1 that simplifies the numerical solution of the problem.

1. Introduction A considerable effort within the scientific community has been devoted in the past years towards the development of efficient and reliable numerical methods for the simulation of constrained dynamical systems. These systems are usually cast in terms of sets of differential-algebraic equations (DAEs). Solving general DAE systems still represents an open field of research, since their intrinsic numerical difficulty has prevented to date from reaching the same degree of maturity achieved in the numerical treatment of ordinary differential equation (ODE) systems. This difficulty is usually measured by the differential index of the DAE problem, a concept discussed in [7,9,10]. While index 1 DAEs may be dealt with by using a variety of available numerical methods, for DAEs of index greater than 1 obtaining a good numerical solution may still prove to be a difficult task. In the present work, we are concerned with systems governed by index-2 DAEs, or systems subjected to nonholonomic constraints. It must be pointed out that these systems cannot, in general, be directly solved by applying a standard off-the-shelf ODE integrator, because of its inability to exactly solve algebraic equations. Here we seek a complete uncoupling of the DAE system into separate * Corresponding author. Tel: +39 (2) 2399-8399; Fax: +39 (2) 2399-8334; E-mail: borri@aero.polimi.it © 2001 Elsevier Science Ltd.

algebraic and differential parts. To this end, we introduce differentiated Lagrange multipliers and define a new variable, the 'modified momentum'. While the 'standard' momentum must obey the non-holonomic constraints imposed on the system, the modified momentum must not, and in this sense it represents a completely free (unconstrained) variable. This way, we obtain an ODE for this quantity that can be integrated using any suitable ODE solver. The original momentum is then recovered by means of an 'embedded projection' onto the constraint space. In general, this procedure allows the same order of accuracy to be attained for all the fields of a DAE problem (and, in particular, for the algebraic variables) that is provided by the chosen solver when applied to a purely ODE problem. This framework was presented originally for both holonomic and non-holonomic problems in [3,4] and its successful application to the parallel computation of the dynamics of general topology rigid multibody systems was reported in [11]. Apart from minor developments, the main novel contributions of this work are to be found in the interpretation of the procedure as a consistent index reduction and in the recovery of the reaction forces by a second 'embedded projection' onto the space defined by the constraint derivative. This process, which recovers even the multiplier derivatives with the same order of accuracy of the primary variables, indeed completes the whole picture, in close analogy to the methodology recently presented in [5,6]

2. Lagrangian framework Let a generic dynamical system with n degrees of freedom, be characterized by a Lagrangian function £(q, q, 0 , where q G R" represents the vector of Lagrangian coordinates describing the system configuration, and let the system be subjected to m < n linearly independent nonholonomic constraints through a constraint function j/r, ^(q,q,O = 0^ (1)

We note that the classical Lagrange multipliers k are related to our multipliers fi by /i = X. Furthermore, note that, with the substitution X = ft, the first equation of set (6) is exactly equivalent to Eq. (3), while the second simply expresses Eq. (1), being £* = 0^ and C^ = -f. Remarkably, in the case of integrable constraints f =^, i.e. those velocity constraints which correspond to the total time derivative of position constraints 0(q, 0» we get Q* = Q, since (d^q/d/ — ^q) vanishes identically. Therefore, the additional force Qnh := Q* - Q is peculiar to proper non-holonomic constraints. The gyroscopic nature of this quantity was analyzed in [4], where it was shown that it may be cast in the following form Qn/.(q, q, /^, 0 = B(q, iij)q + b(q, ti, t), (7)

We require that this function be linear in the Lagrangian velocities q, or f (q, q, t) = A(q, t)^q + a(q, t). (2)

where B is a skew-symmetric matrix linearly depending on fi, while b := (aq — dA/dt) fi. From the preceding we infer that the power Wnh •= q • Qnh of this additional force on the Lagrangian velocities reads Wnh = q-h, Vq. (8)

where the constraint matrix A := f^ e W''"' has full-row rank. In passing, we remark that, under suitable smoothness assumptions, f vanishes together with all its time derivatives. This obvious feature is not inherited by the numerical solution obtained via conventional methods, which, due to time discretization, satisfies only the velocity-level constraint (1). In the following, we show how a more consistent numerical solution can be obtained, exactly satisfying both Eq. (1) and its first time derivative, i.e. the acceleration-level constraint. It is well known that the governing equations for this system are given by the following augmented Lagrange equations - £ q - £ q = Q + A)., (3)

This power clearly vanishes identically whenever b = 0^. In particular, when A is time-independent and a does not depend on the coordinates q.

3. Hamiltonian framework As shown, the introduction of new multipliers ft (the reaction impulses) instead of the classical X (the reaction forces) leads to an important theoretical result: the extension of Hamilton's variational principle to non-holonomic mechanical systems through the definition of a modified Lagrangian £* and a modified force Q*. In the following, we show that this procedure inspires analogous extensions in the Hamiltonian framework, where a modified Hamiltonian 1-L* can be defined accordingly. In this case, however, the interest of the proposed methodology is not limited to theoretical issues, but also possesses algorithmic implications on the numerical solution that shall become clear in the following. We switch to the Hamiltonian formulation by means of a standard Legendre transformation, defining the momentum p := £q, inverting this relation to find q as a function of p, or q = VH(P, q, 0 . and obtaining the Hamiltonian function H(p, q, t) as n = p-yH-jCH, (9)

together with Eq. (1). Clearly, X G E'" represent the vector of Lagrange multipliers, while Q G M" denotes the vector of Lagrangian external forces conjugated to q. The term AX accounts for the reaction forces associated to the constraints (1). It has been shown in [4] that equations equivalent to the set formed by Eqs. (1) and (3) may be derived from a variational statement by defining a modified Lagrangian function C*(q, q, fi,t) and a modified Lagrangian external force Q* as (4) (5) where fi e W^ is a. new multiplier vector. The EulerLagrange equations of the system are found as A/2* — /2* — O* (6)

where >Cif(p, q, 0 •= >^(v//(p, q, 0 , q. 0- ^^^ following 'mixed form' canonical equations P + ' H q ^ Q + AX, (10)

govern the system together with Eq. (1). However, a critical


M. Borri et al. /First MIT Conference on Computational Fluid and Solid Mechanics 4. Consistent index reduction The differential system (17), explicitly cast in terms of (q, p*), may be directly integrated by means of any suitable ODE solver from consistent initial data q\tQ and p\f^ — p*|^Q. As an example, take a generic one-step integrator, such as a 5-stage Runge-Kutta method: the procedure calls for solving the problem composed of Eqs. (13) and (11) at each of the s internal stages. This, when a general quadratic form in q is assumed for the original Lagrangian £, turns out to be a linear problem for (p, fi). When (p//, fif^) are known, one solves the equations corresponding to the discretized ODEs (16) or (17) at that internal stage and moves on to the next. This shows the profound difference existing between this methodology and a conventional projection method, where the projection is performed only at the end of the time step. Such an approach, referred to as the (i-method or the modified phase space method, has been presented in [3,4]. Experience has shown that this formulation positively impacts the accuracy and stability of the numerical solution [11]. In fact, comparison with the widely adopted Baumgarte stabilization technique [2] has shown much lower constraint violations (for holonomic constraints imposed at velocity level) and a considerable robustness. However, we presently do not favor the treatment of holonomically constrained mechanical systems by imposing velocity-level constraints, since the 'drift' phenomenon cannot be completely eliminated. We presently recommend the approach presented in [5,6] for holonomic problems, and the present one for proper non-holonomic problems. It may be proved that the method oudined here is strictly equivalent to a process of reduction of the differential index of the problem. In fact, the original DAE problem corresponding to Eqs. (10) and (11) has index 2, while in the proposed framework the DAE problem given by Eqs. (16) or (17), (13), and (11) has index 1. It is worth noting that, in index 1 problems, the algebraic equation may always be interpreted as a definition of the algebraic variables rather than as a constraint acting on the state variables.

point in this process lies in the fact that the momentum p is intrinsically constrained by the algebraic equation ^//=0,,, where f ^(p, q, t) := ^(v//(p, q, r), q, r), or ^ ^ ( p , q, 0 = A(q, 0 V ( P , q, 0 + a(q, 0(12) (11)

At this point, we introduce the modified momentum p* := £*. Since £* = £q - fl ft, we get p* = p - A / i . (13)

Now, coupling this equation with the algebraic constraint (11) we can solve for p and fi as functions of (p*, q, r), obtaining P =P//*(p*,q,0, (14)

This enables us to get q = V//*(p*, q, t) and, performing a Legendre transformation on £*, to obtain a modified Hamiltonian 1-L*(p*, q, t) as ^ * = P* • v//* CH*


where £//*(p*,q, r) := £(v//*(p*, q, r), q, r). Now, the canonical equations governing the system can be found as P*+H; = Q*, q-n;.=On. (16)

Note that, in contrast to the Lagrangian framework, in the Hamiltonian case, there is no appended constraint equation to the system (16), since the modified momentum p* adopted as the independent variable together with the vector of Lagrangian coordinates q, is an unconstrained quantity under all respects: it yields, by construction, a solution for the original momentum p which exactly satisfies the constraint equation (11). Therefore, the set of canonical equations (16) may be directly integrated in terms of (qp*) It is worth looking at an alternative form assumed by the governing ODEs (16), in view of its numerical implementation. In fact, the canonical equations are formally equivalent to the following set (17)

5. Preservation of accuracy In the approach followed in [3,4,11], recovering of the reaction forces (essentially, (i) was performed by numerical differentiation, thus loosing the chance of retaining the same order of accuracy for these quantities as that obtained for the primary variables (q, p*) and, consequently, for (P, l^) The following developments are carried out for the explicit purpose of overcoming such a limitation in accuracy and are closely related to the ideas presented in [5,6] in the context of holonomically constrained systems, with the

provided that Eqs. (14) are understood in the dependencies of the terms (Tiq, Tip, Q, A, JJL) on (q, p*). However, these equations are much simpler than Eqs. (16) to implement and evaluate in the context of numerical integration since all the quantities involved are easily retrieved, the only additional burden being the knowledge of A when compared to a conventional integration method.


procedure termed the Embedded Projection Method. We consider the original equiUbrium equation (10a) and the time derivative of Eq. (11), both viewed as linear algebraic equations in the variables (p, //.): p + 'Hq^Q + A ^ , (18) By using eqs. (14), we can evaluate each term in the previous equations as a function of (p*, q, t) and solve for p and /t, giving P = ^i/*(p*,q,0, (19)

vides the reaction forces. The outcome of the method is a substantially enhanced accuracy, in particular with respect to reactions, plus an intrinsical gain in robustness due to the exact preservation of both the constraint and its time derivative. The methodology is closely related to the Embedded Projection Method recently presented in the context of holonomically constrained systems. Preliminary applications, not detailed in this work, have been implemented and tested, confirming the properties predicted in the analysis.

In summary, these quantities are recovered by using the equilibrium equation and the acceleration-level constraint as an algebraic problem, just as (p, JLC) are obtained by using the modified momentum definition and the velocity-level constraint. This process has been termed the 'embedded projection'. It is clear that, within the context of exact mathematics, JT//* = Pif* and XH* = /i,^*. However, when dealing with time discretization processes, the present procedure allows to compute {KH*,XH*) independently from (Pi/*»/^H*)- This improves the consistency of the solution, and also allows the same accuracy for the algebraic variables (p, p, /t, (i) to be retained as for the independent variables (q, p*). In other words, the outcome of the methodology may be described as the retrieval of both the augmented state (p, q, /t) and its time derivative (p, q, /t) fully satisfying the constraints in the original and differentiated forms.

6. Concluding remarks In this work, we presented a general methodology for the consistent index reduction of the equations governing the dynamics of mechanical systems subjected to non-holonomic constraints. We showed how the governing equations may be split into uncoupled algebraic and differential parts. This process, which involves the definition of a modified, unconstrained momentum, leads to the formulation of an ODE which can be solved by any suitable standard numerical integrator, by-passing the need for specialized DAE solvers. The solution of a first algebraic subproblem allows to recover the original momentum, while a second one pro-

Abstract The aim of the present work is to develop an apphcation of the LArge Time INcrement (LATIN) approach [6] to the calculation of response surfaces used for parametric analysis. The scheme followed was previously introduced to solve multiple-solution problems [2,3]. Here, applications concern elastic buckling and viscoelastic structures. Keywords: Non-incremental method; Multiple solutions; Response surface methodology; Parametric uncertainty

1. Introduction The solutions to deterministic problems are often calculated by finite element analysis (FEA). Incorporating system parametric uncertainties into the problem represents a challenge for structural engineers; yet, without this information, the structural response could not be analyzed accurately. These system parametric uncertainties include mechanical properties of the material (modulus and strength, etc.), geometric properties (cross-sectional properties and dimensions), boundary conditions, magnitude and distribution of loads, etc. Assessing the stability or the calculation of the limit states of structures taking these parametric uncertainties into consideration is much more difficult than the general parametric field problem because highly nonlinear structural behavior must be considered. To obtain such responses of structures, the perturbation method [1,7] is one of the important approaches. In recent years, many researchers have focused on the stochastic finite element method, in which the system parametric uncertainties mentioned above can be included. The response surface methodology (RSM) was developed initially by Veneziano et al. [9]. The RSM is already a widely accepted procedure in structural reliability analysis [5]. Schueller et al. [8] used the RSM to model the actual limit state function of large structures subject to static *Tel.: +33 (1) 4740-2186; Fax: +33 (1) 4740-2185; E-mail: boucard@lmt.ens-cachen.fr © 2001 Published by Elsevier Science Ltd.

and dynamic loading. The calculation of response surfaces and, further, of the response of the structure along the whole loading path involves multiple solutions. Each set of data considered necessitates a separate, full-scale calculation. Consequently, a significant number of problems of the same type must be solved. The goal of the work presented here is to develop a strategy well-suited to multiple-solution problems. Thus, the choice of an appropriate and efficient computational method is of vital importance. The LATIN method [6] is non-incremental in nature and, consequently, would appear to be a promising approach, considering that its inherent principles tend to be more applicable than most conventional incremental algorithms. The strategy proposed is based on the LATIN method and, more specifically, on its capacity to reuse the solution to a given problem in order to solve similar problems [2,3]. It allows total computing costs to be minimized with respect to the determination of response surfaces.

2. Review of the LATIN method The principles of this method can be found in [6]. The method uses quantities (displacement, strain, stress and internal variables) defined over the space-time domain Q. X [0, r ] , where [0, T] is the time interval studied and Q is the domain occupied by the structure (assuming small displacements). It takes advantage of the remarkable properties of the equations. The procedure is iterative and

creates at each iteration an approximation of the displacement, strain, stress and internal variables over the spacetime domain Q x [0, T]. Each iteration consists of two stages. For simplicity's sake, one can say that in the first stage the constitutive relations are integrated; therefore, this is a local stage with respect to the space variable. In the second stage, a global, linear problem on ^ x [0, T] is solved. The direct solution of the global linear problems with time as a parameter required at the global linear stage can

lead to considerable computing times. Mechanics-based approximations of unknowns are introduced as a means of reducing these computing times. The separation of the functional dependencies both in time and in space yields satisfactory results for quasi-static loadings. Corrections are then sought by superimposing solutions of the radial loading type. Such solutions are recognized as good approximations of non-linear, quasi-static problem solutions.

The first example considers a straight beam built-in at one end and subject to a prescribed displacement at the other. 2 shows the number of space functions added at the initial basis level during the calculations (six groups of time-space functions). the idea here is to initialize the process associated with the similar problem (the 'perturbed' structure) using the results of the calculation carried out on the 'initial' structure. The idea is. the solution to the latter problem can still be derived at a significantly lower cost than using full-scale calculation. The influence of a particular perturbation on the value of the critical buckling load (Fc/Fco ratio) is examined. It can be observed that no more than one space function is added in the majority of . The structural perturbation introduced consists of variations of the Young's modulus in different elements (15 in all) ranging from —50% to +50%. the preliminary stage plays a vital role: it enables one both to verify that the basis of the space functions is well-suited to the target problem and to search for new time functions leading to the solution of the 'perturbed' problem. therefore. the LATIN method builds an optimal basis for representing the solution. This number provides an indicator of the total computing cost. 4.5 0 0.

In the last few years the work on the inverse problem done by Gladwell [13] started to be taken seriously by engineers and researchers interested in this field of engineering. Tel. Further research on structural modification was carried out by Tsuei and Yee [5-7] who presented a method of shifting the desired eigenfrequencies using the forced response of the system. The modification can either be global or local. In addition to the modification of the existing structural elements the formulation can also be used to add new structural elements to achieve the desired natural frequencies. E-mail: emsrmsd@brunel.

More recently Kim [8] investigated the use of mass matrix modification to achieve desired natural frequencies.146 Relocation of natural frequencies using physical parameter modifications M.ac. Chen and Garba [4] used the iterative method to modify structural systems. they obtained stiffness and mass matrices using the orthogonality principles. Cross-sectional area 1. The calculations involved do not include any iteration or convergence and therefore it is computationally efficient. the resulting stiffness or mass matrix may not be physically implemented. Structural modifications. The common industrial practise for optimising the design is to subject the proposed structure to a series of structural modifications based on the engineer's experience.

Keywords: Inverse problem. The formulation allows the determination of the necessary modifications on the structural members to achieve the specified frequency. which is usually slightly different from a structure previously analysed. more research effort was conducted towards developing new concept with sufficient information to find the exact modified parameters. It is a common design requirement to ensure that all the natural frequencies are far away from the frequency caused by the exciting forces. In this paper an efficient formulation between the geometric and material properties of structures and their eigenvalues is established. However.

The results show a significant improvement in accuracy compared to traditional piecewise element-based surface interpolation. The predicted contact stresses are also less sensitive to the mismatch in the meshes of the different contacting bodies. 1. 1). ON. All rights reserved.

This interpolation is applicable to both rigid and flexible bodies and it can be easily implemented in finite element codes. In this case.utoronto. 1 shows a parametric cubic spline segment connecting two FE nodes. which simplifies the representation of the contact constraints. Consequently.

5. these vectors are generally not available in standard FE meshes. Interpolation functions can be constructed to satisfy a prescribed tangential vector. 2 was applied to the symmetry surface of the ring. The spUne curve can be expressed directly in terms of the coordinates of the two nodal points defining the segment and their two adjacent surface nodes: — ^w' -\. The contact stresses were normahzed by the bending stiffness of the beam. the spline curve can be considered as a linear blend of two parabolas q"~^ and q"'. It involves a ring compressed between two beams. an accurate iterative contact check is performed in the second stage of the search. In this work. The overhead associated with this process does not offset the advantages of second order continuity.N. If the master node is inside the search region. Overhauser splines offer an alternative approach that ensures C^-continuity without requiring prescribed tangential or normal vectors [4]. The solution to the saddle-point problem can be expressed in matrix form as: K C^ C 0 (3) where the C matrix is the assembled constraint matrix. even when N — 60. while the intermediate points dictate the smoothness of the curve. A higher number of elements results in more uniform contact stress profiles. the contact search is divided into two stages. 2(a)): L = Vd. Numerical example One numerical example was selected to assess the accuracy of the newly developed smooth surface interpolation technique. Solution strategy The contact can generally be expressed in the form of a variational inequaUty [5]. 2(b)). They can be obtained by solving a predominantly tri-diagonal matrix expressing the continuity equations [3]. By employing C^-continuity. the active contact constraints are imposed using Lagrange multipliers. the exact target point and gap/penetration are determined. The following dimensions were selected (Fig. Fig. simple and fast interpolation functions can be constructed where the intermediate control points can be obtained without resorting to matrix solution. the matrix must be solved again for the new location of the intermediate points. In this case. interference is checked between the master node and the control polygon of the spline segment. S.u^ — \u x«(„) = [p«- pf lu^ . these oscillations lead to ^ intermediate regions of non-contact between the beam and the ring. Lagrange multipliers satisfy the contact constraints exactly without any interpenetration between the contacting bodies. In this stage. while a variable mesh of A^ x 5 elements was / used for the ring. More details on the solution algorithm are provided in Ref. The results reveal that using splines (A^ = 20 and 'N = 40) leads to a uniform contact stress distribution. h = t — \ and /? = 8. the location of the intermediate control points is governed by a few nodes adjacent to the segment. The purpose of the first stage is to obtain a quick estimate of the proximity of a master node to a specific spline segment. however. According to the convex hull property. An incremental vertical displacement da = 0 .A. However. the spline curve cannot exceed the geometric bounds of the control polygon [3]. For each segment a. To overcome this. El-Abbasi.8. [6]. For A = 20. The element interpolation results in unrealistic numerical stress oscillations. In view of the symmetry condition. only one quarter of the model was discretized (Fig. The beam was modeled using 40 x 5 four-noded elements as shown in Fig. UnUke penalty-based methods. the location of the intermediate control points for all the spline segments are coupled. 3.

Crack initiation models Generally. currently in engineering practice the influence of damage on stresses and strains is not considered. The modeling uncertainty associated with mean stress correction is extremely large even for simple uniaxial lab tests. Such an approach includes both changes in strength and constitutive model using damage parameter as an internal variable in the material constitutive model. modified Morrow and Smith-Watson-Topper (SWT) correction procedures. This modeling uncertainty should be reduced in the future through the development of more accurate physics-based strain-damage models based on stochastic micro-mechanics. etc. the equivalent (Von Mises) stress is used to define the alternating stress component and the hydrostatic stress (in fact the first stress invariant) to define the mean stress component [3]. s).

This last remark is due to the fact that the creep damage effects are drastic during the crack initiation stage reducing severely the statistical spread between the short and long LCF simulated lives. appropriate stochastic adjustments of damage curves have to be used in addition to the randomization of the model parameters. These stress-dependent damage models or nonlinear damage rule-based models capture adequately the complex HCF/LCF/creep damage interactions. 5 indicates the effect of creep damage (at 700°C) on Ufe prediction. Fig. It is interesting to note two modeling aspects: (i) the probability density of predicted life has a skewed shape for pure LCF damage and relatively symmetric shape for LCF/creep damage and (ii) the coefficient of variation is smaller for the LCF/creep damage.

It can be observed that the largest damaging flight sequence is a clear outlier for lognormal and Weibull probability density function.

where V B and U i are the vectors of nodal displacement for boundary and interior nodes, respectively. In terms of boundary nodes, we can write

The corresponding generalized fundamental eigenproblem can also be formulated strictly in terms of boundary nodes and written as

on the boundary. Both traction-oriented finite element and boundary element methods are investigated. A FEM mesh with 1345 nodes and 432 quadrilateral elements has been used. The number of nodes on the boundary is 96, thus forming 48 quadratic boundary elements. The eigenvalues for some eigenmodes are listed in Table 1. The modes with exact eigenvalues are completely shear deformations. Closed-form expressions were obtained in [4]. It is seen that for lower modes, FEM has reasonably good eigenvalues similar to those of BEM. For higher modes, the eigenvalues in FEM become less accurate. However, increasing the number of internal nodes in FEM improves the eigenvalues and eigenmodes toward those obtained via BEM. This clearly shows why BEM can often solve problems more accurately for a given boundary discretization. In practice for FEM we usually increase internal and external nodes together. In this way with an

5.2. Plate with edge notch We now apply the new boundary element and finite element methods for plane strain loading of a plate with an edge V-notch. Here we consider the geometry and boundary conditions shown in Fig. 2. Let h = 5, w = 5, a = 1 and to = I, while 2a = 270° where a is the included half-angle at the notch. Material properties are E = 1 and v = 0.3. For stress analysis at the notch tip we can use a multi-region method, but here we use half-symmetry and model only the upper portion of the plate. From the asymptotic expansion of Williams [7] we know the singularity of stresses for free-free edges is r^~^ where y = 0.544484. Then the weight function cp = r^~^ is used on the cut line. On the rest of the boundary, we take (p = 1. In all cases, (pij = (p8ij. In the numerical analysis, a mesh with 200 boundary nodes and 100 quadratic boundary elements is used. Meanwhile, the finite element domain model consists of 600 eight-noded quadratic elements. Fig. 3 provides the numerical solutions for the weighted traction t'^ versus horizontal distance from the tip of the notch. Solutions away from the tip are converged. However, Gibbs' phenomenon is clearly visible in the vicinity of the notch. The boundary element solutions show much lower amplitude oscillation. This can be attributed to the improved resolution of the higher fundamental eigenmodes obtained with the BE formulation. Discontinuity induces

6. Conclusion The theory of fundamental eigensolutions gives a new view to the theory of elastostatic boundary value problems and their numerical solution. The numerical formulations based upon boundary element and finite element methodologies that have been developed here remain valid even for non-smooth problems associated with notches, cracks and mixed boundary conditions. Most mathematical models of practical engineering problems are non-smooth. For example, mixed boundary conditions may be specified, reentrant comers may be present or bi-material interfaces may exist. In non-smooth problems, using the proper weight function (p to make ^ ^ piecewise regular has several advantages. * Most importantly, calculations are then based on bounded functions. However, t"^ may be discontinuous. This results in oscillations associated with Gibbs' phenomenon. Additionally, the Fourier coefficients decrease faster for higher modes. This means that the participation of higher modes are less important than for the case with cp = I. Consequently we may expect higher quality solutions for a given mesh when cp is chosen properly.

Abstract A finite element-based reliability evaluation procedure is proposed to evaluate the risk of linear and nonUnear structures subjected to static and short-duration time-varying loading including seismic loading. It is parallel to the deterministic finite element method, except that it can incorporate information on the uncertainty in the variables present in the problem. It is capable of capturing any special features that can be handled by the finite element method, making it a robust reliability evaluation technique.

1. Introduction The analytical procedures to calculate the nonlinear deterministic response of structures to both static and dynamic loading have matured significantly in recent years. It is not difficult now to track the load path to failure considering complicated geometric arrangements, realistic connection and support conditions, and various sources of nonlinearity. Since it is not possible to avoid the uncertainty in the load and resistance related variables, the focus has shifted to incorporating uncertainty into deterministic computational algorithms. Finite element analysis is a very powerful tool commonly used by many engineering disciplines to analyze simple or complicated structures. The word 'structure' is used in a broad sense to include all systems that can be discretized using finite elements. With this approach, it is easy and straightforward to consider complicated geometric arrangements and constitutive relationships of the material, realistic connection or support conditions, various sources of nonlinearity, and the load path to failure. It gives good results for a set of assumed values of the variables while ignoring the uncertainty in them. On the other hand, many of the available reliability methods are able to account for

the uncertainties, but fail to represent the structural behavior as realistically as possible, and can be computationally challenging when the performance function is not available in an explicit form [1]. If the basic variables are uncertain, every quantity computed during the deterministic analysis is also uncertain, being a function of the basic variables. The currently available reliability methods can still be used if the uncertainty in the response can be tracked in terms of the variation of the basic variables at every step of the deterministic analysis. The finite element method (FEM) provides such an opportunity, and this concept forms the basis of the stochastic finite element method [2]. With the advances in computer technology, it is quite appropriate to develop a finite element-based reliability analysis technique, parallel to the deterministic analysis procedure. Most engineers will have a tool to estimate the risk or reliability of simple or complicated systems considering all major sources of uncertainty and nonlinearity as realistically as possible. The authors have developed a finite element-based algorithm to estimate the reliability or probability of failure of structures, capturing the nonlinear behavior just before failure. The authors call it the stochastic finite element method (SFEM) or probabilistic finite element method (PFEM) [2]. It will be of interest to researchers working to advance the deterministic finite element concept. It will also be of interest to the general risk and reliability research community, since it is a powerful and robust reliability method

2. Concept In general, nonlinear complicated structural systems are expected to have implicit performance functions when subjected to static and dynamic loadings. Several computational approaches could be pursued for the reliability analysis of structures with implicit performance functions. They can be broadly divided into three categories, based on their essential philosophy [2], as: (1) Monte Carlo Simulation; (2) response surface approach; and (3) sensitivity-based approach. The sensitivity-based approach can be implemented in the context of the first- or second-order reliability method (FORM or SORM) and the finite element method. In the application of FORM or SORM, only the value and gradient of the performance function at each iteration are required in the search for the design or checking point. The value of the performance function can be estimated from deterministic structural analysis. The gradient can be calculated using sensitivity analysis. In the case of explicit performance function, the gradient is calculated simply by analytical or numerical differentiation. For the implicit performance function, several approximate methods can be used to compute the gradient of the performance function, e.g. finite difference, classical perturbation, and iterative perturbation methods. Combining the iterative perturbation and the finite element approaches, an SFEM-based reliability evaluation procedure is discussed next. The concept is applicable to both linear and nonlinear problems.

sponding gradients at each iteration point. It converges to the most probable failure point (or checking point or design point) and calculates the corresponding reliabihty index p. The following iteration scheme is used to find the checking point: G(y,) y;+i = y;«. + |VG(y;)| where AG(y) = 9G(y) dyx 9G(y)


Oli =


AG(y,) |AG(y,)| 9G, {^dG •hx + 1 Q


and \ 9G,D I JD,X + -r~ j;.i (4) ) ^^. In Eq. (4), J^y are the Jacobians of transformation and j / ' s are statistically independent random variables in the standard normal space. The evaluation of the quantities in Eq. (4) will depend on the problem under consideration (linear or nonlinear, two- or three-dimensional, etc.) and the performance functions used. The essential numerical aspect of SEEM is the evaluation of three partial derivatives, namely, 9G/9s, aG/9u and dG/dx, and four Jacobians, namely, J,,;^, J^,^, JD,X, and J3;,;,. These are briefly discussed next. AG = 3.1.1. Performance functions and partial differentials The safety of a structure needs to be evaluated with respect to predetermined performance criteria. The performance criteria are usually expressed in the form of limit state functions, which are functional relationships among all the load effects and resistance-related parameters. Two types of limit state functions are commonly used in the engineering profession: the Hmit state function of strength (axial load, bending moment, combined axial and bending moment, etc.), which defines safety against extreme loads during the intended life of the structure, and the limit state function of serviceabiHty (lateral deflection, interstory drift, etc.), which defines the functional requirements [1]. 3.1.2. Evaluation of Jacobians and the adjoint variable method To evaluate the gradient VG, the evaluation of the three partial derivatives on the right-hand side of Eq. (4) is necessary. They are easy to compute since G(x, u, s) is an exphcit function of x, u and s, as discussed in the previous section. The next task is to evaluate the four Jacobians in Eq. (4). Because of the triangular nature of the transformation, J^^ and its inverse are easy to compute. Since s is not an explicit function of the basic random variables x, J^,;^ = 0. The Jacobians of the transformation Js,D and JD,X, however, are not easy to compute since s.

3. Methodology SFEM-based reliability evaluation procedures for static and dynamic loadings are discussed briefly and separately. 3.1. Static loading The reliability analysis procedure for static loading is based on FORM. The formulation requires an expression for a limit state function G(x, u, s), where vector x denotes the set of basic random variables pertaining to a structure (e.g. loads, material properties and structural geometry), vector u denotes the set of displacements involved in the limit state function, and vector s denotes the set of load effects (except the displacement) involved in the limit state function (e.g. stresses, internal forces). The displacement u can be expressed as u = QD, where D is the global displacement vector and Q is a transformation matrix. In general, x, u and s are related in an algorithmic sense, for example, a finite element code. The algorithm evaluates the performance function deterministically, with the corre-


A. Haldar et al. /First MIT Conference on Computational Fluid and Solid Mechanics the performance function and FORM is used to calculate the corresponding reliability index, the coordinates of the most probable failure point, and the sensitivity indexes for the random variables involved in the problem. It cannot be presented here due to lack of space, but will be discussed in detail during the presentation with the help of examples.

D and x are implicit functions of each other. The adjoint variable method [3] is used here to compute the product of the second term in Eq. (4) directly, instead of evaluating its constituent parts. It is accurate and computationally efficient when a large number of basic random variables are involved in a problem. An adjoint vector X can be introduced such that du ds The adjoint vector X depends on the limit state function being considered. It is not possible to derive all these equations due to lack of space; however, it will be discussed in detail during the presentation. The reliability of linear and nonlinear two- and three-dimensional structures can be evaluated using the concept. Special features like partially restrained connections or support conditions are incorporated in the algorithm in addition to geometric and material nonlinearities. It is expected that any features that can be modeled by the finite element algorithm can also be incorporated in the algorithm. The accuracy of the algorithm is established by comparing the information on risk estimated by the algorithm with the Monte Carlo simulation technique. Several examples on trusses, frames, frames with infilled shear walls, etc., will be given during the presentation to show the application potential of the concept to various types of structures. 3.2. Dynamic loading Section 3.1 discusses the SFEM-based reliability analysis procedure for static, time-invariant loads. Many engineering systems are subjected to both short and long duration time-variant loadings. Short duration loading, particularly seismic loading, is of considerable interest to engineers since it has enormous damage potential. Thus, the SFEM-based algorithm needs to be developed for short duration time-variant loadings. In general, the reliability analysis of nonlinear structures in the time domain is very difficult. Recently, Huh [4] suggested a method. The algorithm intelligently integrates the concept of the response surface method, the finite element method, and FORM. Since the performance function of a nonlinear dynamic structural system is implicit, the response surface method is used to approximately generate

4. Conclusions A finite element-based reliability evaluation procedure is proposed to evaluate the risk of linear and nonlinear structures subjected to static and short duration time-varying loads. It is parallel to the deterministic finite element method except that it can incorporate information on the uncertainty in the variables present in the problem. It is capable of capturing any special features that can be handled by the finite element method. The concept appears to be robust and accurate.

Abstract This paper proposes a numerical model for the description of the mechanical phenomenon of radiation wave field due to dynamic crack-propagation. It is shown that the mechanical effect of crack-propagation can be reduced to a set of equilibrating forces acting at the position of cracking if we use the finite element method. In the paper, the formulations for this approximation are derived in displacement-controlled wave field. Both Mode-I and Mode-II crackings are considered in this study. Keywords: Dynamic cracking; Equivalent nodal force; Cracking mode; Wave propagation

1. Introduction The properties of waves due to dynamic crackings have been widely applied with success to a variety of engineering problems. However, the fundamental mechanisms responsible for the radiating wave phenomena caused by the dynamic cracking are not yet thoroughly understood. In order to make wave information quantitative and to utilize such waves in material research, basic studies to clarify generation mechanisms of radiation waves due to dynamic crack-propagation are required and some more sophisticated analytical methods are expected to be developed to describe the dynamic crack-propagation problem. The aim of this paper is to establish a mathematical model providing a numerical approximation to describe the mechanical phenomenon of dynamic crack-propagation. This model is established based on Betti's reciprocal principle and the discretization technique of the standard finite element method. Instead of modeling the crack directly, the mechanical effects of the radiation waves due to the crack-propagation are formulated by a set of equilibrating nodal forces acting at the positions of cracking based on the rigorous mechanics theory. The methodology of this procedure is midway between the conventional theoretical analyses and numerical models. There are two significant * Corresponding author.

characteristics of the proposed model that are different from the conventional theoretical and numerical analyses on this type of problem. The first one is that, until now, the dynamic crack-propagation is usually modified as the traction releasing process ahead of the crack-tip, and treated in a stress-controlled wave field. In this study, we consider the cracking as a displacement loading process and treat the crack-propagation in a displacement-controlled wave field. The second one is that the cracking domain is formulated through a singularity function and this operation could avoid the treatment of the mathematical discontinuity in the Euclidean space. This procedure leads to the advantage of the independence between the mesh division and crack configuration. It is shown that the cracking problem can be treated in the framework of continuum mechanics and the radiation waves due to crack-propagation may be obtained easily by the proposed method. By carrying out a numerical simulation of a dynamic cracking, the radiation waves by Mode-I (opening) and Mode-II (sliding) crackings are obtained and studied.

we consider the crack as a displacement gap in a continuous medium and describe it through a singular function [2]. By some mathematical operations, and the techniques of the finite element method, it shows that the mechanical effect of the cracking in the material can be evaluated by a set of equivalent nodal forces acting at the position with respect to the cracking domain. One can obtain the wave equation as: MU + KU = P*, in which, U is the nodal displacement vector, M is the mass matrix and K is the stiffness matrix.

The components of the equivalent nodal forces are calculated as shown in Table 1 in which the parameters A = Cs/Cp, Cp and C^ represent the velocities of longitudinal and transverse waves, respectively. One can understand from the results that in Mode-I, the mechanical effect of cracking is equivalent to four couples of tensile force acting at the nodes of the element. In Mode-II, the mechanical effect of cracking is equivalent to four couples of shear force. The result for Mode-II is illustrated in Fig. lb. The properties of those results can be proved to have a generality. 2.2. Numerical example

Large strain, large rotation boundary integral multi-domain formulation using the Trefftz polynomial functions

Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, University ofZilina, Velky diel, 010 26 Zilina, Slovakia

Abstract In this paper, a multi-domain formulation based on reciprocity relations, which is a combination of the finite element method and the boundary element method is presented [2-4]. The total Lagrangian formulation for large displacement and large rotation and Hook material law is used. The formulation is the weighting residual form, which leads to a non-linear equation system. The nonlinear equations system is solved by incremental Newton-Raphson procedure. Keywords: Total Lagrangian formulation; Trefftz function; Large displacements and rotations; Boundary integral multidomain method

1. Introduction In this paper, Trefftz polynomials (T-polynomials) [1] are used for the development of multi-domain (MD) based on the reciprocity relations. Such reciprocity principles are known from the boundary element formulations, however, using the Trefftz polynomials in the reciprocity relations instead of the fundamental solutions yields the non-singular integral equations for the evaluation of corresponding sub-domain (element) relations. A weak form satisfaction of the equilibrium is used for the inter-domain connectivity relations. For linear problems, the element stiffness matrices are defined in the boundary integral equation form. In non-linear problems, the total Lagrangian formulation leads to the evaluation of the boundary integrals over the original (related) domain evaluated only once during the solution and to the volume integrals containing the non-linear terms. Also, Trefftz polynomials can be used in the post-processing phase of the MD computations for small strain problems. By using the Trefftz polynomials as local interpolators, smooth yields of the secondary variables (strains, stresses, etc.) can be found in the whole domain (if it is homogeneous). This approach considerably increases the accuracy of the evaluated yields while maintaining the same rate of convergence as that of the primary yields. * Corresponding author.

Abstract Efficient computation in sheet metal forming or car crash analysis is obtained only by using shell elements instead of fully three-dimensional solid elements. However, many requirements in the investigations, in particular when looking at edges and special situations like large stretching and bending with small radii as strains and stresses in thickness direction and general three-dimensional material laws, cannot be provided by shell elements even if they are based on the well-known degeneration concept. Therefore, in [10] a so-called 'Solid-Shell' formulation, following similar suggestions in [4,12,14], was proposed. For the biquadratic-linear as well as for the trilinear elements different locking effects appear, see also [3]. Different schemes to overcome the locking problems are used and an almost locking-free element formulation can finally be presented. However, as a consequence problems occur in the large deformation regime, such that under some types of loading the trilinear elements [7,17] as well as the biquadratic-linear elements show artificial instabilities, indicated by negative eigenvalues of the tangential stiffness matrix. This topic is discussed in detail. Keywords: Solid-Shell elements; Large deformations; Volumetric locking; Mixed interpolations; Trapezoidal locking; Numerical instabilities

1. Introduction With the 'Solid-Sheir concept [4,10,12,14] a shell element formulation was proposed, to overcome some limits of the well-known degeneration concept. Using nodes at upper and lower surface and using only displacement degrees of freedom allows general three-dimensional material laws to be implemented, thus strains and stresses in thickness direction can be properly computed. As a consequence also applications for large deformation problems become possible without artificial restrictions, see also [3,11]. In addition, the treatment of rotations can be avoided completely and the transition to full 3D-continuum parts is directly possible. The originally developed 'four-node type' elements with bilinear inplane shape functions have been extended to 'nine-node type' elements with biquadratic in-plane shape functions [9] expecting a geometrically better approximation for curved and heavily deformed structures.

sumed natural strain (ANS) method as proposed in Refs. [5,6] is used for the 'four-node type' (8 node) elements to avoid transverse shear locking, and it is also used for the 'nine-node type' (18 node) elements to avoid, firstly, transverse shear locking and, secondly, the additionally appearing membrane locking for elements with higherorder shape functions. The problem of thickness locking is resolved by enhancing the normal strain in thickness direction with a linear extension using the EAS-method [4,14], or alternatively by increasing the order of interpolation for the displacements in thickness direction over the thickness using an additional degree of freedom [8]. Considering nearly incompressible material behavior, like rubber elasticity or metal plasticity, the problem of volumetric locking appears. A rather efficient possibility to overcome this problem is to use a lower order of integration for the volumetric parts of the stress tensor and the tangent moduli tensor, the so-called selective reduced integration (SRI) [11]. The selective reduced integration of volumetric parts indeed presumes that an isochoric-volumetric material behavior is considered. Another locking effect known for elements with linear and quadratic shape functions is the problem of so-called

This effect is only found in structures where the vectors from the lower to the upper nodes at the element edges are not vertical to the mid-layer. A method to resolve this problem is using an assumed strain in-plane interpolation of the normal strain in thickness direction as proposed in [2].


2. Numerical instabilities To investigate the effects of numerical instabilities under certain loading conditions a study with a single 'four-node type' element under a homogeneous compressions/tension state is performed in analogy to [1]. Because large deformations are treated in this example, a material of the Neo Hookean type is used. The geometrical and material data

are shown in Fig. 1. All nodes are fixed in the z-direction, thus a plane strain case is generated. The upper four nodes are linked together in the j-direction and as loading a uniform displacement v is prescribed for these nodes. As a consequence of the loading and the boundary conditions shown in Fig. 1 the number of degrees of freedom for the whole system is reduced to four. Therefore, only four eigenmodes (Fig. 2) are possible for the system, with the fourth eigenmode being the volumetric deformation mode. In this simple example the eigenvalues belonging to the eigenmodes shown in Fig. 2 can be derived analytically as a function depending on the displacement u. The results for these investigations are shown in some diagrams in Fig. 3. There it can be seen that the pure displacement formulation DISP3D remains always stable. The ANS3DL element is the displacement formulation combined with the ANS-method. It is clearly visible that for this element formulation the eigenmodes 1 and 2 become unstable in the case of very large compressive strains. But it must also be noted that this state of about 90% compression is hardly found in a realistic problem. If the inplane strains are enhanced using the E AS-method, as it is done for the EAS3DEAS element, the well known hourglass mode [17] appears at a compression of about 45%. Similar observations have been made for the biquadratic elements. As a conclusion it must be noted that all mixedtype enhancements of the low-order interpolated solid-shell elements lead to artificial element kinematics under homogeneous loading in the large deformation regime. For plane elements proposals to improve the element behavior are given by Wall et al. [16] for rectangular elements, by Reese [13] and by Armero [1] in a very detailed

The factor (p must be adjusted to a value between one and zero depending on the type and the grade of deformation. The value of (p can even be equal to one for structures under a pure homogeneous stress state, where the displacement formulation delivers proper results without any locking effects. The current investigations are directed towards the proper automatic adjustment for non-rectangular element shapes and not fully homogeneous loading avoiding any overstiff behavior.

Abstract The SimBio project will produce a generic simulation environment for advanced clinical practice designed for execution on parallel and distributed computing systems. This paper deals with the specific appHcation of current SimBio software components for the study of a skull mechanics problem relating to maxillo-facial surgery. In addition to a demonstration of physical results, performance characteristics of the bio-mechanical finite element code on parallel platforms is given.

1. Introduction The objective of the SimBio project [1,2] financed by the European Commission's Information Societies Technology (1ST) programme is the improvement of clinical and medical practices by the use of numerical simulation. This goal is achieved by developing a generic simulation environment that enables users to develop application specific tools for many medical areas. The potential impact is demonstrated for specific areas through the SimBio evaluation and validation applications. A key feature in the SimBio project is the possibility to use individual patient data as input to the modelling and simulation process — in contrast to simulation based on 'generic' computational models. In order to meet the computational demands of the SimBio applications, the compute-intensive environment components are implemented on high performance computing (HPC) platforms. This paper presents an initial study for bio-numerical support of maxillo-facial surgery planning. The medical background to this study is discussed in Section 2. Selected software components under development within the SimBio

project are discussed in Section 3. Section 4 of the paper illustrates preliminary results of numerical simulations and covers performance issues. Finally, steps towards a more accurate modelling are discussed.

2. Bio-mechanical simulation supporting facial-surgery planning One of the target applications of the SimBio framework deals with pre-surgical studies in the field of head biomechanics. In particular, this refers to the modelling of the deformations emerging during and/or induced by surgical interventions. Thus, simulation supports the optimisation of operation procedures and the planning of therapeutical strategies. Currently, a study is underway to investigate the mechanical consequences of the forces that occur during the sequence of interventions to remedy inborn deformations of the human face (mainly cleft lip and palate). In order to adjust deformed parts of the midface a metal frame (a so-called halo, see Fig. 1) is tightly fixed to the head using screws. After cutting the midfacial bone along exactly defined lines, this device exerts forces on the bone structure to be relocated. The distraction path length governed by the externally applied forces amounts to a length of 10-30

This feature is in sharp contrast with the classical developments on the subject (e.). which is used to construct a nonclassical shell theory with so-called drilling rotations.10]. the case in point is the use of local Cartesian frames. Overview of recent advancements In this review we have chosen to focus on only the very recent achievements in the formulation and numerical implementation of shell theories capable of handling finite rotations. with several competing possibilities being examined [5.fr © 2001 Elsevier Science Ltd.

In passing we note that certain aspects of the subsequent numerical approximation can be introduced up front in order to simplify the shell theoretical formulation. What has been shown. In the case of intrinsic parameterization with orthogonal tensor the issues in the consistent linearization become rather subtle for we have to deal with the differential manifold in the shell configuration space [11]. we believe. The orthogonal tensor parameterization of finite rotations can in some cases be replaced by so-called rotation vector parameterization. Bathe (Editor) though some of them.

France Abstract In this article we review some recent and current research works attributing to a very significant progress on shell problem theoretical foundation and numerical implementation attained over a period of the last several years. however. the particular issue of the optimal interpolation scheme for shells has not been definitely setded yet.: +33 (0) 147 40 22 34. Keywords: Shell problem. see [2-4]). Several points which. In the opposite case for the rotation parameterization based on the rotation vector. etc. merit especially to be re-emphasized are: (i) Classical shell theory is reformulated [1] so that it becomes capable of handling finite (unrestricted-in-size) three-dimensional rotations. for it can be performed by the directional derivative [5].ens-cachan. leads to the intrinsic rotation parameterization in terms of the proper orthogonal tensor. the consistent linearization simplifies with respect to the former case. second order.251 Recent developments in nonlinear analysis of shell problem and its finite element solution Adnan Ibrahimbegovic * Ecole Normale Superieure de Cachan.

Belytschko et al. the finite rotation version of the classical shell theory (or one-director Cosserat surface) and its modification which can account for the third rotation component [38]. (v) Shell dynamic analysis is a natural setting for many nonlinear problems. One area which is certainly yet unsettled is the research into high performance three-node shell element with finite rotations.. Several works have already dealt with this problem. most notably.. several directions appeared worthy of further explorations. [26]. [29] and Bucalem and Bathe [30]..g. however. Some attempts in that directions are the works of Bergan and Nygard [24] which relies on the co-rotational formulation.252 A. In this case one can no longer justify the assumption of director inextensibility. (iv) The complete mathematical analysis of convergence for different finite element spaces for nonlinear shell problem is not provided yet. but with crucial limitation being that of small elastic strains. Brank et al. and should rather take into account the change in the shell thickness. .g.g. and it is by no means trivial to furnish an extension that accounts for the effects of bending. see [15-17]). although it appears that one should be able to benefit from the successful developments on the pertinent subjects such as in Park and Stanley [28]. The major obstacle to tackling that problem. where both elastic and plastic deformations can be finite. This. which appears to be sufficient to alleviate the pertinent locking phenomena in the standard update procedure.g. When combined with the proper choice of finite element interpolations such a linear shell theory leads to the excellent results in all demanding benchmark problems [12]. is to postpone the thickness update to the subsequent iteration. so that the adaptive mesh refinement can be used in a more meaningful manner. (iii) More work is needed on providing robust finite element interpolations. and references therein). Some follow-up works treating the dynamics for shell theories with finite rotations are given in Simo and Tanrow [35]. which is already rather fine-tuned and performs quite well as shown in this review. Another important goal of the mathematical analysis is to provide the error estimates for the nonlinear shell problem. which manifests itself as an additional locking phenomenon. has been accomplished only for membrane shell theory. [36].. which simplifies the implementation but increases the number of iterations. Ibrahimbegovic /First MIT Conference on Computational Fluid and Solid Mechanics (vi) A very useful by-product is obtained in terms of a consistently derived linear shell theory. [20] simply add the enhanced strains in through-the-thickness direction. (The benefit of the latter is briefly illustrated in this review for the linear shell problem. The higher-order finite element interpolations for finite rotation shell elements have not been much researched. see [25]. Only the simplest linear elastic constitutive model for stress resultants was considered. Buechter et al. see [19]). Some work in that direction is already initiated by Simo and Kenedy [13] and Crisfield and Peng [14] on elasto-plastic stress resultant shell model.19]). which is obtained by the consistent linearization of the governing nonlinear theory at the reference configuration. (i) Generalizing the set of stress resultant constitutive equations to other than linear elastic case.) This area of research appears to be strongly related and could certainly benefit from the search for a proper definition of the nonlinear shell problem by means of the asymptotic analysis of three-dimensional continuum (e. This limitation is removed in a recent work of Ibrahimbegovic [9] which considers the stress resultant constitutive model for finite deformation elasto-plasticity based on the multiplicative decomposition of the deformation gradient. the works of Felippa and co-workers (e. there are still some weak points.

(ii) Other stress resultant model which assumes the large elastic strains has been provided for rubber-like shells (e. One immediate consequence of introducing the through-the-thickness stretch is the occurrence of numerical sensitivity in the limit case of thin shells. Summary of current research What has been extensively researched over last several years and presented in this review is. We note in passing that the enhanced shell kinematics which accounts for the through-the-thickness stretching is especially well suited for analysis of shells made of composite materials (e.

Partial results which are very useful in treating the special cases are given in Brezzi et al. multi-body dynamics and snap-through of shells.. Case in point is the oscillation of the computed shear force values clearly identified for 4-node assumed shear strain interpolations in somewhat more simplified setting of plates [27]. On the other hand.

Computational Fluid and Solid Mechanics K. They are particularly well suited to bridge applications because they are insensitive to temperature over the range -40°F to 120°F [2]. A friction pendulum bearing isolates a structure from an earthquake through pendulum motion and absorbs earthquake energy through friction. During an earthquake the slider moves back and forth on the concave dish. Washington.

Eq. This relationship is equivalent to the bilinear hysteresis loop shown in Fig. Exclusive of its approaches. The model builds upon the work of Mutobe and Cooper [4].

(2) ignores the variation with time of the vertical force acting on the bearing. near active faults. the restoring force acts towards the center of the bearing and the frictional force acts according to Coulomb's law of friction. Washington. These simplifications may not be justified for large bridge structures. the effects of overturning tend to cancel since the lateral force induced in each bearing is proportional to the vertical force acting on it. 3 shows the computed response of a slider on a flat surface with 5% friction subjected to horizontal and vertical earthquake motions representative of a stiff soil site. and interconnected by a horizontal diaphragm. they may be . The dish is modeled with a spherical mesh of contact segments that together constitute a contact surface. The opposing contact surfaces are defined as a contact pair with a coefficient of friction equal to that specified for the bearing. Fig. this cantilever steel truss bridge is 1875 feet long and has a main span of 800 feet. The bearing shown has a radius of 3. The correctness of the modeling was verified by analyzing some special cases. The contact segments may be formed on the surface of shell elements. The simplification of Eq. a typical bearing is shown in Fig. In buildings supported on many bearings. For the Washington State Department of Transportation a study was made of the effectiveness of retrofitting the bridge with friction pendulum bearings. Each of these was modeled using the contact surface model described in this paper. 2 shows a model of a friction pendulum bearing based on contact surfaces with friction. the analysis may be performed with upper and lower bounds [6] N = W(1±0. Both the restoring force and the frictional force are proportional to the instantaneous vertical force acting on the model. or in ADINA. 4. Furthermore the modeling properly reflects the two-dimensional behavior of the bearing. however. 4. the period of vibration of a frictionless slider was found to depend on the radius of curvature of the bearing in the same way that the period of vibration of a pendulum depends on its length. 3.

They started from the Navier-Stokes equations and used a perturbation technique that reduced the governing equations to the Euler equation and the Reynolds equation.

During the experiments a free rolling vehicle tire passes over the glass pit prism that is flooded with a fixed water film. This allows the use of a high CFL number essential for steady or slowly unsteady flows. This loss of contact is attributed to a poor fluid expulsion. Results and discussions 5. . /First MIT Conference on Computational Fluid and Solid Mechanics 3. 1 and 2 where the drag force is inversely proportional to the number of grooves and it follows the expected magnitude V 30: n y T 25: 20: 15: W io: Fig. A Baldwin-Lomax turbulence model was utilized since it produces a similar result to the classical KE within the grooves during initial testing and because it provides a shorter computation time. The utilized CFD code The code used for our simulation is Euranus of Numeca Inc.7. There has been a good ranking correlation between the glass pit tire hydroplaning and wet skid tire testing that have been verified by tire industry [8]. It is a structured finite volume code based on the Jameson scheme. The upstream flow velocity is 10. We compute the velocity field and the drag forces of three elementary tread patterns including a slick tire. This scheme was initially constructed to handle compressible aerodynamics problems and has been later adapted using preconditioning to handle slightly compressible flows with a very small Mach number. This consequently results in a higher tire drag force. The addition of grooves should delay the onset of hydroplaning and thus should reduce the drag force. Therefore a higher drag level leads to an earlier hydroplaning situation.000 cells and the time step is controlled by a Courant number of 1. Elementary tread patterns Our hypothesis is classical where we utilize the drag force as the indicator of the tread pattern quality in evacuating the encountered fluid. 15 and 25 m/s. These areas are normalized and ranked accordingly amongst each other or against a targeted reference tire. and tires with 3 and 5 longitudinal grooves. one upstream inflow. 265 4.

The Reynolds number is about 10^ based on the groove depth (10 mm) which indicates a turbulent flow regime. magnitude v 40 f The experimental measurement is conducted at the MicheHn glass pit. The glass pit is a hydroplaning performance measuring tool that evaluates the reduction of tire contact patch with respect to vehicle speed. 5. The domain is set up as follow: two mirror faces (one is the ground and the second is the base of tire treads)./. Smooth contours of the velocity magnitude at 25 m/s. and three outflows (two at the sides and one at the downstream). 1.5. The Jameson scheme is explicit. The results agree well with our intuition as shown in Figs. The constructed tread pattern meshes have 50. Janajreh et al. The prism is equipped with a high-speed shutter camera underneath that snaps the image of the passing tire contact patch. but it became implicit if we add the residual smoothing of Lerat. The image is post-processed and the remaining tire contact area is computed. This is due to the intrusion of the water film underneath the tire contact that separates part of the initial contact from the ground.

Abstract In this paper, error estimator and p-adaptive refinement scheme for hp-clouds method called dof splitting meshless method (DSPMM) are proposed. The error estimator detects the difference of computed stress and projected stress. The essence of the DSPMM is to construct the p-refined equations with newly appended higher order nodal dof s. The p-refined equations are solved to minimize the residual of the unrefined solution. In refinement procedure, higher order dof's are appended only on the selected nodes determined in the error estimation procedure. Therefore the size of the p-refined equations is considerably smaller than that of unrefined equations. The DSPMM improves the solution with minor additional computational costs especially for large problems.

1. Introduction Meshless methods such as element-free Galerkin (EFG) method [1] and hp-clouds method [2] are attractive for h-adaptive analysis because they do not need mesh structure that restricts the position of nodes in the formulation. Thus nodes can be easily added and deleted without consideration of the mesh structure. Hp-clouds method also has good features to adopt p-adaptive scheme since the method allows the addition of nodal dof's. Several error estimators for meshless method have been developed. Liu et al. [3] developed adaptive scheme using edge detection technique for reproducing kernel particle method (RKPM). Duarte and Oden [4] presented the error estimator derived in terms of residuals. Chung and Belytschko [5] estimated the error denoted by the difference of computed stress and projected stress. This paper presents an error estimator and dof splitting meshless method (DSPMM). The error estimator is based on the work of Chung and Belytschko [5]. In hp-clouds method, the projected stress cannot be directly obtained as in the Chung's method for EFG method because the number of shape functions is generally greater than that of nodes. Thus the projected stress in hp-clouds method * Corresponding author. Tel.: +82 (42) 869-3034; Fax: +82 (42) 869-3201; E-mail: skyoun@sorak.kaist.ac.kr © 2001 Published by Elsevier Science Ltd.

is obtained by additional formulation and matrix solution procedure. DSPMM uses the shape functions of hp-clouds method however the formulation is modified. In DSPMM, the adaptive procedure is formulated only with additional nodal dof's. The solution of DSPMM is used to update the solution of unrefined problem. This procedure allows the solution to be enhanced with minor additional computational costs. The error estimator and DSPMM are verified through numerical examples.

2. Error estimation Chung et al.'s error criterion is defined by the difference of projected stress and approximated stress. The projected stress is obtained by the linear combination of nodal stress and shape functions. The radius of influence used for the projection of stresses is smaller than that of shape functions in approximation. In hp-clouds method, the number of shape functions is greater than that of nodes. Thus the projection of nodal stress cannot be directly achieved. The stress error e^(x) in hp-clouds method can be defined as follows:

e^(x) = a'(x) - aP(x) = cj'{x) - J ^ E ^ / W o ^ ;


where a'^ix) the computed stress, a^(x) the projected

A p-refinement procedure in hp-clouds method adds higher order shape functions to the selected nodes determined by error estimator. We can write the p-refined solution uP{x) as the sum of the solution of unrefined problem u'^ix) and the correction of the solution u''(x) obtained by the adaptive analysis. uP(x) = 8vP(x) = u%x)-\-u'(x) 8v'(x)-\-8v'(x)

In Eq. (5), essential boundary conditions are already satisfied by the unrefined solution u'^ix). Thus the unrefined solution u'^ix) is in the space U, but the correction of the solution u''(x) is in the space V. The function space V is easily obtained by adopting the kinematically admissible meshless shape functions [6]. The variational formulation for the p-refined problem using the expressions of Eqs. (5) and (6) is 8n= fv,(v'' + v'f:((j'-\-a')dQ :tdrf 8(v' + v'f : b dQ

Higher order shape functions in hp-clouds method are generated by the multiplication of partition of unity functions and proper basis functions. That is, the shape functions used in unrefined analysis are not affected by the generation of higher order shape functions in p-refinement procedure. Thus, the matrix K'''' and the vector F"" in Eq. (15) is the same as those in unrefined analysis. Furthermore, the errors in analysis are localized in some critical region. In refinement process, error estimator detects the critical regions, and the solution on the critical regions is mainly improved. The changes of solution on the critical regions have an important role for improving the solution. DSPMM improves the solution only on the critical regions. The unrefined solution u^ is fixed in the refinement process. Therefore Eq. (15) is not needed because the solution u^ is already determined, only Eq. (16) is solved with the unrefined solution u"". In most adaptive analysis added dof's are not many, thus we can improve the solution with minor computational cost increments.

As shown in the p-refined results, the solution time is minor but the accuracy is comparable with hp-clouds method. In general, the accuracy of usual hp-clouds method is slightly better than that of DSPMM since DSPMM restrict the unrefined solution to be fixed. However, DSPMM requires lesser increase of computational cost.

DSPMM incorporates the results of unrefined solution in the formulation of p-refined analysis. The resulting equations are solved only for newly added nodal dof's. Thus, the solution can be improved with minor increase of computational costs. References

Modelling of friction in metal-forming processes
Stefan Kapinski *

Abstract The predetermination of friction forces in metal-forming processes is essential. Investigations have been carried with this aspect in mind. This has resulted in the elaboration of a new graphics model of friction and modernization of instruments for the forming of materials. The friction model estimates the physical phenomena for contact conditions, such as: variable states of contact and friction; the difference in the quality of friction surfaces; and the velocity of friction. The results will help optimize such metal-forming processes as: the deep drawing process and the extrusion process [ 1 - 6 ] . Keywords: Friction; Graphic model; Metal forming; Instrument; Surface; Velocity

1. Introduction The predetermination of the rising frictional forces as well as of the forces required for metal forming is of utmost importance for the pre-judgement of failures. Only then is a specific optimisation of the metal-forming process possible, for instance by tests of the frictional forces in the region of contact of the forming material with the surface of the tool. In this way, the final frictional forces, which are of very great significance for tool abrasion, can be determined, whereby the influence of different lubricants, forming material and tool metals on frictional behaviour can be taken into consideration. The predetermination of the frictional forces by a mathematical and graphical model is very useful for metal-forming processes.

2. Investigation of friction in metal-forming processes Friction depends on the quality of the surfaces, the types of materials, the direction of movement, and the velocity and pressure of materials. Fig. 1 is an exemplary scheme of real contact materials and mechanics of friction. A variety of macroscopic phenomena are associated with frictional contacts between microscopically rough surfaces. Properties such as the apparent dependence of the frictional forces on relative velocities, quality of surfaces, adhesive *Tel.: +48 (22) 660-8682; E-mail: ska@simr.pw.edu.pl © 2001 Elsevier Science Ltd.

forces and stick-slip oscillations are consequences of the combined influence of the large-scale mechanical makeup of the system and the microscopic interaction at the surface interface. The surface structure (Fig. 1) is created by technological processes and, for this reason, friction depends on direction of movement. Of fundamental importance to the properties of frictionally interacting surfaces is the tendency of microscopic localized slip to occur on macroscopic global relative sliding between the surfaces. More specifically, if a tangential shear force is applied to two bodies compressed against each other, there will be small relative displacements of elastic character, i.e. such that no residual displacement remains after unloading. However, experimental observations indicate that some plastic deformation occurs with a resulting residual displacement and consequent energy dissipation. If balance is not attained between the vertical forces, the surface separation will evolve with time. In particular, for sufficiently large separations and zero initial velocity, the pressure force will be outweighed by the remaining forces and thus the separation will tend to decrease. Similarly, when the separation is initially small, the normal force will act to separate the surfaces leading to an increase in friction. The geometrical interpretation of friction stresses is presented in Fig. 2. The parameters c, A. are connected with geometrical parameters of contact surface and value k is the material parameter.

For a situation when the movement of friction surfaces V does not exist, the tangential stress is equal to the force of reaction with reference to the contact area. For any part of the geometrical model, the shape of the model surface of friction is dependent on the quality of the material, structure of the surface friction, direction of friction (Fig. 4) and the velocity of friction. Friction creates temperature and this fact must be taken into consideration when modifying the model. The influence of temperature is presented in Fig. 5. From this model, it can be seen that temperature changes the force of friction. A high temperature decreases the force of friction and friction depends on velocity (vi < V2 < vs). This situation has been experimentally demonstrated.


Substituting in Eq. (1) the values which are expressed by formulas (2) and (3), the tangential stress may be written as follows t = c + a sin A2 (4)

The parameters c, Xi are connected with geometrical parameters of contact surface and value k is material parameter. The values of friction forces T for different situation of movement direction (p, quality of surfaces (parameters of surface and materials m) and pressures N may be described as functions (Fig. 3): • for a situation when movement of friction surfaces v does not exist (surface A): T^ = F[Ai(m, (^), A/']; • for a situation when displacement of friction surfaces is really (surface B): % = F[X2(m, cp, v), N]\


S. Kapinski / First MIT Conference on Computational Fluid and Solid Mechanics for predicting frictional behaviour in the deep drawing process. In this way, the frictional forces at the die radius and in the flange alongside the forces for bending and loss-free forming can be determined. Even at the construction stage of a deep drawing part, assessments can be made about the behaviour of different lubricants, sheet materials and tool metals. The deep-drawing process of cylindrical elements is an optimal model for the prediction of the distribution of stress and strain or frictional behaviour and frictional forces for stamping drawpieces. The frictional forces at the die radius, type of lubricate used and the forces for bending should also be exactly determined. Therefore, a new concept model of friction is presented. The model of friction may also be useful for the predetermination of friction forces for other metal-forming processes.

Abstract Fracture process of multidirectional fibre-reinforced composite laminates under tensile loading involves sequential accumulation of intra- and interlaminar damage in the form of matrix cracks and delaminations. In this paper, local delaminations growing from matrix crack tips in angle-ply laminates are analysed using fracture mechanics concepts. Closed form expression representing strain energy release rate associated with crack tip delaminations as a linear function of the first partial derivatives of the effective elastic properties of the damaged layer with respect to the delamination area is derived. Parameters controlling the value of the strain energy release rate are established. Keywords: Crack tip delamination; Local delamination; Matrix crack; Strain energy release rate; Angle-ply laminate

1. Introduction Fracture process in multidirectional fibre-reinforced composite laminates subjected to in-plane static or fatigue tensile loading involves sequential accumulation of intra- and interlaminar damage in the form of matrix cracks that appear parallel to the fibres in the off-axis plies and matrix cracking induced edge and/or local delaminations. Formation and growth of crack induced local delaminations in angle-ply [O2/O2/ — ^2]^ carbon/epoxy laminates under quasi-static and fatigue tensile loading has been reported by O'Brien and Hooper [1] and O'Brien [2]. The present paper is concerned with analysis of local delaminations in angle-ply symmetric [0i/02]^ laminates using the approach suggested by Zhang et al. [3], earlier applied to modelling transverse crack tip delaminations in [±^^/90„]^ laminates.

Matrix cracks are assumed to span the whole width of the laminate and be spaced uniformly at a distance 2s^. Local delaminations are assumed to be strip-shaped, with a strip width 21^. Since delamination growth occurs in a self-similar manner, it can be analysed using fracture mechanics concepts. The total strain energy release rate G^"^ associated with local delaminations is equal to the first partial derivative of the total strain energy U stored in the damaged laminate with respect to the total delamination area A^"^ provided the applied strains {s} are fixed and the matrix crack density C = (25^)~^ remains unchanged G'^ = dU

The strain energy release rate can be effectively calculated if instead of the damaged laminate one considers the 'equivalent' laminate, in which the damaged layer is replaced with an 'equivalent' homogeneous one with degraded stiffness properties, Zhang et al. [3]. The residual stiffness matrix [Q] of the 'equivalent' layer is a function of the relative delamination area Z)^ = ^^l/Sf^ and the relative crack density Dll"^ = h2/s^.

Fig. 2. A quarter of the representative segment of the damaged laminate. To determine the IDEFs as functions of the damage parameters Z)^^ Z)Jf, micromechanical analysis of the damaged laminate has to be performed. Since cracks and delaminations are spaced uniformly, a representative segment of the laminate, containing one matrix crack and two crack tip delaminations, may be considered. The representative segment can be segregated into the laminated and delaminated portions. Due to the symmetry, the analysis can be confined to its quarter. Fig. 2. Let alj denote the in-plane microstresses in the damaged layer (i.e. stresses averaged across the layer thickness). In the delaminated portion, we have 0-22^ = G[^ = 0. In the laminated portion, the in-plane microstresses may be determined by means of a 2-D shear lag analysis. The equilibrium equations in terms of microstresses take the form dx (n)

Here dx is the applied stress, X^ are the roots of the characteristic equation, and Akj and Cj are constants depending on the in-plane stiffness properties of the intact material [Q^^^], shear lag parameters Ku, K22 and K12 and angles 01 and 02The lamina macrostresses {a^^^}, involved in Eq.

The macrostrains in the 'equivalent' layer [s^^^} are calculated from the constitutive equations for both layers and equations of the global equilibrium of the laminate, assuming {^(^>} = {8^'^} (12)

Thus, the lamina macrostresses, Eq. (11), and macrostrains, Eq. (12), are determined as explicit functions of the damage parameters D^^, Djf. Consequently, first partial derivatives of IDEFs, Eq. (7), involved into the expressions for the strain energy release rate, Eq. (6), can be calculated analytically.

(8) As an example, predictions of strain energy release rate G^^ associated with matrix crack induced local delaminations in angle-ply [02/^21^ laminates are presented. Properties of the AS4/3506-1 graphite/epoxy material system used in calculations are as follows [1]: £"11 = 135 GPa, £22 = 11 GPa, Gn = 5.8 GPa, vn = 0.301, single ply thickness t = 0.124 mm. Fig. 3 shows the normalised strain energy release rate G^'^/sl^ for [O2/252], laminate, calculated from Eq. (7) and plotted as a function of relative deiamination area D^"^ for two matrix crack densities C = I crack/cm and C = 2 cracks/cm. These crack densities are equivalent to crack spacing of approximately 80 and 40 ply thicknesses (s = 40r, s = 20t). It may be seen that the present approach gives the strain energy release rate for local deiamination that depends both on the crack density and deiamination length. The value of G'^^/e^^ decreases with increasing deiamination length and increasing crack density. It is worth noting that closed-form expression, suggested by O'Brien [2], gives strain energy release rate for

By averaging the out-of-plane constitutive equations, the interface shear stresses Xj in Eqs. (8) are expressed in terms of the in-plane displacements u\j^ and u\f, averaged across the thickness of, respectively, (0i) and (^2) layers, so that Tj = Kjiiu (2) • u^^^) + Kj2(uf^



The shear lag parameters Ku, K22 and Ki2(= K21) are determined on the assumption that the out-of-plane shear stresses in the damaged layer and outer sublaminate vary linearly with x^^^. Substitution of Eqs. (9) into Eqs. (8) and subsequent differentiation with respect to ^2^^ lead to the equilibrium equations in terms of microstresses and microstrains (i.e. strains averaged across the layer thickness). To exclude the latter, constitutive equations for both layers, equations of the global equilibrium of the laminate as well as generalised plane strain conditions are employed. Finally, a system of coupled second-order non-homogeneous ordinary differential equations is obtained, solutions to which

Abstract The simulation of metal forming processes is performed using implicit integration analysis procedures. The approach is based on reliable and efficient solution procedures, uses the actual physical simulation parameters (that is, no adjustment of the tool velocity or work piece density is employed) and enables to achieve accurate results of the loading and spring-back processes in a single solution run. In the analyses performed, the solution times were not far from (and frequently less than) those required in explicit time integration analyses. Keywords: Metal forming; Implicit integration; Static and dynamic analysis; Spring-back

1. Introduction The finite element analysis of forming processes continues to represent significant challenges [1]. The problems are highly nonlinear, because, in general, large strains, contact and highly nonlinear material conditions are encountered. To simulate sheet metal forming processes, in addition, the metal piece to be formed is thin, which introduces also the difficulties encountered in the analysis of shells [2,3]. For the analysis of metal forming processes, effective finite element procedures are needed, and as more efficient procedures become available, increasingly more complex problems can be realistically simulated. At present, metal forming analyses are usually conducted using explicit analysis procedures. With an expHcit code, the solution is performed using an incremental dynamic analysis approach without forming a stiffness matrix and without iterating for equilibrium at the time step solutions. Hence, the solution effort per time step is relatively small. However, for the solution to be stable, the time step size has to be smaller than a critical time step, which requires many solution steps for the complete simulation. To obtain efficiency, usually finite elements are used that in a 'fast' dynamic analysis (such as a crash simulation) are tuned to obtain a good response prediction, but these ele* Corresponding author.

ments are unstable in a 'slow' dynamic or static analysis. Hence, for overall stability of the solution, the time step has to be sufficiently small and the inertia forces need to be sufficiently large. For an analysis demonstrating these requirements (see [4]). It has long been recognized that an implicit dynamic solution based on equilibrium iterations in each solution step and reliable 'non-tuned' solution procedures would be preferable for many forming analyses provided the solution is computationally effective. The physical process is then more accurately modeled, in particular also the spring-back process in sheet metal forming problems. The objective of this paper is to present the effective implicit solution procedures available in ADINA to solve metal forming processes. We briefly summarize the solution approach and procedures used, and present some solution results.

2. Implicit integration solution The basic equations solved in an implicit integration are well-known, see for example [2],

M. Kawka, K.J. Bathe/First MIT Conference on Computational Fluid and Solid Mechanics • Effective finite elements; we use the u/p elements for fully 2D and 3D solid element models and the MITC4 shell element for shell models [2,5]. These elements have a strong physical and mathematical basis. • An efficient large strain inelastic analysis algorithm; we use the effective-stress function procedure [2,5]. • A robust and efficient contact solution technique; we use the constraint-function method [2,5] • An efficient equation solver; we use a sparse solver developed specifically for the program ADINA; the solver includes parallel-processing capabilities [5]. The individual advantages of the above-mentioned procedures were discussed in earlier publications, see references, but of course, for an overall effective analysis, these procedures need to work efficiently together and this has been achieved in the ADINA program. 3. Sample solutions The objective in this section is to present the results of some sample analyses. We consider cases that indicate some important features of the analysis capabilities available. All results were obtained using the implicit solution approach described above. 3.1. 2-D draw bending problem A very simple 2-D draw bending benchmark problem from the Numisheet '93 Conference (see Fig. 1) tests the

where M is the mass matrix, C is the damping matrix, K is the tangent stiffness matrix, R is the load vector, F is the nodal force vector corresponding to the internal element stresses, U is the displacement vector, the superscript r +Ar denotes the time at which the equations are formulated, and the superscripts (/) and (/ — 1) denote the current and previous iterations. An unconditionally stable implicit time integration scheme, for example, the trapezoidal rule, is used to discretize Eq. (1) in time. The equations given above do not explicitly show the contact conditions, but these can be imposed as described in [2]. We note that with Eqs. (1) and (2) iterations are performed until the equilibrium is satisfied at each time step (to a reasonable convergence tolerance). Of course, if a static analysis is pursued, simply the inertia and damping effects are not included in the solution. An effective implicit integration solution provides several advantages over explicit integration. Most importantly, there is no need to manipulate the metal forming technological parameters (such as the tool velocity or material density) in order to achieve the solution. Therefore, the calculated results are much more reliable than obtained in explicit integration. This situation is easily observed in the analyses of processes in which the spring-back must also be simulated: the implicit integration solution provides good results in a single run simulating the loading and spring-back conditions. An effective solution of Eq. (1), including contact conditions, must be based on reliable and efficient solution procedures. We list here briefly the techniques used in ADINA.

M. Kawka, K.J. Bathe/First MIT Conference on Computational Fluid and Solid Mechanics ability of the software to predict accurately the springback after stamping [6]. Surprisingly, at the time of the Numisheet '93 Conference (of course, about eight years ago) most of the commercial software could not be used to produce reliable results. In our simulation, 105 nine-noded u/p elements were used (with only one layer through the thickness), and results very close to the experimental data were obtained (see Fig. 1; for brevity, the results for the high tensile steel are presented only). 5.2. Hemming problem The solution of this problem tests the stability and efficiency of contact algorithms. The simulation software has to deal with two types of contact conditions: the 'deformable body to deformable body' condition and the 'deformable body to rigid surface' condition. In the hemming problem (see Fig. 2), large strain conditions need also be modeled, and therefore the problem is an excellent test for finite element software. In our simulation, 90 nine-noded u/p elements were used for the outer panel and 54 elements were employed for the inner panel. A total of 1800 incremental solution steps were used in the simulation. Despite the large deformations in the bent section of the outer panel (up to 100% strains were measured) and the continuously changing contact conditions between the inner and outer panels, excellent convergence with an average of only four iterations per step in the incremental solution was observed. 3.3. Deep drawing of an oil pan This industrial problem of a deep drawing of an oil pan [7] requires a powerful simulation code and versatile shell elements able to deal with the complex deformation path. In our simulation 16,922 MITC4 shell elements were used to represent the metal sheet and 16,500 rigid elements were employed to define the tool surfaces. The simulation was performed on a UNIX workstation using parallel-processing, a HP-J5000 workstation was employed. The results of the simulation compare very well with experimental measurements (see Fig. 3).

4. Conclusions The objective of this paper was to briefly present some solution capabilities for the simulation of metal forming processes. The implicit dynamic (including static) analysis capabilities developed in ADINA for metal forming processes and specifically sheet metal forming processes were summarized and some solution results given. The procedures are computationally effective when compared to explicit techniques now in wide use and allow the more realistic modeling of many metal forming processes.

All of the material models return a sound speed for each element. The isolation of code pieces into mechanics permits dynamic addition or removal of features as needed in an analysis. A large number of kinematic and traction boundary conditions have already been implemented in PRESTO. 1. four.

To drive the solution of a problem over time. in which known quantities at time t are stored as the 'old' state and quantities obtained by projecting ahead A^new to time t H. the PRESTO region is nested within a procedure mechanics. respectively. Mechanics can be nested inside each other to create a rational structure for computation.^jJ/(A^old) + iUt• Ut)/(Atnc^) 295 (5) ^2500 where At in general denotes a time step increment. a TEMPO procedure has also been created which couples PRESTO with the quasi-static structural code ADAGIO [7].At^x^/l and t + Arnew/2. This convention makes it easy to update velocities and displacements. All of the current elements have both a midpoint-incremental and strongly objective formulation to compute strain rates.W. Small-strain formulations for the material models can then be used within a large deformation environment. This module is responsible for the solution of the discretized equations of motion for a single time increment. Included in the boundary condition set are some specialized boundary conditions such as silent boundary. beam and spring elements. The core level of PRESTO is the region mechanics. which may contain multiple regions for a multi-physics coupling. Material models are mechanics which nest inside the elements. PRESTO uses the ACME (Algorithms for Contact in a Multi-physics Environment) package [5]. The PRESTO region incorporates a two state architecture. A procedure mechanics.. The processing of elements occurs within element mechanics.R. as well as fully integrated formulations. Boundary conditions also exist as mechanics nested within the region. Currently. as well as other values. The region contains a number of nested mechanics which conduct computations for elements. Velocities are computed at times t .

The current element library includes an under-integrated eight-node hexahedral element. to the new state. and current plans for PRESTO include wedge. and then pass the pre-stress data as initial conditions into PRESTO. which are nested inside the region as needed. etc. The SIERRA framework provides extensive capabilities for transferring data between regions. and periodic boundary conditions.

E-mail: kuebler@ltm. An important problem within the hybrid simulation approach is the computation of the required mechanical information for the transitions between the two approaches. Several aspects have to be considered to enable a reliable hybrid contact simulation. Energy-based switching criterion. If several potentially colliding bodies are under consideration. there seems to be few material in literature concerning mixed or hybrid multibody system/finite element contacts. it has been shown to be efficient to compute the motion of non-colliding bodies by the multibody system (MBS) method and the motion and deformation of colliding bodies with the nonlinear finite element (FE) method. the nontrivial problem when and how to switch back and forth between the different modeling approaches is investigated. as here the intrinsic information of the discretized body has to be reduced to the smaller amount of rigid body information. For the example of three moving bodies which are colliding successively and the corresponding MBS/FEM transitions see Fig. see e. i. Since it is not known in advance which bodies collide and how long they remain in contact. and also finite element contact has gained great maturity. Hybrid simulation. 1.

The basic characteristic of the formulation is the definition of a global approximation for the variables of interest in each problem (the deflection for the plate bending problem and the stress function for the stretching plates) from a set of radial basis functions conveniently placed (but not necessarily in a regular manner) at the boundary and in the domain. Interpolation using RBFs Radial basis functions have initially been used by mathematicians working on scattered data fitting and general multi-dimensional data interpolation problems. by using radial basis functions: N ^ ~ ^j ) (1) i^hM = y^aj(p( 7=1 X• ) (4) where 0( x .
