"Evaluation of stresses in Isogeometric analysis"


I am trying to find the method of stress evaluation used in Isogeometric analysis. I havn't come to know any numerical process for stress computation along with its implementation in IGA.  Can someone please help me in this regard.

Thanks -Vishal

Evolution of elastic modulus in roll forming

Abstract: Roll forming is a continuous process in which a flat strip is incrementally bent to a desired profile. This process is increasingly used in automotive industry to form High Strength Steel (HSS) and Advanced High Strength Steel (AHSS) for structural components. Because of the large variety of applications of roll forming in the industry, Finite Element Analysis (FEA) is increasingly employed for roll forming process design. Formability and springback are two major concerns in the roll forming AHSS materials.

Two PhD positions are available immediately in Computational Mechanics & Materials

Two PhD positions are available immediately in Computational Mechanics & Materials.

One project (NSF grant) is about multi-phase field modeling of formation and evolution of intermetallics and oxides at high temperatures in advanced high strength steels. Another project (NSF grant) is about multi-phase field modeling of evolution of oxide bifilms in solidification of metals. 


Simplified slip-bearing action by using stop ellement in Abaqus

can anyone please advise me to define connector ellements with following details:
Using rigid plastic CARTESIAN element and a STOP element in parallel and The connector behaviour must be:
1- rigid up to the slip force limit Rn
2- slip at the bolts up to ±1 mm at constant force Rn
3- rigid bearing hardening

PhD/RA position in Nonlinear Dynamics Laboratory @ the University of Rhode Island

The nonlinear dynamics laboratory at the University of Rhode Island has an open position for a PhD student supported through research assistantship (including tuition remittance) starting Summer or Fall 2016. This position is supported by NSF grant. This research has a multidisciplinary nature incorporating material science, dynamical systems modeling, fatigue testing, and nonlinear time series analysis.

ABAQUS, partitioning an edge

Hello Everyone,

Does anyone knows how it is possible to partition an edge in one step with multiple points (like multiple datum points or multiple parameter values)? I know how to partition one edge one by one. The problem of doing it one by one is the amount of time that it takes to do that. For example if I want to put 50 points on one edge I have to pick that edge 50 times and partition it, which takes a lot of time.

I am doing the whole process by scripting with Python so I would be glad if the solutions are in scripting format (I am using ABAQUS 2016).

Effect of extension twins on texture evolution at elevated temperature deformation accompanied by dynamic recrystallization

 High temperature deformation processing of magnesium and its alloys is often 
accompanied by dynamic recrystallization (DRX). Deformation twinning is one of the main 
deformation mechanisms in HCP metals, but very few works are available in literature 
(experimental or modelling) which investigate the effect of the deformation twinning on 
dynamic recrystallization. The current study provides insights regarding the deformation

Reconstruction of the 3D representative volume element from the generalized two-point correlation function

This paper presents the first application of three-dimensional (3D) cross-correlation 
microstructure reconstruction implemented for a representative volume element (RVE) to 
facilitate the microstructure engineering of materials. This has been accomplished by 
developing a new methodology for reconstructing 3D microstructure using experimental two-
dimensional electron backscatter diffraction data. 

how can i model a BRB Brace in abaqus

hi every body

I model a brb(Buckling restrained brace) in Abaqus but my question is How to put concrete in a brb or How do I define the concrete inside the brb that work together? i use tie constraint But there isn't any stress for concrete! 
i use static,General for analysis! is it correct? 

Summer School - HPC for Engineering Simulation

The STFC Hartree Centre (in Warrington, UK - located between Manchester & Liverpool) is running 4 high performance computing summer schools from June to July 2016. They are primarily aimed at PhD students and postdoctoral researchers, but are also open to academics and industry at no extra cost. The tuition fees are subsidised by STFC and each week only costs £150. There is a 1 week school on each of the following topics:

Post-doctoral position in Computational Materials Mechanics at NUS, Singapore

We have an opening for a post-doctoral fellow position in multiscale computational mechanics of polymers. The project focuses on modeling and simulation of the thermo-mechanical behavior of polymers with covalent adaptable networks (CANs), e.g. vitrimers. The objective is to formulate a hierarchical modeling and simulation approach, which closely mimics key steps in the recycling and reshaping processes of CAN polymers by embedding the physics at two length-scales – (i) discrete-continuum (meso-scale) and (ii) homogenized continuum (macro-scale).

Secret of high strength and toughness of abalone seashell

Among all inspiring bio-material, Abalone seashell has its unique characteristics of high strength and toughness. Though , there is the general trend in materials that some of the toughness have been compromised for the sake of increasing hardness and vice versa. This astonishing property of sea shell attracts material scientists to understand the root cause for this property. One of such enthusiast, Prof. Kalpana Katti at North Dakota State University unlocked these secret of these phenomenon lies in its microstructure.
