Eigenerosion for static and dynamic brittle fracture

In contrast to many numerical methods, the eigenerosion approach yields a convenient description of fracture handled in the postprocessing part of a Finite Element Analysis (FEA). Its fully energetic formulation avoids the introduction of extra degrees of freedom to model fracture propagation. Following previous works on eigenerosion, in this publication, a modified formulation of eigenfracture it is introduced, where it is distinguished between compression and tension loaded state.

A simplified model for railway catenary wire dynamics

In this paper, a simplified analytic model for the dynamic behaviour of railway catenary wire is presented. The model is discussed and validated with the help of numerical results obtained by a finite element code, for the case of a typical Italian railway installation. The simplified model is convenient from the computational point of view and is useful for sensitivity analysis. Some parametric studies have been developed by considering as free parameters the velocity and the distance of the train pantographs and looking at their effect on catenary dynamics.

Sardinia radio telescope finite element model updating by means of photogrammetric measurements

 The 64 m diameter Sardinia Radio Telescope (SRT), located near Cagliari (Italy), is the world’s second largest fully steerable radio telescope with an active surface. Among its peculiarities is the capability of modifying the configuration of the primary mirror surface by means of electromechanical actuators. This capability enables, within a fixed range, balancing of the deformation caused by external loads.

Structural Engineering in 20 years time??!

Since early 60’s the world of structural engineering has been revolutionised. The advance development in science and technology resolved those issues raised by pioneer engineers but at the same time introduced complications into the world of engineering never known before. The question is where we see structural engineering within the next decade. How do we think it will evolve?
