Isogeometric Analysis: Toward Integration of CAD and FEA by J. Austin Cottrell

By J. Austin Cottrell

“The authors are the originators of isogeometric research, are very good scientists and reliable educators. it's very unique. there's no different e-book in this topic.”—Ren? de Borst, Eindhoven collage of TechnologyWritten through best specialists within the box and that includes totally built-in color all through, Isogeometric research presents a groundbreaking resolution for the mixing of CAD and FEA applied sciences. Tom Hughes and his researchers, Austin Cottrell and Yuri Bazilevs, current their pioneering isogeometric process, which goals to combine the 2 ideas of CAD and FEA utilizing specific NURBS geometry within the FEA program. This expertise bargains the aptitude to revolutionise car, send and aircraft layout and research by way of permitting versions to be designed, verified and changed in a single integrative stage.Providing a scientific method of the subject, the authors start with an educational introducing the rules of Isogeometric research, ahead of advancing to a entire assurance of the latest advancements within the approach. The authors provide a transparent clarification as to tips on how to upload isogeometric functions to latest finite point desktop courses, demonstrating the right way to enforce and use the expertise. exact programming examples and datasets are incorporated to impart an intensive wisdom and knowing of the material.Provides examples of alternative functions, displaying the reader how one can enforce isogeometric modelsAddresses readers on each side of the CAD/FEA divideDescribes Non-Uniform Rational B-Splines (NURBS) foundation capabilities

Sample text

In NURBS, the basis functions are usually not interpolatory. There are two notions of meshes, the control mesh2 and the physical mesh. The control points define the control mesh, and the control mesh interpolates the control points. The control mesh consists of multilinear elements, in two dimensions they are bilinear quadrilateral elements, and in three dimensions they are trilinear hexahedra. The control mesh does not conform to the actual geometry. Rather, it is like a scaffold that controls the geometry.

Unlike in standard finite element analysis, the B-spline parameter space is local to patches rather than elements. 1. 2. Each element in the physical space is the image of a corresponding element in the parameter space, but the mapping itself is global to the whole patch, rather than to the elements themselves. Patches play the role of subdomains within which element types and material models are assumed to be uniform. Many simple domains can be represented by a single patch. 1 Knot vectors A knot vector in one dimension is a non-decreasing set of coordinates in the parameter space, written = {ξ1 , ξ2 , .

20 Knot insertion. Control points are denoted by . The knots, which define a mesh by partitioning the curve into elements, are denoted by . Each element has been evenly split in the parametric domain. mesh, and basis functions of the unrefined curve are shown on the left. 5. The new curve, shown on the right, is geometrically and parametrically identical to the original curve, but the control points are changed, the mesh is partitioned, and the basis is richer. There is one more control point, one more element, and one more basis function than in the unrefined case.
