An isogeometric boundary element method based on T-splines is used to simulate acoustic phenomena. We restrict our developments to low-frequency problems to establish the fundamental properties of the proposed approach. Using T-splines, the computer aided design (CAD) and boundary element analysis are integrated without recourse to geometry clean-up or mesh generation. A regularized Burton–Miller formulation is used resulting in integrals which are at most weakly singular. We employ a collocation-based approach to generate the linear system of equations. The method is verified against closed-form solutions and direct comparisons are made with conventional Lagrangian discretizations. It is demonstrated that the superior accuracy of the isogeometric approach emanates from the exact geometric description encapsulated in the T-spline. The method is then applied to a real-world application to illustrate the potential for integrated engineering design and analysis.

We establish several fundamental properties of analysis-suitable T-splines which are important for design and analysis. First, we characterize T-spline spaces and prove that the space of smooth bicubic polynomials, defined over the extended T-mesh of an analysis-suitable T-spline, is contained in the corresponding analysis-suitable T-spline space. This is accomplished through the theory of perturbed analysis-suitable T-spline spaces and a simple topological dimension formula. Second, we establis...

T-spline-based isogeometric analysis is applied to frictionless contact problems between deformable bodies in the context of large deformations. The continuum is discretized with cubic T-splines and cubic NURBS. A Gauss-point-to-surface formulation is combined with the penalty method to treat the contact constraints in the discretized setting. It is demonstrated that analysis-suitable T-splines, coupled with local refinement, accurately approximate contact pressures with far fewer degrees of fre...

In this paper we introduce methods for electromagnetic wave propagation, based on splines and on T-splines. We define spline spaces which form a De Rham complex and following the isogeometric paradigm, we map them on domains which are (piecewise) spline or NURBS geometries. We analyze their geometric and topological structure, as related to the connectivity of the underlying mesh, and we present degrees of freedom together with their physical interpretation. The theory is then extended to the ca...

Isogeometric analysis is a topic of considerable interest in the field of numerical analysis. The boundary element method (BEM) requires only the bounding surface of geometries to be described; this makes non-uniform rational B-splines (NURBS), which commonly describe the bounding curve or surface of geometries in CAD software, appear to be a natural tool for the approach. This isogeometric analysis BEM (IGABEM) provides accuracy benefits over conventional BEM schemes due to the analytical geome...

In the present work isogeometric analysis is applied to the solution of the boundary integral equation associated with the Neumann–Kelvin problem and the calculation of the wave resistance of ships. As opposed to low-order panel methods, where the body is represented by a large number of quadrilateral panels and the velocity potential is assumed to be piecewise constant (or approximated by low degree polynomials) on each panel, the isogeometric concept is based on exploiting the same NURBS basis...

We couple collocated isogeometric boundary element methods and unstructured analysis-suitable T-spline surfaces for linear elastostatic problems. We extend the definition of analysis-suitable T-splines to encompass unstructured control grids (unstructured meshes) and develop basis functions which are smooth (rational) polynomials defined in terms of the Bezier extraction framework and which pass standard patch tests. We then develop a collocation procedure which correctly accounts for sharp edge...

We explore hierarchical refinement of NURBS as a basis for adaptive isogeometric and immersed boundary analysis. We use the principle of B-spline subdivision to derive a local refinement procedure, which combines full analysis suitability of the basis with straightforward implementation in tree data structures and simple generalization to higher dimensions. We test hierarchical refinement of NURBS for some elementary fluid and structural analysis problems in two and three dimensions and attain g...

Abstract In this paper we develop a framework for fluid–structure interaction (FSI) modeling and simulation with emphasis on isogeometric analysis (IGA) and non-matching fluid–structure interface discretizations. We take the augmented Lagrangian approach to FSI as a point of departure. Here the Lagrange multiplier field is defined on the fluid–structure interface and is responsible for coupling of the two subsystems. Thus the FSI formulation does not rely on the continuity of the underlying func...

Abstract In contrast to discrete descriptions of fracture, phase-field descriptions do not require numerical tracking of discontinuities in the displacement field. This greatly reduces implementation complexity. In this work, we extend a phase-field model for quasi-static brittle fracture to the dynamic case. We introduce a phase-field approximation to the Lagrangian for discrete fracture problems and derive the coupled system of equations that govern the motion of the body and evolution of the ...

The concept of isogeometric analysis, where functions that are used to describe geometry in CAD software are used to approximate the unknown fields in numerical simulations, has received great attention in recent years. The method has the potential to have profound impact on engineering design, since the task of meshing, which in some cases can add significant overhead, has been circumvented. Much of the research effort has been focused on finite element implementations of the isogeometric conce...

Abstract null null UE-splines are generalizations of uniform polynomial splines, trigonometric splines, hyperbolic splines and exponential splines defined as parametric splines in non-rational form. At the same time, they can exactly represent a wide class of basic analytic shapes commonly used in engineering applications. Further, UE-splines with uniform knot intervals can be conveniently generated by subdivision methods. In this paper, we use them to model many kinds of basic analytic shapes a...

Both the CAD geometry and the physical boundary variables are approximated using Non-uniform Rational B-splines basis functions (NURBS) in an isogeometric setting.

This paper simulates the propagation of hydraulic fractures under constant fluid pressure using the isogeometric analysis based on boundary element methods (BEM) i.e. the so called isogeomtric BEM. Due to the seamless integration between computer aided design (CAD) and numerical analysis, the isogeomtric BEM eliminates the meshing procedure and geometric errors, and explicitly parametrizes the crack propagation path. Graded knot insertion near the crack tip is used to effectively capture the str...

Abstract This paper is aimed at solving the thermo-elastic problems with the gravity load by the line integration boundary element method (LIBEM). The boundary-only discretization, as one of the significant advantages of BEM, will disappear due to considering the thermal and gravity loads, specifically, domain integrals turn up in the original boundary integral equations (BIEs). Hence, the LIBEM, owning the dimension reduction ability, is introduced to reduce domain integrals dimensionally to en...

This work models spatially uncorrelated (independent) load uncertainty and develops a reduced-order Monte Carlo stochastic isogeometric method to quantify the effect of the load uncertainty on the structural response of thin shells and solid structures. The approach is tested on two demonstrative applications of uncertainty, namely, spatially uncorrelated loading, with (1) Scordelis–Lo Roof shell structure, and (2) a 3D wind turbine blade. This work has three novelties. Firstly, the research mod...

Abstract This study presents a combined shape and topology optimization method for designing sound barriers by using the isogeometric boundary element method. The objective function of combined optimization is defined as the sound pressure in reference plane. The sensitivity analysis for the combined optimization is conducted by using either the direct differentiation method or the adjoint variable method. For a shape design, the design variables are the positions of control points in isogeometr...
