Abstract
The isogeometric analysis (IGA), which employs non-uniform rational B-splines (NURBS) basis as shape functions for both representation of geometry and approximation of the field variables, owns several inherent advantages to become an effective numerical method such as an exact geometry description with fewer control points, high-order continuity, and high accuracy. Unlike the C0-continuity shape functions in the conventional finite element method (FEM), the high-order basis functions in IGA are not confined to one element, but span on several elements instead. This property makes the programming task difficult, and more importantly they cannot be straightforwardly embedded into the existing FEM framework. In this paper, we provide an effective numerical scheme by further extending the IGA based on the Bezier extraction of NURBS to study mechanical behavior of elasto-plastic problems in three-dimension (3D). The Bezier extraction operator decomposes NURBS functions into a set of Bernstein polynomials and provides C0-continuity Bezier elements for the IGA, which are similar to Lagrange elements structure. Consequently, the implementation of IGA is now similar to that of conventional FEM, and can easily be embedded in most existing FEM codes. The merits of the proposed formulation are also demonstrated by its convergence and validation studies against reference solutions considering both simple and complicated configurations.

Abstract We combine the isogeometric analysis, the level set and a simple first-order shear deformation theory (S-FSDT) to form a new effective and accurate approach for simulating free vibration and buckling problems of laminated composite plates with cutouts. The problem domain is discretized using non-uniform rational B-spline (NURBS) basis functions, which are utilized for geometry and field variables approximation. In S-FSDT, the shear locking effect is no longer valid and more interestingl...

Abstract Accurate numerical modeling of multifield piezoelectric materials is challenging because of the inherent electro-mechanical coupling effect and material anisotropic behaviors. The modeling becomes even more difficult especially for problems with non-smooth solutions like crack under dynamic loading. We present in this paper an extension of the extended isogeometric analysis (XIGA) for simulation of two-dimensional fracture mechanics problems in piezoelectric materials under dynamic and ...

Abstract Numerical modeling with treatment of trimmed objects such as internal cutouts in terms of NURBS-based isogeometric analysis presents several challenges, primarily due to the tensor product of the NURBS basis functions. In this paper we develop a new simple and effective isogeometric analysis for modeling buckling and free vibration problems of thin laminated composite plates with cutouts. We adopt the classical plate theory for the present formulation. The new approach can nicely overco...

In the conventional isogeometric analysis, a topologically complex shell structure is required to be modeled using multiple NURBS patches. In the CAD industry, however, the topologically complex shell structure is conveniently and efficiently created via trimming techniques rather than constructing multiple untrimmed NURBS patches. With this feature, the isogeometric analysis which enables to handle the topologically complex shell structure with a single NURBS patch is presented in this paper. I...

Abstract This paper presents a novel approach based on isogeometric analysis (IGA) and a simple first-order shear deformation plate theory (S-FSDT) for geometrically nonlinear analysis of homogeneous and non-homogeneous functionally graded plates. Owing to many advantages such as (a) the S-FSDT is free of shear-locking, (b) less one unknown for the S-FSDT as compared with the conventional FSDT, (c) the awkward C 1 continuity required for the generalized displacements is treated straightforwardly...

Abstract We introduce Bezier projection as an element-based local projection methodology for B-splines, NURBS, and T-splines. This new approach relies on the concept of Bezier extraction and an associated operation introduced here, spline reconstruction, enabling the use of Bezier projection in standard finite element codes. Bezier projection exhibits provably optimal convergence and yields projections that are virtually indistinguishable from global L 2 projection. Bezier projection is used to ...

Abstract In this paper hierarchical analysis-suitable T-splines (HASTS) are developed. The resulting spaces are a superset of both analysis-suitable T-splines and hierarchical B-splines. The additional flexibility provided by the hierarchy of T-spline spaces results in simple, highly localized refinement algorithms which can be utilized in a design or analysis context. A detailed theoretical formulation is presented. Bezier extraction is extended to HASTS simplifying the implementation of HASTS ...

This paper concerns a novel isogeometric Timoshenko beam formulation for a geometrically nonlinear analysis of spatial beams using the total Lagrangian description. Constitutive laws for hyperelastic materials, whose behavior varies with their deformations, are widely defined by using strain energy density functions that are written in terms of the Green–Lagrange strain tensor. Many finite element beam formulations for geometrically nonlinear analyses of spatial beams are developed using the Gre...

Abstract Nonlinear behaviors are commonplace in many engineering applications, e.g., metal forming and vehicle crash tests. Different from linear systems, nonlinear problems cannot be solved by using a system of linear equations and there is no guarantee that a unique solution can be found. In this work, we develop a unified framework, NLIGA (Non-Linear Isogeometric Analysis), for mainly solving two and three-dimensional nonlinear problems on the MATLAB platform by using the isogeometric method....

In this paper, employing a new numerical framework, a 2D investigation is conducted on the effect of fiber-matrix contact/debonding on the stress–strain response of fiber-reinforced elastomeric composites. The analysis is carried out in the framework of large deformation/sliding. The main novelty of this work resides in using hybrid IsoGeometric-Finite Element (IG-FE) technique to discretize the domain where interfaces together with a band around them are represented by NURBS patches. These patc...

Abstract This article investigates the numerical solution of saturated unconfined seepage problems in which a fluid with a free surface passes through a porous media. In such cases, the geometry of the wet region is unknown in advance and must be obtained through an iterative process. Such problems are known as variable domain problems. Since the use of traditional mesh based numerical methods is not straight forward due to remeshing difficulties, the isogeometric analysis is proposed here which...

Using a continuum-based design sensitivity analysis (DSA) method, a configuration design optimization method is developed for curved Kirchhoff beams with shape memory polymers (SMP), from which we systematically synthesize lattice structures achieving target negative Poisson’s ratio. A SMP phenomenological constitutive model for small strains is utilized. A Jaumann strain, based on the geometrically exact beam theory, is additively decomposed into elastic, stored, and thermal parts. Non-homogene...
