Abstract The main objective of this paper is to develop a novel multiscale approach for simulating static and stationary dynamic crack problems in two-dimensional elastic solids through an extended isogeometric analysis using the Non-Uniform Rational B-Splines (NURBS). This multiscale strategy consists of two techniques that the Nitsche’s method is applied for coupling different length-scales meshes on one hand, and on the other hand, a local enrichment technique is taken to describe the cracks independently of the mesh in the refined region by introducing the enrichment function into the isogeometric analysis displacement approximation. This method inherits the advantage of XIGA and simultaneously improves his limitation on the local mesh refinement. The proposed approach possesses several advantages in fracture modeling: (i) the singularities of the crack-tip fields can be captured precisely and conveniently by the enrichment techniques; (ii) higher-order convergence rates is achieved and (iii) stress smoothing results are achieved owing to higher continuity of NURBS basis functions. Numerical results of static and stationary dynamic crack problems validate its accuracy and efficiency.

In this two-part paper we introduce a new formulation for modeling progressive damage in laminated composite structures. We adopt a multi-layer modeling approach, based on Isogeometric Analysis (IGA), where each ply or lamina is represented by a spline surface, and modeled as a Kirchhoff–Love thin shell. Continuum Damage Mechanics is used to model intralaminar damage, and a new zero-thickness cohesive-interface formulation is introduced to model delamination as well as permitting laminate-level ...

Abstract In this paper, we present an effective computational approach that combines an adaptive extended isogeometric analysis (XIGA) method with locally refined (LR) B-splines and level set methods for modeling multiple inclusions in two-dimensional (2D) elasticity problems. The advantage of XIGA is to model inclusions without considering internal inclusion interfaces by additional functions. Multiple level set functions are used to represent the location of inclusion interfaces and to define ...

Abstract Following a series of recent innovations, isogeometric shell analysis based on trimmed CAD surfaces is currently being developed into an accurate, efficient and mature design-through-analysis methodology. This work contributes to this emerging technology with respect to the following aspects. On the analysis side, we present a robust variationally consistent Nitsche-type formulation for thin shells at large deformations that weakly enforces coupling constraints at trimming curves. On th...

This paper presents an isogeometric formulation for frictionless contact between deformable bodies, based on the recently proposed concept of the third medium. This concept relies on continuum formulations not only for the contacting bodies but also for a fictitious intermediate medium in which the bodies can move and interact. Key to the formulation is a suitable definition of the constitutive behavior of the third medium. In this work, based on a number of numerical tests, the role of the mate...

Abstract An adaptive higher-order method based on a generalization of polynomial/rational splines over hierarchical T-meshes (PHT/RHT-splines) is introduced. While most problems considered in isogeometric analysis can be solved efficiently when the solution is smooth, many non-trivial simulations have rough solutions. This can be caused, for example, by the presence of re-entrant corners in the domain. For such problems, a tensor-product basis is less suitable for resolving the singularities tha...

Summary Adaptive local refinement is one of the main issues for isogeometric analysis (IGA). In this paper, an adaptive extended IGA (XIGA) approach based on polynomial splines over hierarchical T-meshes (PHT-splines) for modeling crack propagation is presented. The PHT-splines overcome certain limitations of non-uniform rational B-splines (NURBS)-based formulations; in particular, they make local refinements feasible. To drive the adaptive mesh refinement, we present a recovery-based error esti...

Abstract This paper presents an effective plate formulation coupling the merits of isogeometric analysis (IGA) and a new non-classical simple first-order shear deformation theory (SFSDT) for static bending, free vibration, and buckling of functionally graded (FG) moderately thick microplates. In contrast to the conventional first-order shear deformation theory (FSDT), the new SFSDT adopted here inherently owns several advantages such as free from shear-locking, capturing the shear-deformation ef...

Abstract A novel multi-resolution scheme to perform the multi-material topology optimization in the framework of isogeometric analysis (IGA) is proposed. To create high resolution optimized designs with a lower computational cost, a new variable parameter space is supplemented to define design density variables and represent the optimal material distribution utilizing the bivariate B-spline basis functions. These functions are simply obtained by k -refinement strategy in the IGA. The non-uniform...

Abstract Strong imposing Dirichlet boundary conditions remain a challenge for eXtended Finite Element Methods (XFEMs) or eXtended Isogeometric Analysis (XIGA) of discontinuous problems. Moreover, the physical meaning of the additional Degrees of Freedom (DOFs) in the displacement expression of XFEMs or XIGA is not clarified. To address these issues, we proposed a new method that combines XIGA and B++ splines for modeling the fracture behaviors of single and multiple cracks in 2D elasticity solid...

Abstract The objective of this article is to simulate crack growth of complex Mindlin–Reissner plates by developing an adaptive multi-patch extended isogeometric analysis (XIGA). Nitsche’s method is used to treat continuity between multi-patches or the coupling of non-conforming meshes, exactly describing the geometry of complex plates. The computational meshes in XIGA are independent of the cracks by introducing some enrichment functions into the displacement approximation based on the partitio...

Abstract A continuous-discontinuous cellular automaton method (CDCA) is developed for dynamic crack propagation. First, a separated time integral scheme is built, in which time difference is divided into two separated time steps: one balances the change of the geometric discretization caused by crack growing, and the other balances the dynamic loading. Second, an adaptive energy conservation strategy is proposed for the CDCA that includes the change in the degree of nodal freedom for the crack t...

Recently, eliminating the gap between design and formability analysis of sheet metal parts has been studied to simulate sheet metal stamping processes. In this regard, a transfer-based inverse isogeometric formulation has been proposed. This method has various advantages such as solving the governing equations in two-dimensional networks without any concern about the convergence; however, it neglects the bending effect which is a major contributor in die/punch profile radii. The present work aim...

Abstract This contribution establishes a coupled numerical method to show its effectiveness in the simulation of LEFM problems. The semi-meshless method uses the MLPG1 meshfree theory to discrete governing equations while geometry is modeled by simple CPS3 triangular cells. The cells help to propose an efficient neighboring method for meshfree interpolations. Three benchmark homogeneous cases are considered whose analytical solutions are available to carefully examine the accuracy of this method...

Abstract This paper is devoted to numerical investigation of holes/voids effects on crack growth in solids using a locally refined (LR) B-splines extended isogeometric analysis (XIGA). We particularly focus our attention on crack-hole interaction analysis. Special enrichment functions captured discontinuity and singularity are used, by which the computational mesh are thus independent of both cracks and holes, eliminating re-meshing when modeling crack growth. Geometries of arbitrary shaped crac...

This work presents numerical techniques to enforce continuity constraints on multi-patch surfaces for three distinct problem classes. The first involves structural analysis of thin shells that are described by general Kirchhoff-Love kinematics. Their governing equation is a vector-valued, fourth-order, nonlinear, partial differential equation (PDE) that requires at least C^1continuity within a displacement-based finite element formulation. The second class are surface phase separations modele...
