Abstract This paper presents an acoustic topology optimization approach using isogeometric boundary element methods based on subdivision surfaces to optimize the distribution of sound adsorption materials adhering to structural surfaces. The geometries are constructed from triangular control meshes through Loop subdivision scheme, and the associated Box-spline functions that generate limit smooth subdivision surfaces are employed to discretize the acoustic boundary integral equations. The effect of sound-absorbing materials on the acoustic response is characterized by acoustic impedance boundary conditions. The optimization problem is formulated in the framework of Solid Isotropic Material with Penalization methods and the sound absorption coefficients on elements are selected as design variables. The potential of the proposed topology optimization approach for engineering prototyping is illustrated by numerical examples.

Abstract The boundary element method (BEM) is a powerful tool in computational acoustics, because the analysis is conducted only on structural surfaces, compared to the finite element method (FEM) which resorts to special techniques to truncate infinite domains. The isogeometric boundary element method (IGABEM) is a recent progress in the category of boundary element approaches, which is inspired by the concept of isogeometric analysis (IGA) and employs the spline functions of CAD as basis funct...

Abstract This work presents an adaptive Singular Value Decomposition (SVD)–Krylov reduced order model to solve structural optimization problems. By utilizing the SVD, it is shown that the solution space of a structural optimization problem can be decomposed into a geometry subspace and a design subspace. Any structural response of a specific configuration in the optimization problem is then obtained through a linear combination of the geometry and design subspaces. This indicates that in solving...

Abstract A simple skew-symmetric Nitsche’s formulation is introduced into the framework of isogeometric analysis (IGA) to deal with various problems in small strain elasticity: essential boundary conditions, symmetry conditions for Kirchhoff plates, patch coupling in statics and in modal analysis as well as Signorini contact conditions. For linear boundary or interface conditions, the skew-symmetric formulation is parameter-free. For contact conditions, it remains stable and accurate for a wide ...

A topology optimization approach is proposed for the optimal design of bi-material distribution on underwater shell structures. The coupled finite element method (FEM) / boundary element method (BEM) scheme is used for the system response analysis, where the strong interaction between the structural and the acoustic domain is considered. The Burton-Miller formulation is used to overcome the fictitious eigen-frequency problem when using a single Helmholtz boundary integral equation for exterior a...

This paper presents an approach to generalize the concept of isogeometric analysis by allowing different spaces for the parameterization of the computational domain and for the approximation of the solution field. The method inherits the main advantage of isogeometric analysis, ie, preserves the original exact computer‐aided design geometry (for example, given by nonuniform rational B‐splines), but allows pairing it with an approximation space, which is more suitable/flexible for analysis, for e...

Summary We introduce a coupled finite and boundary element formulation for acoustic scattering analysis over thin shell structures. A triangular Loop subdivision surface discretisation is used for both geometry and analysis fields. The Kirchhoff-Love shell equation is discretised with the finite element method and the Helmholtz equation for the acoustic field with the boundary element method. The use of the boundary element formulation allows the elegant handling of infinite domains and preclude...

Abstract null null To improve the performance of the low-order linear triangular element for solving transient wave propagation problems, this paper presents a novel enriched finite element method (EFEM) for wave analysis. The original linear nodal shape functions are enriched by using the additional interpolation cover functions over patches of elements. To effectively solve the wave problems, the used interpolation cover function is constructed by using the Lagrangian functions plus the harmon...

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...

Compared with continuous elements, discontinuous elements advance in processing the discontinuity of physical variables at corner points and discretized models with complex boundaries. However, the computational accuracy of discontinuous elements is sensitive to the positions of element nodes. To reduce the side effect of the node position on the results, this paper proposes employing partially discontinuous elements to compute the time-domain boundary integral equation of 3D elastodynamics. Usi...

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...
