Abstract We present in this paper a novel and efficient computational approach in terms of triangular extended stochastic finite element method (T-XSFEM) for simulation of random void problems. The present T-XSFEM is further enhanced by local mesh refinement with the aid of variable-node elements to couple/link different mesh-scales, increasing the efficiency of the developed approach and saving the computational cost. The degrees of freedom are approximated with a truncated generalized polynomial chaos (GPC). The present work depends on the extension of extended finite element method (XFEM) to the stochastic context, containing implicit expression of voids through the random level set functions. A new partition technique is defined to divide the random domain for integration by using a priori knowledge of the void shape function, which can further reduce the computational time. To show the effectiveness and accuracy of the developed approach, numerical experiments are studied and computed results are compared with existing reference solutions.

Abstract This paper aims at investigating fracture behavior of single and multiple cracks in two-dimensional solids by an adaptive extended isogeometric analysis (XIGA) based on locally refined (LR) B-splines. The adaptive XIGA is capable of modeling cracks without considering the location of crack faces due to the local enrichment technique based on partition-of-unity concept. The XIGA approximation is locally enriched by Heaviside function and crack tip enrichment functions to capture the disc...

Abstract One widely used and computationally efficient method for uncertainty quantification using spectral stochastic finite element is the stochastic Galerkin method. Here the solution is represented in polynomial chaos expansion, and the residual of the discretized governing equation is projected on the polynomial chaos bases. This results in a system of deterministic algebraic equations with the polynomials chaos coefficients as unknown. However, one impediment for its large scale applicatio...

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 In this paper, a new effective approach based on conservative integral approach associated with extended finite element method (XFEM) is developed for evaluating stress intensity factors (SIFs) of bi-material V-notched structures. The XFEM model for bi-material V-notches is established, which owns various features: (a) jump enrichment functions are taken for describing the intersection of notch-faces; (b) eight (real eigenvalue) or sixteen (complex eigenvalue) branch functions are emplo...

Abstract The present paper is concerned with numerical simulation of two-dimensional (2-D) cracks and material interfaces by an effective computational approach. A local mesh refinement in terms of extended finite element method is thus described. The new approach combines a posteriori error estimation algorithm, a local non-conformal mesh connection strategy, and local enrichment. An error estimator based on recovery strain for adaptivity is used; allowing the mesh where it is needed is subsequ...

The uncertainty related to the spatially varying random property requires to be described as a random field, which in definition consists of an infinite number of random variables that are attached to each point of a continuous domain of the random field. The utility of Karhunen–Loeve expansion allows to represent the random field as the summation of a series of deterministic functions and random variables. By this way, the random field is represented by using a finite number of random variables...

Abstract A novel local mesh refinement approach for fracture analysis of three-dimensional (3-D) linear elastic solids is developed, considering both 3-D straight and curved planar cracks. The present local mesh refinement formulation is a combination of the extended finite element method (XFEM), variable-node hexahedron elements, and a posteriori error indicator. Our 3-D formulation using hexahedron elements rigorously embraces a posteriori error estimation scheme, a structural coupling scale-m...

Abstract Decades of study on the fatigue of welded joints have shown that fatigue depends on many parameters such as initial defects, residual stresses and random loads, which are difficult for experiments to cover comprehensively, thus leading to scattered test results. Therefore, studies on uncertainties in the process of fatigue crack growth are required, especially for large-scale structures like orthotropic steel decks (OSDs). This paper presents an attempt to use the eXtended Finite Elemen...

This paper is concerned with the modeling of heterogeneous materials with uncertain inclusion geometry. The eXtended stochastic finite element method (X-SFEM) is a recently proposed approach for modeling stochastic partial differential equations defined on random domains. The X-SFEM combines the deterministic eXtended finite element method (XFEM) with a polynomial chaos expansion (PCE) in the stochastic domain. The X-SFEM has been studied for random inclusion problems with a $C^0C0-continuous...

Abstract In this work, two fracture modelling methods i.e., extended FEM (XFEM) and localizing gradient damage method (LGDM), are combined to get the advantages of both methods while eliminating their limitations. The LGDM is a micromechanics-based method that avoids spurious damage growth and incorrect damage initiation observed in conventional gradient damage method (CGDM). However, in the LGDM, a cracked/discontinuous domain is not fully realized due to its continuous nature, even at high dam...

Abstract In this paper, we present a geometrically nonlinear formulation for a nine-node shell finite element and demonstrate its performance. The total Lagrangian formulation is utilized to allow for large displacements and large rotations. The mixed interpolation of tensorial components (MITC) technique is applied to effectively reduce the membrane and shear locking phenomena without refining mesh, introducing additional nodes, and using reduced integrations. Many-core accelerators with GPU-co...

Abstract An analytical stochastic dynamic stiffness formulation is developed for the dynamic analysis of damped membrane structures with parametric uncertainties. First, the exact general solution of a biaxially taut membrane in the frequency domain is derived, which is used as the frequency-dependent shape function. Both the material properties and the tension fields of the membrane are modelled as 2D random fields with an exponential autocorrelation function in both x and y directions. Then, t...

Abstract The stability of functionally graded porous plates with graphene platelets reinforcement (FGP-GPLs) is investigated in this paper. Combining with a new metamodeling approach, namely the Kriging enhanced Neural Network, a stochastic isogeometric analysis (SIGA) framework is proposed for assessing the structural stability. The uncertainties of material properties of both FGP matrix and graphene platelets are considered in the form of random fields and variables. Karhunen-Loeve expansion b...
