Abstract
Abstract This work is devoted to numerical investigation for buckling of functionally graded plates (FGPs) with internal holes using an efficient adaptive isogeometric analysis (IGA). The locally refined (LR) B-splines, which possess the local refinement ability, are used as basis functions in IGA. Kinematics of plate structures are derived using the simple quasi-3D hyperbolic shear deformation theory (S-Q3HSDT), which has few unknowns, free from shear locking, and suitable for considering the shear deformation and thickness-stretching effect. The high-order continuity of LR B-splines directly meets the requirement of C 1 -continuity in the S-Q3HSDT. Internal holes are described by the level set method, and the physical mesh is independent of the hole boundaries. Local refinement is guided by a posterior error estimation based on strain recovery of the first buckling mode and the structural mesh refinement strategy. Several numerical examples considering different types of cutouts are studied, and the computed results are compared with reference solutions available in the literature to show the accuracy and performance of the developed method. The present method automatically identifies the required local refinement zones, improves the computational accuracy at a low cost, possesses high convergence speed, and avoids the usage of trimmed surfaces in the analysis. The effects of boundary condition, hole shape, hole size, load direction, and multiple holes on the buckling behavior of FGPs are investigated in detail.

Abstract In the design of functionally graded materials, bi-directional design offers greater design freedom than the typical single-direction approach. This paper studies the shape and size design of variable-thickness bi-directional functionally graded plates (2D-FGPs) with multi-objective optimization. A method integrating generalized iso-geometrical analysis (GIGA) and an improved multi-objective particle swarm optimization algorithm (IMOPSO) is proposed, with numerous technical advantages. ...

Abstract This paper presents an error-controlled adaptive extended isogeometric analysis (XIGA) for assessment of fracture behavior for through-cracked Mindlin-Reissner plates. The locally refined (LR) B-splines that facilitate the local refinement are used as the basis functions for the approximations, while the kinematics of plates are described in terms of the Mindlin-Reissner plate theory. Appropriate enrichment functions for cracked plates are incorporated into the formulation to represent ...

Abstract We present in this paper an efficient computational approach based on an adaptive extended isogeometric analysis (XIGA) for simulation of arbitrary holes in orthotropic materials. The interfaces of holes are described by multiple level set functions so that the developed XIGA can capture the hole geometry without considering its interfaces. The approach is further enhanced by using the locally refined (LR) B-spline basis functions, which dominate over B-spline or non-uniform rational B-...

It might seem amazing: Cutting a hole in a plate can increase the buckling strength! It is the objective of this paper to present and clarify this astounding phenomenon. In lightweight design, typically thin-walled structures are used. Therefore, buckling must be considered as a possible failure mode. One might assume that removing material, and thus, reducing stiffness must result in a reduction of the buckling strength. However, perhaps surprisingly, it can be shown that introduction of cutout...

Abstract A two-directional functionally graded microbeam model is developed for natural frequency and mechanical bending analysis by using NURBS–based isogeometric analysis combined with a non-classical quasi-3D beam theory (NCQ3BT). Material parameters of microbeam continuously and smoothly change along thickness and axial directions. The small size effects are seized with the modified couple stress theory. In the NCQ3BT, both normal and shear deformations are considered without the need for th...

Abstract This paper presents a novel methodology of local adaptivity for the frequency-domain analysis of the vibrations of Reissner–Mindlin plates. The adaptive discretization is based on the recently developed Geometry Independent Field approximaTion (GIFT) framework, which may be seen as a generalization of the Iso-Geometric Analysis (IGA). Within the GIFT framework, we describe the geometry of the structure exactly with NURBS (Non-Uniform Rational B-Splines), whilst independently employing P...

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 order to deeply study the static and dynamic behavior of hemispherical convex-concave composite plate (HCCP) under different conditions and avoid structural damage, the equivalent model of HCCP was developed based on variational asymptotic method. The constitutive modeling of unit cell was carried out to obtain the constitutive relations that can be used as effective plate properties for the 2-D equivalent plate model (2D-EPM). The accuracy of the equivalent model and the obtained eq...

Abstract null null This study presents an upgraded Ritz method capable of providing solutions to thin polygonal plates of regular and irregular shapes with various boundary conditions. The method presented herein is called the Boundary-Type Ritz (BTR) Method and it circumvents the complexity of the involved domains by transforming the encountered integrals to other forms that need to be evaluated only at corners. This leads to very fast computations with full preservation of the accuracy. The di...

This paper is devoted to numerical investigations on mechanical behavior of cracked composite functionally graded (FG) plates. We thus develop an efficient adaptive approach in terms of the extended isogeometric analysis (XIGA) enhanced by locally refined non-uniform rational B-spline (LR NURBS) for natural frequency and buckling analysis of cracked FG Mindlin–Reissner plates. In this setting, the crack geometries, which are described by the level sets, are independent of the computational mesh;...
