Abstract
Abstract null null This paper aims to develop a variable-node multiscale extended finite element method (V-XFEM) for dynamic fracture analysis of the linearly uncoupled and coupled physical phenomena in a compact formula. The general governing equations for the linearly uncoupled and coupled physical phenomena are presented in a compact form. The local mesh refinement technique for modeling cracks is used to improve the accuracy and efficiency, in which variable-node elements without modifying the system matrix or impose additional boundary conditions are taken to connect/link different scale elements. In addition, the time-dependent equations are solved by the unconditionally stable implicit Newmark time integration method, and the dynamic intensity factors (DIFs) are derived from the domain forms of the interaction integrals. Numerical results of the linearly elastic and piezoelectric problems show that V-XFEM is an efficient numerical approach to simulate the dynamic fracture problems of the linearly uncoupled and coupled physical phenomena.

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 polynomi...

Abstract We present an efficient computational approach composed of forward and inverse analyses that can neatly capture multiple flaw clusters with high accuracy yet low computational effort. The inverse analysis consists of three continuous steps with distinct targets. Firstly, a combination of improved discrete artificial bee colony (IDABC) algorithm and hierarchical clustering analysis (HCA) is applied to seize sub-domains that contain flaw clusters with a conservative number of sensors.

Abstract In this paper, we present a Matlab object-oriented implementation of the variable-node extended finite element method (XFEM), which is enhanced by local mesh refinement technique, for modeling strong and weak discontinuities such as cracks, inclusions, and voids. An easy-to-use local mesh refinement scheme is thus proposed, in which the variable-node elements play an important role as they are integrated into the model for the purpose of connecting/linking different scale meshes. For ef...

Abstract We present a Matlab object-oriented implementation of an efficient variable-node extended finite element method (XFEM) for multiple crack growth simulation in brittle materials. To enhance the accuracy of the present method, not only the local mesh refinement strategy is used, but also the variable-node elements are adopted to directly link different scale elements, saving the computational cost. In order to efficiently conduct coalescence detection, a modification is also presented. A ...

Abstract Cracks and multiple voids resulting from manufacturing processes interact with each other and severely affect the fracture phenomenon of piezoelectric components. These geometrical discontinuities degrade the service performance and lower the reliability of the piezoelectric devices. Therefore, the present work predicts fatigue-cracking behavior of piezo-electric structures in existence of multiple geometrical discontinuities under cyclic thermal-electrical-mechanical loads using extend...

Abstract A new approach combining the eXtended Finite Element Method (X-FEM) and automatic Adaptive Mesh Refinement (AMR) is presented taking advantage of both methods. The X-FEM, developed over the past two decades by a large community, have proven its efficiency to handle evolving discontinuities in a variety of fracture analysis. Since this method enables to describe the crack and its propagation independently of the mesh of the structure, a simple hierarchical mesh refinement procedure can b...

Abstract During the latest 20 years, the extended finite element method (XFEM) has been gradually used to investigate the crack growth behaviors of different materials in combination with various mechanics models and became the most popular computational tool in analyzing crack problems. This paper classifies three typical theoretical frameworks of the XFEM, namely the linear elastic fracture mechanics, the cohesive zone model and the elastic-plastic fracture mechanics based XFEM. A review of br...

By introducing the shape functions of virtual node polygonal (VP) elements into the standard extended finite element method (XFEM), a conforming elemental mesh can be created for the cracking process. Moreover, an adaptively refined meshing with the quadtree structure only at a growing crack tip is proposed without inserting hanging nodes into the transition region. A novel dynamic crack growth method termed as VP-XFEM is thus formulated in the framework of fracture mechanics. To verify the newl...

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...

Abstract Based on the concept of the hoop field intensity factors of an initial crack prior to any kink, an apparent hoop mechanical (strain) energy release rate (MERR) is defined to approximate the MERR of a piezoelectric crack with an infinitesimal kink at any arbitrary angle. The validity and the efficiency of the simplified approximation are examined by numerical examples using the boundary element method (BEM). The generalized crack-opening-displacements or displacement jumps are computed b...
