A new optimization-based mesh correction method with volume and convexity constraints.

News Article, April 1, 2016 • Mesh motion is at the core of many numerical methods for time dependent flow and structure problems.  Examples include Lagrangian hydrodynamics methods, in which the mesh evolves with time in order to track deformations of the problem domain, and the related Arbitrary Lagrangian-Eulerian methods, which incorporate a mesh rezoning step...
For a divergence free velocity field, superimposition of the mesh obtained with “exact” movement (cells are shaded with different shades of grey) and the mesh obtained without volume correction (Figure 1) and the one with volume correction (Figure 2); the latter is in much closer agreement with the exact mesh than the uncorrected mesh.

A new, optimization-based coupling strategy for nonlocal and local diffusion models

News Article, April 1, 2016 • The use of nonlocal models in science and engineering applications has been steadily increasing over the past decade. The ability of nonlocal theories to accurately capture effects that are difficult or impossible to represent by local partial differential equation (PDE) models motivates and drives the interest in a wide range...
Simulation of a bar containing a discontinuity. The discontinuity extends vertically from the top of the bar halfway through the height of the bar. Dirichlet boundary conditions are applied to the ends of the bar (local domain), circumventing the need to prescribe volume constraints in the nonlocal domain.

A new, optimization-based coupling strategy for nonlocal and local diffusion models

News Article, December 1, 2015 • The use of nonlocal models in science and engineering applications has been steadily increasing over the past decade. The ability of nonlocal theories to accurately capture effects that are difficult or impossible to represent by local partial differential equation (PDE) models motivates and drives the interest in a wide range...
