Integration of localized surface geometry in fully parameterized ANCF finite elements
(Elsevier B.V., 2017-01-01)
This paper introduces a new method for the integration of localized surface geometry with fully parameterized absolute nodal coordinate formulation (ANCF) finite elements. In this investigation, ANCF finite elements are ...
Development of ANCF tetrahedral finite elements for the nonlinear dynamics of flexible structures
(Springer Verlag, 2017-09)
In this paper, methods for developing isoparametric tetrahedral finite elements (FE) based on the absolute nodal coordinate formulation (ANCF) are presented. The proposed ANCF tetrahedral elements have twelve coordinates ...
INTEGRATION OF GEOMETRY AND ANALYSIS FOR THE STUDY OF LIQUID SLOSHING IN RAILROAD VEHICLE DYNAMICS
(SAGE Publications, 2017-03)
A new continuum-based liquid sloshing approach that accounts for the effect of complex fluid and tank-car geometry on railroad vehicle dynamics is developed in this investigation. A unified geometry/analysis mesh is used ...
