    A Simulation App based on reduced order modeling for manufacturing optimization of composite outlet guide vanes

    Composites manufacturing processes usually involve multiscale models in both space and time, highly non-linear and anisotropic behaviors, strongly coupled multiphysics and complex geometries. In this framework...

    Reduced order modeling for transient simulation of power systems using trajectory piece-wise linear approximation

    This paper concerns the application of reduced order modeling techniques to power grid simulation. Swing dynamics is a complex non-linear phenomenon due to which model order reduction of these problems is intr...

    Coupled domain decomposition–proper orthogonal decomposition methods for the simulation of quasi-brittle fracture processes

    In this paper, we discuss a strategy to reduce the computational costs of the simulation of dynamic fracture processes in quasi-brittle materials, based on a combination of domain decomposition (DD) and model ...

    Parameter estimation via conditional expectation: a Bayesian inversion

    When a mathematical or computational model is used to analyse some system, it is usual that some parameters resp. functions or fields in the model are not known, and hence uncertain. These parametric quantitie...

    Vademecum-based approach to multi-scale topological material design

    The work deals on computational design of structural materials by resorting to computational homogenization and topological optimization techniques. The goal is then to minimize the structural (macro-scale) co...

    Synergies between the constitutive relation error concept and PGD model reduction for simplified V&V procedures

    The paper deals with the constitutive relation error (CRE) concept which has been widely used over the last 40 years for verification and validation of computational mechanics models. It more specifically focu...

    Toward 4D mechanical correlation

    The goal of the present study is to illustrate the full integration of sensor and imaging data into numerical procedures for the purpose of identification of constitutive laws and their validation. The feasibi...

    On the computation of plate assemblies using realistic 3D joint model: a non-intrusive approach

    Most large engineering structures are described as assemblies of plates and shells and they are computed as such using adhoc Finite Element packages. In fact their computation in 3D would be much too costly. In t...

    On the issue that Finite Element discretizations violate, nodally, Clausius’s postulate of the second law of thermodynamics

    Discretization processes leading to numerical schemes sometimes produce undesirable effects. One potentially serious problem is that a discretization may produce the loss of validity of some of the physical pr...
