    A 3D Frictionless Contact Domain Method for Large Deformation Problems

    S. Hartmann1, R. Weyler2, J. Oliver1, J.C. Cante2, J.A. Hernández1

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.55, No.3, pp. 211-270, 2010, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2010.055.211

    Abstract This work describes a three-dimensional contact domain method for large deformation frictionless contact problems. Theoretical basis and numerical aspects of this specific contact method are given in [Oliver, Hartmann, Cante, Weyler and Hernández (2009)] and [Hartmann, Oliver, Weyler, Cante and Hernández (2009)] for two-dimensional, large deformation frictional contact problems. In this method, in contrast to many other contact formulations, the necessary contact constraints are formulated on a so-called contact domain, which can be interpreted as a fictive intermediate region connecting the potential contact surfaces of the deformable bodies. This contact domain has the same dimension More >

    Analysis of Wrinkling Behavior of Anisotropic Membrane

    K. Woo1, H. Igawa2, C.H. Jenkins3

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.6, No.4, pp. 397-408, 2004, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2004.006.397

    Abstract This paper presents the development and evaluation of a wrinkling analysis procedure for anisotropic membranes. The procedure is based on a penalty-parameter modified material model and a non-linear root finding to simulate the uni-axial stress state. The procedure was implemented in the ABAQUS finite element code as a user subroutine, and then applied to annular and square membranes. The wrinkle problems were also solved by shell element post-buckling analysis and the results were compared. The effect of anisotropy and unsymmetric loading on the wrinkling behavior was investigated. More >
