This research provides an algorithm to analyse structures composed of solids that are directly extracted from Computer Aided Design (CAD) environment. The analysis assumes linear elastic material and small displacements, being the result the displace...

Quasi-isotropic initial triangulation of NURBS surfaces (2020)
Journal Article
Adán, D. H., & Cardoso, R. (in press). Quasi-isotropic initial triangulation of NURBS surfaces. European Journal of Computational Mechanics,

Isotropic triangulation of NURBS surfaces provides high quality triangular meshes, where all triangles are equilateral. This isotropy increases representation quality and analysis accuracy. We introduce a new algorithm to generate quasi-isotropic tri... Read More about Quasi-isotropic initial triangulation of NURBS surfaces.

Three-dimensional solid structures simulation on isogeometric b-rep analysis (2018)
Conference Proceeding
Herrero Adan, D. (2018). Three-dimensional solid structures simulation on isogeometric b-rep analysis

Isogeometric analysis (IGA) was devised to circumvent meshing step in the design process because it uses same basis functions as CAD packages: non-uniform rational B-splines (NURBS). That NURBS information is exchangeable via Initial Graphics Exchang... Read More about Three-dimensional solid structures simulation on isogeometric b-rep analysis.

Isogeometric analysis for modelling damage and fracture (2017)
Conference Proceeding
Herrero Adan, D., Cardoso, R., Adetoro, O., & Amali, R. (2017). Isogeometric analysis for modelling damage and fracture

Isogeometric Analysis can be applied to model damage and crack initiation and propagation. To predict the cracking behaviour the stress field is used. The main advantage in IGA is the high inter-elemental continuity of the displacement field, which l... Read More about Isogeometric analysis for modelling damage and fracture.
