报告题目 1: The Scaled Boundary Finite-Element Method for Dynamic Analysis
时   间 :2020年12月12日(周六)13:00-14:00

The scaled boundary finite element has been developed into a general-purpose numerical method. In this method, an element is generated by scaling its boundary and the element solution is obtained semi-analytically. In comparison with standard finite element technology, this approach allows the construction of elements of more complex shapes such as polygons and polyhedrons. The semi-analytical formulation provides an accurate and efficient way for the modelling of problems involving unbounded media and singularities.
This presentation will focus on the theory and application of the scaled boundary finite element method for dynamic analysis of bounded and unbounded domains. When applied to fracture mechanics problems, the stress intensity factors and the T-stress are extracted directly from their definitions without requiring an asymptotic expansion and local mesh refinement.  When applied to an unbounded domain, a high-order transmitting boundary is constructed with frequency-independent high-order static stiffness and damping matrices. Standard methods in classical structural dynamics can be applied to evaluate the response in the frequency and time domains.

The applications of transient dynamic analyses include impact, crash test, and wave propagation simulations. Due to the numerically highly demanding nature of these problems, efficient automatic mesh generators and time stepping schemes are required. To this end, a parallel explicit solver exploiting the advantages of balanced octree meshes is introduced. To avoid the hanging nodes problem encountered in standard finite element analysis (FEA), the scaled boundary finite element method (SBFEM) is deployed as a spatial discretization scheme. Consequently, arbitrarily shaped star-convex polyhedral elements are straightforwardly generated. Considering the scaling and transformation of octree cells, the stiffness and mass matrices of a limited number of unique cell patterns are pre-computed. A mass lumping technique yields a well-conditioned diagonal mass matrix. This enables us to leverage the advantages of explicit time integrator, i.e., it is possible to efficiently compute the nodal displacements without the need for solving a system of linear equations. We implement the proposed scheme together with a central difference method (CDM) in a distributed computing environment. The performance of our parallel explicit solver is evaluated by means of several numerical benchmark examples, including complex geometries and various practical applications. A significant speedup is observed for these examples with up to 1 billion of degrees of freedom and running on up to 16,384 computing cores.
