A monolithic approach to fluid-structure interactions based on the space-time finite element method (STFEM) is presented. The method is applied to the investigation of stress states in silos filled with granular material during discharge. The thin-walled siloshell is modeled in a continuum approach as elastic solid material, whereas the flowing granular material is described by an enhanced viscoplastic non-Newtonian fluid model. The weak forms of the governing equations are discretized by STFEM for both solid and fluid domain. To adapt the matching mesh nodes of the fluid domain to the structural deformations, a mesh-moving scheme using a neo-Hookean pseudo-solid is applied. The finite element approximation of non-smooth solution characteristics is enhanced by the extended finite element method (XFEM). The proposed methodology is applied to the 4D (space-time) investigation of deformation-dependent loading conditions during silo discharge. [less ▲]

Selected topographies on earth are threatened by sudden landslides on natural or artificial hillsides. Dur- ing landslides natural granular materials exhibit phase transitions from solid-like to fluid-like behavior [1]. In order to describe such materials interacting with surrounding fluids a material formulation allow- ing a switch from solid- to fluid-like state is developed. The solid-like state of the granular is modeled as compressible elastic material in an eulerian framework, while the surrounding fluid is described by an incompressible newtonian fluid. Discretization of the balance equations is carried out with a stabilized space-time finite element method [2]. The domain of elastic material utilizes mixed-hybrid space-time elements while for the surrounding fluid standard velocity-pressure elements [3] are used. Interaction of both continua is described with an interface-coupled formulation where the level-set technique [4] is employed for the interface motion. The challenge of the introduced model is the coupling of fields with discontinuous state variables as well as fieldwise different state variables. Available coupling techniques in the context of the extended finite element method and based on localized mixed hybrid formulations [5] will be discussed and evaluated numerically by means of selected 2D examples.

An implicit time integration meshfree collocation method for solving linear and nonlinear ordinary differential equations (ODEs) based on interpolating moving least squares technique, which uses singular weights for constructing ansatz functions, is presented. On an example of a system of equations for Foucault pendulum, the flexibility of the proposed approach is shown and the accuracy, convergence, and stability properties are investigated. In a nonlinear case, the method gives accurate results, which is demonstrated by the solution of Lorenz equations. The typical trajectory patterns, e.g. butterfly pattern, were observed and the properties of the method are compared to those of a higher-order time integration method. © 2011 World Scientific Publishing Company.

The paper addresses the numerical treatment of a specific class of fluid-structure interaction problems: flow-immersed thin structures undergoing considerable motion and deformation. The simultaneous solution procedure uses a mixed-hybrid velocity-based formulation of both fluid and structure discretized by a stabilized time-discontinuous space-time finite element method. The continuity at the interface is ensured by a localized mixed-hybrid interface method avoiding Lagrange multipliers and penalty approaches. The XFEM is utilized for enrichment of the approximation space of the fluid variables in order to represent non-smooth (discontinuous) solution features resulting from immersing a thin structure in a fluid. © 2010 Elsevier Ltd.

An innovative Space-Time Meshfree Collocation Method (STMCM) for solving systems of nonlinear ordinary and partial differential equations by a consistent discretization in both space and time is proposed as an alternative to established mesh-based methods. The STMCM belongs to the class of truly meshfree methods, i.e. the methods which do not have any underlying mesh, but work on a set of nodes only, without an a priori node-to-node connectivity. A regularization technique to overcome the singularity-by-construction and to compute all necessary derivatives of the kernel functions is presented. The method combines the simplicity and straightforwardness of the strong-form computational techniques with the advantages of meshfree methods over the classical ones, especially for coupled engineering problems involving moving interfaces. The key features of the proposed approach are: (i) no need to generate a mesh, (ii) simplified imposition of boundary conditions, (iii) no need to evaluate integral forms of governing equations, (iv) applicability to complex irregularly-shaped domains. The proposed STMCM is applied to linear and nonlinear ordinary and partial differential equations of different types and its accuracy and convergence properties are studied.

A novel space-time meshfree collocation method (STMCM) for solving systems of non-linear ordinary and partial differential equations by a consistent discretization in both space and time is proposed as an alternative to established mesh-based methods. The STMCM belongs to the class of truly meshfree methods, i.e. the methods that do not have any underlying mesh, but work on a set of nodes only without any a priori node-to-node connectivity. Instead, the neighbouring information is established on-the-fly. The STMCM is constructed using the Interpolating Moving Least-squares technique, which allows a simplified implementation of boundary conditions due to fulfillment of the Kronecker delta property by the kernel functions, which is not the case for the major part of other meshfree methods. The method is validated by several examples ranging from interpolation problems to the solution of PDEs, whereas the STMCM solutions are compared with either analytical or reference ones. © 2009 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.

The paper proposes an approach for the imposition of constraints along moving or fixed immersed interfaces in the context of the extended finite element method. An enriched approximation space enables consistent representation of strong and weak discontinuities in the solution fields along arbitrarily-shaped material interfaces using an unfitted background mesh. The use of Lagrange multipliers or penalty methods is circumvented by a localized mixed hybrid formulation of the model equations. In a defined region in the vicinity of the interface, the original problem is re-stated in its auxiliary formulation. The availability of the auxiliary variable enables the consideration of a variety of interface constraints in the weak form. The contribution discusses the weak imposition of Dirichlet- and Neumann-type interface conditions as well as continuity requirements not fulfilled a priori by the enriched approximation. The properties of the proposed approach applied to two-dimensional linear scalar- and vector-valued elliptic problems are investigated by studying the convergence behavior. © 2009 John Wiley & Sons,Ltd.

The extended finite element method (XFEM) is often used in applications that involve moving interfaces. Examples are the propagation of cracks or the movement of interfaces in two-phase problems. This work focuses on time integration in the XFEM. The performance of the discontinuous Galerkin method in time (space-time finite elements (FEs)) and time-stepping schemes are analyzed by convergence studies for different model problems. It is shown that space-time FE achieve optimal convergence rates. Special care is required for time stepping in the XFEM due to the time dependence of the enrichment functions. In each time step, the enrichment functions have to be evaluated at different time levels. This has important consequences in the quadrature used for the integration of the weak form. A time-stepping scheme that leads to optimal or only slightly sub-optimal convergence rates is systematically constructed in this work. © 2009 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd. [less ▲]

The focus of this work is the development of reduced models for engineering applications in complex bidirectional fluid-structure interaction. In the simultaneous solution procedure, velocity variables are used for both fluid and solid, and the whole set of model equations is discretized by a stabilized time-discontinuous space-time finite element method. Flexible structures are modeled using a three-dimensional continuum approach in a total Lagrangian setting considering large displacements and rotations. In the flow domain the incompressible Navier-Stokes equations describe the Newtonian fluid. A continuous finite element mesh is applied to the entire spatial domain, and the discretized model equations are assembled in a single set of algebraic equations, considering the two-field problem as a whole. The continuous fluid-structure mesh with identical orders of approximation for both solid and fluid in space and time automatically yields conservation of mass, momentum and energy at the fluid-structure interface. A mesh-moving scheme is used to adapt the nodal coordinates of the fluid space-time finite element mesh to the structural deformation. The computational approach for strongly coupled fluid-structure interaction is used to create suitable reduced models of generic nonlinear problems. Reduction is performed with monolithic projection-based space-time modes, ensuring strong coupling of fluid and structure in the reduced model. The contribution discusses results using proper orthogonal decomposition (POD) for determination of monolithic space-time modes in the reduction of fluid-structure systems. © 2009 Elsevier B.V.

A discretization method based on stabilized space–time finite elements is presented for the numerical analysis of three–fluid flows of immiscible and incompressible fluids. Signed distance functions are used to assign the material properties to each spatial point in the domain. The motion and the change in topology of fluid–fluid interfaces are implicitly described by the level–set method. Strong and weak discontinuities in the fields of the physical state variables are captured by locally enriched approximations based on the partition–of–unity concept. An interior penalty method enforces interfacial conservation of mass and momentum. (© 2008 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim) [less ▲]

The paper introduces a weighted residual-based approach for the numerical investigation of the interaction of fluid flow and thin flexible structures. The presented method enables one to treat strongly coupled systems involving large structural motion and deformation of multiple-flow-immersed solid objects. The fluid flow is described by the incompressible Navier-Stokes equations. The current configuration of the thin structure of linear elastic material with non-linear kinematics is mapped to the flow using the zero iso-contour of an updated level set function. The formulation of fluid, structure and coupling conditions uniformly uses velocities as unknowns. The integration of the weak form is performed on a space-time finite element discretization of the domain. Interfacial constraints of the multi-field problem are ensured by distributed Lagrange multipliers. The proposed formulation and discretization techniques lead to a monolithic algebraic system, well suited for strongly coupled fluid-structure systems. Embedding a thin structure into a flow results in non-smooth fields for the fluid. Based on the concept of the extended finite element method, the space-time approximations of fluid pressure and velocity are properly enriched to capture weakly and strongly discontinuous solutions. This leads to the present enriched space-time (EST) method. Numerical examples of fluid-structure interaction show the eligibility of the developed numerical approach in order to describe the behavior of such coupled systems. The test cases demonstrate the application of the proposed technique to problems where mesh moving strategies often fail. Copyright © 2007 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd. [less ▲]

Die Modellierung der elektroelastischen Struktur erfolgt mit der geometrisch nichtlinearen Elastizitätstheorie und der Maxwell–Faraday–Theorie der Elektrostatik. Die Windumströmung der Struktur ist als inkompressibles, Newton'sches Fluid mit den Navier–Stokes–Gleichungen beschrieben. Die Diskretisierung der gekoppelten Modellgleichungen beider Kontinua erfolgt mit finiten Raum–Zeit–Elementen.
