Joint Materials/Solid Mechanics Seminar

Monday, February 22, 2016 5:00pm - 6:00pm

“A New Finite Element Formulation for Modeling Liquid Shells and Its Application to Cell Membranes” Dr. Roger Sauer, RWTH Aachen University Abstract: This work presents a new finite element (FE) formulation for liquid shells that is constructed from a C1-continuous NURBS-based surface description. Both displacement-based and mixed FE formulations are considered. The latter is needed for area-incompressible material behavior, where penalty-type regularizations can lead to misleading results.
