Fast isogeometric solvers for explicit dynamics

In finite element analysis, solving time-dependent partial differential equations with explicit time marching schemes requires repeatedly applying the inverse of the mass matrix. For mass matrices that can be expressed as tensor products of lower dimensional matrices, we present a direct method that has linear computational complexity, i.e., O(N), where N is the total number of degrees of freedom in the system. We refer to these matrices as separable matrices. For non-separable mass matrices, we present a preconditioned conjugate gradient method with carefully designed preconditioners as an alternative. We demonstrate that these preconditioners, which are easy to construct and cheap to apply (O(N)), can deliver significant convergence acceleration. The performances of these preconditioners are independent of the polynomial order (p independence) and mesh resolution (h independence) for maximum continuity B-splines, as verified by various numerical tests. © 2014 Elsevier B.V.

Reducing the dimensionality of hyperspectral remotely sensed data with applications for maximum likelihood image classificationSantich, Norman Ty (2007)As well as the many benefits associated with the evolution of multispectral sensors into hyperspectral sensors there is also a considerable increase in storage space and the computational load to process the data. ...
Experimental study on unsaturated direct shear and California bearing ratio tests with suction monitoring on sand-kaolin clay mixturesPurwana, Yusep Muslih (2013)The laboratory study on unsaturated soil may comprise the study of devices or apparatus used and the study of the behaviour of soil itself. In both, suction is the main issue of the study’s concern. One of the common ...
