    In this paper, an application of arbitrary Lagrangian-Eulerian method is presented in plasticity behavior of pressure-sensitive material, with special reference to large deformation analysis of powder compaction process. In ALE technique, the convective term is used to reflect the relative motion between the mesh and the material. The convection term is neglected in the material phase, which is identical to a time-step in a standard Lagrangian analysis. The stresses and plastic internal variables are converted to account the relative mesh-material motion in the convection phase. The ALE formulation is then performed within the framework of a three-invariant cap plasticity model in order to... 

    Application of rkpm in numerical simulation of powder forming processes using cap plasticity model

    , Article 8th International Conference on Computational Plasticity: Fundamentals and Applications, COMPLAS VIII, Barcelona, 5 September 2005 through 7 September 2005 ; Issue PART 2 , 2005 , Pages 966-969 ; 849599979X (ISBN); 9788495999795 (ISBN) Samimi, M ; Khoei, A. R ; Sharif University of Technology
    In this paper, an application of the Reproducing Kernel Particle Method is presented in numerical simulation of powder forming processes using a cap plasticity model. A double-surface cap plasticity is developed within the framework of large deformation analysis in order to predict the non-uniform relative density distribution during powder die pressing. The RKPM technique is employed in the analysis of 2D compaction simulation. Numerical examples are presented to illustrate the applicability of the algorithm in modelling of powder forming processes  

    Tool-tissue force estimation in laparoscopic surgery using geometric features

    This paper introduces three geometric features, from deformed shape of a soft tissue, which demonstrate good correlation with probing force and maximum local stress. Using FEM simulation, 2D and 3D model of an in vivo porcine liver was built for different probing tasks. Maximum deformation angle, maximum deformation depth and width of displacement constraint of the reconstructed shape of the deformed body were calculated. Two neural networks were trained from these features and the calculated interaction forces. The features are shown to have high potential to provide force estimation either for haptic devices or to assess the damage to the tissue in large deformations of up to 40%  

    Rate-dependent dynamic ALE analysis of finite deformation of elasto-viscoplastic solids

    , Article Materials and Design ; Volume 30, Issue 8 , 2009 , Pages 2995-3004 ; 02641275 (ISSN) Tadi Beni, Y ; Movahhedy, M. R ; Farrahi, G. H ; Sharif University of Technology
    In this paper, formulation and implementation of finite element analysis within an Arbitrary Lagrangian Eulerian (ALE) description is presented for large deformation analysis of elasto-viscoplastic materials. The rate effects are included using a consistent procedure. An implicit algorithm with backward Euler integration scheme is used to integrate the elasto-viscoplastic constitutive equations. Also, the closed form of the consistent tangent operator is derived using the momentum balance equation to reduce the computation time. A fully coupled ALE procedure is used which includes dynamic effects. The proposed algorithm is implemented in an ALE code and its effectiveness and efficiency is... 

    Hierarchical multiscale modeling of nanotube-reinforced polymer composites

    , Article International Journal for Multiscale Computational Engineering ; Volume 7, Issue 5 , 2009 , Pages 395-408 ; 15431649 (ISSN) Ghanbari, J ; Naghdabad, R ; Sharif University of Technology
    A finite element-based hierarchical multiscale modeling scheme is presented and used for the analysis of nanotube-reinforced polymer composites. The scheme presented here consists of micro- and macroscale boundary value problems linked together using a computational homogenization scheme. Using the presented hierarchical multiscale scheme, we have studied nanotube-reinforced polymer composites, and the elastic properties are determined. Using different representative volume elements (RVEs) representing different volume fractions of aligned nanotubes, the effect of the nanotube volume fraction and the existence of an interphase layer on the effective elastic modulus of the nanocomposite are...
