The nine-node element has 21 degrees of freedom and is of arbitrary quadrilateral shape with curved edges. In this study, the analysis methodology using T-splines is proposed. The proposed approach is also applied to simulate the crack propagation under a mixed-mode condition. Each B++ spline basis function is a linear combination of the trivariate B-spline basis functions of the background grid. In the present study, an analysis framework using T-splines is proposed. The main benefit of the proposed method is that no additional modeling for the analysis of the trimmed surface is necessary.
Two Lagrangian formulations Total Lagrangian and Updated Lagrangian have been adopted in the static analysis of nonlinear behaviour of the cable structures. As a prototypical problem on non trivial geometries, we consider the Laplace--Beltrami and Allen--Cahn equations on a surface. The free vibration analysis of general plates by a newly developed nine-node spline plate element is presented. T-splines support many valuable operations within a consistent framework, such as local refinement, and the merging of several B-spline surfaces that have different knot vectors into a single gap-free model. In particular, the effects of element geometry such as aspect ratio, skewness, shape of distortion, curved boundary and irregularity of mesh are illustrated. The non-uniform rational basis spline representation of the mid-surface allows us to maintain the exact geometry representation characteristic of the isogeometric approach. T-splines are recently proposed mathematical tools for geometric modeling, which are generalizations of B-splines.
Using T-splines, patches with unmatched boundaries can be combined easily without special technique. For the Isogeometric analysis, the construction of the stiffness matrix based on the spline basis function is presented. Furthermore, 3D B++ splines can retain the features of the B-rep models, such as sharp points, sharp edges, and holes. This paper presents a generalization of non-uniform B-spline surfaces called T-splines. After recalling the necessary basics on differential geometry and the shell governing equations, we show that the standard approach of expressing the equilibrium equations in terms of the primal variables is not a suitable way for shells due to the complexity of the underlying equations.
In a design of industrial product, its shape that influences the rigidity and vibratory characteristics as well as productivity is determined by trial-and-error-based experimentation or simulation. Two-dimensional linear elastic and dynamic problems will be solved by employing the proposed T-spline finite element method, and the effectiveness of the current analysis methodology will be verified. Some numerical examples are presented to illustrate the effectiveness of the current analysis framework. For this, trimmed elements are searched through using a projection scheme. Compared to the other method, the obtained results in benchmark examples indicate the capability and accuracy of the presented approach.
Part three Kyle Houchens will discuss and demo strategy to add final details to the car model, like spoilers, mirrors, vents, etc. The basis functions of the trivariate B++ spline solid patch satisfy the Kro- necker delta property, which implies that we can strongly impose Dirichlet boundary conditions on B-Rep models without needing to resort to Nitsche methods or Mortar methods. The interpolatory property of Lagrange polynomials gives a natural choice of fiber vectors, thus removing the difficulties in the definition of directors that is seen in most isogeometric Reissner—Mindlin shell elements. These test show that locking effects can be conveniently avoided by using high polynomial degrees.

The paper focuses on T-splines of degree three, which are C2 in the absence of multiple knots. The accuracy of this approach is demonstrated by the results for a number of plates and shells. The proposed shell formulation is verified through various benchmarking problems. Multiple-trimming-curve problems which are difficult to analyze with conventional Isogeometric analysis are easily treated with the proposed method. Therefore, we do not need to modify the basis functions of the background mesh.
In this study, the simple mapping scheme, in which every control point is mapped into one geometric point on the surface, is employed to eliminate the limitations. An illuminating example is given. Acantha Express Utility For Pc can easily merge small data and t splines 3. This paper presents an algorithm for eliminating such superfluous control points, producing a T-spline. T-spline control grids permit T-junctions, so lines of control points need not traverse the entire control grid. An accompanying study on the computational time also confirms that high polynomial degrees are preferable in terms of computational efficiency.
Meanwhile, the interface region between the two sub-domains is represented by coupled shape functions. It employs B-spline shape functions to form the two-dimensional displacement function and biquadratic Lagrangian functions for geometric interpolation. We conclude that the potential for the k-method is high, but smoothness is an issue that is not well understood due to the historical dominance of C0-continuous finite elements and therefore further studies are warranted. The specific collocation points in the boundary of the B-Rep model and the background mesh are integrated seamlessly. Comparisons with other methods are also presented; it is shown that the precision is good. We also develop a local refinement strategy that we utilize in one of the shell analyses.
