Impact identification using nonlinear dimensionality reduction and supervised learning

Smart Materials and Structures Volume 28, Issue 11, 1 October 2019, Pages 115005 V. Meruane, C. Espinoza, E. Lopez Droguett, A. Ortiz-Bernardin Abstract Real-time monitoring systems that can automatically locate and identify impacts as they occur have become increasingly attractive for ensuring safety and preventing catastrophic accidents in aerospace structures. In most cases, a set…

Veamy: an extensible object-oriented C++ library for the virtual element method

Numerical Algorithms In press. Alejandro Ortiz-Bernardin, Catalina Alvarez, Nancy Hitschfeld-Kahler, Alessandro Russo, Rodrigo Silva-Valenzuela, Edgardo Olate-Sanzana. Abstract This paper summarizes the development of Veamy, an object-oriented C++ library for the virtual element method (VEM) on general polygonal meshes, whose modular design is focused on its extensibility. The linear elastostatic and Poisson problems in two dimensions have…

On the behaviour of spherical inclusions in a cylinder under tension loads

Ingenius Vol. 19, 2018, pp. 69-78 S. Montero, R. Bustamante, A. Ortiz-Bernardin Abstract In the present paper the behaviour of a hyperelastic body is studied, considering the presence of one, two and more spherical inclusions, under the effect of an external tension load. The inclusions are modelled as nonlinear elastic bodies that undergo small strains….
