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….

A volume-averaged nodal projection method for the Reissner-Mindlin plate model

Computer Methods in Applied Mechanics and Engineering In press. A. Ortiz-Bernardin, Philip Köbrich, Jack S. Hale, Edgardo Olate-Sanzana, Stéphane P. A. Bordas, Sundararajan Natarajan. Abstract We introduce a novel meshfree Galerkin method for the solution of Reissner-Mindlin plate problems that is written in terms of the primitive variables only (i.e., rotations and transverse displacement) and…
