  • Computation of bounds for anchor problems in limit analysis and decomposition techniques 

    Muñoz Romero, José; Rabiei, Syednima; Lyamin, Andrei; Huerta, Antonio (Springer, 2013-07-15)
    Part of book or chapter of book
    Open Access
    Numerical techniques for the computation of strict bounds in limit analyses have been developed for more than thirty years. The efficiency of these techniques have been substantially improved in the last ten years, and ...
  • An efficacious method to assemble a modern multi-modal robotic team: dilemmas, challenges, possibilities and solutions 

    Abdollahi Hosnijeh, Amir; Samani, Hooman Aghaebrahimi (Daisuke Chugo, Sho Yokota, 2012-01-05)
    Part of book or chapter of book
    Open Access
    A modern multiagent robotic platform consists of a cooperative team of humans which develop a collaborative team of robots. The multi-modal nature of both the system and the team causes a complex problem which needs to ...
  • Stress dependent morphogenesis continuum mechanics and system of trusses 

    Muñoz Romero, José; Conte, Vito; Miodownik, M. (Nova Publishers, 2010-08-30)
    Part of book or chapter of book
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The mechanical analysis of soft tissues in biomechanics has undergone an increasing progress during the last decade. Part of this success is due to the development and application of some techniques of continuum mechanics, ...
  • Meshfree methods 

    Huerta, Antonio; Belytscko, T; Fernandez Mendez, Sonia; Rabczuk, T (John Wiley & Sons, 2004-10)
    Part of book or chapter of book
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The aim of this chapter is to provide an in-depth presentation and survey of meshfree particle methods. Several particle approximations are reviewed; the SPH method, corrected gradient methods and the moving least squares ...
  • Arbitrary Lagrangian-Eulerian methods 

    Donea, J; Huerta, Antonio; Ponthot, J -Ph; Rodríguez Ferran, Antonio (John Wiley & Sons, 2004-10)
    Part of book or chapter of book
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Aim of the present chapter is to provide an in-depth survey of arbitrary Lagrangian-Eulerian (ALE) methods, including both conceptual aspects of the mixed kinematical description and numerical implementation details. ...
  • Effectiveness of Problem Based Learning for Engineering Curriculum 

    Rojas Gregorio, José Ignacio; Prats Menéndez, Xavier; Villardi de Montlaur, Adeline de; Valero García, Miguel; García-Berro Montilla, Enrique (IGI Global, 2010)
    Part of book or chapter of book
    Open Access
    The main purpose of this paper is to describe the process by which an initially limited-range practical experience, within the frame of a given subject in an aerospace engineering degree, might be expanded to become the ...
