    • Elasto-viscoplastic material model considering larges trains for EFTE-foils 

      Coelho, Marianna (CIMNE, 2015-10-19)
      Conference lecture
      Open Access
      The growing use of ETFE-Foils in pneumatic structures has motivated the research in material models for thermoplastic polymeric. This type of polymer is more resistant to solvents and other chemicals. The lightweight ...
    • Pressure-volume coupling in inflatable structures 

      Coelho, Marianna; Bletzinger, Kai-Uwe; Roehl, Deane (CIMNE, 2011)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      Inflatable structures or pneumatic structures are air-supported structures and find application in a variety of new engineering projects. By these structures the gas gives shape and strength to the structure in such a way ...
    • Using nurbs as response surface for membrane material behavior 

      Coelho, Marianna; Roehl, Deane; Bletzinger, Kai-Uwe (CIMNE, 2013)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      This work proposes a NURBS for the determination of a smooth response surface relating biaxial strains and stresses from discrete test data. These NURBS surfaces are based on two axes of strain and one axis of stress. The ...
