    • Control of heat flux using computationally designed metamaterials 

      Fachinotti, Víctor D.; Peralta, Ignacio; Huespe, Alfredo Edmundo; Ciarbonetti, A. (2016)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      To gain control over the diffusive heat flux in a given domain, one has to design metamaterials with a specifc distribution of the generally anisotropic thermal conductivity throughout the domain. Until now, the appropriate ...
    • Inverse finite element modeling of shells using the degenerate solid approach 

      Fachinotti, Víctor D.; Albanesi, Alejandro E.; Martínez Valle, José M. (2015-09)
      Article
      Open Access
      The Inverse Finite Element Method (IFEM) for degenerate solid shells is introduced. IFEM allows determining the undeformed shape of a body (in this case, a shell-like body) such that it attains a desired shape after large ...
    • Optimization-based design of a heat flux concentrator 

      Peralta, Ignacio; Fachinotti, Víctor D.; Ciarbonetti, Ángel A. (Nature Publishing Group, 2017)
      Article
      Open Access
      To gain control over the diffusive heat flux in a given domain, one needs to engineer a thermal metamaterial with a specific distribution of the generally anisotropic thermal conductivity throughout the domain. Until now, ...
    • Sensitivity of the thermomechanical response of elastic structures to microstructural changes 

      Fachinotti, Víctor D.; Toro, Sebastian; Sánchez, Pablo J.; Huespe, Alfredo Edmundo (2015-09)
      Article
      Open Access
      This paper is focused on the analysis of the sensitivity of the thermomechanical response of a macroscopic elastic body to changes that occur at the microstructure. This problem is a key issue in material design. The ...
