    Several theoretical contributions in order to establish a particle packing methodology are presented. In this respect, a generic formulation of a new method for packing particles based on a constructive advancing front ...
  • Modeling polycrystalline materials with elongated grains 

    Pérez, Irvin; Muniz de Farias, Márcio; Castro, Manuel; Roselló, Roberto; Recarey Morfa, Carlos Alexander; Medina, Liosber; Oñate Ibáñez de Navarra, Eugenio (John Wiley & sons, 2019-04)
    Article

    A novel algorithm to reproduce the arrangement of grains in polycrystalline materials was recently published by the authors. In this original approach, a dense package of circles (or spheres) with the same distribution as ...
  • Numerical modelling with experimental validation applied to the study of stud connectors behaviour in concrete and steel composite structures 

    Bonilla, Jorge; Bezerra, Luciano M.; Larrúa, Rafael; Recarey Morfa, Carlos Alexander; Mirambell Arrizabalaga, Enrique (Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile, 2015-04)
    Article
    Open Access
    In this work, the behaviour of stud shear connectors in composite structures is studied, starting from the via numeric simulation of the push out test in a steel beam – with solid concrete slab concrete section is studied. ...
  • Study of stud shear connectors behaviour in composite beams with profiled steel sheeting 

    Bonilla, Jorge; Bezerra, Luciano M.; Larrúa Quevedo, Rafael; Recarey Morfa, Carlos Alexander; Mirambell Arrizabalaga, Enrique (2015-12)
    Article
    Open Access
    This work presents an FE study concerning the prediction of the shear resistance of headed stud connectors in composite beams with profiled steel sheeting subjected to static load. To confirm the FE simulation for the ...
