    Article
    Open Access
    During the flight, the crew might consider modifying their planned trajectory, taking into account currently available information, such as an updated weather forecast report or the already accrued amount of delay. This ...
  • Enriched finite element approach for modeling discontinuous electric field in multi-material problems 

    Narváez Muñoz, Christian; Hashemi, Mohammad Reza; Ryzhakov, Pavel; Pons Prats, Jordi; Owen, Herbert (Elsevier, 2023-11-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    This work is devoted to developing an efficient and robust technique for accurately capturing the electric field in multi-material problems. The formulation is based on the finite element method enriched by the introduction ...
