    An enhanced version of the rotation-free three node triangular BST shell element for sheet stamping analysis is presented. The original BST element is based on an assumed constant curvature field expressed in terms of the ...
  • Red Aulas CIMNE: espacios de colaboración en temas docentes y de I+D en distintas universidades, empresas y centros de investigación de diversos países 

    Oñate Ibáñez de Navarra, Eugenio; Guzmán, Francisco; Bugeda Castelltort, Gabriel; Corestein Poupeau, Georgina; Zárate Araiza, José Francisco (Escola Universitària d'Enginyeria Tècnica Industrial de Barcelona (EUETIB), 2004)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    La mayoría de los avances de I+D que hoy en día se producen quedan limitados en función de necesidades locales. La causa principal es la falta de medios para proyectar la I+D hacia entornos donde pueda ser exitosamente ...
  • Global search methods for nonlinear optimisation: a new probabilistic-stochastic approach 

    Bugeda Castelltort, Gabriel; Balsa-Canto, E; Thamotheram, C; Oñate Ibáñez de Navarra, Eugenio; Zárate Araiza, José Francisco (International Centre for Numerical Methods in Engineering (CIMNE), 2003)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    In this work the problem of overcoming local minima in the solution of nonlinear optimisation problems is addressed. As a first step, the existing nonlinear local and global optimisation methods are reviewed so as to ...
  • Numerical homogenization and experimental validation of a composite plate using modal analysis 

    Pérez Martínez, Marco Antonio; Gil Espert, Lluís; Hammami, Farah; Neifar, Mondher; Chafra, Moez (2010)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - confidentiality agreement
    A Finite Element (FE) simulation and an experimental (EXP) test are performed for the validation of the homogenized global elastic properties of a composite material plate. Composite material homogenization is based on ...
  • A micromechanical approach to modeling the effect of impact induced damage on the vibration response of CFRP laminates 

    Pérez Martínez, Marco Antonio; Gil Espert, Lluís; Oller Martínez, Sergio Horacio; Felippa, Carlos (2015)
    Conference report
