  • New insights in the analysis of blunt force trauma in human bones. Preliminary results 

    Scheirs, Sarah; Malgosa, Assumpció; Sánchez Molina, David; Ortega-Sánchez, Marisa; Velázquez Ameijide, Juan; Arregui Dalmases, Carlos; Medallo-Muñiz, Jordi; Galtés Vicente, Ignasi (2017-01-10)
    Article
    Open Access
    Determining the time of injury is an important but still a challenging task in forensic anthropology. In literature, many descriptions can be found to make a distinction between perimortem and postmortem fractures. Char ...
  • Modeling of surface wear by the particle finite element method: application to tunneling processes 

    Carbonell Puigbó, Josep Maria; Suárez Arroyo, Benjamín; Oñate Ibáñez de Navarra, Eugenio (2009)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    This work introduces the advances in the Particle Finite Element Method (PFEM) for the modeling of contact and wear between solid materials. The PFEM is an original conjunction of solution strategies. The method has its ...
  • Performance of mixed formulations for the particle finite element method in soil mechanics problems 

    Monforte, LLuís; Carbonell Puigbó, Josep Maria; Arroyo Alvarez de Toledo, Marcos; Gens Solé, Antonio (Springer, 2017-07)
    Article
    Open Access
    This paper presents a computational framework for the numerical analysis of fluid-saturated porous media at large strains. The proposal relies, on one hand, on the particle finite element method (PFEM), known for its ...
