    Notes: The paper deals with substructuring for dynamic analysis of flexible multibody systems. Three different techniques based on component synthesis are discussed, corresponding respectively to fully consistent mass discretization, lumped mass discretization and corotational approximation of inertia forces. To simplify the computer implementation, only the lumped mass and corotational approximations have been considered in detail and programmed. Both approaches are validated on simple examples of rotating beams for which a full elastic model is available using a fully non-linear beam element. The computational efficiency of the corotational inertia approach is also demonstrated on the deployment of a large flexible satellite antenna.

    Notes: Two-dimensional elastoplastic problems are used to assess the performance of a family of mixed finite elements in the non-linear regime. In particular, four-node bilinear quadrilateral elements that exhibit high accuracy in coarse meshes are used to simulate plane stress, plane strain, axisymmetric and (shear-deformable) plate bending problems. The excellent performance of these elements is demonstrated with a number of discriminating examples selected from the literature. In addition, agreement is observed in the limit load predicted by the axisymmetric solid and plate bending elements.

    Notes: Most of the recently proposed computational methods for solving partial differential equations on multiprocessor architectures stem from the 'divide and conquer' paradigm and involve some form of domain decomposition. For those methods which also require grids of points or patches of elements, it is often necessary to explicitly partition the underlying mesh, especially when working with local memory parallel processors. In this paper, a family of cost-effective algorithms for the automatic partitioning of arbitrary two- and three-dimensional finite element and finite difference meshes is presented and discussed in view of a domain decomposed solution procedure and parallel processing. The influence of the algorithmic aspects of a solution method (implicit/explicit computations), and the architectural specifics of a multiprocessor (SIMD/MIMD, startup/transmission time), on the design of a mesh partitioning algorithm are discussed. The impact of the partitioning strategy on load balancing, operation count, operator conditioning, rate of convergence and processor mapping is also addressed. Finally, the proposed mesh decomposition algorithms are demonstrated with realistic examples of finite element, finite volume, and finite difference meshes associated with the parallel solution of solid and fluid mechanics problems on the iPSC/2 and iPSC/860 multiprocessors.

    Notes: A multiharmonic method for analysis of non-linear dynamic systems submitted to periodic loa conditions is presented. The approach is based on a systematic use of the fast Fourier transform. The e linearization of the resulting equations in the frequency domain allows to obtain full quadratic converg rate.

    Notes: Fully automatic three-dimensional mesh generation is an essential and increasingly crucial requirement for finite element solution of partial derivative equations. The results of numerical simulation, more precisely the convergence and accuracy of numerical solutions, closely depends on the quality of the underlying mesh. This work introduces a fully automatic finite element mesh algorithm with simplexes (tetrahedra), adapted to complex geometries described by disctete data.This paper is divided in four sections: (a) brief introduction to discrete geometry is given, as well as the basic definition of the domain of interest; (b) description of the voxel approach to tetrahedronization. The tetrahedronization process uses a divide-and-conquer method, which provides small elements on the boundary of the domain of interest. Voxels of the domain are subdivided according to an automatic procedure, which preserves the topology. Specific rules were introduced which allow reducing the number of voxel configurations to be treated, and consequently the computation time; (c) presentation of results and performances of the mesh algorithms. The resulting algorithm demonstrates an n log n growth rate with respect to the number of elements; (d) optimization of the mesh generation process at hand of a ‘finite-octree’ type of explicit controlling space.
