Natural Element Method for the Simulation of Structures and Processes
The Natural Element Method (NEM) is halfway between meshless methods and the finite element method. This book presents a recent state of the art on the foundations and applications of the meshless natural element method in computational mechanics, including structural mechanics and material-forming processes involving solids and Newtonian and non-Newtonian fluids. The purpose of this text is to describe the natural element technique in its context, i.e. compared to the finite element-type techniques, which have proved reliable for many years, but also compared to other techniques with and without meshes. Both advantages and disadvantages of the technique have been listed. It has been written with a teaching purpose in mind, to be used by both professionals and students at Master's level.

Ouvrage scientifiqueCHINESTA, Francisco; CESCOTTO, Serge; CUETO, Elías; LORONG, Philippe (Wiley & Sons, 2013)Computational mechanics is the discipline concerned with the use of computational methods to study phenomena governed by the principles of mechanics. Before the emergence of computational science (also called scientific ...
Crossing Scales: Data-Driven Determination of the Micro-scale Behavior of Polymers From Non-homogeneous Tests at the Continuum-Scale Article dans une revue avec comité de lectureAMORES, Víctor J.; MONTÁNS, Francisco J.; CUETO, Elías; CHINESTA, Francisco (Frontiers Media SA, 2022-05)We propose an efficient method to determine the micro-structural entropic behavior of polymer chains directly from a sufficiently rich non-homogeneous experiment at the continuum scale. The procedure is developed in 2 ...

Communication avec acteNASRI, Mohamed Aziz; AGUADO, Jose Vicente; AMMAR, Amine; CUETO, Elias; CHINESTA, Francisco; MOREL, Franck; ROBERT, Camille; EL AREM, Saber (Key Engineering Materials, 2015)Forming processes usually involve irreversible plastic transformations. The calculation in that case becomes cumbersome when large parts and processes are considered. Recently Model Order Reduction techniques opened new ...
Article dans une revue avec comité de lectureHERNÁNDEZ, Quercus; BADÍAS, Alberto; GONZÁLEZ, David; CHINESTA, Francisco; CUETO, Elías (Elsevier, 2021)We develop a method to learn physical systems from data that employs feedforward neural networks and whose predictions comply with the first and second principles of thermodynamics. The method employs a minimum amount of ...
