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.

NASRI, 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 ...
AMMAR, Amine; HUERTA, Antonio; CHINESTA, Francisco; CUETO, Elias; LEYGUE, Adrien (Elsevier, 2014)Optimization of manufacturing processes or structures involves the optimal choice of many parameters (process parameters, material parameters or geometrical parameters). Usual strategies proceed by defining a trial choice ...
Real-time in silico experiments on gene regulatory networks and surgery simulation on handheld devices ALFARO, Iciar; GONZALEZ, David; BORDEU, Felipe; LEYGUE, Adrien; AMMAR, Amine; CUETO, Elias; CHINESTA, Francisco (Springer, 2014)Simulation of all phenomena taking place in a surgical procedure is a formidable task that involves, when possible, the use of supercomputing facilities over long time periods. However, decision taking in the operating ...
ANGEL, Leon; BARASINSKI, Anais; ABISSET-CHAVANNE, Emmanuelle; CUETO, Elias; CHINESTA, Francisco (Elsevier, 2018)Separated representations at the heart of Proper Generalized Decomposition are constructed incrementally by minimizing the problem residual. However, the modes involved in the resulting decomposition do not exhibit a clear ...
Reduction of the chemical master equation for gene regulatory networks using proper generalized decompositions AMMAR, Amine; CUETO, Elias; CHINESTA, Francisco (Wiley Library, 2012)The numerical solution of the chemical master equation (CME) governing gene regulatory networks and cell signaling processes remains a challenging task owing to its complexity, exponentially growing with the number of ...
