An open-source finite volume toolbox for solid mechanics and fluid-solid interaction simulations
|Title:||An open-source finite volume toolbox for solid mechanics and fluid-solid interaction simulations||Authors:||Cardiff, Philip; Karac, Aleksandar; Jaeger, Peter De; Ivankovic, Alojz; et al.||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/10961||Date:||2018||Online since:||2019-08-12T07:00:04Z||Abstract:||Over the past 30 years, the cell-centred finite volume method has developed to become a viable alternative to the finite element method in the field of computational solid mechanics. The current article presents an open-source toolbox for solid mechanics and fluid-solid interaction simulations based on the finite volume library OpenFOAM. The object-oriented toolbox design is outlined, where emphasis has been given to code use, comprehension, maintenance and extension. The toolbox capabilities are demonstrated on a number of representative test problems, where comparisons are given with finite element solutions.||metadata.dc.description.othersponsorship:||Bekaert through the University Technology Centre (UTC)
