|Title:||Development of a finite volume contact solver based on the penalty method||Authors:||Cardiff, Philip
|Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/4841||Date:||Nov-2012||Abstract:||This paper describes the development and application of a frictionless contact stress solver based on the cell-centred finite volume method. The contact methodology, implemented in the open-source software OpenFOAM, is derived from the penalty method commonly used in finite element contact algorithms. The solver is verified on two benchmark tests using the available Hertzian analytical solutions.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Elsevier||Journal:||Computational Materials Science||Volume:||64||Start page:||283||End page:||284||Copyright (published version):||2012 Elsevier||Keywords:||Contact stresses; Finite volume method; OpenFOAM; Iterative penalty method||DOI:||10.1016/j.commatsci.2012.03.011||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
