|Title:||A Block-Coupled Finite Volume Methodology for Linear Elasticity and Unstructured Meshes||Authors:||Cardiff, Philip
|Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/7940||Date:||15-Oct-2016||Abstract:||The current article presents a new implicit cell-centred Finite Volume solution methodology for linear elasticity and unstructured meshes. Details are given of the implicit discretisation, including use of a Finite Area method for face tangential gradients and implicit non-orthogonal correction. A number of 2-D and 3-D linear-elastic benchmark test cases are examined using hexahedral, tetrahedral and general polyhedral meshes; solution accuracy and efficiency are compared with that of a segregated procedure and a commercial Finite Element software, where the new method is shown to be faster in all cases.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Elsevier||Keywords:||Cell-centred finite volume method;Finite area method;Bi-conjugate gradient stabilised method;Block-coupled;Polyhedral mesh;OpenFOAM||DOI:||10.1016/j.compstruc.2016.07.004||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
