Partners from CIMNE present Fatigue4Light project in the ECCOMAS Congress 2022
The Fatigue4Light project, coordinated by CIMNE, has been presented during the 8th European Congress on Computational Methods in Applied Sciences and Engineering (ECCOMAS CONGRESS), celebrated from 5th – 9th of June in Oslo, Norway.
This year’s congress has been hosted by the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), together with SINTEF and the Nordic Association for Computational Mechanics in Engineering (NOACM).
During the congress, project partners have participated in various sessions of the event delivering different presentations based on some of the work and research done within the Fatigue4Light project.
Sergio Jiménez, PhD student at CIMNE, has presented the work titled “Plastic-damage model for cyclic loading: phenomenological rule of mixtures approach”, introducing a new coupled plastic damage model developed which is especially formulated in for the case where transitions need to be made from the high cycle fatigue domain to low cycle fatigue or the other way around. The model is versatile enough to be reduced, if necessary, to exclusively a degradation process or to exclusively a plasticity process.
On the other hand, Alejandro Cornejo, PhD researcher at CIMNE, has delivered a presentation named “A unified non-linear energy dissipation-based plastic-damage model for cycling loading”. In this talk he proposed a new approach of a plastic damage model in which a novel internal variable is used: non-linear energy dissipation. This model has been effectively applied in monotonic and cyclic loading taking into account crack opening and reclosing effects.
ECCOMAS is a scientific organisation grouping together European associations with interests in the development and applications of computational methods in applied sciences and technology. Its mission is to promote joint efforts of European universities, research institutes and industries which are active in the broader field of numerical methods and computer simulation in Engineering and Applied Sciences.
