Defensa Tesis L. Garelli "FLUID STRUCTURE INTERACTION USING AN ALE FORMULATION" (FICH UNL)

DOCTORADO EN INGENIERÍA

INSTITUTO DE DESARROLLO TECNOLÓGICO PARA LA INDUSTRIA QUÍMICA

DEFENSA PÚBLICA DE LA TESIS DOCTORAL

Titulo: FLUID STRUCTURE INTERACTION USING AN ARBITRARY LAGRANGIAN
EULERIAN FORMULATION

ABSTRACT:
Multidisciplinary and Multiphysics coupled problems represent nowadays a
challenging field when studying even more complex phenomena that appear in
nature and in new technologies (e.g. Magneto-Hydrodynamics, Micro-Electro-
Mechanics, Thermo-Mechanics, Fluid-Structure Interaction, etc.). Particularly,
when dealing with Fluid-Structure Interaction problems several questions arise,
namely the coupling algorithm, the mesh moving strategy, the Galilean Invari-
ance of the scheme, the compliance with the Discrete Geometric Conservation
Law (DGCL), etc. Therefore, the aim of this thesis is the development and
implementation of a coupling algorithm for existing modules or subsystems,
in order to carry out FSI simulations with the focus on distributed memory
parallel platforms. Regarding the coupling techniques, some results on the
convergence of the strong coupling Gauss-Seidel iteration are presented. Also,
the precision of different predictor schemes for the structural system and the
influence of the partitioned coupling on stability are discussed. Another key
point when solving FSI problems is the use of the   Arbitrary Lagrangian
Eulerian formulation   (ALE), which allows the use of moving meshes. As
the ALE contributions affect the advective terms, some modifications on the
stabilizing and the shock-capturing terms, are needed. Also, the movements of
the fluid mesh produces a volume change in time of the elements, which adds
to the fluid formulation an extra conservation law to be satisfied. The law is

Pago cuota societaria 2012

Estimados asociados

Queremos recordar la necesidad del pago de las cuotas 
societarias en término.

Los asociados que asistieron al ENIEF 2011, en ocasión 
de pagar la inscripción al congreso, han hecho también 
el pago de la cuota anual 2012, cuyo vencimiento opera el 
31 de diciembre de 2011.

Para aquellos que no lo hayan hecho, les recordamos que 
deben pagar la membresía 2012 antes de fin de año.
Los medios de pago son varios y puede hacerse facilmente
desde el portal de AMCA. 

Es importante para nuestra Asociación poder llevar los 
libros de asociados, uno de los libros requeridos por la 
Dirección de Personas Jurídicas, amén de contar con los 
recursos genuinos que proceden de las cuotas societarias.

Por otro lado, a principios de cada año se abona a la IACM
las membresías de cada uno de nuestros asociados, a esta 
asociación internacional. Lo cual reafirma la necesidad de 
contar tempranamente con las cuotas societarias al día.

Agradeciendo a todos el apoyo a nuestra Asociación, los saludo
cordialmente
