Stabilized space-time fluid-structure interaction techniques with the continuum element
We present the methods used to add continuum element functionality to the structure side of our Fluid-Structure Interaction (FSI) solver. The FSI solver, already capable of handling the interaction between membrane structure ...
A three-dimensional finite element method for quantifying stress shielding following total hip replacement
One of the critical problems associated with total hip replacement is the loosening of femoral stem. A major cause of femoral stem loosening is believed to be stress shielding of the proximal femur following implantation. ...
The energy of breathing in a nonlinear model of the human lung
A Lagrangian approach is used to perform an energy analysis on a nonlinear model of the human lung. Energy functions associated with the mechanics of breathing are obtained. Analytical expressions are derived for the work ...
Arterial fluid mechanics computations with the stabilized space-time fluid-structure interaction techniques
The stabilized space-time fluid-structure interaction (SSTFSI) techniques developed by the Team for Advanced Flow Simulation and Modeling (T☆AFSM) are applied to the field of arterial fluid mechanics through the FSI ...
