Talk Title: Isogeometric methods for extreme-event simulation: Air blast fluid-structure interaction - methodology and applications
A novel framework for air-blast-structure interaction based on an immersed approach coupling isogeometric analysis (IGA) and reproducing-kernel-particle-method (RKPM) based meshfree methods is presented and verified on a set of challenging problems. A novel phase-field methodology for brittle fracture, amenable to explicit time integration, is presented. Its coupling with the air-blast-structure-interaction framework is also presented, and the coupled framework is deployed on a set of challenging examples.
Yuri Bazilevs is the E. Paul Sorensen Professor of Engineering at Brown University. Professor Bazilevs develops sophisticated computational techniques and tools to build predictive models for a wide range of applications. His work addresses complex problems in the areas of medicine, such as blood flow in the heart and arteries, as well as in medical devices including blood pumps and artificial hearts; renewable energy, such as assessing damage to wind turbines due to extreme conditions in harsh offshore environments; and protecting infrastructure against man-made and natural disasters, such as assessing the response of structures to terrorist attacks. For his research contributions, Professor Bazilevs has received several awards and honors. Most recently, he was included in the 2014, 2015, and 2016 Thomson-Reuters lists of Highly Cited Researchers and World's Most Influential Scientific Minds, both in the Engineering and Computer Science categories.
