Publication# Adaptive isogeometric analysis on two-dimensional trimmed domains based on a hierarchical approach

Abstract

The focus of this work is on the development of an error-driven isogeometric framework, capable of automatically performing an adaptive simulation in the context of second- and fourth-order, elliptic partial differential equations defined on two-dimensional trimmed domains. The method is steered by an a posteriori error estimator, which is computed with the aid of an auxiliary residual-like problem formulated onto a space spanned by splines with single element support. The local refinement of the basis is achieved thanks to the use of truncated hierarchical B-splines. We prove numerically the applicability of the proposed estimator to various engineering-relevant problems, namely the Poisson problem, linear elasticity and Kirchhoff–Love shells, formulated on trimmed geometries. In particular, we study several benchmark problems which exhibit both smooth and singular solutions, where we recover optimal asymptotic rates of convergence for the error measured in the energy norm and we observe a substantial increase in accuracy per-degree-of-freedom compared to uniform refinement. Lastly, we show the applicability of our framework to the adaptive shell analysis of an industrial-like trimmed geometry modeled in the commercial software Rhinoceros, which represents the B-pillar of a car.

In estimation theory and decision theory, a Bayes estimator or a Bayes action is an estimator or decision rule that minimizes the posterior expected value of a loss function (i.e., the posterior expected loss). Equivalently, it maximizes the posterior expectation of a utility function. An alternative way of formulating an estimator within Bayesian statistics is maximum a posteriori estimation. Suppose an unknown parameter is known to have a prior distribution .

In mathematics, a partial differential equation (PDE) is an equation which computes a function between various partial derivatives of a multivariable function. The function is often thought of as an "unknown" to be solved for, similar to how x is thought of as an unknown number to be solved for in an algebraic equation like x2 − 3x + 2 = 0. However, it is usually impossible to write down explicit formulas for solutions of partial differential equations.

In statistics, an estimator is a rule for calculating an estimate of a given quantity based on observed data: thus the rule (the estimator), the quantity of interest (the estimand) and its result (the estimate) are distinguished. For example, the sample mean is a commonly used estimator of the population mean. There are point and interval estimators. The point estimators yield single-valued results. This is in contrast to an interval estimator, where the result would be a range of plausible values.

The p-Laplacian problem -del & sdot; ((mu + |del u|(p-2))del u) = f is considered, where mu is a given positive number. An anisotropic a posteriori residual-based error estimator is presented. The error estimator is shown to be equivalent, up to higher ord ...

Local modifications of a computational domain are often performed in order to simplify the meshing process and to reduce computational costs and memory requirements. However, removing geometrical features of a domain often introduces a non-negligible error ...
