Fostering the use of Computational Mechanics

“The structural performance simulation is accurate to the limit of the
analyst knowledge to accurately interpret it and simulate it.”

Code FEmixHC is based on the new three-dimensional multifield finite element approach for analysis of isotropic,
anisotropic, orthotropic, co,posite and coated materials, in linear transient heat transfer and elastostatics. It is
derived from primal–mixed variational formulations in transient heat transfer and mechanical analysis. The finite
element configuration used is hexahedral because it is superior than tetrahedral in many aspects. The meshing is
not a problem, because the quality of the finite element mesh is irrelevant.
There is a presumption that present formulation is computationally more expensive than the standard one-field one
(e.g. displacement-based FE approach), since it requires to solve multiple unknown fields, for the same model
problem. Nevertheless, it converges faster, it reaches thermal equilibrium faster, and it is stable and reliable.
Namely, the present finite element satisfies the most difficult test of the stability, so-called Inf-Sup condition needed
to ensure the stability of the solution. In fact, dual fields heat flux and stress are of the main interest for the
engineering conclusions about the structural behavior, and here they are calculated simultaneous with the same
accuracy as primal ones.
The outcome is that users can apply heat flux and stress constraints as essential boundary conditions, and introduce
directly initial, prescribed or otherwise known strain and stress fields. Consequently, there is no need for a posteriori
heat flux and stress smoothing technique.
Resulting hexahedral finite element HC8/27 satisfies mathematical convergence requirements, like consistency and
stability, even when it is rigorously slandered, distorted or used for the totally incompressible materials. The finite
elements may differ in size up to 7 orders of magnitude. In order to minimize accuracy error and enable
introductions of displacement and stress constraints, the tensorial character of the present finite element equations
is fully respected.

the solution of the resulting large system of linear equations, As being time efficient, present approach enables full scale
analysis of complex engineering structures, such as wind turbines, nuclear reactor core, or coated components. It is robust in
near incompressible case, and can reliably analyze multimaterial engineering components, as sandwich composite panels with
foam in its core. It is in variance with abundantly used primal finite element approach which suffers of several types of locking
effects in aforementioned examples, and requires dimensional reduction if thick or thin solid bodies are analyzed. The
semi—coupling between with other field problems, such as electromagnetical or moisture diffusion, is enabled also (2005)
