Coffee talk - "Programming constitutive models in Kratos framework", by Josep Ma Carbonell

Wednesday, May 23rd, 2018. Time: 15:30h.

Place: O.C. Zienkiewicz Conference Room, C1 Building, UPC Campus Nord, Barcelona


In this coffee talk we are going to present and discuss the general implementation of a constitutive model in a finite element code. The current solution implemented in the Kratos Multiphysics framework for a basic and more advanced models will be explained in detail. The idea is to contrast the implementation with other codes developed by other researchers with high experience in the field.

Composite materials, multi-scale constitutive analysis, treatment of the coupling of the material behaviour with different physical phenomena, fatigue and other issues are still in a development stage into Kratos. Experienced people in those and other areas are welcomed to give their point of view, opinion and proposals. The purpose is to expose and compile a set of ideas in order to determine the proper programming structure for a material modelling application.


Josep Ma CarbonellJosep Maria is an Associate Research Professor at CIMNE in the area of structures and manufacturing, and an Associated Lecturer at the EEBE (Escola d'Enginyeria de Barcelona Est), where he teaches Continuum Mechanics, Elasticity and Numerical Methods to undergraduate students.

He is the team manager and the main developer of the Solid Mechanics application and the PFEM application in the Kratos Multiphysics project.
