Coffee Talk - "Advances in Constitutive Laws in the Structural Mechanics Application in Kratos", by Alejandro Cornejo

Published: 17/09/2018

Wednesday, October 31st, 2018. Time: 15h

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


This coffee talk introduces the implementation of several constitutive laws in the Structural Mechanics Application in Kratos. In order to achieve the maximum polivalence for the user and developer, a generic programming procedure has been performed by "templating" the yield surfaces and plastic potentials available in the same application. In addition, some examples of "how to implement my constitutive law" or "how to add my yield surface" in this generic framework will be exposed.


Alejandro Cornejo is a MSC Civil engineer by the Technical University of Catalonia, currently in his 2nd year of his PhD related to the analysis of multifracture in structures and materials by means of a coupled FEM-DEM (Finite Element Method and Discrete Element Method) supervised by the professors Eugenio Oñate and Francisco Zárate.
