AI Seminar: Cut Finite Element Methods for Contact Problem

Speaker

Susanne Claus, Postdoc in the Image Analysis, Computational Modelling and Geometry Section at Department of Computer Science, University of Copenhagen.

Abstract

In this presentation, I will first give a brief introduction into the fundamentals of finite element methods followed by an overview over a novel finite element method that I am developing for contact problems. The highlight of the new method lies in the description of geometries using level set functions combined with fixed finite element background grids. I will show numerical results for contact in composite materials and I will show how the method is used to create efficient pipelines from CT images to finite element simulations.
