An isogeometric boundary element method for problems in elasticity is presented, which is based on an independent approximation for the geometry, traction and displacement field. This enables a flexible choice of refinement strategies, permits an efficient evaluation of geometry related information, a mixed collocation scheme which deals with discontinuous(More)
We explore extended B-splines as a stable basis for isogeometric analysis with trimmed parameter spaces. The stabilization is accomplished by an appropriate substitution of Bsplines that may lead to ill-conditioned system matrices. The construction for non-uniform knot vectors is presented. The properties of extended B-splines are examined in the context of(More)

In this work a novel method for the analysis with trimmed CAD surfaces is presented. The method involves an additional mapping step and the attraction stems from its simplicity and ease of implementation into existing Finite Element (FEM) or Boundary Element (BEM) software. The method is first verified with classical test examples in structural mechanics.(More)
In this work we address the complexity problem of the isogeometric Boundary Element Method by proposing a collocation scheme for practical problems in linear elasticity and the application of hierarchical matrices. For mixed boundary value problems, a block system of matrices – similar to Galerkin formulations – is constructed allowing an effective(More)
Through encapsulant vias (TEVs) are an interconnect technology which enables 3D stacking and double sided re-routing of packages encapsulated with epoxy molding compound. These interconnects are formed by Cu-plated holes through the encapsulant and can typically be routed by an RDL (redistribution layer). In order to enable prolonged function of these(More)
