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)
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)
A novel approach to the simulation with the boundary element method using trimmed NURBS patches is presented. The advantage of this approach is its efficiency and easy implementation. The analysis with trimmed NURBS is achieved by double mapping. The variation of the unknowns on the boundary is specified in a local coordinate system and is completely(More)
In this paper the isogeometric Nyström method is presented. It's outstanding features are: it allows the analysis of domains described by many different geometrical mapping methods in computer aided geometric design and it requires only pointwise function evaluations just like isogeomet-ric collocation methods. The analysis of the computational domain is(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)
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 B-splines 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(More)
In this work a novel approach is presented for the isogeometric Boundary Element analysis of domains that contain inclusions with different elastic properties than the ones used for computing the fundamental solutions. In addition the inclusion may exhibit inelastic material behavior. In this paper only plane stress/strain problems are considered. In our(More)
