Asynchronous collision integrators: Explicit treatment of unilateral contact with friction and nodal restraints

Abstract

This article presents asynchronous collision integrators and a simple asynchronous method treating nodal restraints. Asynchronous discretizations allow individual time step sizes for each spatial region, improving the efficiency of explicit time stepping for finite element meshes with heterogeneous element sizes. The article first introduces asynchronous… (More)
