DBFFT: A displacement based FFT approach for homogenization of the mechanical behavior
A new, fast, robust and memory-efficient FFT approach in which the displacement field on the Fourier space is the unknown: the displacement based FFT (DBFFT) algorithm, which results in a linear equation defined in terms of linear operators in the Fouriers space and that does not require a reference medium.
Energy-based comparison between Fourier-Galerkin and finite element method within numerical homogenisation
This work compares the two Fourier-Galerkin methods using the energetic norm of local fields, which has the clear physical interpretation as being the error in the homogenized properties, and shows that the methods' effectiveness rely on the smoothness (regularity) of the solution and thus on the material coefficients.
A multiscale FE-FFT framework for electro-active materials at finite strains
It turns out that while the fully coupled scheme leads to quadratic convergence rates, the uncoupled scheme may allow for shorter computation times under certain boundary conditions.

Development and comparison of spectral algorithms for numerical modeling of the quasi-static mechanical behavior of inhomogeneous materials
Comparison of the performance and convergence behavior of AFB/R- and DGO-based algorithms shows that the former is more efficient than the latter for larger phase contrasts, and one based on so-called averaged-forward-backward-differencing (AFB) is shown to result in the greatest improvement in convergence rate.
FFT based approaches in micromechanics: fundamentals, methods and applications
FFT methods have become a fundamental tool in computational micromechanics since they were first proposed in 1994 by Moulinec and Suquet for the homogenization of composites. Since then many


A finite element perspective on nonlinear FFT‐based micromechanical simulations
Fourier solvers have become efficient tools to establish structure–property relations in heterogeneous materials. Introduced as an alternative to the finite element (FE) method, they are based on

Mixed boundary conditions for FFT-based homogenization at finite strains
In this article we introduce a Lippmann–Schwinger formulation for the unit cell problem of periodic homogenization of elasticity at finite strains incorporating arbitrary mixed boundary conditions.
Improved guaranteed computable bounds on homogenized properties of periodic media by Fourier-Galerkin method with exact integration
Moulinec and Suquet introduced FFT-based homogenization in 1994, and twenty years later, their approach is still effective for evaluating the homogenized properties arising from the periodic cell
Efficient fixed point and Newton–Krylov solvers for FFT-based homogenization of elasticity at large deformations
In recent years the FFT-based homogenization method of Moulinec and Suquet has been established as a fast, accurate and robust tool for obtaining effective properties in linear elasticity and
