Mapping Cohesive Fracture and Fragmentation Simulations to Graphics Processor Units

  title={Mapping Cohesive Fracture and Fragmentation Simulations to Graphics Processor Units},
  author={Andrei Alhadeff and Waldemar Celes and Glaucio H. Paulino},
A graphics processor units(GPU)-based computational framework is presented to deal with dynamic failure events simulated by means of cohesive zone elements. The work is divided into two parts. In the first part, we deal with pre-processing of the information and verify the effectiveness of dynamic insertion of cohesive elements in large meshes in parallel. To this effect, we employ a novel and simplified topological data structure specialized for meshes with triangles, designed to run… CONTINUE READING
