REVIEW ARTICLES

Appl. Mech. Rev. 2002;55(4):299-324. doi:10.1115/1.1482087.

Fundamentals of Fast Multipole Method (FMM) and FMM accelerated Boundary Integral Equation Method (BIEM) are presented. Developments of FMM accelerated BIEM in the Laplace and Helmholtz equations, wave equation, and heat equation are reviewed. Applications of these methods in computational mechanics are surveyed. This review article contains 173 references.

Laminated composite shells are increasingly being used in various engineering applications including aerospace, mechanical, marine, and automotive engineering. With the increasing awareness of and sensitivity to structural noise and vibration, research covering the dynamic behavior of composite shells has received considerable attention. The purpose of this article is to review most of the recent research done in this field. Review of the literature on the dynamic behavior of homogeneous shells is covered in Part 2 of this article to be published in the September 2002 issue of AMR. Research on shell dynamics is found to be mainly free vibration analyses. The review is conducted with emphasis given to the theory being applied (thin, thick, 3D, nonlinear, [[ellipsis]]), the analysis method (exact, Ritz, finite elements, [[ellipsis]]), complicating effects (initial stress, imperfection, added masses and springs, elastic supports, rotating shells, and others), and the various shell geometries that were subject to vibration research (cylindrical, conical, spherical, and others). There are 374 references cited in this review article.

Models for thermo-hydro-mechanical behavior of saturated/unsaturated porous media are reviewed. The necessary balance equations are derived using averaging theories. Constitutive equations are obtained using the Coleman-Noll procedure and thermodynamic equations for the model closure are introduced. A particular form of the governing equations is then solved numerically and the numerical properties are discussed. Application examples conclude the paper. There are 165 references in this review article.

A review of numerical procedures for stress calculation in the inelastic finite element analysis is presented. The role of stress integration within a time (load) step in the incremental-iterative scheme for the displacements based FE formulation is first given briefly. Then, the basic relations of the explicit algorithms, as the first ones developed in the 70s, are presented. The shortcomings of these algorithms are pointed out. The implicit procedures are presented in some detail, with the emphasis on a general return mapping procedure and the governing parameter method (GPM). Derivation of the consistent tangent moduli represents an important task in the inelastic FE analysis because the overall equilibrium iteration rate depends on these moduli. The basic concepts of this derivation are presented. An important field, very challenging in today’s stage of design and technology, is the large strain deformation of material. A review of the approaches in the large strain domain that includes the rate and the total formulations is given in some detail. Special attention is devoted to the multiplicative decomposition of deformation gradient concept, since that concept is generally favored today. Some unresolved issues, such as the use of the stress and strain measures, are discussed briefly. A number of selected numerical examples illustrate the main topics in the stress integration task, as well as the applications of the stress integration algorithms to various material models. Some concluding remarks and an outline of further research topics are given at the end of the paper. This review article includes 205 references.
