Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Isogeometric analysis (IGA) is a recently developed computational approach, which has great potential to integrate finite element analysis into conventional NURBS-based CAD design tools. It, thus, bridges the gap between numerical analysis and geometry. Compared to the conventional finite element method, IGA coherently fuses both CAD and CAE fields and has demonstrated many merits, for example: exact geometry is maintained, high order continuity, flexible k-refinement and so on. IGA promises to revolutionize design and analysis processes for automobile, aerospace, and marine industry by eliminating the need for model conversion, approximation, and meshing.

The purpose of this Special Issue is to bring together experts from IGA theory and applications and is aimed at promoting a wider awareness throughout the IGA community of recent developments in this field. Articles focusing on novel contributions containing new theoretical insights, method developments, or applications are desired. Topics of interest for publication include but are not limited to:

  • New isogeometric analysis technologies;
  • Adaptive methods;
  • Phase field models;
  • Multiscale methods for fracture;
  • Contact mechanics;
  • Topological optimization;
  • Computational methods for crack detection;
  • Composite structures;
  • Modeling and simulation;
  • Numerical methods

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Axioms is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.

A Non-Intrusive Stochastic Isogeometric Analysis of Functionally Graded Plates with Material Uncertainty

A non-intrusive approach coupled with non-uniform rational B-splines based isogeometric finite element method is proposed here. The developed methodology was employed to study the stochastic static bending and free vibration characteristics of functionally graded material plates with inhered material randomness. A first order shear deformation theory with an artificial shear correction factor was used for spatial discretization. The output randomness is represented by polynomial chaos expansion. The robustness and accuracy of the framework were demonstrated by comparing the results with Monte Carlo simulations. A systematic parametric study was carried out to bring out the sensitivity of the input randomness on the stochastic output response using Sobol’ indices. Functionally graded plates made up of Aluminium (Al) and Zirconium Oxide (ZrO2) were considered in all the numerical examples. Full article
