DC10 Implementation of IGA in the design and analysis workflow of machine elements and systems:

Although the basic principles of IGA are known for some decades, its application in industry is less spread than one would expect considering its fundamental advantage: the representation of real surfaces in a well-defined mathematical way instead of a discrete non-smooth finite element mesh.

DC9 Model Order Reduction of coupled vibro-acoustic systems:

DC9 will work towards efficient model order reduction schemes for one-way coupled and fully coupled vibro-acoustic analysis where the acoustic domain is described using a boundary discretisation.

DC8 Efficient unbounded acoustic analysis starting from CAD:

Combine the IGA BEM method and recent model order reduction strategies that have been applied in a pure BEM-context.

DC7 Complex Constitutive modelling for immersed and shell discretizations:

Study of structural mechanics problems for immersed 3D or shell discretizations, with a special focus on advanced constitutive modeling, composites, phase-field modeling of brittle fracture, structural dynamics.

DC6 Mathematical tools for immersed IGA:

Development of mathematical tools for immersed IGA, related, in particular, to accurate and efficient integration, multipatch coupling, and dynamics (implicit and/or explicit).

DC5 Large deformation structural elements (beams and shells) modeled with IBRA, including trimming and multiple coupled patches:

Development and systematic assessment of high-accuracy and robust structural mechanics elements for large deformation isogeometric B-Rep analysis.

DC4 Co-simulation strategies involving IBRA for solution of multi-field problems:

Complex technical systems often require a partitioned approach to enable disciplinary modelling and simulation with bestsuited solution approaches and discretization techniques in each domain.

DC3 Application of IBRA-type discretizations in implicit contact mechanics:

Use of smooth CAD discretizations in contact mechanics is known to be beneficial.

DC2 IBRA-type discretizations in computational solid mechanics:

Explore the applicability of IBRA-type discretization to problems in solid mechanics.
