  • In this article, mesh adaptation techniques have been used with the arbitrary Lagrangian-Eulerian finite-element method for analysis of metal-forming problems. The r-method of node relocation has been found suitable for this purpose and is driven by errors based on effective plastic strain. Two forming simulations for elastic-viscoplastic materials have been executed under plane-strain conditions, and the effect of mesh adaptation has been studied.

  • We present a new adaptive Arbitrary Lagrangian Eulerian (ALE) method. This method is based on the reconnection-based ALE (ReALE) methodology of Refs. [35], [34] and [6]. The main elements in a standard ReALE method are: an explicit Lagrangian phase on an arbitrary polygonal (in 2D) mesh in which the solution and positions of grid nodes are updated; a rezoning phase in which a new grid is defined by changing the connectivity (using Voronoi tessellation) but not the number of cells; and a remapping phase in which the Lagrangian solution is transferred onto the new grid. Furthermore, in the standard ReALEmore » method, the rezoned mesh is smoothed by using one or several steps toward centroidal Voronoi tessellation, but it is not adapted to the solution in any way.« less
  • A heat transfer analysis for solidification problems has been conducted to evaluate the temperature field and the location of the phase-change interface. An arbitrary Lagrangian-Eulerian kinematic description has been utilized in the finite-element formulation to impart flexibility to the motion of the nodes. By detaching the nodal points from the underlying material, nodes can be monitored to follow the evolving front, while maintaining shapes of the elements. Special numerical techniques to smoothen the deforming front and to avoid continuous remeshing have been introduced. Numerical examples have been solved to establish the validity of the present model and its strength.
  • We have conducted a suite of Large Eddy Simulation (LES) to form the basis of a multi-model comparison (left). The results have led to proposed model improvements. We have verified that Eulerian-Lagrangian effective diffusivity estimates of mesoscale mixing are consistent with traditional particle statistics metrics (right). LES and Lagrangian particles will be utilized to better represent the movement of water into and out of the mixed layer.
