The finite element method (FEM) technique has been developed to simulate and analyze complex engineering problems. However, there are a number of drawbacks with finite element simulation of discontinuous problems, such as fracture mechanics problems, including the computational cost of a very fine finite element mesh and the complex remeshing strategy in capturing discontinuity. The extended finite element method (XFEM) has therefore been developed to improve the performance of the conventional finite element method in discontinuity problems. Extended Finite Element Method: Theory and Applications introduces the theory and applications of XFEM in the linear and nonlinear problems of continua, structures, and geomechanics. It begins by introducing the concept of a partition of unity, various enrichment functions, and fundamentals of XFEM formulation. It then covers the theory and application of XFEM in large deformations, plasticity, and contact problems. The implementation of XFEM in fracture mechanics, including linear, cohesive, and ductile crack propagation, is also covered. Finally, the theory and applications of XFEM in multiphase fluid flow, including hydraulic fracturing in soil saturated media and crack propagation in thermo-hydro-mechanical porous media, are discussed in detail. Key features: Comprehensively introduces XFEM analysis + Explains the theory and applications of XFEM in various continuum and geo-mechanical problems + Includes worked examples + Accompanied by a website hosting source code and examples. Extended Finite Element Method: Theory and Applications is a comprehensive introduction to XFEM analysis for researchers and practitioners in industry, and is also an ideal textbook for graduate students in mechanical and civil engineering.ccompanied by a website hosting source code and examples

This book presents three distinct pillars for analysis, design, and planning: urban water cycle and variability as the state of water being; landscape architecture as the medium for built-by-design; and total systems as the planning approach. The increasing demand for water and urban and industrial expansions have caused myriad environmental, social, economic, and political predicaments. More frequent and severe floods and droughts have changed the resiliency and ability of water infrastructure systems to operate and provide services to the public. These concerns and issues have also changed the way we plan and manage our water resources. Focusing on urban challenges and contexts, the book provides foundational information regarding water science and engineering while also examining topics relating to urban stormwater, water supply, and wastewater infrastructures. It also addresses critical emerging issues such as simulation and economic modeling, flood resiliency, environmental visualization, satellite data applications, and digital data model (DEM) advancements.

Features: Explores various theoretical, practical, and real-world applications of system analysis, design, and planning of urban water infrastructures + Discusses hydrology, hydraulics, and basic laws of water flow movement through natural and constructed environments + Describes a wide range of novel topics ranging from water assets, water economics, systems analysis, risk, reliability, and disaster management + Examines the details of hydrologic and hydrodynamic modeling and simulation of conceptual and data-driven models + Delineates flood resiliency, environmental visualization, pattern recognition, and machine learning attributes + Explores a compilation of tools and emerging techniques that elevate the reader to a higher plateau in water and environmental systems management.

Water Systems Analysis, Design, and Planning: Urban Infrastructure serves as a useful resource for advanced undergraduate and graduate students taking courses in the areas of water resources and systems analysis, as well as practicing engineers and landscape professionals.

PLAXIS 2D CONNECT Edition V22 Update 1 [Size: 2.4 GB] ... PLAXIS 2D is a powerful and user friendly finite element package intended for two-dimensional analysis of deformation and stability in geotechnical engineering and rock mechanics. PLAXIS is used worldwide by top engineering companies and institutions in the civil and geotechnical engineering industry. Applications range from excavations, embankment and foundations to tunnelling, mining and reservoir geomechanics.

PLAXIS is equipped with a broad range of advanced features to model a diverse range of geotechnical problems, all from within a single integrated software package. PLAXIS uses predefined structural elements and loading types in a CAD-like environment. This empowers the user with fast and efficient model creation, allowing more time to interpret the results.

Since PLAXIS V22 Update 1 also contains the new data structure of the material database and the more flexible and more robust way of handling project units introduced in the previous release, similar precautions apply with respect to V21 release compatibility. PLAXIS V22 Update 1 will be installed alongside PLAXIS V21, instead of overwriting it. Calculated V21 projects opened with this latest release will automatically be saved as a converted copy with the _converted suffix. After the conversion, remeshing and recalculation are required. In this case, the original V21 project will remain unchanged. For V21 projects that only have their geometry and/or some material sets defined and may be either meshed or not, these projects will be opened by V22 Update 1 without converting to a saved copy. The original V21 project would be overwritten upon saving.

The known issue that caused the assignment of the material factor labels to the material models parameters to be lost, when a V21 project containing Design Approaches is opened with V22 is now fixed in the latest release. Note that these converted projects are stored in the file format for PLAXIS V22 Update 1, this means that earlier versions of PLAXIS will not be able to open the converted project files. To continue using V21, users can just open the original V21 project.

This book introduces the applications, theory, and algorithms of linear and nonlinear optimization, with an emphasis on the practical aspects of the material. Its unique modular structure provides flexibility to accommodate the varying needs of instructors, students, and practitioners with different levels of sophistication in these topics. The succinct style of this second edition is punctuated with numerous real-life examples and exercises, and the authors include accessible explanations of topics that are not often mentioned in textbooks, such as duality in nonlinear optimization, primal-dual methods for nonlinear optimization, filter methods, and applications such as support-vector machines. Part I of Linear and Nonlinear Optimization, Second Edition provides fundamentals that can be taught in whole or in part at the beginning of a course on either topic and then referred to as needed. Part II on linear programming and Part III on unconstrained optimization can be used together or separately, and Part IV on nonlinear optimization can be taught without having studied the material in Part II. In the preface the authors suggest course outlines that can be adjusted to the requirements of a particular course on both linear and nonlinear optimization, or to separate courses on these topics. Three appendices provide information on linear algebra, other fundamentals, and software packages for optimization problems. A supplemental website offers auxiliary data sets that are necessary for some of the exercises.

Audience: This book is primarily intended for use in linear and nonlinear optimization courses for advanced undergraduate and graduate students. It is also appropriate as a tutorial for researchers and practitioners who need to understand the modern algorithms of linear and nonlinear optimization to apply them to problems in science and engineering.
