The EPFL School of continuing education presents a short course on the
extended finite element method (XFEM) taking place Dec. 7-9 2005, in
Program web page : http://continuing-education.epfl.ch/X-FEM
Registration form : http://registration.epfl.ch/index.php?form=XFEMREGISTR1
This course is of interest to those in aeronautics, automotive industry,
transport, mechanical, civil and nuclear industries, and to all interested
in numerical methods for engineering.
The XFEM is a novel numerical method which extends the standard finite
element method and allows handling problems with interfaces and
singularities (fluid-fluid, fluid-solid, solid-solid, etc.) to be solved
without meshing/remeshing the interface as it evolves. Examples of
applications include fracture mechanics multiphase flows, solidification
problems, microstructure modeling, material interfaces, bio-engineering,
The course will start from the basics so as to be understandable by all. In
addition, examples will be presented, including real-world problems such as
the damage tolerance assessment of a Boeing 757 door, fluid-structure
interaction problems, and biofilm growth.
Hands-on applications will allow the participants to implement the method
themselves, with the guidance of the instructors.
A round table is organized so as to facilitate communication between the
participants, and stimulate the exchange of ideas. This round table will be
moderated by Assistant Professor Anthony Gravouil, INSA Lyon, France.
Class notes, including a complete bibliography on the method will be given
to the participants.
Generic Libraries to Support FEM Applications, a talk by Peter Gottschling
(Matrix Template Library) will open the course.
