2.2  Research Activities

The research activity aimed mainly to investigate the structural behavior of composite doubly-curved shells, focusing the attention also to the innovations in the industrial processes for the development of new classes of materials. All the considered theoretical models have been validated by means of numerical applications based on the differential quadrature method. These topics can be included in the macro categories, presented in detail in the following.

 

2.2.1  Structural Mechanics

The research activity in the structural mechanics topic has focused mainly on the analysis of plates and shells made of composite materials. Shell structures occupy an important role in civil, mechanical, architectural, aerospace and naval engineering. The wide use of shells in engineering is due to several advantages. These structures show an extraordinary efficiency in bearing with external loads, a high degree of resistance, good stiffness and a high strength-to-weight ratio. For these reasons, doubly-curved shells have been the main topic of several researches from 1940 up to date.

A shell is a three-dimensional solid that can be studied with the classical theory of elasticity. However, the calculations based on this kind of theory could be computationally burdensome, since these models require a huge number of degrees of freedom. The initial three-dimensional problem is reduced to a two-dimensional one defined on the middle surface of the structure through the introduction of appropriate hypotheses. In addition to the classic theory of elasticity (3D Elasticity), several Higher-order Shear Deformation Theories (HSDTs), characterized by different kinematic models, have been developed and analyzed. The theoretical framework on which these theories are based is given by the so-called Carrera Unified Formulation (CUF). The formulation in hand has allowed the study and the consequent implementation in a computational code of two different approaches to deal with composite doubly-curved shells: the Equivalent Single Layer (ESL) and the Layer-Wise (LW). The first approach uses a kinematic expansion of the generalized displacements referred to the shell middle surface; the second one, instead, considers the displacements on the lower and upper surfaces of each layer that composes the laminate as main degrees of freedom, whereas the intermediate displacements represent the kinematic expansion of the model. It is important to remind that the CUF includes also most of the classical theories, such as the Classical Shell Theories (CSTs) and the First-order Shear Deformation Theories (FSDTs). Examples of these approaches are the Kirchhoff-Love and Reissner-Mindlin theories, respectively.

The geometries under investigation includes doubly-curved shells and panels (shells of revolution and shells of translations), singly-curved shells (conical, cylindrical and spherical shells), and degenerate shells (circular and rectangular plates). By means of the differential geometry, it has been possible to evaluate all the geometric parameters involved in the governing equations of the considered structures. In the more general circumstance of arbitrarily-shaped shells, the coefficients at issues, such as the main radii of curvature, have been defined in a principal and orthogonal curvilinear coordinate system. In addition, free-form shells and panels have been investigated. Their peculiar shapes have been mathematically defined by means of the so-called Bézier curves.

The structural theories that describe the mechanical behavior of a singly-curved shell of translation are used also to deduce the corresponding higher-order theories for planar beams with curvilinear axis made of composite materials. The Carrera Unified Formulation still represents the theoretical framework of the theories at issue. Nevertheless, the expansion along the width coordinate has been neglected in order to analyze arches and beams characterized by variable cross-sections and curvatures.

The validity of these models has been proven by many numerical applications, in terms of dynamic and static behavior. In particular, a posteriory stress and strain recovery procedure has been developed for the static analysis. This procedure has allowed to obtain useful results for the structural design, by using the three-dimensional elasticity equations. This aims at avoiding the delamination, an issue that typically affects laminated composites. All the results have been accomplished by means of a MATLAB code and can be easily obtained again. The comparison with the values obtained by some commercial codes, such as Ansys, Nastran, Abaqus, Femap, VisualNastran Desktop, Pro\Engineer and Straus, has allowed to prove the validity of the considered structural models.

2.2.2  Innovative and Smart Materials

Due to the recent noticeably developments in the material sectors, peculiar attention has been given to the study of innovative materials, such as Functionally Graded Materials (FGMs), which allows to define variable mechanical properties along the shell thickness. In particular, three different distributions have been considered to define the volume fraction of their constituents: a five-parameter power law, the Weibull distribution and an exponential distribution. The effect of the variation of the parameters that characterize these laws on the natural frequencies, as well as on the static response, has been investigated by means of several numerical applications. The theory of mixture and the Mori-Tanaka scheme have been used to evaluate the overall mechanical properties of the FGMs.

Composites reinforced by Carbon Nanotubes (CNTs) are another example of the application of innovative materials. It is possible, in fact, to improve the mechanical behavior of the structures in terms of stiffness and strength by inserting these nanoparticles within the layers.

Finally, the so-called Variable Angle Tow (VAT) composites have been investigated in the field of the innovative materials. These composites are characterized by variable mechanical properties within the reference domain. In particular, these materials allow to design more efficiently the mechanical properties of a composite layer, in order to improve the mechanical response of a structure. The mathematical description of the variable properties has been obtained by means of a general law that is able to define the curvilinear paths of the reinforcing fibers. Several parametric studies have been performed to investigate the effect of the orientation of the fbers on the dynamic and static responses of plates and shells. The same mathematical formulation has been used also to characterize the variable thickness of the same structures or directly the mechanical features of the structure in terms of elastic coefficients.

2.2.3  Computational Mechanics and Numerical Techniques

As far as the topic of numerical methods is concerned, the Generalized Differential Quadrature (GDQ) method has been investigated and proposed as an alternative to the classical schemes, such as the finite differences or the finite element methods. The GDQ method has been developed by Shu to improve the differential quadrature approach proposed by Bellman in the Seventies. In particular, several approaches able to evaluate the weighting coefficients required to approximate the derivatives of any order have been investigated. To this aim, the differential quadrature based on the Lagrange Polynomials (Polynomial Differential Quadrature or PDQ) and the one based on the Fourier expansion (Harmonic Differential Quadrature or HDQ) have been considered.

It is well-known that the various approaches available in the literature are characterized by the use of different basis functions for the functional approximation and different grid point distributions required to define the position of the discrete points within the reference domain. For this purpose, a general approach able to evaluate the weighting coefficients for different basis functions and discrete distributions has been proposed. In addition, the expressions of the main basis functions, as well as the grid point distributions, have been presented. The class of Radial Basis Functions (RBFs) has been also used as basis functions. These functions, in fact, depend on the radial distance among the discrete nodes of the domain. All these approaches can be employed also in local form to reduce the computational cost. The Local Generalized Differential Quadrature (LGDQ) method have been developed for this purpose.

Moreover, a numerical integration procedure that employes the weighting coefficients evaluated for the differential quadrature has been developed, since many applications require the evaluation of integrals. Thus, the Generalized Integral Quadrature (GIQ) method, developed by Shu as the counterpart of the GDQ, has been considered to this aim. Even this technique can be used taking into account various basis functions and grid distributions. In order to emphasieze this aspect, different classical integration schemes have been considered, such as the trapezoidal rule or the Simpson’s method. In addition, the general approaches for the differential and integral quadrature methods can be easily extended to multi-dimensional cases. A simple and compact mathematical formulation for the evaluation of the weighting coeffiecients has been developed to this aim. Finally, the accuracy of the GDQ and GIQ methods has been proven by several numerical applications in the structural field.

Generally, practical engineering problems are complex due to geometry, material and load discontinuities. It is necessary, for solving them, to divide the whole domain using finite elements of arbitrary shape. These subdomains can be reasonably called finite elements due to the evident analogy with the FEM techniques. The necessity of studying arbitrarily shaped domains or domains characterized by mechanical and geometrical discontinuities leads to the development of a new numerical approach that divide the structure in finite elements and the strong form of the fundamental equations is solved inside each element. The fundamental aspects of this technique, named Strong Formulation Finite Element Method (SFEM), have been discussed. The starting point is the differential quadrature method. The mapping technique, used also in the finite element methods, transforms an arbitrarily shaped element into a regular element (computational element). In other words, the SFEM means a numerical procedure that divides the physical domain in finite elements and uses the differential quadrature to solve the strong form equations inside each element mapped into the computational space. This approach differs from the classical Finite Element Method (FEM) because the problem at the element level is solved using the weak (or variational) formulation. Several practical applications regarding the static and dynamic behavior of plates, membranes and plane stress and strain states are reported to study the convergence and stability characteristics and reliability of this numerical technique.

Conoscenze di base di Algebra e Geometria, di Scienza delle Costruzioni, Complementi di Scienza delle Costruzioni e di Calcolo Numerico.

Il corso si propone di fornire allo studente le conoscenze di base nell'ambito di alcuni metodi classici di meccanica computazionale. In particolare, partendo dal classico metodo agli spostamenti per travi e telai piani, si svilupperà il metodo degli elementi finiti per travi non deformabili a taglio e deformabili a taglio. Si passerà quindi allo sviluppo di elementi finiti per problemi al continuo bidimensionali. Nell'ambito delle strutture bidimensionali si forniranno le basi per lo studio di elementi strutturali doppiamente curvi in materiale composito. Verranno presentate sia la formulazione in forma debole che la formulazione in forma forte per aste, travi, membrane, piastre e gusci.

Dopo il corso lo studente è in grado di
*Classificare una struttura e definirne un modello matematico.
*Risolvere una struttura e individuare i suoi punti più sollecitati mediante programmi ad elementi finiti.
*Conoscere i concetti fondamentali applicativi e teorici previsti dal programma.

Lezioni ed esercitazioni frontali.

E’ prevista di norma una prova orale con discussione degli elaborati assegnati durante il corso.

- Introduzione al corso.

- Sistemi discreti.

- Matrice di rigidezza per aste, sistemi di aste e travature reticolari.

- Matrice di rigidezza a flessione e a torsione.

- Travi spaziali e telai piani.

- Elementi finiti bidimensionali.

- Considerazioni di dinamica e principio di Hamilton.

- Derivazione e integrazione numerica.

- Spazio dei polinomi e approssimazione funzionale.

- Strutture bidimensionali doppiamente curve in materiale composito.

- Formulazione forte e debole per differenti elementi strutturali.

Il corso fornisce i fondamenti della statica e cinematica dei solidi deformabili e delle strutture. In particolare si trattano strutture composte da travi e sistemi di travi e si si forniscono allo studente i mezzi per la verifica di esse. Assegnati i carichi e la geometria, lo studente deve essere in grado di tracciare i diagrammi delle sollecitazioni e valutare lo spostamento in una sezione assegnata e lo stato di tensione in un punto generico nell’ipotesi che esse si comportino in maniera elastica lineare. Si intende pertanto fornire gli strumenti fondamentali al progetto e verifica delle strutture reali.

Dopo il corso lo studente è in grado di
*Classificare una struttura.
*Risolvere una struttura, diagrammare le caratteristiche della sollecitazione e la deformata qualitativa, e individuare i suoi punti più sollecitati.
*Conoscere i concetti fondamentali applicativi e teorici previsti dal programma.

Lezioni ed esercitazioni frontali.

E’ prevista di norma una prova scritta ed una prova orale.

- Introduzione al corso.

- Formulazione e Soluzione di un Problema Strutturale.

- Analisi statica e cinematica delle strutture piane.

- Caratteristiche della sollecitazione.

- Strutture reticolari piane.
