For the next event in the Aerospace PhD Seminar Series, we will have the pleasure of hosting Prof. Luciano Demasi from San Diego State University.

The event will take place in the Salón de Grado on Tuesday 29 March at 1pm, and will be streamed.

PhD Aerospace Seminar – Luciano Demasi
Prof. Luciano Demasi is an AIAA Associate Fellow and professor at the San Diego State University (San Diego, California, USA). His research interests cover the areas of aerodynamics, aeroelasticity, structural dynamics, and modeling of composites. He received his Ph. D. in 2004 from Politecnico di Torino (Italy).

“Partitioned Parametrized Variational Procedure for the Generation of Theorems of Structural Analysis”

Abstract: Structural field modeling of displacements, stresses, and strains is conceptually linked with the generation of functionals. In particular, this talk introduces the Partitioned Parametrized Variational Procedure (PPVP). In-plane stresses and strains are mathematically treated differently than the transverse counterparts. This allows one to generate all the classical variational theorems of elasticity (such as the Principles of Virtual Displacements and Complementary Energy, Hellinger-Reissner, and the Veubeke-Hu-Washizu theorems) and additional new types of variational theorems which can be exploited for the solution of  structural problems in various areas, such as  reinforced panels and variable angle tow composites. With this variational procedure energetically consistent constraints naturally arise directly from the formulation. PPVP could also be used to formulate new enhancements of the finite element or meshless methods and to quantify functional errors not related to the numerical discretization.

The seminars will begin at 13 CEST and will take place in the Auditorium Salon de Grados (Padre Soler) campus of Leganés.
No previous registration is required.
