A parallel finite element contact/impact algorithm for nonlinear explicit transient analysis. I: The search algorithm and contact mechanics. II: Parallel implementation. (English) Zbl 0789.73073
A contact algorithm has been developed and implemented in a nonlinear dynamic explicit finite element program to analyse the response of three- dimensional shell structures. The contact search algorithm accounts for initial contact, sliding, and release through the use of a parametric representation of the motion of points located on the surface of the structure combined with a contact surface representation which approximates the actual surface by means of triangular search planes. The parallel implementation of this contact algorithm and its performance on a 128-processor distributed-memory multiprocessor computer is discussed.
