Workshop: Implementation of Visco-Elasticity with Deal.II [03/2019]
From February to March 2019, a workshop called “Implementation of Visco-Elasticity with Deal.II” took place at IITD. The Chair of Applied Mechanics, FAU, was represented by Dr. Sebastian Pfaller, Benjamin Brands, Christian Burkhardt, Michael Caspari, Ludwig Herrnböck, and Maximilian Ries. In the workshop, the basic aspects of modeling inelastic material behavior, a short introduction into time integration concepts, and the theory of three-dimensional visco-elasticity were introduced. Additionally, scholars examined the visco-elastic problem based on academic examples, using the open-source C++ FE library deal.ii. The current visit was followed by a traditional sightseeing tour and tasting of local delicacies.
