This webinar is hosted by University of Liverpool and sponsored by Optum CE.
The finite element method (FEM) is the most popular computational tool for analysing the behaviour of many complex engineering problems. The adaptive strategies have been developed to improve the accuracy as well as the efficiency of the FEM or to eliminate possible mesh distortion due to large deformations. In this webinar, Majid will present recent advances in the adaptive FEM strategies as well as their application in a wide range of problems including, but not limited to, soil-structure interaction, dynamics of two- and multi-phase media and penetration problems. Current challenges and future work in this area will also be discussed.
