Multi-scale modeling and simulation on buckling and wrinkling phenomena

Abstract : The main aim of this thesis is to develop advanced and efficient multi-scale modeling and simulation techniques to study instability phenomena in three common engineering structures, i.e., membrane, film/substrate and sandwich structures, by combining the Technique of Slowly Variable Fourier Coefficients (TSVFC) and the Asymptotic Numerical Method (ANM). Towards this end, based on the Von Karman plate equations, the TSVFC has been firstly used to develop a two-dimensional (2D) Fourier double-scale model for membrane, which has also been implemented into ABAQUS via its subroutine UEL. Then a 2D Fourier model is constructed for film/substrate. Further, making use of deformation features of the film/substrate, a 1D Fourier model is developed by using both the TSVFC and the Carrera’s Unified Formulation (CUF). Subsequently, based on high-order kinematics belonging to Zig-Zag theory, a 2D Fourier model is deduced for sandwich plate. The governing equations for the above models are discretized by the Finite Element Method, and the resulting nonlinear systems are solved by the efficient and robust nonlinear solver ANM. These models are then adopted to study instabilities in these structures. Results show that the established models could accurately and efficiently simulate various instability phenomena. Besides, it’s found that the membrane instability is very sensitive to boundary conditions, and there exists a dimensionless parameter that is almost constant near bifurcation point for various loading cases and geometric parameters, which may be helpful for fast predicting the occurrence of wrinkles
