Capturing Thermal-Stress Waves Via Special Purpose Hybrid Transfinite Elements and Unified Computational Formulations
The present paper represents an attempt to apply extensions of a hybrid transfinite element computational approach for accurately predicting thermoelastic stress waves, A unique feature of the proposed formulations for applicability to the Danilovskaya’s problem of thermal stress waves in elastic solids lies in the hybrid nature of the unified formulations and the development of special purpose transfinite elements in conjunction with the classical Galerkin techniques and transformation concepts. Numerical test cases validate the applicability and superior capability to capture the thermal stress waves induced due to boundary heating.
