    • Because of their widely generalized use in many industries, composites are the subject of many research campaigns. More particularly, the development of both accurate and flexible numerical models able to capture their intrinsically multiscale modes of failure is still a challenge. The standard finite element method typically requires intensive remeshing to adequately capture the geometry of the cracks and high accuracy is thus often sacrificed in favor of scalability, and vice versa. In an effort to preserve both properties, we present here an extended finite element method (XFEM) for large scale composite fracture simulations. In this formulation, the standard FEM formulation is partially enriched by use of shifted Heaviside functions with special attention paid to the scalability of the scheme. This enrichment technique offers several benefits since the interpolation property of the standard shape function still holds at the nodes. Those benefits include (i) no extra boundary condition for the enrichment degree of freedom, and (ii) no need for transition/blending regions; both of which contribute to maintaining the scalability of the code.Two different cohesive zone models (CZM) are then adopted to capture the physics of the crack propagation mechanisms. At the intralaminar level, an extrinsic CZM embedded in the XFEM formulation is used. At the interlaminar level, an intrinsic CZM is adopted for predicting the failure. The overall framework is implemented in ALYA, a mechanics code specifically developed for large scale, massively parallel simulations of coupled multi-physics problems. The implementation of both intrinsic and extrinsic CZM models within the code is such that it conserves the extremely efficient scalability of ALYA while providing accurate physical simulations of computationally expensive phenomena. The strong scalability provided by the proposed implementation is demonstrated. The model is ultimately validated against a full experimental campaign of loading tests and X-ray tomography analyzes.

  • Alya : Computational Solid Mechanics for Supercomputers

    • While solid mechanics codes are now conventional tools both in industry and research, the increasingly more exigent requirements of both sectors are fuelling the need for more computational power and more advanced algorithms. For obvious reasons, commercial codes are lagging behind academic codes often dedicated either to the implementation of one new technique, or the upscaling of current conventional codes to tackle massively large scale computational problems. Only in a few cases, both approaches have been followed simultaneously. In this article, a solid mechanics simulation strategy for parallel supercomputers based on a hybrid approach is presented. Hybrid parallelization exploits the thread-level parallelism of multicore architectures, combining MPI tasks with OpenMP threads. This paper describes the proposed strategy, programmed in Alya, a parallel multi-physics code. Hybrid parallelization is specially well suited for the current trend of supercomputers, namely large clusters of multicores. The strategy is assessed through transient non-linear solid mechanics problems, both for explicit and implicit schemes, running on thousands of cores. In order to demonstrate the flexibility of the proposed strategy under advance algorithmic evolution of computational mechanics, a non-local parallel overset meshes method (Chimera-like) is implemented and the conservation of the scalability is demonstrated.

  • HPC compact quasi-Newton algorithm for interface problems

    • In this work we present a robust interface coupling algorithm called Compact Interface quasi-Newton (CIQN). It is designed for computationally intensive applications using an MPI multi-code partitioned scheme. The algorithm allows to reuse information from previous time steps, feature that has been previously proposed to accelerate convergence. Through algebraic manipulation, an efficient usage of the computational resources is achieved by: avoiding construction of dense matrices and reduce every multiplication to a matrix–vector product and reusing the computationally expensive loops. This leads to a compact version of the original quasi-Newton algorithm. Altogether with an efficient communication, in this paper we show an efficient scalability up to 4800 cores. Three examples with qualitatively different dynamics are shown to prove that the algorithm can efficiently deal with added mass instability and two-field coupled problems. We also show how reusing histories and filtering does not necessarily makes a more robust scheme and, finally, we prove the necessity of this HPC version of the algorithm. The novelty of this article lies in the HPC focused implementation of the algorithm, detailing how to fuse and combine the composing blocks to obtain an scalable MPI implementation. Such an implementation is mandatory in large scale cases, for which the contact surface cannot be stored in a single computational node, or the number of contact nodes is not negligible compared with the size of the domain.
