Adaptive Remeshing Technique in Discrete Models of Random Geometry


Article Preview

The adaptive discretization technique for static discrete models of random geometry based on Voronoi cells is developed here. It is based on adding randomly located nodes into the highly stressed regions and updating the discretization based on those nodes before the crack may initiate in or propagate through the regions.
