A multilevel Monte Carlo method for asymptotic-preserving particle schemes in the diffusive limit KU Leuven
This paper presents an efficient approach for the modal analysis of coupled soil-structure systems, for which the dynamic response is strongly influenced by the embedment in the soil. The methodology is based on a finite element-perfectly matched layer model that allows for the derivation of frequency-independent system matrices and the computation of the modal properties of the coupled system. This is achieved by solving a nonlinear ...

During recent years, thorough experimental and numerical investigations have led to an improved understanding of dynamic phenomena affecting the fatigue life and survivability of offshore structures, e.g., ringing and springing and extreme wave impacts. However, most of these efforts have focused on modeling either selected extreme events or sequences of highly nonlinear waves impacting offshore structures, possibly overestimating the actual ...
