Explicit high-order generalized-α methods for isogeometric analysis of structural dynamics

by   Pouria Behnoudfar, et al.

We propose a new family of high-order explicit generalized-α methods for hyperbolic problems with the feature of dissipation control. Our approach delivers 2k, (k ∈ℕ) accuracy order in time by solving k matrix systems explicitly and updating the other 2k variables at each time-step. The user can control the numerical dissipation in the discrete spectrum's high-frequency regions by adjusting the method's coefficients. We study the method's spectrum behaviour and show that the CFL condition is independent of the accuracy order. The stability region remains invariant while we increase the accuracy order. Next, we exploit efficient preconditioners for the isogeometric matrix to minimize the computational cost. These preconditioners use a diagonal-scaled Kronecker product of univariate parametric mass matrices; they have a robust performance with respect to the spline degree and the mesh size, and their decomposition structure implies that their application is faster than a matrix-vector product involving the fully-assembled mass matrix. Our high-order schemes require simple modifications of the available implementations of the generalized-α method. Finally, we present numerical examples demonstrating the methodology's performance regarding single- and multi-patch IGA discretizations.
