The present contribution investigates shape optimisation problems for a class of semilinear elliptic variational inequalities with Neumann boundary conditions. Sensitivity estimates and material derivatives are firstly derived in an abstract operator setting where the operators are defined on polyhedral subsets of reflexive Banach spaces. The resul...
Article
In this work we investigate a phase field model for damage processes in two-dimensional viscoelastic media with nonhomogeneous Neumann data describing external boundary forces. In the first part we establish global-in-time existence, uniqueness, a priori estimates and continuous dependence of strong solutions on the data.The main difficulty is caus...
Article
Controlling the growth of material damage is an important engineering task with plenty of real world applications. In this paper we approach this topic from the mathematical point of view by investigating an optimal boundary control problem for a damage phase-field model for viscoelastic media. We consider non-homogeneous Neumann data for the displ...
Article
Full-text available
A typical phase field approach for describing phase separation and coarsening phenomena in alloys is the Cahn-Hilliard model. This model has been generalized to the so-called Cahn-Larché system by combining it with elasticity to capture non-neglecting deformation phenomena, which occur during phase separation and coarsening processes in the materia...
Article
In this paper, we prove existence of global in time weak solutions for a highly nonlinear PDE system arising in the context of damage phenomena in thermoviscoelastic materials. The main novelty of the present contribution with respect to the ones already present in the literature consists in the possibility of taking into account a damage-dependent...
Article
Full-text available
In this paper we study a model for phase separation and damage in thermoviscoelastic materials. The main novelty of the paper consists in the fact that, in contrast with previous works in the literature (cf., e.g., [C. Heinemann, C. Kraus: Existence results of weak solutions for Cahn-Hilliard systems coupled with elasticity and damage. Adv. Math. S...
Article
Full-text available
In this paper, we consider a coupled PDE system describing phase separation and damage phenomena in elastically stressed alloys in the presence of inertial effects. The material is considered on a bounded Lipschitz domain with mixed boundary conditions for the displacement variable. The main aim of this work is to establish existence of weak soluti...
Article
In this work, we analytically investigate a degenerating PDE system for phase separation and complete damage processes considered on a nonsmooth time-dependent domain with mixed boundary conditions. The evolution of the system is described by a degenerating Cahn–Hilliard equation for the concentration, a doubly nonlinear differential inclusion for...
Book
The authors explore a unifying model which couples phase separation and damage processes in a system of partial differential equations. The model has technological applications to solder materials where interactions of both phenomena have been observed and cannot be neglected for a realistic description. The equations are derived in a thermodynamic...
Article
The aim of this paper is to prove existence of weak solutions of hyperbolic-parabolic evolution inclusions defined on Lipschitz domains with mixed boundary conditions describing, for instance, damage processes and elasticity with inertia terms. To this end, a suitable weak formulation to deal with such evolution inclusions in a non-smooth setting i...
Article
In this work, we analytically investigate a multi-component system for describing phase separation and damage processes in solids. The model consists of a parabolic diffusion equation of fourth order for the concentration coupled with an elliptic system with material dependent coeffcients for the strain tensor and a doubly nonlinear differential in...
Conference Paper
This paper addresses analytical investigations of degenerating PDE systems for phase separation and damage processes considered on nonsmooth time-dependent domains with mixed boundary conditions for the displacement field. The evolution of the system is described by a degenerating Cahn-Hilliard equation for the concentration, a doubly nonlinear dif...
Article
Full-text available
In this paper, we analytically investigate multi-component Cahn–Hilliard and Allen–Cahn systems which are coupled with elasticity and uni-directional damage processes. The free energy of the system is of the form ∫Ω½Γ∇c : ∇c + ½|∇z|2+W ch(c)+W el(e,c,z)dx with a polynomial or logarithmic chemical energy density W ch, an inhomogeneous elastic energy...
Article
Full-text available
In this work, we introduce a degenerating PDE system with a time-depending domain for complete damage processes under time-varying Dirichlet boundary conditions. The evolution of the system is described by a doubly nonlinear differential inclusion for the damage process and a quasi-static balance equation for the displacement field which are strong...
Conference Paper
In micro-electronic materials such as solder alloys, phase-separation and coarsening as well as damage phenomena occur at the same time and influences each other. In this note, a unifying model which couples multi-component Cahn-Hilliard systems with elasticity and uni-directional damage processes is presented. We outline the equations and their in...
Article
Zusammenfassung In diesem Artikel wird ein agentenbasiertes Modell namens ALIEN für die Simulation selbstorganisierender Systeme eingeführt. Dabei wird die Lebensdauer der Agenten durch Ressourcenknappheit als auch durch degenerative Prozesse so eingeschränkt, dass komplexere Verhaltensmuster zum längeren Fortbestehen notwendig werden. Mit Hilfe vo...
