Sensitivity Analysis of Quality of B-spline Parameterization on Isogeometric Analysis
Keywords:Isogeometric analysis, B-spline, parameterization, first fundamental matrix
Isogeometric analysis (IGA) is a mesh free technique which make use of B-spline basis functions for geometry and field variable representation. Parameterization of B-spline for IGA is the counterpart of meshing as in finite element method (FEM). The objective of parameterization is to find the optimum set of control points for B-spline modelling. The position of control points of a B-spline model has huge effect on IGA results. In this work, the effect of B-spline parameterization on IGA result is presented. One dimensional case of bar with self-weight is solved and compared with exact analytical solution. First fundamental matrix is used as evaluation metric to check the quality of parameterization for 2-D domains. A heat conduction problem of a square domain is presented to study the parameterization effect for 2-D case.
