Affine Connections for the Cartesian Stiffness Matrix
 In IEEE Int. Conf. Robotics and Automation
, 1997
"... In this paper, we study the 6 \Theta 6 Cartesian stiffness matrix. We show that the stiffness of a rigid body subjected to conservative forces and moments is described by a (0; 2) tensor which is the Hessian of the potential function. The key observation of the paper is that since the Hessian depend ..."

The propagation of axial waves in nonlinear elastic rods is studied using three different Galerkin Finite Element schemes. The nonlinearity is introduced using the Murnaghan strain energy function and the equations governing the dynamics of the rod are derived assuming linear kinematics. A nonlinear SemiDiscrete Galerkin Finite Element model with Newmark time integration and NewtonRaphson iteration in the Galerkin spatial approximation, TaylorGalerkin schemes derived using Pade ́ approximations and Generalized Galerkin Finite Element schemes with quadratic time interpolation are developed for the nonlinear wave equation. The propagation of axial waves in fixedfree rods generated by an impulsive external load at the free end is studied using these Finite Element models and their relative advantages and disadvantages are discussed.

Recovering Mesh Geometry from a Stiffness Matrix
"... A problem that has not been studied in the literature is the recovery of the mesh geometry from which a given stiffness matrix originates. In this formulation, this is an illposed, inverse problem, in the sense that there are many partial differential equations (PDEs) whose discretization on differ ..."
