Research aim and objectives
Collocation methods applied to continuum mechanics.
Thibault joined the Legato Team in 2016 as a PhD Student under Stéphane Bordas’ supervision. His work focuses on the use of collocation methods to solve mechanical problems. A wide variety of methods have been analysed as part of his project including the Generalized Finite Difference (GFD), the Discretization-Corrected Particle Strength Exchange (DC PSE), the Moving Least Square (MLS) or the Radial Basis-Finite Difference (RBF-FD). He now primarily focusses on the GFD method applied to large three-dimensional problems. His goal is to improve the stability of the method and to apply it to singular problems using an adaptative discretization of the domain.
