ADINA in Exciting Areas of Research

ADINA is very widely used in diverse areas of exciting research. To highlight these areas and provide our users with easy access to related publications, we listed many papers on studies in which ADINA was used on the ADINA Publications page. Recently, we have updated this page and added more than 100 new papers on the usage of ADINA in many exciting studies:

  • Alternative Energy, Nanotechnology and MEMS: Fuel cell, wind turbine, space solar cell, atomic force microscopy, nano-indentation, micro roughness for drag reduction, micropumps, etc.

  • Biomechanics, Biomedical and Biotechnology: Cell and tissue mechanics, cardiovascular, orthopedic, eye disease, contact lens, drug delivery, ventricular assist devices, spine, carpal tunnel, implant/prosthetic design, meniscus replacement, lung, vessel remodeling, vocal fold, bioreactor, mitral valve leaflet, etc.

  • Civil (Structural/Geotechnical): Borehole stability, dam-reservoir interaction, slope stability, composite concrete-steel frames, historic masonry structures, tunnels, buried pipeline subject to earthquake, interfacial debonding in reinforced concrete, pile-soil interaction, reservoir landslide, hydrofracture, modeling tsunami, etc.

  • Mechanics and Materials: Laser deposition, microstructure modification, passive vibration control, fiber-reinforced composites, delamination, fracture mechanics, friction welding, journal bearing, metal forming, thermomechanics of rocket nozzles, piping systems, stiffened plates, dynamics of liquid storage tanks, nuclear power plants, cohesive zone, etc.

The comprehensive capabilities offered in ADINA for simulating Structures, Fluids, Fluid-structure Interactions and Multiphysics, are instrumental in the success of these researches.
