Abstract

Proper generalized decomposition (PGD) is often used for multiquery and fast-response simulations. It is a powerful tool alleviating the curse of dimensionality affecting multiparametric partial differential equations. Most implementations of PGD are intrusive extensions based on in-house developed FE solvers. In this work, we propose a nonintrusive PGD scheme using off-the-shelf FE codes (such as certified commercial software) as an external solver. The scheme is implemented and monitored by in-house flow-control codes. A typical implementation is provided with downloadable codes. Moreover, a novel parametric separation strategy for the PGD resolution is presented. The parametric space is split into two- or three-dimensional subspaces, to allow PGD technique solving problems with constrained parametric spaces, achieving higher convergence ratio. Numerical examples are provided. In particular, a practical example in biomechanics is included, with potential application to patient-specific simulation.
