    Abstract

    We introduce space-time computation techniques with continuous representation in time (ST-C), using temporal NURBS basis functions. This gives us a temporally smooth, NURBS-based solution, which is desirable in some cases, and a more efficient way of dealing with the computed data. We propose two versions of ST-C. In the first version, the smooth solution is extracted by projection from a solution computed with a different temporal representation, typically a discontinuous one. We use a successive projection technique with a small number of temporal NURBS basis functions at each projection, and therefore the extraction can take place as the solution with discontinuous temporal representation is being computed, without storing a large amount of time-history data. This version is not limited to solutions computed with ST techniques. In the second version, the solution with continuous temporal representation is computed directly by using a small number of temporal NURBS basis functions in the variational formulation associated with each time step.
