Pellizzer et al. [2[2] Pellizzer, G.P., Kroetz, H.M., Leonel, E.D., Beck, A.T. (2020). Time-dependent reliability of reinforced concrete considering chloride penetration via boundary element method. Latin American Journal of Solids and Structures. 17(8), e316. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/1679-78255885
http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/1679-78255885...
] discussed the time-dependent reliability of reinforced concrete considering the boundary element method. Corrosion of reinforcing bars caused by chloride ions is one of the main pathological manifestations. Therefore, the time-variant reliability problem is solved using Monte Carlo simulation with several applications.

The exact solution for the buckling problem of cylindrical panels have been presented by Soares et al. [3[3] Soares, P.T.M.L., Santana, R.C., Lucena Neto, E., Monteiro, F.A.C., Souza Neto, A.F., Queiroz, P.I.B. (2020).

http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/1679-78255903...
]. These structures have frames attached to the circular edges. The boundary conditions differ from the classical simply supported ones, often assumed for design purposes, in the sense that the torsion resisted by the frames are also taken into account. Results are reported for valuable benchmarks in future studies.

Anisotropic damage propagation has been presented by Petrini et al. [4[4] Petrini, A.L.E.R., Boldrini, J.L., Bittencourt, M.L. (2020). A Thermodynamically Consistent Phase Field Framework for Anisotropic Damage Propagation. Latin American Journal of Solids and Structures. 17(8), e314. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/1679-78255959

The simulations showed that the model can reproduce the expected crack propagation pattern for materials with one and two preferential directions.

The primary purpose of the research is to demonstrate the checkerboard-free property of the generalized finite-volume theory. The topology optimization algorithms is performed by using a mesh independent filter, that regularizes the subvolume sensitivities, providing optimum topologies that avoid the mesh dependence and length scale issues by minimizing the formation of local paths.
