Description: PENGoLINS (PENalty-based GLuing of Isogeometric Non-matching Shells) is an open-source Python library for penalty of non-matching Kirchhoff–Love shells using a FEniCS-based implementation of isogeometric analysis (IGA) called tIGAr. Users can directly perform shell structure analysis on CAD models, in STEP or IGES format, consisting of multiple B-spline/NURBS patches with non-matching parametrizations at their intersections. The pythonOCC, a Python interface of OpenCASCADE, is leveraged for computation of surface-surface intersections, where displacement and rotational continuities are maintained using penalty method. Furthermore, this library can be extended to fluid-structure interaction (FSI) and nonlocal contact analysis by integrating with existing open-source Python frameworks, viz., VarMINT, ShNAPr and CouDALFISh. Coupling between separately-parametrized patches uses a modification of the penalty formulation proposed by Herrema et al., which is verified using several benchmark problems. Applications to aerospace structures and prosthetic heart values are demonstrated in this documentation.
