Abstract

top
This paper is devoted to the introduction of a new variant of the extended finite element method (Xfem) for the approximation of elastostatic fracture problems. This variant consists in a reduced basis strategy for the definition of the crack tip enrichment. It is particularly adapted when the asymptotic crack-tip displacement is complex or even unknown. We give a mathematical result of quasi-optimal a priori error estimate and some computational tests including a comparison with some other strategies.
