Mixed finite element analysis of semi-coercive unilateral contact problems with given friction

Ivan Hlaváček (2007)

Applications of Mathematics

Similarity:

A unilateral contact 2D-problem is considered provided one of two elastic bodies can shift in a given direction as a rigid body. Using Lagrange multipliers for both normal and tangential constraints on the contact interface, we introduce a saddle point problem and prove its unique solvability. We discretize the problem by a standard finite element method and prove a convergence of approximations. We propose a numerical realization on the basis of an auxiliary “bolted” problem and the...

Finite element analysis of the Signorini problem in semi-coercive cases

Similarity:

The plane Signorini problem is considered in the cases, when there exist non-trivial rigid admissible displacements. The existence and uniqueness of the solution and the convergence of piecewise linear finite element approximations is discussed.

On finite element uniqueness studies for Coulombs frictional contact model

Patrick Hild (2002)

International Journal of Applied Mathematics and Computer Science

Similarity:

We are interested in the finite element approximation of Coulomb's frictional unilateral contact problem in linear elasticity. Using a mixed finite element method and an appropriate regularization, it becomes possible to prove existence and uniqueness when the friction coefficient is less than Cε^{2}|log(h)|^{-1}, where h and ε denote the discretization and regularization parameters, respectively. This bound converging very slowly towards 0 when h decreases (in comparison with the already...

Mixed finite element approximation of 3D contact problems with given friction : error analysis and numerical realization

Jaroslav Haslinger, Taoufik Sassi (2004)

ESAIM: Mathematical Modelling and Numerical Analysis - Modélisation Mathématique et Analyse Numérique

Similarity:

This contribution deals with a mixed variational formulation of 3D contact problems with the simplest model involving friction. This formulation is based on a dualization of the set of admissible displacements and the regularization of the non-differentiable term. Displacements are approximated by piecewise linear elements while the respective dual variables by piecewise constant functions on a dual partition of the contact zone. The rate of convergence is established provided that the...

Least square method for solving contact problems with friction obeying the Coulomb law

Jaroslav Haslinger (1984)

Aplikace matematiky

Similarity:

The paper deals with numerical realization of contact problems with friction obeying the Coulomb law. The original problem is formulated as the fixed-point problem for a certain operator generated by the variational inequality. This inequality is transformed to a system of variational nonlinear equations generating other operators, in a sense "close" to the above one. The fixed-point problem of these operators is solved by the least-square method in which equations and the corresponding...

A sign preserving mixed finite element approximation for contact problems

Patrick Hild (2011)

International Journal of Applied Mathematics and Computer Science

Similarity:

This paper is concerned with the frictionless unilateral contact problem (i.e., a Signorini problem with the elasticity operator). We consider a mixed finite element method in which the unknowns are the displacement field and the contact pressure. The particularity of the method is that it furnishes a normal displacement field and a contact pressure satisfying the sign conditions of the continuous problem. The a priori error analysis of the method is closely linked with the study of...
