𝐴 - 𝑃𝑂𝑆𝑇𝐸𝑅𝐼𝑂𝑅𝐼 error estimates for linear exterior problems 𝑉𝐼𝐴 mixed-FEM and DtN mappings

Mauricio A. Barrientos, Gabriel N. Gatica, Matthias Maischak (2002)

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

In this paper we combine the dual-mixed finite element method with a Dirichlet-to-Neumann mapping (given in terms of a boundary integral operator) to solve linear exterior transmission problems in the plane. As a model we consider a second order elliptic equation in divergence form coupled with the Laplace equation in the exterior unbounded region. We show that the resulting mixed variational formulation and an associated discrete scheme using Raviart-Thomas spaces are well posed, and derive the...

3D monolithic finite element approach for aero-thermics processes in industrial furnaces⋆

E. Hachem, E. Massoni, T. Coupez (2011)

ESAIM: Proceedings

We consider in this paper a mathematical and numerical model to design an industrial software solution able to handle real complex furnaces configurations in terms of geometries, atmospheres, parts positioning, heat generators and physical thermal phenomena. A three dimensional algorithm based on stabilized finite element methods (SFEM) for solving the momentum, energy, turbulence and radiation equations is presented. An immersed volume method (IVM) for thermal coupling of fluids and solids is introduced...

A C1-P2 finite element without nodal basis

Shangyou Zhang (2008)

ESAIM: Mathematical Modelling and Numerical Analysis


A new finite element, which is continuously differentiable, but only piecewise quadratic polynomials on a type of uniform triangulations, is introduced. We construct a local basis which does not involve nodal values nor derivatives. Different from the traditional finite elements, we have to construct a special, averaging operator which is stable and preserves quadratic polynomials. We show the optimal order of approximation of the finite element in interpolation, and in solving the biharmonic...

A continuous finite element method with face penalty to approximate Friedrichs' systems

Erik Burman, Alexandre Ern (2007)

ESAIM: Mathematical Modelling and Numerical Analysis

A continuous finite element method to approximate Friedrichs' systems is proposed and analyzed. Stability is achieved by penalizing the jumps across mesh interfaces of the normal derivative of some components of the discrete solution. The convergence analysis leads to optimal convergence rates in the graph norm and suboptimal of order ½ convergence rates in the L2-norm. A variant of the method specialized to Friedrichs' systems associated with elliptic PDE's in mixed form and reducing the number...

A diffuse interface fractional time-stepping technique for incompressible two-phase flows with moving contact lines

Abner J. Salgado (2013)

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

For a two phase incompressible flow we consider a diffuse interface model aimed at addressing the movement of three-phase (fluid-fluid-solid) contact lines. The model consists of the Cahn Hilliard Navier Stokes system with a variant of the Navier slip boundary conditions. We show that this model possesses a natural energy law. For this system, a new numerical technique based on operator splitting and fractional time-stepping is proposed. The method is shown to be unconditionally stable. We present...

A family of discontinuous Galerkin mixed methods for nearly and perfectly incompressible elasticity∗

Yongxing Shen, Adrian J. Lew (2012)

ESAIM: Mathematical Modelling and Numerical Analysis

We introduce a family of mixed discontinuous Galerkin (DG) finite element methods for nearly and perfectly incompressible linear elasticity. These mixed methods allow the choice of polynomials of any order k ≥ 1 for the approximation of the displacement field, and of order k or k − 1 for the pressure space, and are stable for any positive value of the stabilization parameter. We prove the optimal convergence of the displacement and stress fields...

A finite difference method for fractional diffusion equations with Neumann boundary conditions

Béla J. Szekeres, Ferenc Izsák (2015)

Open Mathematics

A finite difference numerical method is investigated for fractional order diffusion problems in one space dimension. The basis of the mathematical model and the numerical approximation is an appropriate extension of the initial values, which incorporates homogeneous Dirichlet or Neumann type boundary conditions. The wellposedness of the obtained initial value problem is proved and it is pointed out that each extension is compatible with the original boundary conditions. Accordingly, a finite difference...

A finite element discretization of the contact between two membranes

Faker Ben Belgacem, Christine Bernardi, Adel Blouza, Martin Vohralík (2009)

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

From the fundamental laws of elasticity, we write a model for the contact between two membranes and we perform the analysis of the corresponding system of variational inequalities. We propose a finite element discretization of this problem and prove its well-posedness. We also establish a priori and a posteriori error estimates.

A finite element method on composite grids based on Nitsche’s method

Anita Hansbo, Peter Hansbo, Mats G. Larson (2003)

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

In this paper we propose a finite element method for the approximation of second order elliptic problems on composite grids. The method is based on continuous piecewise polynomial approximation on each grid and weak enforcement of the proper continuity at an artificial interface defined by edges (or faces) of one the grids. We prove optimal order a priori and energy type a posteriori error estimates in 2 and 3 space dimensions, and present some numerical examples.

A finite volume method for the Laplace equation on almost arbitrary two-dimensional grids

Komla Domelevo, Pascal Omnes (2005)

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

We present a finite volume method based on the integration of the Laplace equation on both the cells of a primal almost arbitrary two-dimensional mesh and those of a dual mesh obtained by joining the centers of the cells of the primal mesh. The key ingredient is the definition of discrete gradient and divergence operators verifying a discrete Green formula. This method generalizes an existing finite volume method that requires “Voronoi-type” meshes. We show the equivalence of this finite volume...
