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...

2-dimensional primal domain decomposition theory in detail

Dalibor Lukáš, Jiří Bouchala, Petr Vodstrčil, Lukáš Malý (2015)

Applications of Mathematics

We give details of the theory of primal domain decomposition (DD) methods for a 2-dimensional second order elliptic equation with homogeneous Dirichlet boundary conditions and jumping coefficients. The problem is discretized by the finite element method. The computational domain is decomposed into triangular subdomains that align with the coefficients jumps. We prove that the condition number of the vertex-based DD preconditioner is O ( ( 1 + log ( H / h ) ) 2 ) , independently of the coefficient jumps, where H and h denote...

3D domain decomposition method coupling conforming and nonconforming finite elements

Abdellatif Agouzal, Laurence Lamoulie, Jean-Marie Thomas (2010)

ESAIM: Mathematical Modelling and Numerical Analysis

This paper deals with the solution of problems involving partial differential equations in  3 . For three dimensional case, methods are useful if they require neither domain boundary regularity nor regularity for the exact solution of the problem. A new domain decomposition method is therefore presented which uses low degree finite elements. The numerical approximation of the solution is easy, and optimal error bounds are obtained according to suitable norms.

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 Bermúdez–Moreno algorithm adapted to solve a viscoplastic problem in alloy solidification processes

P. Barral, P. Quintela, M. T. Sánchez (2014)

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

The aim of this work is to present a computationally efficient algorithm to simulate the deformations suffered by a viscoplastic body in a solidification process. This type of problems involves a nonlinearity due to the considered thermo-elastic-viscoplastic law. In our previous papers, this difficulty has been solved by means of a duality method, known as Bermúdez–Moreno algorithm, involving a multiplier which was computed with a fixed point algorithm or a Newton method. In this paper, we will...

A boundary multivalued integral “equation” approach to the semipermeability problem

Jaroslav Haslinger, Charalambos C. Baniotopoulos, Panagiotis D. Panagiotopoulos (1993)

Applications of Mathematics

The present paper concerns the problem of the flow through a semipermeable membrane of infinite thickness. The semipermeability boundary conditions are first considered to be monotone; these relations are therefore derived by convex superpotentials being in general nondifferentiable and nonfinite, and lead via a suitable application of the saddlepoint technique to the formulation of a multivalued boundary integral equation. The latter is equivalent to a boundary minimization problem with a small...

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 certified reduced basis method for parametrized elliptic optimal control problems

Mark Kärcher, Martin A. Grepl (2014)

ESAIM: Control, Optimisation and Calculus of Variations

In this paper, we employ the reduced basis method as a surrogate model for the solution of linear-quadratic optimal control problems governed by parametrized elliptic partial differential equations. We present a posteriori error estimation and dual procedures that provide rigorous bounds for the error in several quantities of interest: the optimal control, the cost functional, and general linear output functionals of the control, state, and adjoint variables. We show that, based on the assumption...

A class of nonparametric DSSY nonconforming quadrilateral elements

Youngmok Jeon, Hyun NAM, Dongwoo Sheen, Kwangshin Shim (2013)

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

A new class of nonparametric nonconforming quadrilateral finite elements is introduced which has the midpoint continuity and the mean value continuity at the interfaces of elements simultaneously as the rectangular DSSY element [J. Douglas, Jr., J.E. Santos, D. Sheen and X. Ye, ESAIM: M2AN 33 (1999) 747–770.] The parametric DSSY element for general quadrilaterals requires five degrees of freedom to have an optimal order of convergence [Z. Cai, J. Douglas, Jr., J.E. Santos, D. Sheen and X. Ye, Calcolo...
