A comparison of solvers for linear complementarity problems arising from large-scale masonry structures

Mark Ainsworth, L. Angela Mihai (2006)

Applications of Mathematics

We compare the numerical performance of several methods for solving the discrete contact problem arising from the finite element discretisation of elastic systems with numerous contact points. The problem is formulated as a variational inequality and discretised using piecewise quadratic finite elements on a triangulation of the domain. At the discrete level, the variational inequality is reformulated as a classical linear complementarity system. We compare several state-of-art algorithms that have...

Carleman estimates with two large parameters for second order operators and applications to elasticity with residual stress

Victor Isakov, Nanhee Kim (2008)

Applicationes Mathematicae

We derive Carleman type estimates with two large parameters for a general partial differential operator of second order. The weight function is assumed to be pseudo-convex with respect to the operator. We give applications to uniqueness and stability of the continuation of solutions and identification of coefficients for the Lamé system of dynamical elasticity with residual stress. This system is anisotropic and cannot be principally diagonalized, but it can be transformed into an "upper triangular"...

Etude asymptotique de la jonction d'un massif tridimensionnel et d'une tige élancée en flexion.

B. Mampassi (1994)

Revista Matemática de la Universidad Complutense de Madrid

We are very interested with asymptotic problems for the system of elasticity involving small parameters in the description of the domain where the solutions is searched. The corresponding asymptotic expansions have different forms in the various between them. More precisely, our work is concerned with a precise description of the deformation and the stress fields at the junction of an elastic three-dimensional body and a cylinder. The corresponding small parameter is the diameter of the cylinder....

Extended Hashin-Shtrikman variational principles

Petr Procházka, Jiří Šejnoha (2004)

Applications of Mathematics

Internal parameters, eigenstrains, or eigenstresses, arise in functionally graded materials, which are typically present in particulate, layered, or rock bodies. These parameters may be realized in different ways, e.g., by prestressing, temperature changes, effects of wetting, swelling, they may also represent inelastic strains, etc. In order to clarify the use of eigenparameters (eigenstrains or eigenstresses) in physical description, the classical formulation of elasticity is presented, and the...

Gradient theory for plasticity via homogenization of discrete dislocations

Adriana Garroni, Giovanni Leoni, Marcello Ponsiglione (2010)

Journal of the European Mathematical Society

We deduce a macroscopic strain gradient theory for plasticity from a model of discrete dislocations. We restrict our analysis to the case of a cylindrical symmetry for the crystal under study, so that the mathematical formulation will involve a two-dimensional variational problem. The dislocations are introduced as point topological defects of the strain fields, for which we compute the elastic energy stored outside the so-called core region. We show that the Γ -limit of this energy (suitably rescaled),...
