A quasistatic contact problem with adhesion and friction for viscoelastic materials

Arezki Touzaline (2010)

Applicationes Mathematicae

We consider a mathematical model which describes the contact between a deformable body and a foundation. The contact is frictional and is modelled by a version of normal compliance condition and the associated Coulomb's law of dry friction in which adhesion of contact surfaces is taken into account. The evolution of the bonding field is described by a first order differential equation and the material's behaviour is modelled by a nonlinear viscoelastic constitutive law. We derive a variational formulation...

A viscoelastic model with non-local damping application to the human lungs

Céline Grandmont, Bertrand Maury, Nicolas Meunier (2006)

ESAIM: Mathematical Modelling and Numerical Analysis

In this paper we elaborate a model to describe some aspects of the human lung considered as a continuous, deformable, medium. To that purpose, we study the asymptotic behavior of a spring-mass system with dissipation. The key feature of our approach is the nature of this dissipation phenomena, which is related here to the flow of a viscous fluid through a dyadic tree of pipes (the branches), each exit of which being connected to an air pocket (alvelola) delimited by two successive masses. The...

An a posteriori error analysis for dynamic viscoelastic problems

J. R. Fernández, D. Santamarina (2011)

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

In this paper, a dynamic viscoelastic problem is numerically studied. The variational problem is written in terms of the velocity field and it leads to a parabolic linear variational equation. A fully discrete scheme is introduced by using the finite element method to approximate the spatial variable and an Euler scheme to discretize time derivatives. An a priori error estimates result is recalled, from which the linear convergence is derived under suitable regularity conditions. Then, an a posteriori...

Analysis of a viscoelastic antiplane contact problem with slip-dependent friction

Thierry-Vincent Hoarau-Mantel, Andaluzia Matei (2002)

International Journal of Applied Mathematics and Computer Science

We study a mathematical problem modelling the antiplane shear deformation of a viscoelastic body in frictional contact with a rigid foundation. The contact is bilateral and is modelled with a slip-dependent friction law. We present the classical formulation for the antiplane problem and write the corresponding variational formulation. Then we establish the existence of a unique weak solution to the model, by using the Banach fixed-point theorem and classical results for elliptic variational inequalities....

Analysis of crack singularities in an aging elastic material

Martin Costabel, Monique Dauge, SergeïA. Nazarov, Jan Sokolowski (2006)

ESAIM: Mathematical Modelling and Numerical Analysis

We consider a quasistatic system involving a Volterra kernel modelling an hereditarily-elastic aging body. We are concerned with the behavior of displacement and stress fields in the neighborhood of cracks. In this paper, we investigate the case of a straight crack in a two-dimensional domain with a possibly anisotropic material law. We study the asymptotics of the time dependent solution near the crack tips. We prove that, depending on the regularity of the material law and the Volterra kernel,...

Comparative Analysis of Viscoelastic Models Involving Fractional Derivatives of Different Orders

Rossikhin, Yuriy, Shitikova, Marina (2007)

Fractional Calculus and Applied Analysis

Mathematics Subject Classification: 74D05, 26A33In this paper, a comparative analysis of the models involving fractional derivatives of di®erent orders is given. Such models of viscoelastic materials are widely used in various problems of mechanics and rheology. Rabotnov's hereditarily elastic rheological model is considered in detail. It is shown that this model is equivalent to the rheological model involving fractional derivatives in the stress and strain with the orders proportional to a certain positive...

Dissipatività e unicità per il problema dinamico unidimensionale della viscoelasticità lineare

Giorgio Vergara Caffarelli (1988)

Atti della Accademia Nazionale dei Lincei. Classe di Scienze Fisiche, Matematiche e Naturali. Rendiconti Lincei. Matematica e Applicazioni

Fissato lo spazio di Sobolev H 1 , 2 come ambiente del problema dinamico per un corpo viscoelastico unidimensionale si dimostra un teorema di unicità per la classe delle funzioni di rilassamento convesse. Si fa inoltre vedere come tale unicità sia strettamente legata allo spazio ambiente considerato.

Dissipatività ed esistenza per il problema dinamico unidimensionale della viscoelasticità lineare

Giorgio Vergara Caffarelli (1988)

Atti della Accademia Nazionale dei Lincei. Classe di Scienze Fisiche, Matematiche e Naturali. Rendiconti Lincei. Matematica e Applicazioni

In questa nota si completa la studio (iniziato in [1]) della caratterizzazione delle funzioni di rilassamento per le quali il problema dinamico della viscoelasticità lineare, con condizioni di spostamento nullo agli estremi, risulta ben posto nello spazio di Sobolev H 1 , 2 . Precisamente, per un'opportuna classe di sollecitazioni esterne, si dimostra l'esistenza della soluzione, se le funzioni di rilassamento sono positive, convesse ed hanno il modulo di elasticità all'equilibrio strettamente maggiore...

Dynamic contact problems with slip-dependent friction in viscoelasticity

Ioan Ionescu, Quoc-Lan Nguyen (2002)

International Journal of Applied Mathematics and Computer Science

The dynamic evolution with frictional contact of a viscoelastic body is considered. The assumptions on the functions used in modelling the contact are broad enough to include both the normal compliance and the Tresca models. The friction law uses a friction coefficient which is a non-monotone function of the slip. The existence and uniqueness of the solution are proved in the general three-dimensional case.

Dynamic frictional contact of a viscoelastic beam

Marco Campo, José R. Fernández, Georgios E. Stavroulakis, Juan M. Viaño (2006)

ESAIM: Mathematical Modelling and Numerical Analysis

In this paper, we study the dynamic frictional contact of a viscoelastic beam with a deformable obstacle. The beam is assumed to be situated horizontally and to move, in both horizontal and tangential directions, by the effect of applied forces. The left end of the beam is clamped and the right one is free. Its horizontal displacement is constrained because of the presence of a deformable obstacle, the so-called foundation, which is modelled by a normal compliance contact condition. The effect...

Free energy and internal variables in linear viscoelasticity

Angelo Morro, Maurizio Vianello (1989)

Atti della Accademia Nazionale dei Lincei. Classe di Scienze Fisiche, Matematiche e Naturali. Rendiconti Lincei. Matematica e Applicazioni

In connection with the determination of the free energy functional for the viscoelastic stress tensor, a viscoelastic material is considered as described by a material with internal variables. In this framework the free energy is uniquely determined. It proves to be the minimal one in the class of thermodynamically admissible free energies.

Global existence and energy decay of solutions to a Bresse system with delay terms

Abbes Benaissa, Mostefa Miloudi, Mokhtar Mokhtari (2015)

Commentationes Mathematicae Universitatis Carolinae

We consider the Bresse system in bounded domain with delay terms in the internal feedbacks and prove the global existence of its solutions in Sobolev spaces by means of semigroup theory under a condition between the weight of the delay terms in the feedbacks and the weight of the terms without delay. Furthermore, we study the asymptotic behavior of solutions using multiplier method.
