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...

We consider a dynamic frictionless contact problem for a viscoelastic material with damage. The contact is modeled with normal compliance condition. The adhesion of the contact surfaces is considered and is modeled with a surface variable, the bonding field, whose evolution is described by a first order differential equation. We establish a variational formulation for the problem and prove the existence and uniqueness of the solution. The proofs are based on the theory of evolution equations with...

We consider a quasistatic contact problem for an electro-viscoelastic body. The contact is frictional and bilateral with a moving rigid foundation which results in the wear of the contacting surface. The damage of the material caused by elastic deformation is taken into account, its evolution is described by an inclusion of parabolic type. We present a weak formulation for the model and establish existence and uniqueness results. The proofs are based on classical results for elliptic variational...

In this paper we prove a maxmin principle for nonlinear nonoverdamped eigenvalue problems corresponding to the characterization of Courant, Fischer and Weyl for linear eigenproblems. We apply it to locate eigenvalues of a rational spectral problem in fluid-solid interaction.

A modal synthesis method to solve the elastoacoustic vibration problem is analyzed. A two-dimensional coupled fluid-solid system is considered; the solid is described by displacement variables, whereas displacement potential is used for the fluid. A particular modal synthesis leading to a symmetric eigenvalue problem is introduced. Finite element discretizations with Lagrangian elements are considered for solving the uncoupled problems. Convergence for eigenvalues and eigenfunctions is proved,...

A new Schwarz method for nonlinear systems is presented, constituting the multiplicative variant of a straightforward additive scheme. Local convergence can be guaranteed under suitable assumptions. The scheme is applied to nonlinear acoustic-structure interaction problems. Numerical examples validate the theoretical results. Further improvements are discussed by means of introducing overlapping subdomains and employing an inexact strategy for the local solvers.

We analyze Euler-Galerkin approximations (conforming finite elements in space and implicit Euler in time) to coupled PDE systems in which one dependent variable, say u, is governed by an elliptic equation and the other, say p, by a parabolic-like equation. The underlying application is the poroelasticity system within the quasi-static assumption. Different polynomial orders are used for the u- and p-components to obtain optimally convergent a priori bounds for all the terms in the error energy...
