Analysis of a quasicontinuum method in one dimension

Christoph Ortner, Endre Süli (2008)

ESAIM: Mathematical Modelling and Numerical Analysis

The quasicontinuum method is a coarse-graining technique for reducing the complexity of atomistic simulations in a static and quasistatic setting. In this paper we aim to give a detailed a priori and a posteriori error analysis for a quasicontinuum method in one dimension. We consider atomistic models with Lennard–Jones type long-range interactions and a QC formulation which incorporates several important aspects of practical QC methods. First, we prove the existence, the local uniqueness...

Approximation and numerical solution of contact problems with friction

Jaroslav Haslinger, Miroslav Tvrdý (1983)

Aplikace matematiky

The present paper deals with numerical solution of the contact problem with given friction. By a suitable choice of multipliers the whole problem is transformed to that of finding a saddle-point of the Lagrangian function on a certain convex set K × Λ . The approximation of this saddle-point is defined, the convergence is proved and the rate of convergence established. For the numerical realization Uzawa’s algorithm is used. Some examples are given in the conclusion.

Least square method for solving contact problems with friction obeying the Coulomb law

Jaroslav Haslinger (1984)

Aplikace matematiky

The paper deals with numerical realization of contact problems with friction obeying the Coulomb law. The original problem is formulated as the fixed-point problem for a certain operator generated by the variational inequality. This inequality is transformed to a system of variational nonlinear equations generating other operators, in a sense "close" to the above one. The fixed-point problem of these operators is solved by the least-square method in which equations and the corresponding quadratic...

The unbonded contact problem of a rectangular plate resting on an elastic foundation

Luigi Ascione, Renato S. Olivito, Giuseppe Spadea (1983)

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

In questo lavoro viene analizzato il problema di equilibrio statico di una piastra rettangolare in contatto unilaterale e senza attrito con un mezzo elastico. Si esaminano i due modelli di fondazione alla Winkler e di semispazio elastico. Il problema viene risolto mediante discretizzazione agli elementi finiti utilizzando un approccio di tipo «penalty». La rapida convergenza del metodo e la sua efficienza sono dimostrate dagli esempi studiati, che riguardano sia piastre quadrate che rettangolari...
