Formulation of continuous/discontinuous Galerkin methods for strain gradient-dependent damage
(Strength Fracture and ComplexityStrength Fracture and Complexity, 2006)
Continuum damage models are widely used to represent the development of microscopic defects that coalesce into a macroscopic crack. The microscopic defects cause a progressive weakening or softening of the material (damage). ...
Automated modelling of viscoelastic flow using FEniCS
(XVI Convegno Italiano di Meccanica ComputazionaleXVI Convegno Italiano di Meccanica Computazionale, 2006)
Using high-level abstractions, it is possible to efﬁciently automate the development of ﬁnite element models. This has advantages in terms of rapid development, a dramatic reduction in programming errors and offers the ...
A study of discontinuous Galerkin methods for thin bending problems
(Computational Mechanics: Solids Structures and Coupled ProblemsComputational Mechanics: Solids Structures and Coupled Problems, 2006)
Various continuous/discontinuous Galerkin formulations are examined for the analysis of thin plates. These methods rely on weak imposition of continuity of the normal slope across element boundaries. We draw here upon ...
