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 ...
A novel technique for modelling interfaces in reinforced brittle materials
(Proceedings of the 4th International Conference on Fracture Mechanics of Concrete Structures (FRAMCOS4)Proceedings of the 4th International Conference on Fracture Mechanics of Concrete Structures (FRAMCOS4), 2001)
A novel numerical technique for the modelling of interfaces is introduced for the analysis of reinforced brittle materials. The method exploits the partition of unity property of finite element shape functions. By considering ...
