3D composite finite elements for elliptic boundary value problems with discontinuous coefficients - Zurich Open Repository and Archive


Preusser, T; Rumpf, M; Sauter, S; Schwen, L O (2011). 3D composite finite elements for elliptic boundary value problems with discontinuous coefficients. SIAM Journal on Scientific Computing (SISC), 33(5):2115-2143.

Abstract

For scalar and vector-valued elliptic boundary value problems with discontinuous
coefficients across geometrically complicated interfaces, a composite finite element approach is developed.
Composite basis functions are constructed, mimicing the expected jump condition for the
solution at the interface in an approximate sense. The construction is based on a suitable local
interpolation on the space of admissible functions. We study the order of approximation and the
convergence properties of the method numerically. As applications, heat diffusion in an aluminium
foam matrix filled with polymer and linear elasticity of micro-structured materials, in particular
specimens of trabecular bone, are investigated. Furthermore, a numerical homogenization approach
is developed for periodic structures and real material specimens which are not strictly periodic but
are considered as statistical prototypes. Thereby, effective macroscopic material properties can be
computed.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
