Title:Hybrid Finite Element Methods for Elasticity Problems
Seminar:CCMA PDEs and Numerical Methods Seminar Series
Speaker:Alexandre Madureira, Laboratório Nacional de Computação Científica-LNCC
Abstract Link:
In this talk we discuss the use of hybrid methods for multiscale partial differential equations, in particular concerning the development of a hybrid scheme to solve the linear elasticity system. The unknowns are the displacements and the boundary tractions at each element. Starting from a primal hybrid formulation, the method has a domain decomposition flavor, and the displacements can be discontinuous, with continuous tractions. A decomposition of the primal space allows the reformulation of the continuous problem as a coupled system of elementwise equations, and a global mixed system posed on the mesh skeleton. The scheme is embarrassingly parallel, where the local problems are solved independently. We shall discuss the connections between this and some other methods.
