 Speaker: Prof. Xiaoping Xie,Mathematics, Sichuan University Title: HYBRID FINITE VOLUME/FINITE ELEMENT METHODS FOR LINEAR ELASTICITY PROBLEMS Time: 2011.1.12 4:00pm Venue: Z311 Abstract: This talk is to introduce a coupling approach of finite element and finite volume for linear elasticity problems. A hybrid stress quadrilateral finite element discretization is used for the constitutive equation with continuous piecewise isoparametric bilinear displacement interpolation and two types of stress modes, and a finite volume formulation is used for the equilibrium equation. The resultant methods are free from Poisson locking in the sense that the error bounds in the a priori estimates are independent of the relevant Lame constant $\lambda$.Numerical experiments confirm the theoretical results.
