Stretched Elastic Sheet with Horizontal Cut in Interior

Given a rectangular finite elastic sheet $ABCD$ containing an arbitrary horizontal cut (or discontinuity) $EF$ in its interior. The edge $AB$ of the sheet is tethered but $CD$ is stretched by $\Delta$ ...

Building blocks for solving a vector valued problem

This question is a follow-up of this previous one. I decided to solve the linear elasticity \begin{cases}- \nabla \sigma(u)=f \\ u=0 \text{ on } \partial \Omega\end{cases} with P1 Lagrangian finite ...

FEM for vector valued problems: reference request

I'm a PhD working in a computational mechanics lab. I come from a Math department, and I have a good background for what concerns the basics of finite elements, like inf-sup conditions, DG, non-...

Displacement field not correct?

Consider the elastic equation $$- \operatorname{div}(C \nabla \mathbf{u}) = \mathbf{f}$$ as presented in step-8. Here $\mathbf{u}$ is the displacement vector, let's consider the 2d case. As you can ...

trilinear hex elements

Do the faces of tri-linear hex elements have to be planar? Three nodes define a plane. If the fourth node does not lie on the plane, then the nodes are not planar and the face is not plane. In general,...
