We present a mesh adaptation method by node movement for two-dimensional linear elasticity problems with unilateral contact. The adaptation is based on a hierarchical estimator on finite element edges and the node displacement techniques use an analogy of the mesh topology with a spring network. We show, through numerical examples, the efficiency of the… (More)
We consider the numerical solution of the free boundary Bernoulli problem by employing level set formulations. Using a perturbation technique, we derive a second order method that leads to a fast iteration solver. The iteration procedure is adapted in order to work in the case of topology changes. Various numerical experiments confirm the efficiency of the… (More)
We present a numerical method based on a level set formulation to solve the Bernoulli problem. The formulation uses time as a parameter of boundary evolution. The level set formulation enables to consider non connected domains. Numerical experiments show the efficiency of the method if boundary conditions are handled accurately. In particular, the case of… (More)
The numerical solution of the free boundary Bernoulli problem is addressed. An iterative method based on a level-set formulation and boundary element method is proposed. Issues related to the implementation, the accuracy, and the generality of the method are discussed. The efficiency of the approach is illustrated by numerical results. 1. Introduction.… (More)
We present an object oriented finite element library written in C++. We outline the main motivations in developing such a library. Through a simple example program we show a typical use of the library. We describe the main class categories and typical problems to solve using the library.
