Adaptive Multigrid Methods for Signorini’s Problem in Linear Elasticity


Contact problems in computational mechanics are of significant importance for a variety of practical applications. Examples are metal forming processes, crash analysis, the design of gear boxes, bearings, car tires or implants in biomechanics. Here, we focus on Signorini’s problem in linear elasticity [10, 21, 22, 29] describing the linearized frictionless… (More)
