Arc-Length Method for Frictional Contact Problems by using Mathematical Program with Complementarity Constraints


A new formulation as well as a new solution technique is proposed for an equilibrium path-following method in two-dimensional quasi-static frictional contact problems. We consider the classical Coulomb friction law as well as geometrical nonlinearity explicitly. Based on a criterion of maximum dissipation of energy, we propose a formulation as a… (More)
