Comparison of two approaches for the discretization of elastodynamic contact problems

Abstract

The purpose of this Note is to compare two approaches for the discretization of elastodynamic contact problems. First, we introduce an energy conserving method based on a standard midpoint scheme and a contact condition expressed in terms of velocity. The second approach consists in considering an equivalent distribution of the body mass so that the nodes… (More)
