Finite element discretization of a thermoelastic beam

Abstract

We consider the steady case of a nonlinear model for a thermoelastic beam that can enter in contact with obstacles. We first prove the well-posedness of this problem. Next, we propose a finite element discretization and perform the a priori and a posteriori analysis of the discrete problem. Some numerical experiments confirm the interest of this approach.
