On the Application of the Arlequin Method to the Coupling of Particle and Continuum Models


Abstract In this work, we propose to extend the Arlequin framework to couple particle and continuum models. Three different coupling strategies are investigated based on the L2 norm, H1 seminorm, and H1 norm. The mathematical properties of the method are studied for a one-dimensional model of harmonic springs, with varying coefficients, coupled with a… (More)
