Title:New model and elements for plates
Seminar:Computational and Applied Mathematics Colloquium
Speaker:L. Donatella Marini, University of Pavia, Italy
Abstract:
We present a new model for thin plates, intermediate between the classical Kirchoff and Reissner-Mindlin models. The advantage with respect to the Kirchoff model is that it allows for numerical approximations with C^0-elements instead of C^1, and at the same time it is less difficult to deal with than Reissner-Mindlin. We introduce suitable finite element spaces over a cartesian grid, and show optimal convergence properties.
