Finite Element Methods in Mechanics - Part I of II

(Invited Minisymposium)

(For Part II, see MS67)

10:30 AM-12:30 PM
Room: Savannah 1

This minisymposium will focus on some recent results in the application of finite element methods to problems in solid mechanics. Topics include locking-free elements for elasticity, plates and shells, limits of elastic stability, and solution techniques such as multigrid methods, least squares methods, mortar methods and superconvergent patch recovery.

Organizer: Susanne Brenner
University of South Carolina, Columbia

10:30-10:55 Multigrid for Finite Elements in H(div) and H(curl)
Douglas N. Arnold, Pennsylvania State University
11:00-11:25 Locking-Free Finite Elements for the Reissner-Mindlin Plate
Richard S. Falk, Rutgers University; and Tong Tu, Bloomberg Princeton Index Group
11:30-11:55 First-Order Systems Least-Squares Functionals for Stokes and Linear Elasticity
Thomas A. Manteuffel, University of Colorado, Boulder
12:00-12:25 Locking-Free Finite Element Methods for Shells
Tong Sun, Texas A&M University, College Station
