Rolf Krause: Continuum Mechanics, Frictional Contact Problems and Nonsmooth Multiscale Methods – University of Copenhagen

Prof. Rolf Krause

Prof. Krause will give a short introduction to continuum mechanics and frictional contact problems and discuss nonsmooth multiscale methods and possibly nonlinear domain decomposition methods for solving contact problems. On the discretization side, Mortar methods will be introduced for treating two-body contact problem with comments on the multi scale nature of friction as motivation for multi-scale problems. A short overview on multiscale coupling methods and on our Mortar-related approach in multiscale coupling will be given and if time permits comment on the discretization in time of inequality constrained problems in mechanics will close this session.
