DFG SPP 1748/2: "Reliable Simulation Techniques in Solid Mechanics - Development of Non-Standard Discretisation Methods, Mechanical and Mathematical Analysis" - Participating Project: "Foundation and Application of Generalized Mixed FEM Towards Nonlinear Problems in Solid Mechanics"

The research of this project aims at the mathematical foundation and the engineering application of generalized mixed FEM as well as the development and the analysis of new non-standard methods that yield guaranteed results for nonlinear problems in solid mechanics. The workgroup will continue their analysis on nonlinear problems in raising difficulty from Hencky material to polyconvex material and geometric nonlinear configurations. Recent breakthroughs in the dPG methodology for nonlinear problems motivate the application of adaptive dPG schemes with built-in error control to further problems such as hyperelasticity, the obstacle problem and time-evolving elastoplasticity. Optimal convergence rates of adaptive nonlinear LS and dPG methods and Arnold-Winther FEM and guaranteed error estimation for dPG methods involving explicit constants and correct scaling will be investigated.
