Existence result and discontinuous finite element discretization for a plane stresses Hencky problem. (English) Zbl 0693.73022
The authors propose and analyze a discontinuous finite element method for a plane stress Hencky problem. Relaxing the boundary condition on that part of the boundary, where the plate is clamped, they develop existence results justifying the relaxation not only from the mathematical point of view but also from a physical one. For a finite element discretization they prove an existence result and show the convergence to the original solution in a weak sense.
Numerical tests are not presented in this work but the authors give references where examples may be found.
