Numerical analysis of viscoelastic problems. (English) Zbl 0718.73091
Recherches en Mathématiques Appliquées, 15. Paris etc.: Masson; Berlin etc.: Springer-Verlag. 136 p. FF 160.00 (1990).
The book aims at the numerical and mathematical analysis of viscous solid mechanics problems; including viscoelastic and viscoplastic problems (pure elastoplasticity is also considered), within the framework of small strains and differential constitutive laws. The text starts from the mechanical model, followed by the mathematical analysis and different formulations, and ends with the numerical solution (mixed finite element) to the associated problems.
The book covers classical notions of functional and numerical analysis (convex analysis, maximal monotone operators, alternating direction schemes, conjugate gradient algorithms and Newton’s methods) and presents then in a unified manner, with possible applications to frozen soils, concrete and metal forming.
