A numerical algorithm for a Signorini problem associated with Maxwell-Norton materials by using generalized Newton’s methods. (English) Zbl 1115.74046
Summary: We present new numerical approaches to obtain computationally efficient adaptive procedures to solve contact problems associated with Maxwell-Norton materials. We describe in detail the numerical methods used to solve such problems and derive iterative algorithms. To validate the proposed algorithms, we present some test examples with known analytical solutions. Finally, we compare the efficiency of the algorithms presented in this paper with others previously proposed by the authors [P. Barral and P. Quintela, ibid. 178, No. 1–2, 69–88 (1999; Zbl 0973.74076); P. Barral and P. Quintela, Finite Elem. Anal. Des. 34, No. 2, 125–143 (2000; Zbl 1023.74042)].
