Numerical manifold method with fixed mesh

G. Chen, Z. Jiang, Y. Wu

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


The continuity problem in the original approach of numerical manifold method is analyzed and a new approach is proposed to solve the problem. The rectangular mesh is used and the mathematical mesh is regenerated rather than renewed from the displacements in each time step. The covers, elements and weight functions are given and an example of beam bending problem is analyzed for primary check of its validity and efficiency.
