Maximum-Entropy Meshfree Method for Linear and Nonlinear Elasticity

Doctoral Dissertation By Alejandro A. Ortiz Office of Graduate Studies, University of California, Davis, California March 2011 ABSTRACT A Galerkin-based maximum-entropy meshfree method for linear and nonlinear elastic media is developed. The standard displacement-based Galerkin formulation is used to model compressible linear elastic solids, whereas the classical u-p mixed formulation for near-incompressible linear elastic media…
