On the Compatibility Equations of Nonlinear and Linear Elasticity in the Presence of Boundary Conditions

We use Hodge-type orthogonal decompositions for studying the compatibility equations of the displacement gradient and the linear strain with prescribed boundary displacements. We show that the displacement gradient is compatible if and only if for any equilibrated virtual first-Piola Kirchhoff stress tensor field, the virtual work done by the displacement gradient is equal to the virtual work done by the prescribed boundary displacements. This condition is very similar to the classical compatibility equations for the linear strain.

A new time integration scheme for dynamic problems

An extension to an implicit time integration scheme of Silva and Bezerra has been proposed . It is proposed to combine the Newmark scheme with the three point backward Euler scheme to have more user controlled numerical properties like high frequency dissipation. Also, the stability, accuracy, and dissipation of the proposed scheme have been studied. This is achieved by studying the spectral radius, period elongation, and amplitude decay.
