Comparison of adaptive algorithms for solving plane problems of classical and cosserat elasticity


Paper continues developments and numerical testing of functional approach [1-3] to a posteriori error control for 2D problems of classical [2] and Cosserat elasticity [4,5]. The approach yields reliable error bounds (majorants) that are valid for all conforming solutions of problems regardless of methods used for a numerical implementation of a solution process. Efficiency of the above technique is shown on a set of numerical examples including consequent mesh adaptations with MATLAB tools as it was done [6].
