Numerical Solution of Plane Elasticity Problems with the Cell Method

F. Cosmi1

Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences 2001, 2(3), 365-372.


The aim of this paper is to present a methodology for solving the plane elasticity problem using the Cell Method. It is shown that with the use of a parabolic interpolation in a vectorial problem, a convergence rate of 3.5 is obtained. Such a convergence rate compares with, or is even better than, the one obtained with FEM with the same interpolation – depending on the integration technique used by the FEM application. The accuracy of the solution is also comparable or better.
