A Posteriori Dual-Mixed Adaptive Finite Element Error Control for Lamé and Stokes Equations
A Posteriori Dual-Mixed AFE Error Control
A unified and robust mathematical model for compressible and incompressible linear elasticity can be obtained by rephrasing the Herrmann formulation within the Hellinger-Reissner principle. This quasi-optimally converging extension of PEERS (Plane Elasticity Element with Reduced Symmetry) is called Dual-Mixed Hybrid formulation (DMH). Explicit residual-based a posteriori error estimates for DMH are introduced and are mathematically shown to be locking-free, reliable, and efficient. The estimator serves as a refinement indicator in an adaptive algorithm for effective automatic mesh generation. Numerical evidence supports that the adaptive scheme leads to optimal convergence for Lamé and Stokes benchmark problems with singularities.
