"A Finite Element Algorithm for Contact Problems with Friction";
Structural Engineering and Mechanics,
A finite element algorithm for consideration of contact constraints in presented. It is characterized by introducing the geometric constraints, resulting from contact conditions, directly into the algebraic system of equations for the incremental iterative solution procedure. The usefulness of the proposed algorithm for efficient solutions of contact problems involving large displacements and large strains is demonstrated in the numerical investigation.
Keywords: friction, contact, contact problem, finite elements, geometric contraints, large displacements, large strains
