Robust Semi-Discrete and Fully Discrete Hybrid Stress Finite Element Methods for Elastodynamic Problems

  • Xiaojing Xu (a1) and Xiaoping Xie (a2)

This paper analyzes semi-discrete and fully discrete hybrid stress quadrilateral finite element methods for 2-dimensional linear elastodynamic problems. The methods use a 4 node hybrid stress quadrilateral element in the space discretization. In the fully discrete scheme, an implicit second-order scheme is adopted in the time discretization. We derive optimal a priori error estimates for the two schemes and an unconditional stability result for the fully discrete scheme. Numerical experiments confirm the theoretical results.
