A novel quadratic Edge-based Smoothed Conforming Point Interpolation Method (ES-CPIM) for elasticity problems
Xu, Xu, Liu, Gui-Rong, & Gu, YuanTong (2012) A novel quadratic Edge-based Smoothed Conforming Point Interpolation Method (ES-CPIM) for elasticity problems. International Journal of Computational Methods, 9(2).
his paper formulates an edge-based smoothed conforming point interpolation method (ES-CPIM) for solid mechanics using the triangular background cells. In the ES-CPIM, a technique for obtaining conforming PIM shape functions (CPIM) is used to create a continuous and piecewise quadratic displacement field over the whole problem domain. The smoothed strain field is then obtained through smoothing operation over each smoothing domain associated with edges of the triangular background cells. The generalized smoothed Galerkin weak form is then used to create the discretized system equations. Numerical studies have demonstrated that the ES-CPIM possesses the following good properties: (1) ES-CPIM creates conforming quadratic PIM shape functions, and can always pass the standard patch test; (2) ES-CPIM produces a quadratic displacement field without introducing any additional degrees of freedom; (3) The results of ES-CPIM are generally of very high accuracy.
