Conserving Time Integrators for Nonlinear Elastodynamics

  • In this thesis, the enhanced Galerkin (eG) finite element method in time is presented. The eG method leads to higher order accurate energy and momentum conserving time integrators for the underlying finite-dimensional Hamiltonian systems. This thesis is concerned with particle dynamics and semi-discrete nonlinear elastodynamics. The conservation is generally related to the collocation property of the eG method. The momentum conservation renders the Gaussian quadrature and the energy conservation is obtained by using a new projection technique. An objective time discretisation of the used strain measures avoids artificial strains for large superimposed rigid body motions. The numerical examples show the well long term performance in the presence of stiffness as well as for calculating large-strain motions.
