  1. 1. Model Adaptivity in Elasticity

    University dissertation from Göteborg : Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : David Heintz; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2008]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; finite element method; dimension reduction; a posteriori error; model error; model adaptivity;

    Abstract : We consider model adaptivity in elasticity for dimensionally reduced forms, and shall treat different conceptual approaches. The basic idea, however, is to adaptively refine, not only the computational mesh, but also the underlying mathematical formulation. READ MORE

  2. 2. Automation of Computational Mathematical Modeling

    University dissertation from Göteborg : Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Anders Logg; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2004]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; computational mathematical modeling; automation; adaptivity; multi-adaptivity; individual time steps; dual problem; a priori; a posteriori; model reduction;

    Abstract : This thesis concerns the Automation of Computational Mathematical Modeling (CMM), involving the key steps of automation of (i) discretization, (ii) discrete solution, (iii) error control, (iv) modeling, and (v) optimization. The automation of (i)--(ii) is realized through multi-adaptive Galerkin methods on general discretizations of space-time with time steps variable in space. READ MORE

  3. 3. Adaptive variational multiscale methods

    University dissertation from Göteborg : Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Axel Målqvist; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2005]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; finite element method; Galerkin; duality; a posteriori error estimation; adaptivity; variational multiscale method; mixed formulation; multi-physics; oil reservoir simulation;

    Abstract : In this thesis we present a new adaptive multiscale method for solving elliptic partial differential equations. The method is based on numerical solution of decoupled local fine scale problems on patches. READ MORE

  4. 4. Adaptive finite element methods for multiphysics problems

    University dissertation from Umeå : Institutionen för Matematik och matematisk statistik, Umeå universitet

    Author : Fredrik Bengzon; Umeå universitet.; [2009]
    Keywords : finite element methods; multiphysics; a posteriori error estimation; duality; adaptivity; discontinuous Galerkin; fractional step methods;

    Abstract : In this thesis we develop and analyze the performance ofadaptive finite element methods for multiphysics problems. Inparticular, we propose a methodology for deriving computable errorestimates when solving unidirectionally coupled multiphysics problemsusing segregated finite element solvers. READ MORE

  5. 5. A Two-stage Numerical Procedure for an Inverse Scattering Problem

    University dissertation from Göteborg : University of Gothenburg

    Author : John Bondestam Malmberg; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2015]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; coefficient inverse problem; inverse scattering; backscattering data; approximate global convergence; finite element method; adaptivity; a posteriori error analysis;

    Abstract : In this thesis we study a numerical procedure for the solution of the inverse problem of reconstructing location, shape and material properties (in particular refractive indices) of scatterers located in a known background medium. The data consist of time-resolved backscattered radar signals from a single source position. READ MORE
