Multiscale Problems: Theory, Numerical Approximation and Applications

English | 2011 | ISBN: 9814366889 | 314 Pages | PDF True | 5 MB

The focus of this is on the latest developments related to the analysis of problems in which several scales are presented. After a theoretical presentation of the theory of homogenization in the periodic case, the other contributions address a wide range of applications in the fields of elasticity (asymptotic behavior of nonlinear elastic thin structures, modeling of junction of a periodic family of rods with a plate) and fluid mechanics (stationary Navier-Stokes equations in porous media). Other applications concern the modeling of new composites (electromagnetic and piezoelectric materials) and imperfect transmission problems. A detailed approach of numerical finite element methods is also investigated.
