The interpolating element-free Galerkin method for the variational-hemivariational inequality of the frictionless elastic contact problem with normal compliance and unilateral constraint

Rui Ding, Quan Shen and Xiaoyue Lu

Vol. 17 (2022), No. 4, 365–379

A mathematical model which describes the frictionless contact problem with normal compliance and unilateral constraint is considered in this paper. The material is elastic. The contact condition is the normal compliance condition with unilateral constraint. This mathematical model is solved by the interpolating element-free Galerkin method numerically. Compared with the element-free Galerkin method, the interpolating element-free Galerkin method can impose the Dirichlet boundary conditions exactly. Numerical examples demonstrate the effectiveness of the interpolating element-free Galerkin method.
