VIRTUAL ELEMENT METHOD FOR DYNAMIC APPLICATIONS

The Virtual Element Method is a recent developed discretization method, which can be seen as an extension of the classical Galerkin finite element method. It has been applied to various engineering fields, such as elasto-plasticity, multiphysics, damage and fracture mechanics. This project focuses on the extension of VEM towards dynamic applications. In the first part the appropriate computation of the Massmatrix regarding the vitual element ansatzspace will be done. In future works, VEM will be applied to engineering problems, considering the dynamic behavior.
