VIRTUAL ELEMENT METHOD FOR 3D CONTACT

Contact plays a very important role in engineering problems, where two or more bodies interact with each other through their surfaces. Many techniques were developed in the past, to formulate the contact constraint at the contact interface between two bodies. Nevertheless, VEM provides efficient and robust properties to enforce the contact constraint through the contact interface. Investigations in 2D have been done so far. This work aims an extensions of VEM to 3D contact Problems.
