In a first period of 2 1/2 months (1st August till 15th October) tensor approximation spaces applied to hyper elastic problems will be developed and implemented in colaboration with Profs Chensong Zhang and Long Chen at the Chinese Academy of Science. Tensor approximation spaces lead to numerical approximations where each element in in local equilibrium. Tensor approximation spaces also form the basis of efficient error estimators for high order continuous finite element approximations.In a second period (1st November till 31st January) the SBFem (Scaled Boundary Finite Element) approximations will be incorporated in the NeoPZ library in collaboration with Prof. Chongmin Song of the University of New South Wales (UNSW). The SBFem approximations will be applied to the simulation of multi scale problems combining MHM (multi scale hybrid) approximations with the SBFem method to model heterogeneous material properties. Such problems are representative of many multi scale problems. The combination of MHM with SBFem can be viewed as a two three level simulation. The global fluxes represent the global scale, the fine mesh represent the tension state in grains and SBFem represents the intergranular tensions.
