Some Applications of Discontinuous Galerkin Methods in Solid Mechanics
We provide a brief overview of our recent work on applications of discontinuous Galerkin methods in solid mechanics. The discussion is light in technical details, and rather emphasizes key ideas, advantages and disadvantages of the approach, illustrating these with several numerical examples.
