Augmented Lagrangian Domain Decomposition Method for Bonded Structures
Domain decomposition methods are subject to a greater interest, due to obvious implication for parallel computing. Non-overlapping methods are particularly well suited for coupled problems through an interface as bonded structures (e.g. ) air/water flows (e.g. ), two-body contact problems (e.g. [6, 9]), etc. For these coupled problems, the domain decomposition methods applied in a natural way, since the sub-domains are already defined.
