Implementation of Contact Algorithms with High Order FE
The Chapter is showing the implementation of high-order finite elements including the possibility of contact interactions within a special strategy such as contact layer finite element. Some numerical difficulties within the classical Hertz problem are studied (originated to ). Later, this example became the benchmark test for iso-geometric finite element, see  and . The contact layer finite element is illustrating good correlation with the analytical solution of the famous Hertz contact problem even within a single element covering the contact zone.
