Goal-oriented A Posteriori Error Estimates in Finite Hyperelasticity
Coming full circle in this chapter, expansions of the goal-oriented error estimation procedures presented in the preceding chapter to the finite hyperelasticity problem within both Newtonian and Eshelbian mechanics are derived for compressible and (nearly) incompressible materials. These error estimation procedures represent the most challenging ones presented in this monograph from both theoretical and numerical points of view. As a consequence, attention is focused on the derivation of error approximations rather than upper- or lower-bound error estimates. In the nonlinear case, a natural norm, such as the energy norm does not exist. The estimation of the general error measures introduced in the preceding chapter, on the other hand, does not necessarily rely on norm-based error estimators and thus allows for the derivation of a more versatile approach in a posteriori error estimation that can be employed in this chapter. Throughout this chapter, we confine ourselves to Galerkin mesh-based methods although similar error estimation procedures can also be developed for Galerkin meshfree methods.
