Numerical Analyses of Dynamic Contact Buckling Problems Using the Penalty Finite Element Method
The present paper deals with the application of the penalty finite element method to the dynamic contact problems. The try-and-error method is employed to obtain the converged contact state. To show the effectiveness and the validity of the method, the dynamic buckling of an arch of sine-curve shape is analyzed for three kinds of loadings including the contact phenomena.
