Nitsche Method for resolving boundary conditions on embedded interfaces using XFEM in Code Aster

by   Nanda Gopala Kilingar, et al.

As X-FEM approximation does not need meshing of the crack, the method has garnered a lot of attention from industrial point of view. This thesis report summarises some of the concepts involved in Nitsche approach for resolving boundary conditions in embedded interfaces using XFEM. We consider here cases in which the jump of a field across the interface is given, as well as cases in which the primary field on the interface is given. We will first derive the basics of Nitsche method and then discretize it with X-FEM using shifted basis enrichment. We will then implement this on an open source platform, Code-Aster.
