On the Application of Stable Generalized Finite Element Method for Quasilinear Elliptic Two-Point BVP

by   Tilsa Aryeni, et al.

In this paper, we discuss the application of the Generalized Finite Element Method (GFEM) to approximate the solutions of quasilinear elliptic equations with multiple interfaces in one dimensional space. The problem is characterized by spatial discontinuity of the elliptic coefficient that depends on the unknown solution. It is known that unless the partition of the domain matches the discontinuity configuration, accuracy of standard finite element techniques significantly deteriorates and standard refinement of the partition may not suffice. The GFEM is a viable alternative to overcome this predicament. It is based on the construction of certain enrichment functions supplied to the standard space that capture effects of the discontinuity. This approach is called stable (SGFEM) if it maintains an optimal rate of convergence and the conditioning of GFEM is not worse than that of the standard FEM. A convergence analysis is derived and performance of the method is illustrated by several numerical examples. Furthermore, it is known that typical global formulations such as FEMs do not enjoy the numerical local conservation property that is crucial in many conservation law-based applications. To remedy this issue, a Lagrange multiplier technique is adopted to enforce the local conservation. A numerical example is given to demonstrate the performance of proposed technique.
