The virtual element method for linear elastodynamics models. Design, analysis, and implementation

by   P. F. Antonietti, et al.

We design the conforming virtual element method for the numerical simulation of two dimensional time-dependent elastodynamics problems. We investigate the performance of the method both theoretically and numerically. We prove the stability and the convergence of the semi-discrete approximation in the energy norm and derive optimal error estimates. We also show the convergence in the L^2 norm. The performance of the virtual element method is assessed on a set of different computational meshes, including non-convex cells up to order four in the h-refinement setting. Exponential convergence is also experimentally seen in the p-refinement setting.
