Variational approach for nonsmooth elasto-plastic dynamics with contact and impacts

Abstract

The objective of this article is the modelling and the numerical simulation of the response of elastoplastic structures to impacts. To this end, a numerical method is proposed that takes into account one-sided contact (Signorini condition) and impact phenomena together with plasticity in a monolithic solver, while accounting for the non-smooth character of the dynamics. The formulation of the plasticity and the contact laws are based on inclusions into normal cone of convex sets, or equivalently, variational inequalities following the pioneering work of Moreau (1974) and Halphen and Nguyen (1975), who intro- duced the assumptions of normal dissipation and of generalised standard materials (GSM) in the frame- work of associated plasticity with strain hardening. The proposed time–stepping method is an extension of the Jean and Moreau (1987) scheme for nonsmooth dynamics. The discrete energy balance shows that spurious numerical damping can be suppressed and that the scheme is in practice unconditionally stable. Furthermore, the finite-dimensional variational inequality at each time–step is well–posed and can be solved by optimization methods for convex quadratic programs, providing an interesting alternative to the return mapping algorithm coupled with a dedicated frictional contact method. The paper is completed by illustrative numerical examples of impacts on steel structures consisting of beams.
