A Generalized Finite Element Method for Linear Thermoelasticity
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 2017

We propose and analyze a generalized finite element method designed for linear quasistatic thermoelastic systems with spatial multiscale coefficients. The method is based on the local orthogonal decomposition technique introduced by Malqvist and Peterseim (Math. Comp. 83 (2014) 2583-2603). We prove convergence of optimal order, independent of the derivatives of the coefficients, in the spatial H-1-norm. The theoretical results are confirmed by numerical examples.
