—In this paper we employ 3D hp-adaptive finite element method (hp-FEM) to model the behavior of a squeezed layered material. Under a moderate pressure, the linear elasticity model can be used to imitate the process. Thanks to hp-adaptivity, only the regions where the error rate is high are refined, making sure that all peculiarities are automatically localized.
—Finite element method, hp adaptivity, linear elasticity.
