Authors: Barna A. Szabo

Addresses: A.P. and B.Y. Greensfelder Professor of Mechanics and Director, Center for Computational Mechanics, USA

Abstract: Procedures by which errors in finite-element solutions are estimated and controlled are discussed. Error indicators and predictors based on p-extensions are proposed and an example is presented.

Keywords: adaptive processes; discretisation errors; finite element analysis; FEA; mathematical modelling.
