Detailed Description

template<size_t Dim>
struct Elasticity::FirstOrderSystem< Dim >

The linear elasticity equation formulated as a set of coupled first-order PDEs.

This system formulates the elasticity equation \(\nabla_i T^{ij} = f_\mathrm{ext}^j\) (see Elasticity). It introduces the symmetric strain tensor \(S_{kl}\) as an auxiliary variable which satisfies the Elasticity::ConstitutiveRelations \(T^{ij} = -Y^{ijkl} S_{kl}\) with the material-specific elasticity tensor \(Y^{ijkl}\). Written as a set of coupled first-order PDEs, we get

\begin{align*} -\nabla_i Y^{ijkl} S_{kl} = f_\mathrm{ext}^j \\ -\nabla_{(k} \xi_{l)} + S_{kl} = 0 \end{align*}

The fluxes and sources in terms of the system variables \(\xi^j\) and \(S_{kl}\) are given by

\begin{align*} F^i_{\xi^j} &= Y^{ijkl}_{(\xi, S)} S_{kl} \\ S_{\xi^j} &= 0 \\ f_{\xi^j} &= f_\mathrm{ext}^j \\ F^i_{S_{kl}} &= \delta^{i}_{(k} \xi_{l)} \\ S_{S_{kl}} &= S_{kl} \\ f_{S_{kl}} &= 0 \text{.} \end{align*}

See Poisson::FirstOrderSystem for details on the first-order flux-formulation.
