Abstract:Abstract. Recently, the Adaptive Delaunay Tessellation (Adt) was introduced in the context of computational mechanics as a tool to support Voronoi-based nodal integration schemes in the finite element method. While focusing on applications in mechanical engineering, the former presentation lacked rigorous proofs for the claimed geometric properties of the Adt necessary for the computation of the nodal integration scheme. This paper gives pending proofs for the three main claims which are uniqueness of the Adt,… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students and researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
