Unformatted text preview: kin Problems 3 As usual, we apply the divergence theorem to the secondderivative terms in L to reduce
the continuity requirements on u. When L has the form of (9.2.1b), the Galerkin problem
1
consists of determining u 2 HE (t > 0) such that
(v ut) + A(v u) = (v f )+ < v ; u > 8v 2 H01 t > 0: (9.2.2a) The L2 inner product, strain energy, and boundary inner product are, as with elliptic
problems,
(v f ) = A(v u) = ZZ ZZ vfdxdy (9.2.2b) p(vxux + vy uy ) + vqu]dxdy (9.2.2c) and < v pun >= Z
@N vpunds: (9.2.2d) The natural boundary condition (9.2.1e) has been used to replace pun in the boundary
inner product. Except for the presence of the (v ut) term, the formulation appears to
the same as for an elliptic problem.
Initial conditions for (9.2.2a) are usually determined by projection of the initial data
(9.2.1c) either in L2
(v u) = (v u0) 8v 2 H01 t=0 (9.2.3a) or in strain energy A(v u) = A(v u0) 8v 2 H01 t = 0: (9.2.3b) Example 9.2.1. We analyze the onedimensional heat conduction problem ut = (pux)x + f (x t) 0<x<1 t>0 u(x 0) = u0(x)

thoroughly in the spirit that we did in Chapter 1 for a twopoint boundary value problem.
A Galerkin form of this heatconduction problem consists of determining u 2 H01
satisfying

otherwise This problem is very similar to the onedimensional elliptic problem considered in Section
1.3, so we'll skip several steps and also construct the discrete equations by vertices rather
than by elements. 9.2. SemiDiscrete Galerkin Problems
Since j 5 has support on the two elements containing node j we have A( j U ) = Zx j 0 pU
