CHAPTER 12

SUMMARY AND RESEARCH RECOMMENDATIONS

12.1 INTRODUCTION

This concluding chapter puts the developments presented in this book in context and identifies research opportunities in computational mechanics that derive from these advances. These objectives are accomplished in the following five Sections.

The first section summarizes the primary objective of this book, which is to provide an overview of adaptive refinement and develop improvements to its components. The second section reviews the significance of the reinterpretation of the displacement interpolation functions in terms of the physically interpretable strain gradient quantities that have been presented in this book.

The third and fourth sections outline the simplifications ...
