Abstract [en]

A stable boundary treatment of the dynamic beam equation (DBE) with two different sets of boundary conditions has been conducted using the summation-by-parts-simultaneous-approximation-term (SBP-SAT) method. As the DBE involves a fourth derivative in space the numerical boundary treatment is highly non-trivial. Using SBP-SAT operators together with suitable time integration schemes the DBE has been simulated and a convergence study has been made. The results show that the SBP-SAT method produces a stable discretistation that is accurate enough to capture the dispersive nature of the dynamic beam equation. In additions simulations were made presenting the importance of a stable boundary treatment showing that the numerical solutions diverge when the boundaries were not handled correctly.
