The frictional contact problem is one of the most important and challenging topics in solids mechanics, and often encountered in the practical engineering.
The nonlinearity and non-smooth properties result in that the convergent solutions can't be obtained by the widely used trial-error iteration method. Mathematical Programming which has good convergence properties and rigorous mathematical foundation is an effective alternative solution method, in which, the frictional contact conditions can be expressed as Non-smooth Equations, B-differential equations, Nonlinear Complementary Problem, etc.
In this paper, static frictional contact problems of double cantilever beam are analyzed by Mathematical Programming in the framework of Scaled Boundary Finite Element Method (SBFEM), in which the contact conditions can be expressed as the B-differential Equations.
The contact forces and the deformation with different friction factors are solved and compared with those obtained by ANSYS, by which the accuracy of solving contact problems by SBFEM and B-differential Equations is validated.
