Convergence of a stabilized discontinuous Galerkin method for incompressible nonlinear elasticity

In this paper we present a discontinuous Galerkin method applied to incompressible nonlinear elastostatics in a total Lagrangian deformation-pressure formulation, for which a suitable interior penalty stabilization is applied. We prove that the proposed discrete formulation for the linearized problem is well-posed, asymptotically consistent and that it converges to the corresponding weak solution. The derived convergence rates are optimal and further confirmed by a set of numerical examples in two and three spatial dimensions.
