  • Abstract

We study the dual mixed finite element approximation of unilateral contact problems. Based on the dual mixed variational formulation with three unknowns (stress, displacement and the displacement on the contact boundary), the a priori error estimates have been established for both conforming and nonconforming finite element approximations. A Uzawa type iterative algorithm is developed to solve the resulting linear system. Numerical example shows good performance of the method.
