A numerical simulation of an experimental test, carried out on a light alloy
plate with circular steel inclusions, is performed by using the Boundary
Element Method (B.E.M.).
Because of the supposed frictionless unilateral
contact between plate and inclusions, the numerical solutions are obtained by
using some known boundary variational formulations reported in the technical
A simple identification procedure is applied to determine an
unknown parameter of the model.
In recent years a lot of interest has been devoted to the mathematical
formulations of structural problems involving unilateral constraints.
important class of these problems concerns the fr...
