Finite element approximation of an evolution problem modeling shear band formation. (English) Zbl 0848.73064
Summary: An error analysis is provided for the spatial approximation by the finite element method of a nonlinear time-dependent problem which models the antiplane shear deformations of a thermoplastic material. This problem consists of a system of two coupled partial differential equations with velocity and temperature as unknowns. Optimal order error estimates in the \(L^2\)-norm are given for each of these.
