Abstract

We present a Generalized Finite Element Method for the analysis of grain-boundary sliding in polycrystals. Grain boundaries are represented by means of elements with embedded displacement discontinuities through the partition of unity property of finite-element shape functions. Consequently, the finite-element mesh does not need to conform to grain boundaries.
