Typedef and functions declarations related to NCP-Path solver for 3 dimension frictional contact problems.

Each solver must have 4 functions in its interface:

  • initialize: link local static variables to the global ones (M,q,…)
  • update: link/fill the local variables corresponding to sub-blocks of the full problem, for a specific contact
  • solve: solve the local problem
  • free


void fc3d_Path_computeError(int dimension, double *velocity, double *reaction, double *output_error)

compute error for friction-contact 3D problem with Path

in-out parameter )
  • dimension: of the global problem
  • velocity: vector (
  • reaction: vector
  • output_error:

void fc3d_Path_free(void)

free memory for friction contact 3D Path solver

void fc3d_Path_initialize(FrictionContactProblem *problem, FrictionContactProblem *localproblem, SolverOptions *localsolver_options)

Initialize friction-contact 3D Path solver.

  • problem: to solve
  • localproblem: to solve
  • localsolver_options: of the solver

int fc3d_Path_solve(FrictionContactProblem *localproblem, double *reaction, SolverOptions *options)

solve friction-contact 3D problem with Path

if sucessfull
  • localproblem: to solve
  • reaction:
  • options: of the solver
