Title: Overset meshing coupled with hybridizable discontinuous Galerkin finite elements

Abstract

We introduce the use of hybridizable discontinuous Galerkin (HDG) finite element methods on overlapping (overset) meshes. Overset mesh methods are advantageous for solving problems on complex geometrical domains. We also combine geometric flexibility of overset methods with the advantages of HDG methods: arbitrarily high-order accuracy, reduced size of the global discrete problem, and the ability to solve elliptic, parabolic, and/or hyperbolic problems with a unified form of discretization. This approach to developing the ‘overset HDG’ method is to couple the global solution from one mesh to the local solution on the overset mesh. We present numerical examples for steady convection–diffusion and static elasticity problems. The examples demonstrate optimal order convergence in all primal fields for an arbitrary amount of overlap of the underlying meshes.
