Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

A new stabilized finite-element method is presented for the Stokes problem. The method is of a Douglas–Wang type, and includes a positive jump term controlling the residual of the Cauchy stress tensor on the internal edges of the triangulation. A priori error estimates are obtained in the natural norms of the unknowns and an a posteriori error estimator is proposed, analysed and tested through numerical experiments.
