kirchhoff-nitsche-ex1: Clamped square plate. Nitsche’s method for Kirchhoff plates. We introduce Nitsche’s method for the numerical approximation of the Kirchhoff-Love plate equation under general Robin-type boundary conditions. We analyze the method by presenting a priori and a posteriori error estimates in mesh-dependent norms. Several numerical examples are given to validate the approach and demonstrate its properties.
