Abstract

In this paper, we build on the work of Hughes and Sangalli (2007) dealing with the explicit computation of the Fine-Scale Greens’ function. The original approach chooses a set of functionals associated with a projector to compute the Fine-Scale Greens’ function. The construction of these functionals, however, does not generalise to arbitrary projections, higher dimensions, or Spectral Element methods. We propose to generalise the construction of the required functionals by using dual functions. These dual functions can be directly derived from the chosen projector and are explicitly computable. We show how to find the dual functions for both the L2 and the H01 projections. We then go on to demonstrate that the Fine-Scale Greens’ functions constructed with the dual basis functions consistently reproduce the unresolved scales removed by the projector. The methodology is tested using one-dimensional Poisson and advection–diffusion problems, as well as a two-dimensional Poisson problem. We present the computed components of the Fine-Scale Greens’ function, and the Fine-Scale Greens’ function itself. These results show that the method works for arbitrary projections, in arbitrary dimensions. Moreover, the methodology can be applied to any Finite/Spectral Element or Isogeometric framework.
