Nonlinear Finite Elements for Continua and Structures p>Nonlinear Finite Elements for Continua and Structures

This updated and expanded edition of the bestselling textbook provides a comprehensive introduction to the methods and theory of nonlinear finite element analysis. New material provides a concise introduction to some of the cutting-edge methods that have evolved in recent years in the field of nonlinear finite element modeling, and includes the eXtended Finite Element Method (XFEM), multiresolution continuum theory for multiscale microstructures, and dislocation- density-based crystalline plasticity.

Nonlinear Finite Elements for Continua and Structures, Second Edition focuses on the formulation and solution of discrete equations for various classes of problems that are of principal interest in applications to solid and structural mechanics. Topics covered include the discretization by finite elements of continua in one dimension and in multi-dimensions; the formulation of constitutive equations for nonlinear materials and large deformations; procedures for the solution of the discrete equations, including considerations of both numerical and multiscale physical instabilities; and the treatment of structural and contact-impact problems.

Key features:

  • Presents a detailed and rigorous treatment of nonlinear solid mechanics and how it can be implemented in finite element analysis
  • Covers many of the material laws used in today's software and research
  • Introduces advanced topics in nonlinear finite element modelling of continua
  • Introduction of multiresolution continuum theory and XFEM
  • Accompanied by a website hosting a solution manual and MATLAB(R) and FORTRAN code

Nonlinear Finite Elements for Continua and Structures, Second Edition is a must-have textbook for graduate students in mechanical engineering, civil engineering, applied mathematics, engineering mechanics, and materials science, and is also an excellent source of information for researchers and practitioners.
