Finally, the author presents numerical techniques for solution of the nonlinear global equations and summarizes recent results on momentum and energy conserving integration of time-dependent problems. Starting out from elementary concepts, the author systematically uses the principle of virtual work, initially illustrated by truss structures, to give a self-contained and rigorous account of the basic methods. Exercises, examples and algorithms are included throughout.. A concise introduction to finite elasticity is followed by an extension to elasto-plastic materials via internal vari
Decent book on nonlinear FEM analysis of structures This is a good follow-on book to Krenk's book on beams, columns & cables. The total and updated Lagrangian formulations are covered. Topics include bars, beam-columns, and solids. Requires a great deal of continuum mechanics knowledge to understand. Would be good for a graduate course in nonlinear FEM analysis of structures.
