An Introduction to Nonlinear Finite Element Analysis

J. N. Reddy


This book presents the theory and computer implementation of the finite element method as applied to nonlinear problems of heat transfer and similar field problems, fluid mechanics (flows of incompressible fluids), and solid mechanics (elasticity, beams and plates). Both geometric as well as material nonlinearities are considered, and static and transient (that is, time-dependent) responses are studied. Although there exist a number of books on nonlinear finite elements that serve as good references for engineers who are familiar with the subject and wish to learn advanced topics or the latest ...

Keywords: nonlinear finite element analysis, fluid mechanics, solid mechanics, geometric nonlinearities, material nonlinearities, static responses, transient responses, heat transfer, computer implementation
