Nonlinear Finite Elements for Continua and Structures, 2nd Edition provides a comprehensive introduction to the methods and theory of nonlinear finite element analysis. It focuses on the formulation and solution of the discrete equations for various classes of problems that are of principal interest in applications of the finite element method 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 physical instabilities; and the treatment of structural and contact-impact problems. This updated second edition contains three new chapters on multiresolution methods for multiscale analyses, extended finite elements and dislocation-based crystal plasticity models.
