The objective of this course is to introduce the theory and application of the finite element method for non-linear systems. Non-linearities arising from both material behavior and large deformations will be discussed.
Applications of non-linear finite element methods include:
The course is suited to graduate students in Mechanical Engineering, Industrial,
and Manufacturing Engineering and Material Science.
