CIVL 6670 - Nonlinear Finite Element Methods


The formulations and solution strategies for finite element analysis of nonlinear problems are developed. Topics include the sources of nonlinear behavior (geometric, constitutive, boundary condition), derivation of the governing discrete equations for nonlinear systems such as large displacement, nonlinear elasticity, rate independent and dependent plasticity and other nonlinear constitutive laws, solution strategies for nonlinear problems (e.g., incrementation, iteration), and computational procedures for large systems of nonlinear algebraic equations.

Prerequisites/Corequisites: Prerequisite: CIVL 6660 or MANE 6660.

When Offered: Fall term odd-numbered years.



Cross Listed: Cross listed as MANE 6670. Students cannot obtain credit for both this course and MANE 6670.

Credit Hours: 3
