Introducing Physical Nonlinearity in the Design of Aluminum-Alloy Vehicle Components

  • I. S. Gel’ver
  • A. V. Kolunin


The application of the finite-element method in the design of vehicle components consisting of physically nonlinear materials is possible by parabolic approximation of the actual deformation diagram. Taking account of physical nonlinearity permits satisfactory design of the load-bearing structures in vehicles.
