Nonlinear Problems

Part of the Springer Series in Solid and Structural Mechanics book series (SSSSM, volume 13)


In this chapter we discuss nonlinear problems. The focus is on the questions, which parts of the algebra of finite elements can be directly transferred to the nonlinear theory and where the nonlinear theory differs from the linear theory and what are the characteristic features of nonlinear theories.
