Finite element tools
Numerous textbooks [324, 197, 198] present detailed development of the theoretical and numerical concepts underpinning the finite element method. Similar developments are clearly beyond the scope of this text. The present chapter focuses on specific details of the finite element method that are relevant to its application to flexible multibody systems. Techniques for interpolation of displacement and specially rotation fields are presented in sections 17.1 and 17.2, respectively.
