Nonlinear Finite Element Analysis of Solids and Structures Volume 1 : Essentials M.A. Crisfield Imperial College of Science, Technology and Medicine, London, UK Taking an engineering rather than a mathematical bias, this comprehensive book details the fundamentals of nonlinear finite element analysis. The author explains how nonlinear techniques can be used to solve practical problems. The main ideas of geometric nonlinearity, continuum mechanics, plasticity, element technology and stability theory are explored in detail. The reader is also introduced to the recent research in this developing field. The computer programs in the text are available on the Internet via anonymous ftp, using the URL ftp
