Introduction to Nonlinear Finite Element Analysis will introduce the key concepts of nonlinear finite element analysis procedures. The book will explain the fundamental theories of the field, and provide instructions on how to apply the concepts to solving practical engineering problems. Instead of covering many nonlinear problems, only four representative problems are addressed: nonlinear elasticity, elastoplasticity, contact problem, and dynamic problem. The book is written independent of any particular software, but tutorials and examples using four commercial programs are included as appendices: ANSYS, NASTRAN, ABAQUS, and MATLAB. In particular, the MATLAB program will include all source codes so that students can develop their own material models, or different algorithms.
