Overview

Nonlinear finite element analysis consists of the development of a model, formulation, discretization and solution of the governing equations, and interpretation of the results. This is applied to continua - continuous series or wholes ranging between two extremes - and structures. It is an essential component of computer-aided design, as testing of prototypes is increasingly being replaced by simulation, with nonlinear finite element methods providing a more rapid and less expensive way to evaluate design concepts and details.

This book was written very well. The content in the book is very interesting and useful. However some mistyped errors, especially in equations, can be detected.
