Nonlinear Finite Elements for Continua and Structures / Edition 1by Ted Belytschko, Wing Kam Liu, Brian Moran
Pub. Date: 10/11/2000
This book provides a comprehensive description of the major methodologies of nonlinear finite element analysis for solid mechanics, as applied to continua and structures. Treatment of the subject is integrated in such a way that the reader can gain an understanding of the fundamental methods, a feeling for the comparative usefulness of different approaches and an appreciation of the difficulties inherent in nonlinear analysis. In-depth coverage of the following is given:
- Lagrangian and arbitrary Lagrangian Eulerian treatments of continua
- many of the material laws used in today?s software and research
- solution methods, including explicit and implicit time integration methods and methods for equilibrium problems
- basic concepts such as stability and smoothness, and techniques such as linearization and regularization
- methods for shells and structures
- contact-impact problems
- element technology, including multi-field elements

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.
