Nonlinear Solid Mechanics for Finite Element Analysis: Statics (Bonet, Gil and Wood)

Designing engineering components that make optimal use of materials requires consideration of the nonlinear static and dynamic characteristics associated with both manufacturing and working environments. The modeling of these characteristics can only be done through numerical formulation and simulation, which requires an understanding of both the theoretical background and associated computer solution techniques. By presenting both nonlinear continuum analysis and associated finite element techniques together the authors provide, in the first of two books in this series, a complete, clear, and unified treatment of the static aspects of nonlinear solid mechanics. Alongside a range of worked examples and exercises are user instructions, program descriptions, and examples for the FLagSHyp MATLAB computer program implementation, for which the source code is available below. The text is an essential resource for postgraduates studying nonlinear continuum mechanics. It is also ideal for those in industry requiring an appreciation of the way in which their computer simulation programs work.

Worked Examples in Nonlinear Continuum Mechanics for Finite Element Analysis (Bonet, Gil and Wood)

This book provides a complete set of exercises and solutions in the field of theoretical and computational nonlinear solid mechanics and is the companion to the above text book. It employs notation consistent with the text book and serves as a great resource to students, researchers and those in industry interested in gaining confidence by practising through examples. Instructors of the subject will also find the book indispensable in aiding student learning. More information can be found from Cambridge University Press click here

FLagSHyP program and other downloads

Downloads of the FLagSHyP MATLAB program together with sample data, readme files and a simple MATLAB 2-D polar decomposition program are availble by clicking here . Also available are FLagSHyP FORTRAN versions of the software that were described in Nonlinear Continuum Mechanics for Finite Element Analysis (Bonet and Wood) 2nd. Edition. The readme file will contain any corrections together with information that the authors consider of general concern. Consequently it is a good idea to occasionally check the www.flagshyp.com web site.

The authors will not normally respond to e-mailed questions .
