Nonlinear finite element analysis of solids and structures. Volume 1: Essentials. 2 disks, Version 1.0. (English) Zbl 0809.73005
Chichester: Wiley. xv, 345 p. (1991).
An up-to-date text which is devoted to the nonlinear problems of finite element analysis. This is an area of increasing importance as nonlinear techniques are used more widely for the solution of practical problems. Detailed here are the main ideas of geometric nonlinearity and a framework for a nonlinear finite element computer program, which is available to accompany the book. The text includes material on continuum mechanics, plasticity and stability theory.
