Periodizitätjährlich wiederkehrende Veranstaltung

KurzbeschreibungThe course provides an introduction to non-linear finite element analysis. The treated sources of non-linearity are related to material properties (hyperelasticity, plasticity), kinematics (large deformations, instability problems) and boundary conditions (contact).
LernzielTo be able to address all major sources of non-linearity in theory and numerics, and to apply this knowledge to the solution of relevant problems in solid mechanics.
Inhalt1. Introduction: various sources of nonlinearities and implications for FEA.
2. Non-linear kinematics: large deformations, stability problems.
3. Non-linear material behavior: hyperelasticity, plasticity.
4. Non-linear boundary conditions: contact problems.
SkriptLecture notes will be provided. However, students are encouraged to take their own notes.
Voraussetzungen / BesonderesMechanics 1, 2, Dynamics, Continuum Mechanics I and Introduction to FEA. Ideally also Continuum Mechanics II.
