Sometimes, engineers need to analyze nonlinear materials, which behave differently than linear materials. Nonlinear phenomena can be due to non-linear material behavior, large displacements, stress dependency, and intermittent contact.
This project contains 6 modules that present the theory, numerical methods, and modeling techniques used to analyze mechanical systems containing non-linear materials. Elastic-plastic, hyperelastic, and viscoelastic materials are covered in both static and dynamic load environments.
