Nonlinear Finite-element-Method

Course Highlights The first part of the course will follow the characteristics of finite element method from a mathematical point of view. Weak formulation of differential equations and its finite element formulation will be covered. Application to linear elastic body will be investigated with finite element method formulation, isoparametric solid element, Gaussian elimination for system of linear equations to introduce the general programming of finite element method. The second part consists of the finite element method of its application to nonlinear problems.
