CE-WP06: Finite Element Method for Nonlinear Analyses of Materials and Structures Ruhr-Universität Bochum
The course is concerned with inelastic material models including their algorithmic formulation and implementation in the framework of nonlinear finite element analyses. Special attention will be paid to efficient algorithms for physically nonlinear structural analyses considering elastoplastic models for metals, soils and concrete as well as damaged based models for brittle materials.
The goal of the course is to convey to students the ability to formulate and to implement inelastic material models for ductile and brittle materials within the context of the finite element method and to perform nonlinear ultimate load structural analyses.
Basic knowledge of tensor analysis, continuum mechanics and linear Finite Element Methods is required;participation in the lecture ,,Advanced Finite Element Methods’’ (CE-WP04) is strongly recommended
Project work (implementation of nonlinear material models) and final student presentation within the scope of a seminar (100%)
