Description
 are not so well posed
 introduce stringent computer time conditions
 require robust solution techniques.
Advanced material formulations include anisotropic hyperelasticity, large strain multiplicative viscoplasticity and single crystal viscoplasticity. Finally, the methods described in the book are implemented in the finite element software CalculiX, which is freely available (www.calculix.de; the GNU General Public License applies).
Suited to industry practitioners and academic researchers alike, The Finite Element Method for ThreeDimensional Thermomechanical Applications expertly bridges the gap between continuum mechanics and the finite element method.
