Nonlinear Continuum Mechanics for Finite Element Analysis

Nonlinear Continuum Mechanics for Finite Element Analysis

The first edition of this successful text considered nonlinear geometrical behavior and nonlinear hyperelastic materials, and the numerics needed to model such phenomena. By presenting both nonlinear continuum analysis and associated finite element techniques in one, Bonet and Wood provide, in the new edition of this successful text, a complete, clear, and unified treatment of these important subjects. New chapters dealing with hyperelastic plastic behavior are included, and the authors have thoroughly updated the FLagSHyP program, freely accessible at


'… a unified introduction - can be recommended to postgraduate students and to researchers from mechanical, aerospace and civil engineering areas.' Zentralblatt für Mathematik und ihre Grenzgebiete

'The authors have succeeded in writing an excellent textbook - the book is absolutely recommended directly to students and scientists in the field of solid mechanics at universities.' K. Schweizerhof, ZAMM
