Syllabus
Prerequisites: Continuum Mechanics
Target skills and knowledge: The course is based on the analysis and modelling of non-linear solids and structures for material (and geometry). Emphasis is given to modelling aspects and on the development of the theory in a form adequate for the modelling itself. The idea is to present theory and correspondent numerical methods as a gradual development, from simple systems as trusses and beams to threedimensional bodies, characterized by non-linear kinematics and material behaviour.
Examination methods: Practical application. Each student will develop autonomously a mechanical detail using the numerical tecniques learnt during the course.
Assessment criteria: The evaluation is based on:
- exercises (some exercises can be developed by the candidate)
- practical test and oral discussion on theoretical subjects
Course unit contents: General formulation of the finite element method and application to solid mechanics in statics field (weighted residual method, variational method, Bubnov-Galerkin method, principle of virtual work, discretization in space, isoparametric finite elements).

Finite element method for non-linear problems (linearization, Newton's method, quasi-Newton and modified Newton).

Linear and Non-linear trusses and beams: deformation - equilibrium - tangent stiffness matrix - use of shape functions - assembling - total or lagrangian formulation.
Euler-Bernoulli beam.

Elasto-plastic solids: elastic solids - general theory of plasticity - return mapping algorithm - models for granular materials (finite elasto-plasticity).

Deformation and equilibrium of solids: deformation - non-linear deformation - strain decomposition - virtual work and stresses (Piola-Kirchhoff, Cauchy, stress rates) - total and updated lagrangian formulation.

Computational Contact Mechanics: - General formulation - Penalty method - Lagrange multiplier method.

Techniques of three dimensional modeling.
Planned learning activities and teaching methods: Frontal lectures
