In many important applications the material response is sufficiently non-linear that simple hyperelasticity or metal plasticity is not good enough. In these cases the PolyUMod library can be very useful since it contains a selection of the most advanced and accurate material models that are currently available. The PolyUMod library is easy to use and can give you a significant competitive advantage!
The focus of this article is on how isoparametric shape functions can be used to simplify the calculation of the principle of virtual work.
Derivation of the equation of virtual work in discretized form. The presented results are the foundation to the Finite Element method.
