Choosing the right strategy to tackle nonlinear analysis is always a challenging topic for engineers and analysts.
Moreover, the robustness of the DIANA solvers, in conjunction with the well-developed and optimised nonlinear material models distinguish DIANA as "the Best" amongst the normal solutions.
The aim of this e-learning session is to highlight the pros and cons of the various iterative methods available in DIANA and the reference application areas.
We will also discuss the definition of the convergence criteria in light of extended auxiliary techniques such as arc-length and line search.
As a part of this session, we expect you to gain an understanding of:
- How to utilise various nonlinear techniques and iterative procedures in DIANA.
- How to set up a nonlinear analysis in DIANA.
- The results of different nonlinear approaches.
