Benchmark Tests for Solution Procedures for Geometric Non-Linearity


Benchmark Tests for Solution Procedures for Geometric Non-Linearity





















This report is one of a series commissioned by NAFEMS which seek to provide benchmark tests against which finite element systems can be evaluated. The present report considers the solution of large, geometrically non—linear, deflections of truss elements.
