Topics: Use of elastic constitutive relations in total Lagrangian formulation

  • Basic considerations in modeling material response
  • Linear and nonlinear elasticity
  • Isotropic and orthotropic materials
  • One-dimensional example, large strain conditions
  • The case of large displacement/small strain analysis, discussion of effectiveness using the total Lagrangian formulation
