Summary "This is the first book to specifically address the explicit finite element method for nonlinear transient dynamics. This book aids readers in mastering the explicit finite element method as well as programming a code without extensively reading the more general finite element books. This book consists of 12 chapters within four sections including: the variation principles and formulation of the explicit finite element method for nonlinear transient dynamics; the finite element technology with 4-node and 3-node Reissner-Mindlin plate bending elements, the 8-node solid elements, etc.; plasticity and nonlinear material models; and contact algorithms and other kinematic constraint conditions. Each chapter contains a list of carefully chosen references intended to help readers to further explore the related subjects"-- Provided by publisher
