Materially Nonlinear Large Displacement Analysis of Structures Using Reduced Basis Technique

Conference paper


A reduced basis technique for solving the materially nonlinear and large displacement problems in structural analysis is presented. Starting from the main ideas in reduction methods, which are recently developed for applications in solving purely elastic problems, extensions of such methods are given for elastic-plastic problems. The attention is confined to small strain analysis of metallic structures. To describe elastic-plastic behaviour in ductile metals, a strain space theory, developed in the framework of the general theory of plasticity given by Green and Naghdi is used.
