Nonlinear analysis of plane elastic bodies with inclusions by a BEMFEM approach Academic Article uri icon


  • In the present study a hybrid boundaryelement and finiteelement method is developed for the nonlinear analysis of twodimensional elastic media with inclusions, and it is utilized in defining the micromechanical stress field in composite materials. The linear elastic, isotropic and homogeneous matrix is treated with the BEM, while the nonlinear elastic and orthotropic inclusions (fibres) are treated with the FEM.
