Non‐linear analysis of plane elastic bodies with inclusions by a BEM‐FEM approach Academic Article uri icon


  • In the present study a hybrid boundary‐element and finite‐element method is developed for the non‐linear analysis of two‐dimensional elastic media with inclusions, and it is utilized in defining the micro‐mechanical stress field in composite materials. The linear elastic, isotropic and homogeneous matrix is treated with the BEM, while the non‐linear elastic and orthotropic inclusions (fibres) are treated with the FEM.
