Webinar Overview

Nonlinear structural analysis is concerned with structures where structural response, such as deformation or stress, is not proportional to inputs like applied loads. This behavior arises from:

Nonlinear constitutive behavior, such as plasticity and hyperelasticity
Large deformation, such as buckling
Nonlinear boundary conditions, such as contact and friction
In this webinar, we will discuss the built-in and user-defined features that the COMSOL® software provides to capture nonlinear structural behavior and will highlight some best practices.
The webinar includes a live demo in the COMSOL Multiphysics® software and concludes with a Q&A session.
