A new book Nonlinear Mechanics for Composite Heterogeneous Structures, appears by CRC Press, 2022, written by Georgios Drosopoulos, lecturer in Civil Engineering at the University of Central Lancashire, U.K., Honorary Associate Professor, University of Kwazulu-Natal, South Africa, former postdoctoral researcher at the Technical University of Crete and professor Georgios Stavroulakis, Director of the Institute of Computational Mechanics and Optimization, School of Production Engineering and Management at the Technical University of Crete.
The book presents both classical and multi-scale finite element analysis to the non-linear, failure response of composite structures. The classical methods include geometric and material non-linearity, plasticity, damage and contact mechanics. The cutting-edge formulations include cohesive zone models, the Extended Finite Element Method (XFEM), mA new book Nonlinear Mechanics for Composite Heterogeneous Structures of Georgios appears by CRC Press, 2022, written by Georgios Drosopoulos, ulti-scale computational homogenization, localization of damage, neural networks and data-driven techniques. The book is suitable for textbook and provides MATLAB codes for two-dimensional finite element problems with contact, multi-scale (FE2) and non-linear XFEM analysis, data-driven and machine learning simulations.
