NONLINEAR FINITE ELEMENT ANALYSIS --- A short course taught by Ted Belytschko and Thomas J. R. Hughes

May 22-26, 2006 Austin TX

The purpose of this course is to provide engineers, scientists, and researchers with a background in the fundamentals of nonlinear finite element methods and a critical survey of the state-of-the-art. It covers solids, structures, and fluids, with an emphasis on methodologies and applications for non-linear problems. The theoretical background, implementations of various techniques, and modeling strategies will be treated. Advantages and shortcomings of alternative methods and the practical implications of recent research developments will be stressed. The course has been offered for the past 20 years and has been taken by about 2,000 engineers, scientists, faculty members, and graduate students. A synopsis of the topics covered can be found at


  • I went to this course in Palo Alto 1999 when Tom was still at Stanford. This is definitely a very advanced well put together course that you will enjoy. I learned a lot from that course and plan to go back to take it again in the near future.
