In linear analysis, when materials have deformations, they are then called “elastic”. To consider these deformations of materials, a nonlinear analysis will have to be used.
In this video, we will be introducing different nonlinear material models within Femap. Since we are using nonlinear material models we are interested in what’s happening to the material after it has yielded. Inside of Femap, there are different material models that can be set up for an isotropic material. These material models are:
