Why rate equations in Nonlinear FE?
I have a very fundamental question as follwing.
In Nonlinear FE formulations, we use rate equations (virtual work), but, in linear FE we don't use rate equations. Why???
Is it because Nonlinear solution is iterative solution (time may be virtual time).
I request those who have an idea to give some explanations.
Thanks in advance,
