Geometric Nonlinear Finite Element Program

    I'm programming a finite element program to analyze the force of submarine pipeline.When the pipeline is lifted highly from seabed,it is a large deformation problem.

    Is there any open soure  to solve the problem?

    Give me some advices.

    Thanks a lot!

SIMULIA announces new features in Abaqus 6.10

For those of you looking for FSI simulation on Abaqus platform, recently Simulia has announced the new features in release 6.10, which introduces the capability for performing Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulation.
So it enables users to perform coupled physics simulations with
Abaqus/Standard and Abaqus/Explicit, such as fluid-structure
interaction between human tissue, a medical device, and fluid flow, more information:

I am sure many mechanicians know him by his books, such as

Mohr's Circle---When Was the Last Time You Used It in Your Professional Engineering Work?

As a consultant in computational mechanics, I currently help write some FEM-related code, and while doing this job, an episode from a recent past came to my mind. Let me go right on to the technical issue, keeping aside the (not so good) particulars of that episode. (In case you are curious: it happened outside of my current job, during a job interview.)

If you are a design engineer, FE analyst, researcher, or any professional dealing with stress analysis in your work, I seek answers to a couple of questions from you:

Hello, everyone 

on convected coordinates (curvilinear)

Please suggest me any good reference on curvilinear convected coordinates. I am finding it difficult to physically interpret and visualize the concept. I would be very thankful.

Nonlinear deformation analysis of CNTs with higher order Cauchy-Born rule based constitutive model

 

   Recently, we have developed a so-called higher order Cauchy-Born rule based
   constitutive model for the analysis of large deformation of CNTs [1]. It is
   a generalized quasi-continuum model for nano-structures.

What is the equation of formula to calculate flexural rigidity of RC Slab

Dear eveyone,

I need to know the formula or expression to calculate the flexural rigidity (D) of RC Slab reiforced with steel bars. I know that for plain concrete, D can be taken as Et3/12(1-v2). However, I have no idea what is D when steel bars are added to slab. I really appreciate for any kind help. Thanks
