Virtual Special Issue: 'Outstanding research contributions in the area of nonlinear continuum and computational mechanics'

The 2014 Nathan M. Newmark Medal was awarded to Professor Herbert A. Mang at the annual ASCE Structures Conference, which took place in Boston, April 3–5, 2014. Professor Mang was awarded the Newmark Medal for his outstanding research contributions in the area of nonlinear continuum and computational mechanics that clarified the cause of collapse of important concrete structures and quantified the influence of the initial post buckling behavior of metallic structures.

Have someone met a strange behavior of Load-Displacement curve in a simple 2D indentation problem

I am modelling a very simple 2D contact problem between a rigid wedge indenter and a deformable squared-shape specimen (general steel material) in frictionless contact case. I used an implicit function f to describe the rigid indenter.

I implemented Lagrange multiplier method for this contact problem and the contact condition is: Inside the contact zone of the deformable specimen, the node set is active if f(node)<=0 and the Lagrange multiplier lambda<=0.
