## European computational mechanics degrees

I'm looking for a good quality master's degree in computational mechanics. I currently live in Australia, and would prefer to study in Europe (must be an English based program as well). I have undergradaute degrees in mechanical engineering and computer science.

Two main degrees that stick out for me are the ones at the University of Stuttgart, and the Technical University of Munich.

## Ramm's Arc length method

Can anyone please tell me the alogotithm for E Ramm's arc length method. I am using the following type of algorithm but am not getting the correct result----

u{0}, lamda=0

Fext

n no of steps

Kg (stiffness with u{0})

u1=(Kg)^-1 * Fext'

[L D]=ldl(Kg)

m=det(D)

arc_length=norm(u1)

lamda= 0.1*arc_length/sqrt(u1'*u1+1)

if m<0

lamda=-lamda

end

u=lamda*u1

iterations:

Kg(u{0}+u)

Fint(u{0}+u)

Fres=Fint-lamda*Fext

ur=-inv(Kg)*Fres'
