Dear all

Hi

## University of Michigan Continuum Physics and FEM lectures available online

Open.Michigan is a University of Michigan initiative that enables faculty, students, and others to share their educational resources and research with the global learning community. As part of this, Continuum Physics and Finite Element Method lectures offered by Prof. Krishna Garikipati are now available online on youtube and open.umich.edu.

## Online finite element analysis of nanoindentation (indentation)

Dear All,

We (the NanoBIO Node at Illinois ) have a preliminary release of an online finite element analysis of nanoindentation (indentation) tool using FEAP

This preliminary release is limited to linear elastic material, axisymmetric geometry, spherical rigid indenter, and various boundary conditions.

I'm study about shell and i need some ebooks to read. Coud you here give me some? Thanks a lot.

## Radiation in 1D beam finite elements

Hi everyone,

Has anyone ever come across the treatment of radiation heat transfer in one-dimensional beams using FEM ? Convection and conduction are well established, but I was wondering whether radiation is still an open area of research?

Any links to publications would be very much appreciated, Thank you

## Problems with numerical integration of discontinuous functions

Choose a channel featured in the header of iMechanica:

Hi everybody,

I am a very beginnerin doing research :-) and my topic is about "micro indentation analysis using continuum dislocation theory". I am applying high-order finite element method for this nonlinear problem.

My plan is first writing a subroutine for the element. However, when I intend to compute the internal force by using Gauss integration, I see a problem with the integrand function of some index of the internal force vector. This integrand is discontinuous function. It is therefore, I cannot get a good approximation with the standard Gauss integration.
