OptiStruct for Non-Linear Analysis

Non-Linear Static and Quasi-Static Analysis This is an introductory course for using OptiStruct to solve nonlinear problems. This course covers both the theoretical extensions of nonlinear static assumptions to include nonlinear behavior as well as the practical applications of those concepts in the OptiStruct solver. The material focuses on approaching implicit solutions as a superset of linear statics rather than as a subset of explicit cases and is focused on users with an established background in FEA linear statics.
