We present here how we have implemented the « RL model » ([RLT92]) in the multiphysic software FEMLAB. Beam in traction, a plate in pure shear, in proportional bitraction have been modelling. These studies will allow building some non linear "super-element" able to design composite structure, for dynamical studies with the built-in MATLAB interface.
