Modeling Overview: Nonlinear Materials
The Nonlinear Structural Materials Module and Geomechanics Module, add-on products to the COMSOL Multiphysics® software, expand the functionality and features available for modeling nonlinear material behavior for your structural analyses and geophysics applications, respectively. In this previously held webinar, we briefly introduce the COMSOL Multiphysics® software before going over the different ways that material models can be classified in structural mechanics. Thereafter, we introduce the many nonlinear material model types that can be simulated and discuss some nonlinear material behaviors in detail. The webinar concludes with building a model, from start to finish, of the necking of an elastoplastic metal bar in COMSOL Multiphysics®.
