Analysis and Modeling in Mechanics: An Informal View
In the context of the maturation of finite element methodology this paper reviews solution approaches that combine classical analytical techniques with computer-based numerical methods. Developments in boundary integral equations, asymptotic postbuckling analysis, and limit point analysis are touched upon, as are some aspects of structural modeling. Emphasis is also placed on the importance of understanding both the scope and limitations of a particular structural model. This understanding has implications for the educator as well as for the researcher and the practicing engineer.
