Finite Elements In Fracture Mechanics Theory Numerics Applications Solid Mechanics And Its Applications -

applied mechanics of solids a f bower chapter 1 - solid mechanics is increasingly being used for applications other than structural and mechanical engineering design these are active research areas and some are better developed than others, what is the status of open source finite element code - we use feap quite a bit here in the computational mechanics laboratory at duke university and have also used abaqus in the past moreover several of our former ph d students now work for abaqus
