The Importance of Nonlinear Analysis
Linear analysis of structures is the most commonly performed type of finite element analysis, primarily due to its simplicity and ease of set up. However, nature is inherently nonlinear and the linear approximations may lead to inaccurate, over-designs and/or unsafe designs. It is important to understand the sources of nonlinearities and their effect on your designs during their lifetime, so that you can design products for performance and durability. With the help of appropriate nonlinear simulation solutions, users can simulate product behaviors accurately, reducing the probability of unwanted failures and warranty costs, while saving on material costs.
