AN EFFICIENT ALGORITHM FOR THE COMPUTATION OF STABILITY POINTS OF DYNAMICAL SYSTEMS UNDER STEP LOAD

AN EFFICIENT ALGORITHM FOR THE COMPUTATION OF STABILITY POINTS OF DYNAMICAL SYSTEMS UNDER STEP LOAD Many engineering structures exhibit loss of stability under static and dynamic loading. Due to the significance of these phenomena in engineering design this topic has attracted considerable attention during the last decades. In recent years much effort has been made to devise algorithms within finite element analysis to investigate the static stability behaviour of structures. With these methods stable and unstable paths can be traced, and limit or bifurcation points can be computed efficiently.

Abstract

Many engineering structures exhibit loss of stability under static and dynamic loading. Due to the significance of these phenomena in engineering design this topic has attracted considerable attention during the last decades. In recent years much effort has been made to devise algorithms within finite element analysis to investigate the static stability behaviour of structures. With these methods stable and unstable paths can be traced, and limit or bifurcation points can be computed efficiently. The associated arclength or branchswitching procedures are today standard tools in existing finite element codes.
