Geometrically and materially nonlinear beam dynamics with strain localisation

Dejan Zupan

»I am certain more elegant approaches could be found«, my supervisor often said when we had endless discussions on non-linear beams and three-dimensional rotations. I still agree, but the main challenge is to find them in the perspective of high accuracy, robustness and efficiency of numerical solution methods. Within the THREAD consortium such challenges are feasible.
