Nonlinear finite element analysis consists of the development of a model, formulation, discretization and solution of the governing equations and interpretation of the results. Here this is applied to continua - continuous series or wholes ranging between two extremes - and structures. It is an essential component of computer-aided design, as testing of prototypes is increasingly being replaced by simulation, with nonlinear finite element methods providing a more rapid and less expensive way to evaluate design concepts and details.
