<p>We are really glad to hear that you like the software and are grateful for the suggestion. I assume that you are interested in modeling non-linear material behavior (is this right?). If so, this fundamentally changes the nature of the assumed mechanics model, making computations much more difficult. Specifically, if I understand your message correctly, the solution now depends on the value of strain, and strain itself is an unknown to be solved for. These kinds of situations…</p>
<p>We are really glad to hear that you like the software and are grateful for the suggestion. I assume that you are interested in modeling non-linear material behavior (is this right?). If so, this fundamentally changes the nature of the assumed mechanics model, making computations much more difficult. Specifically, if I understand your message correctly, the solution now depends on the value of strain, and strain itself is an unknown to be solved for. These kinds of situations require iterative solution procedures, where a linear model is solved at every iteration ... and the solution may or may not converge. So yes, this can be done, and we will ad this to the list, but this is a fairly major undertaking. </p>
