The Difference Between Linear and Nonlinear FEA? | Enterfea
In this article we explain in short the differences between linear and nonlinear structural analysis and provide some examples of the latter. Linear static analysis A linear static analysis is an analysis where a linear relation holds between applied forces and displacements. In practice, this is applicable to structural problems where stresses remain in the linear elastic range of the used material. Therefore, for a first estimate, the linear static analysis is often used prior to performing a full nonlinear analysis. Nonlinear analysis A nonlinear analysis is an analysis where a nonlinear relation holds between applied forces and displacements. These effects result in a stiffness matrix which is not constant during the load application.

I remember my first presentation regarding my Ph. It was my first year on the doctoral program, and I was starting to be on a first-name basis with people that were my teachers just a semester ago. I went to the middle of the room and started talking about shell buckling… the problem was everything I did was calculated with LBA.
