In this course, we begin by discussing what variational principles are and how they can be applied to nonlinear elasticity. We then apply variational derivatives for nonlinear elasticity to develop the weak form of balance of linear momentum for static problems. Finally, we use integration by parts to transform this weak form into the strong form of nonlinear elasticity.

This course was created for Ansys Innovation Courses by Professor Krishna Garikipati and Dr. Gregory Teichert, University of Michigan, in partnership with Ansys.
