Sur une famille d’algorithmes en mécanique des structures. (An algorithm family in structural mechanics). (French) Zbl 0597.73089
The paper introduces a new algorithm family taking into account the nonlinearity of the material. The algorithm inolves three parameters and its convergence is established for materials that are ’stable’ in the sense of Drucker and with some restrictions on the parameters. Plastic and viscopastic materials qualify for these conditions.
