Abstract [en]

Procedures for automatic step size control in non-linear structural equilibrium analyses are discussed. Some algorithms found in the literature are briefly described and compared. The main emphasis is given to the development of criteria for detecting the need for a change of the step size as early as possible. Hence, the size of the increment is controlled during the corrector phase. Two possible procedures for this are developed and compared. Both reduce the step size in highly curved parts of an equilibrium path. The performance of the proposed algorithm is demonstrated in some numerical examples, including both geometrical and material non-linearities. The conclusions are that a procedure for reduction of the step size within the step can give improved possibilities for convergence in the iterations. The need for suitable scaling of used variables in any continuation algorithm is also emphasized. © 1995.
