Abstract
Structural engineers significantly rely on the ubiquitous Finite Element Method (FEM) for mod - eling the physical behavior of their designs. How - ever, when it comes to certain types of nonlinearities either geometric, material or loading related (crack - ing, fracture, terrain-structure interaction, large dis - placements, textile structures...), this method pres - ents some limitations that lead to either less accurate models or numerical instabilities. In the recent past, a discipline named...
