Paper Abstract

Attempts to numerically analyze problems which have been solved by classical methods have been and continue to be the major stimuli for the development and refinement of general finite element analysis strategies. This perhaps is not well appreciated, especially by those new to the field. Demonstrations are given in discussions of three topics of current interest: the performance of distorted isoparametric elements, stress analysis of bonded materials and step size selection in elastic-plastic analysis.
