3D finite element solution of induction heating problems with efficient timestepping
In this paper a method for the induction heating problem solution in three dimensions is presented. This method couples the transient heat conduction equation associated to convective and radiative boundary conditions with the electromagnetic system modeled by the A {psi}{phi} method. THe nonlinearities associated to the variation of parameters with the temperature as well as the modeling of the Curie point are also included. Particular attention is given to the time stepping scheme which allows a timestep variation based on the estimation of the error due to time discretization and to the incomplete solution of the problem's nonlinearity.

Finite element solution algorithm for nonlinear thermal problems with severe gradients
An implicit enthalpy  flux component finite element algorithm is presented for nonlinear thermal problems with severe gradients. The algorithm is formulated to permit efficient solution of nonlinear heat transfer problems for unstructured meshes with a large range of element sizes. Two transient conduction examples illustrate the effectiveness of the approach for problems with high temperatures and steep gradients. 8 references. 
On the finite element solution of inverse problems in solid mechanics
This paper presents a numerical procedure for solving inverse/parameter identification problems in solid mechanics. Given exterior measurements the algorithm is capable of identifying geometric and material parameters within an inaccessible region. The algorithm incorporates the finite element (FE) method and its substructuring capabilities in conjunction with nonlinear programming techniques to solve for the unknown design parameters. To demonstrate the generality and effectiveness of the proposed method, a parameter identification problem of subsurface cavity detection is examined. In particular, the twodimensional problem of an inclusion with a circular periphery and arbitrarily chosen interior geometry, in an irregularly shaped plate, is considered.more » 
Solution of elasticplastic stress analysis problems by the Pversion of the finite element method
The solution of smallstrain elasticplastic stress analysis problems by the pversion of the finite element method is discussed. The formulation is based on the deformation theory of plasticity and the displacement method. Practical realization of controlling discretization errors for elasticplastic problems is the main focus of the paper. Numerical examples, which include comparisons between the deformation and incremental theories of plasticity under tight control of discretization errors, are presented.
