Computational issues regarding lattice models for wood

Conference Proceeding
Reichert, T., & Ridley-Ellis, D. (2010)
Computational issues regarding lattice models for wood. In A. Ceccotti (Ed.), 11th World Conference on Timber Engineering 2010 (WCTE 2010), (2127-2132
This paper describes means to overcome some of the computational issues related to lattice models. The first is the use of a solution technique, different from a Newton-Raphso...
