Levit, Itzhak (1983) A general solution strategy for large scale static and dynamic nonlinear finite element problems employing the element-by-element factorization concept. Dissertation (Ph.D.), California Institute of Technology. http://resolver.caltech.edu/CaltechETD:etd-09012006-080048
It is proposed to solve large-scale finite-element equation systems arising in structural and solid mechanics by way of an element-by-element approximate factorization technique which obviates the need for a global coefficient matrix. The procedure has considerable operation count and I/O advantages over direct elimination schemes and it is easily implemented. Numerical results demonstrate the effectiveness of the method and suggest its potential for the analysis of large-scale systems.
