Following the recent publication of the book “Equilibrium Finite Element Formulations” by Moitinho de Almeida and Maunder, this talk will outline the significance, recent developments, and some applications of this relatively unfamiliar finite element method. Although the basic concepts underlying this method were realized in the early days of finite elements, the more conventional conforming element models based on assumed displacements, with consequent weakened equilibrium, won the day. However the alternative complementary method based on assumed equilibrating stress fields is preparing to make its comeback!
