Model Order Reduction (MOR) in nonlinear structural analysis problems in usually carried out by a Galerkin projection of the primary variables on a sensibly smaller space. However, the cost of computing the nonlinear terms is still of the order of the full system. The Discrete Empirical Interpolation Method (DEIM) is an effective algorithm to reduce the computational cost of the nonlinear terms of the discretized governing equations. However, its efficiency is diminished when applied to a Finite Element (FE) framework. We present here an alternative formulation of the DEIM that suits FE discretized problems and preserves the efficiency and the accuracy of the original DEIM method.
