This paper deals with the advantages given by the use of domain decomposition methods to solve non-linear problems. in addition to the benefits concerning parallel computing, domain decomposition methods offer the possibility of recalculating at each step of the resolution of a non-linear problem only the sub-domains which have been modified. For non-linear problems where the non-linearity is irregularly distributed on the structure, this property may result in an important reduction of the total execution time.
