**Finite Element Method (FEM)
**

A continuous function of a continuum (given

domain ) having infinite degrees of freedom is replaced by a discrete model, approximated by a set of piecewise continuous functions having a finite degree of freedom.

In FEM the domain is subdivided into sub domain and in each sub domain a piecewise continuous function is assumed. which has been obtained by solving governing DE/PDE. f f x Subdomain e Domain divided with subdomains with degrees of freedom f1 f2 f3 f5 f4 f6 x . Let the field quantity flow through the body.General Example • A bar subjected to some excitations like applied force at one end.

Solve for the Unknown Degrees of Freedom 7. Derive the Element Stiffness Matrix & Equations 5. Define the Strain/Displacement & Stress/Strain Relationships 4.General Steps of the FEM 1. Select a Displacement Function 3. Solve for the Element Strains & Stresses 8. Assemble the Element Equations to Obtain the Global & Introduce Boundary Conditions 6. Discretize & Select the Element Types 2. Interpret the Results .

Discretize & Select the Element Types Divide the body into equivalent systems of finite elements with nodes and the appropriate element type Element Types: One-dimensional (Line) Element Two-dimensional Element Three-dimensional Element Axisymmetric Element .

One Dimensional Element .

Select a Displacement Function There will be a displacement function for each element .

Pascal’s Triangle .

Define Strain Displacement & Stress/Strain Relationships For one-dimensional. Deformation in the x-direction. strain e is related to the displacement u [B] – Matrix relating strain to nodal displacement du d[N] {d} [B]{d} dx dx 1 [ B] [ 1 1] L e Hooke’s Law is used for the stress/strain relationship .

sxEex To Stiffness Matrix .

dUe is the element internal energy dWe is the element external energy Please view the integration sheet .Derive the Element Stiffness Matrix & Equations Virtual work principle of a deformable body in equilibrium is subjected to arbitrary virtual displacement satisfying compatibility condition (admissible displacement). then the virtual work done by external loads will be equal to virtual strain energy of internal stresses.

Stiffness Matrix fe – Element Force ke – Element Stiffness Matrix de – Element Displacement E – Young Modulus A – Cross Section Area L .Length .

which is known as the global matrix This is done by combining each [ke] into their proper location on the global matrix {F} = [K]{D} Capital letters represent the same as the element stiffness matrix.Assemble Equations for Global Matrix & Introduce Boundary Conditions Combine each element stiffness matrix into one. but for global matrix .

displacements.e. we can now eliminate some variables and solve for the unknowns. i. end forces .Solve for Unknown DOF’s Using the global matrix with the boundary conditions.

Solve for Element Strains & Stresses Interpret Results Solve for the stress using the equation below To interpret the results use the FBD with your found values or use the computer program Algor .

FEM Steps (Displacement Method) Discretize into finite elements. Identify nodes & elements Develop element stiffness matrices [ke] for all elements Assemble element stiffness matrices to get the global stiffness matrix Apply kinematic boundary conditions Solve for displacements Finally solve for element forces and stresses by picking proper rows .

Example .

.

We combine the two stiffness matrices into the global matrix. .

.

the end forces and stress values can be obtained by reverting back to the individual element stiffness matrices For the stress. Now that the displacement at u2 has been obtained. you only need to look at the individual node of the stifness equation Reactions .

Element Forces .

Element Stresses .

averaged values of the crosssectional areas should be used for the elements.Final Notes For this case. since we are using the displacement based FEM . The displacements must be found first to find the stresses. Smaller finite elements will not help For tapered bars. the calculated stresses in elements 1 & 2 are exact within the linear theory for 1-D bar structures.

Assignment Write the displacement functions for the following elements: Analyze the bar shown below for: (a) Displacement at B (b) End Forces (c) Average Stresses in bar AB & BC .
