The basic problem in any engineering design is to evaluate displacements,

stresses and strains in any given structure under different loads and boundary

conditions. Several approaches of Finite Element Analysis have been developed

to meet the needs of specific applications. The common methods are:

Displacement method -Here the structure is subjected to applied loads and/or

specified displacements. The primary unknowns are displacements, obtained by

inversion of the stiffness matrix, and the derived unknowns are stresses and

strains. Stiffness matrix for any element can be obtained by variational

principle, based on minimum potential energy of any stable structure and,

hence, this is the most commonly used method.

FINITE ELEMENT ANALYSIS

**Force method **-Here the structure is subjected to applied loads and/or

specified displacements. The primary unknowns are member forces, obtained

by inversion of the flexibility matrix, and the derived unknowns are stresses and

strains. Calculation of flexibility matrix is possible only for discrete structural

elements (such as trusses, beams and piping) and hence, this method is limited

in the early analyses of discrete structures and in piping analysis

**Mixed method **-Here the structure is subjected to applied loads and/or

specified displacements. The ·method deals with large stiffness coefficients as

well as very small flexibility coefficients in the same matrix. Analysis by this

method leads to numerical errors and is not possible except in some very special

cases.

**Hybrid method **-Here the structure is subjected to applied loads and stress

boundary conditions. This deals with special cases, such as airplane dour frame

which should be designed for stress-free boundary, so that the door can be

opened during flight, in cases of emergencies.

**Displacement method **is the most common method and is suitable for solving

most of the engineering problems. The discussion in the remaining chapters is

confined to displacement method.
