-- A numerical method. -- Traditionally, a branch of Solid Mechanics. -- Nowadays, a commonly used method for multiphysics problems.

-- Structure analysis: a cantilever, a bridge, an oil platform -- Solid mechanics: a gear, a automotive power train -- Dynamics: vibration of Sears Tower, earthquake, bullet impact -- Thermal analysis: heat radiation of finned surface, thermal stress brake disc -- Electrical analysis: piezo actuator, electrical signal propagation -- Biomaterials: human organs and tissues --

FEA is originally developed for solving solid mechanics problem. Solid Mechanics:

Object: A Solid with known mechanical properties. (Mr. Potato; a shaft; human tissue) Concepts:

Boundary: The surface enclosing the geometry Solid: Interior + Boundary Boundary conditions: Any prescribed quantities, such as prescribed displacements and prescribed tractions on the boundary

deformed Question: If we apply a force on a solid, what are the values of the displacements, stresses, and strains at EACH MATERIAL POINT?

To answer this question, we need to solve the following equations:

u j u 1 eij = i + 2 X j X i

ij = 2Geij + ekk ij

i1 i 2 i 3 + + + fi = 0 X 1 X 2 X 3

We need to solve a problem consisting of total 15 equations, among which 9 equations are partial differential equations!! Finding an exact solution:

Then:

Mission changes to find a solution that APPROXIMATES the exact solution.

FEA is a numerical method that offers a means to find this Approximate Solution.

Before we start to look at how FEA works, lets first review some calculus

The integration represents the area under the curve

Integration using numerical methods:

Numerical integration

Scheme 1: 1. Divide the interval of integration into N section; 2. Choose a function to approximate the variation of f (x) in each section; the simplest such function is a constant function that equals to the value of f (x) at the mid-point of each section. 3. The product of this constant function and the length of the section approximates the integration of f (x) over this section. 4. Summing the products for all sections gives an approximate answer to the integration of f (x) over (-1,1)

y = x2 + 6

y = x2 + 6

x

N=1, F=12, Error= -5.26% N=2, F=12.5, Error= -1.32%

Integration using numerical methods:

Numerical integration

y = x2 + 6

y = x2 + 6

x

N=4, F=12.625, Error=-0.33% N=8, F=12.656, Error=-0.08%

Integration using numerical methods:

Numerical integration

Scheme 2: Same as Scheme 1, except that we choose a linear function in each section to approximate the variation of f (x). This linear function takes the same value and slope of f (x) at the mid-point of that section.

y = x2 + 6

y = x2 + 6

Integration using numerical methods: Two key steps: 1. 2. Divide the interval of integration. In each sub-interval, choose proper simple functions to approximate the true function.

Two key features: 1. 2. The numerical result is an approximation to exact solution. The accuracy of numerical result depends on the number of sub-interval and approximate function.
