1. Simple Questions

(1) What are the two most important ideas of the finite element method?

Answer:

Discretization and piecewise polynomial approximation.

(2) How to improve the accuracy of your numerical results obtained by the

finite element method and why will it work?

Answer:

To improve the accuracy of the numerical results, one can either refine mesh,

i.e., use more elements or increase the order of polynomials used for

approximating unknown functions. Both of them would reduce the errors

since the accuracy depends on the element size and the order of

approximation.

(3) What is the minimum number of linear elements required to obtain the

exact solution for the following truss structure using FEM? Discretize the

truss. Label clearly the elements and global nodes. List the element

connectivity matrix.

Answer:

The minimum number of linear elements required is 3. The vertical member is

actually a zero-force member. It would not carry any load (think why this is

the case). Thus the horizontal member can be modeled using only one

element.

3. A stepped shaft ACB having solid circular cross sections with two different

diameters is held against rotation at the ends. If the maximum shear stress allowed

in the shaft is 200 MPa, what is the maximum torque (To) that may be applied at

the section C? The unit of all dimensions is cm.

S:

The stepped shaft can be divided into two elements as shown in figure. The local

element equation of each element is expressed as

Element I

(1) Discretize the beam and write down element equation for each element.

(2) Assemble the system and write down the global system.

(3) Form the condensed system by imposing boundary conditions and loading

conditions.
