10–3 §10.2 ISOPARAMETRIC DEFINITION

§10.1. INTRODUCTION

In this Chapter we consider the ﬁnite element discretization of structures of revolution (SOR). The

focus in this Chapter will be on isoparametric elements, so as to tie with the introductory course.

The dimensionality reduction process described in Chapter 9 “folds” the problem into integrals

taken over the generating cross section and its boundaries. The ﬁnite element discretization can be

therefore conﬁned to the r –z plane and the circumferential (θ) dimension conceptually disappears.

The resulting ﬁnite elements are called axisymmetric solid elements, SOR elements, or “ring”

elements in the literature. They are deﬁned completely by the geometry of their cross section in the

(r, z) plane, as illustrated in Figure 10.1. Because this cross section is plane, the element geometry

deﬁnition is two-dimensional. It follows that the two-dimensional element conﬁgurations studied

in IFEM: 3 and 6-node triangles, 4-, 8-, and 9-node quadrilaterals, etc, can be used.

The key difference with respect to the plane stress case is the appearance of the “hoop” strain and

stress, which together contribute a term

2 θθ θθ

(10.1)

to the strain energy density. This in turn introduces some additional terms in the structure of the

strain-displacement matrix B, which translate into additional contributions in the formation of the

element stiffness matrix and consistent node force vector.

Axisymmetric ﬁnite elements are developed in this Chapter using the displacement-based isopara-

metric formulation. That is, the element cross section geometry and displacement ﬁeld are inter-

polated by the same shape functions. For an isoparametric element with n nodes:

2

z = z1 z2 · · · zn . . (10.2)

..

ur ur 1 ur 2 · · · ur n

uz u z1 u z2 · · · u zn Nn(e)

Here u r (r, z) and u z (r, z) are ﬁnite element approximations to the actual displacement ﬁeld com-

ponents, while Ni(e) are the usual element shape functions in element natural coordinates deﬁned in

the Introduction to Finite Element Methods (IFEM) course. The same continuity and completeness

requirements apply with minor differences (see remarks below).

REMARK 10.1

Displacement based elements are based on the TPE functional. The variational index for the only master ﬁeld:

displacements, is one. Consequently the interelement continuity required is C 0 . That is, the displacement

components u r and u z must be continuous between adjacent elements. Element boundaries lying on the axis

of revolution are special: at such points the radial displacement u r must vanish if the structure is continuous

there (that is, a tiny hole is precluded) although there is no need to make that condition explicit in the element

formulation.

10–5 §10.3 THE ELEMENT STIFFNESS MATRIX

REMARK 10.2

The completeness criterion demands that all rigid body modes and strain states be exactly represented. This

is met if the element shape functions can represent any displacement ﬁeld that is linear in r and z. (In fact, a

more detailed analysis shows that this is a slight overkill, but will do for now.)

The strain-displacement matrix that appears in the computation of the element stiffness matrix is

given by

B = DN (10.3)

where D is the strain-displacement gradient matrix introduced in the previous Chapter,

∂

and N is the matrix of element shape functions:

N1(e) N2(e) ··· Nn(e) 0 0 ··· 0

N= , (10.5)

0 0 ··· 0 N1(e) N2(e) ··· Nn(e)

Here we have assumed that the same shape functions are used in both r and z directions.

Comparing these expressions with those in Chapter 15 of IFEM, we see that N is the same, and D

has an extra row. Multiplying (10.3) through we obtain

Let the constitutive (stress-strain) matrix be

E E 22 E 23 E 24

E = 12 , (10.8)

E 13 E 23 E 33 0

E 14 E 24 0 E 44

in which E 34 = E 43 = 0 to maintain axisymmetry conditions. First we form the product

E 11 qr + E 13 qθ + E 14 qz E 12 qz + E 14 qr c1r c1z

E q + E 23 qθ + E 24 qz E 22 qz + E 24 qr c2r c2z

EB = 12 r = . (10.9)

E 13 qr + E 33 qθ E 23 qz c3r c3z

E 14 qr + E 44 qz E 24 qz + E 44 qr c4r c4z

T

Premultiplying by B gives

Srr Sr z

B EB =

(10.10)

Sr z Szz

in which

Srr = qrT c1r + qθT c3r + qzT c4r

Sr z = Szr

T

= qrT c1z + qθT c3z + qzT c4z (10.11)

Szz = qrT c4z + qzT c2z

We shall assume here that the entries of the element stiffness matrix are computed by the standard

numerical integration techniques covered in IFEM. For example, the stiffness matrix of a quadrilat-

eral isoparametric element integrated by a p-point Gauss rule along each isoparametric coordinate

is evaluated as

p p

K(e) = wk wl BT (ξk , η

) E B(ξk , η

) r (ξk η

) J (ξk , η

). (10.12)

k=1

=1

denote abcissae of Gauss points whereas wk and w

denote integration

weights.

Notice the appearance of the radius r at the Gauss point; this quantity also appears inside B in the

form 1/r . This radius is obtained by the isoparametric interpolation, namely, the ﬁrst row of (10.6):

n

r (ξk , η

) = ri Ni(e) (ξk , η

). (10.13)

i=1

Other quantities such as the Jacobian determinant J , are calculated as explained in IFEM. In

particular the shape function subroutines can be reused, as explained in more detail in the following

Chapter.

The stiffness of triangular elements can also be evaluated by numerical quadrature but using inte-

gration rules appropriate to the triangular geometry.

10–7 §10.4 CONSISTENT NODE FORCES FOR BODY LOADS

Body forces (also called volume forces) arise frequently in SOR analysis. The most important loads

of this type are

1. Gravity (own weight). This effect is important in massive SOR, as encountered in civil,

geophysical and nuclear applications.

2. Centrifugal forces in rotating structures. These are important in aerospace and mechanical

structures (for examble, high-speed rotating machinery such as turbines).

3. Thermal, shrinkage and prestress effects. These may be important depending on fabrication

techniques, material, and the environment to which the structure will be exposed. In the present

course thermal effects are covered brieﬂy.

An applied body force ﬁeld b is deﬁned by two components in the r and z directions, each of which

is a function of those two directions only:

b (r, z)

b(r, z) = r (10.14)

bz (r, z)

(e)

f = NT b r d A, (10.15)

A

where N is the matrix of element shape functions given in (10.5). This can be conveniently processed

by numerical integration. Consideraing again the quadrilateral element with a p-point Gauss rule

in each direction,

p

p

(e)

f = wk wl NT (ξk , η

) b(ξk , η

) r (ξk , η

) J (ξk , η

). (10.16)

k=1

=1

Suppose the temperature of the structure changes axisymmetrically by T (r, z) from a reference

temperature. The constitutive equations become

σ = E(e − α T ) (10.17)

where α is an array of dilatation coefﬁcients that provide thermal strains in a mechanically un-

constrained body. (A linear relation between strains and temperature changes is assumed.) For

isotropic materials

αT = [ α α α 0 ] (10.18)

10–7

Chapter 10: AXISYMMETRIC ISO-P ELEMENTS 10–8

where α is the usual coefﬁcient of dilatation of the material. On inserting (10.18) into the potential

energy formulation for a generic element yields element stiffness equations that account for thermal

effects:

K(e) u(e) = f(e) = f(e)

M + fT

(e)

(10.19)

where f M are the mechanical forces condidered so far, and fT , called the thermal forces or equivalent

thermal loads, account for contribution from the temperature changes:

f(e)

T = BT α T r d A (10.20)

A

The sum of mechanical and thermal node forces is sometimes called the effective node force vector

or simply effective forces in the FEM literature.

but is recapitulated here for completeness.

The four simplest Gauss integration rules over a triangle of area A use 1, 3, 3 and 7 points. These rules are

tabulated below. In the following expressions, F(ζ1 , ζ2 , ζ3 ) denotes the function to be integrated over the

traingle, expressed in terms of the triangular coordinates ζ1 , ζ2 and ζ3 , while A is the area of the element.

One point rule (exact for constant and linear polynomials over straight sided triangles):

1

F(ζ1 , ζ2 , ζ3 ) d A(e) ≈ F( 13 , 13 , 13 ). (E10.1)

A A(e)

Three-point rules (exact for constant through quadratic polynomials over straight sided triangles):

1

F(ζ1 , ζ2 , ζ3 ) d A(e) ≈ 13 F( 23 , 16 , 16 ) + 13 F( 16 , 23 , 16 ) + 13 F( 16 , 16 , 23 ). (E10.2)

F(ζ1 , ζ2 , ζ3 ) d A(e) ≈ 13 F( 12 , 12 , 0) + 13 F(0, 12 , 12 ) + 13 F( 12 , 0, 12 ). (E10.3)

A A(e)

The latter is also called the 3-midpoint rule for obvious reasons.

Seven point rule (exact for constant through cubic polynomials over straight sided triangles):

1

F(ζ1 , ζ2 , ζ3 ) d A(e) ≈ w0 F( 13 , 13 , 13 ) + w1 [F(α1 , β1 , β1 ) + F(β1 , α1 , β1 ) + F(β1 , β1 , α1 )]

A A(e)

+ w2 [F(α2 , β2 , β2 ) + F(β2 , α2 , β2 ) + F(β2 , β2 , α2 )] ,

(E10.4)

√ √

where w0 = 9/40 = 0.225, √w1 = (155 − 15)/1200 = 0.1259391805, √ w2 = (155 + 15)/1200 =

0.1323941528,

√ α1 = (9 + 2 15)/21 = 0.7974269853,

√ β1 = (6 − 15)/21 = 0.1012865073, α2 =

(9 − 2 15)/21 = 0.0597158718, β2 = (6 + 15)/21 = 0.4701420641.

A Mathematica module that implement these rules is TrigGaussRuleInfo.nb posted in the index of this

Chapter. The use of this module is explained in Chapter 24 of the IFEM Notes.

The exact integrals are A/a for the ﬁrst one, and 12 A/a for the other two. Why are all numerical quadrature

EXERCISE 10.5

[A/C:20] The triangle of Exercise 10.4 is subjected to the radial-centrifugal body force ﬁeld

br = ρω2 r, bz = 0 (E10.18)

where ρ and ω are constant (ρ is the mass density while ω is the angular velocity.)

Compute the consistent node force vector f(e) . In doing so interpolate the radial component br linearly over

the element:

br (ζ1 , ζ2 , ζ3 ) = br 1 ζ1 + br 2 ζ2 + br 3 ζ3 , (E10.19)

where bri is ρω2 r evaluated at corner i. Partial answers: fr 1 = ωa 3 /10, f z1 = 0.

[A/C:15] Show that u z = c (c is a constant) is the only possible rigid body mode of a SOR element. (Hint:

consider the presence of the circumferential strain). Hence deduce that the correct rank of the stiffness matrix

of a SOR element with n nodes and 2 DOFs per node is 2n − 1.

EXERCISE 10.10

[A/C:15] Show that there are no displacement ﬁelds that separately generate the following constant strain

states:

err = crr , others zero (E10.23)

where crr and cθθ are constants. Hint: integrate the appropriate strain-displacement relations.

EXERCISE 10.11

[A/C:25] The SOR sketched in Figure E10.1 (a circular shaft with varying cross section) is subjected to

torsional loading as indicated. According to Saint-Venant’s torsion theory, the displacement components for

this case are entirely circumferential, that is, u r = u z = 0 and u θ = u θ (r, z). The torsional shear strains

∂u θ uθ ∂u θ

γr θ = − , γzθ = , (E10.25)

are nonzero and functions of r, z only; all other strains (err , ezz , eθθ and γr z ) vanish. Assuming the shaft is

fabricated with an isotropic material, the only nonzero stress components are the shear stresses

(a) Explain why this problem can be discretized by two-dimensional “ring” ﬁnite elements by laying out a

mesh over the (r, z) plane (r ≥ 0), although the element type is different from that considered previously

in this Chapter. How many degrees of freedoms would these “torqued ring” elements have per node?

(b) If an isoparametric formulation is used for the torqued-ring elements of (a), the element stiffness matrix,

on suppressing the 2π factor, is given by the usual expression
