A continuous field of a certain domain having infinite degrees of freedom is approximated by a set of piecewise continuous models with a number of finite regions called elements. The number of unknowns defined as nodes are determined using a given relationship i.e.{F}=[K]*{d}.

Domain

Subdomain e

Red line-Continuous field over the entire domain. Blue line-Finite number of linear approximations with the finite number of elements

General Steps

1) Discretize the domain

a) Divide domain into finite elements using appropriate element types (1-D, 2-D, 3-D, or Axisymmetric)

a) Define a function within each element using the nodal values

3) Define the Strain/Displacement and Stress/strain Relationships 4) Derive the Element Stiffness Matrix and Equations

a)Derive the equations within each element

General Steps

5) Assemble the Element Equations to Obtain the Global or Total Equations and Introduce Boundary Conditions

a)Add element equations by method of superposition to obtain global equation

6) Solve for the Unknown Degrees of Freedom (i.e primary unknowns) 7) Solve for the Element Strains and Stresses 8) Interpret the Results

For a 1-D bar, the stiffness matrix is derived from the stress/strain relationship in Hookes law and the definitions of stress and strain. x = Ex. ; x = P/A ; x = du/dx = (d2x d1x)/L

By substitution: -f1x = EA (d2x d1x) L E L A f2 f1 f1x = EA (d1x d2x) d1x d2x L Similarly for f2x: f2x = EA (d2x d1x) L Combining into matrix form, the stiffness matrix is defined as [k] = EA 1 -1 L -1 1

For a given set of nodes there exists a function that approximates the displacement at any position along the bar. This function, called the displacement function, is derived from Pascals Triangle. A new constant is introduced into the function for every node in the discretized domain.

For 1-D

If a 1-D bar is broken into 2 elements, the displacement function would be u(x) = a + a x + a x2.

1 2 3

Putting it into matrix notation: u(x) = [1 x x2] By knowing the distances to the nodes and the displacements at those nodes, the equation becomes: u1 1 0 0 2 u2 1 x x 2 2 = u3 1 x 3 x32

a1 a2 a3 a1 a2 a3

, where

x1 = 0, x2 and x3 are the distances to the nodes and u1, u2, and u3 are the displacements

The coefficients are found by solving the equation.

Example

E a A b L

2E

A P

Determine displacements of materials a and b if the load P is applied to the end of the bar given the above information.

Example cont.

1) Discretize the domain with appropriate elements. Element a f1 1 u1 Element b 2 u2 3 u3 f22 2 u2 f3 = P

f1

1 u1

2 f21

u2

3

u3

f3 = P

Example cont.

2) Select a displacement function There will be new term for each element, and the terms are 1 u1 derived from Pascals triangle. 2 u2 3 u3

Example cont.

3) Define stress/displacement and stress/strain relationships x = Ex x = du/dx 4) Derive the element stiffness matrix and element equations {F} = [k]{d} [k] = stiffness matrix {F} = Force {d} = displacement a f1 f21 [k] = EA 1 -1 L -1 1 b u1 u2 f22 f3 EA 2 -2 = L -2 2

EA 1 -1 = L -1 1

u2 u3

Example cont.

5) Construct Global equation and introduce boundary conditions and known variables. 1 -1 f1 EA = f21+f22 L -1 3 f3 0 -2 0

Global Equation

Example cont.

6) Solve for unknowns. f1 0 P 1 -1 EA = L -1 3 0 -2 0 u2 u3 P = EA(2u3-2u2) L

0 f1 = -EAu2 L

u2 = PL EA

-2

0 = EA(3u2-2u3) L

u3 = 3PL 2EA

f1 = -P

Example cont.

7) Solve for the element strains and stresses. a = P = u2 EA L a = Ea = P A a = 2E b = P 3 A

b = 3P = u3 2EA L

8) Interpret the Results

After solving for the displacements, the coefficients of the displacement function can be determined.
