16 FEM: The big picture General Structural Analysis Problem Structure Geometry Material properties Boundary conditions: Essential BCs (prescribed displacement) Natural BCs (tractions) We want to know the states (displacement, strains, stresses ) throughout the structure. 16

17 Governing relations to be satisfied: (1) Constitutive relations: relation between stresses and strains (determined by material properties) (2) Kinematic relations: relation between displacement and strains (usually in the form of differential equations) (3) Equilibrium of forces (usually in the weak form of the Principle of Virtual Work, the Principle of Stationary Potential Energy, or the vanishing of weighted residuals) Closed form solution is not possible for a general case. Approximate numerical solution is employed: the FEA. 17

18 Simulation process (broad view) Beam theory Plate theory Finite element methods IDEALIZATION DISCRETIZATION SOLUTION Physical system Mathematical system Discrete Model Discrete Solution Modeling + discretization + solution error Discretization + solution error Solution error change models (e.g. beam solid) e.g. adaptive remeshing e.g. iterative refinement The above flowchart is based on the one given in Felippa s book 18

19 Finite Element Analysis Procedure Discretization (divide the structure into small, simple elements) z Localization (obtain the behavior of each element) x y K e u e e f Globalization (Assembly) (relate all elements based on the connectivity) Ku f Solution and post processing (solve for state variables and recover quantities of interest, such as stress) 19
