MECh300H Introduction to Finite Element Methods

Finite Element Analysis (F.E.A.) of 1-D Problems

Historical Background

- Hrenikoff, 1941 frame work method
- Courant, 1943 piecewise polynomial

interpolation - Turner, 1956 derived stiffness matrice for

truss, beam, etc - Clough, 1960 coined the term finite element

Key Ideas - frame work method

piecewise polynomial approximation

Axially Loaded Bar Governing Equations and

Boundary Conditions

- Differential Equation
- Boundary Condition Types
- prescribed displacement (essential BC)
- prescribed force/derivative of displacement

(natural BC)

Axially Loaded Bar Boundary Conditions

- Examples
- fixed end
- simple support
- free end

Potential Energy

- Elastic Potential Energy (PE)

- Spring case

- Total Potential Energy

- Principle of Minimum Potential Energy

For conservative systems, of all the

kinematically admissible displacement

fields, those corresponding to equilibrium

extremize the total potential energy. If the

extremum condition is a minimum, the equilibrium

state is stable.

Potential Energy Rayleigh-Ritz Approach

Example

B

Step 1 assume a displacement field

f is shape function / basis function n is the

order of approximation

Step 2 calculate total potential energy

Step 3select ai so that the total potential

energy is minimum

Galerkins Method

Example

Seek an approximation so

In the Galerkins method, the weight function is

chosen to be the same as the shape function.
