1. General introduction to finite element method Finite Element Method: FEM The finite element method (FEM), or finite element analysis (FEA), is based on the idea of building a complicated object with simple blocks, or, dividing a complicated object into small and manageable pieces (discretization). Elements 9 9 Finite element model consists of elements and nodes.

1. General introduction to finite element method Fundemental Concepts FEM in Structural Analysis Procedures: · Divide structure into pieces (elements with nodes) · Describe the behavior of the physical quantities on each element · Connect (assemble) the elements at the nodes to form an approximate system of equations for the whole structure · Solve the system of equations involving unknown quantities at the nodes (e.g., displacements) · Calculate desired quantities (e.g., strains and stresses) at selected elements ME Dr. Ahmet Zafer Şenalp Mechanical Engineering Department, GTU

1. General introduction to finite element method Fundemental Concepts Objectives of This FEM Course · Understand the fundamental ideas of the FEM · Know the behavior and usage of each type of elements covered in this course · Be able to prepare a suitable FE model for given problems · Can interpret and evaluate the quality of the results (know the physics of the problems) · Be aware of the limitations of the FEM (don’t misuse the FEM - a numerical tool) ME Dr. Ahmet Zafer Şenalp Mechanical Engineering Department, GTU

1. General introduction to finite element method Fundemental Concepts Linear Static Analysis Many of structural engineering problems can be threated as linear static problem with the acceptance of the following assumptions. Small deformations (loading pattern do not change with deformation) Materials are elastic Loads are static (load is applied slowly and uniformly) Linear static analysis gives an idea about the behavior of the structure and can be accepted as a good approach for many of the analyses. Also for many cases static analysis is the base for nonlinear analysis. Within this course only static analysis subjects will be covered.
