8 The relationshipProvides the required mapping from the local coordinate systemTo the global coordinate system and is known as isoparametric mapping(s,t): isoparametric coordinates(x,y): global coordinates
11 NOTES1. Given a point in the isoparametric coordinates, I can obtain the corresponding mapped point in the global coordinates using the isoparametric mapping equationQuestionx=? at s=0.5?

20 The element stiffness matrix NOTES1. The integral on ANY element in the global coordinates in now an integral from -1 to 1 in the local coodinates2. The jacobian is a function of ‘s’ in general and enters the integral. The specific form of ‘J’ is determined by the values of x1, x2 and x3. Gaussian quadrature is used to evaluate the stiffness matrix3. In general B is a vector of rational functions in ‘s’

23 NOTES:The isoparametric mapping provides the map (s,t) to (x,y) , i.e., if you are given a point (s,t) in isoparametric coordinates, then you can compute the coordinates of the point in the (x,y) coordinate system using the equations2. The inverse map will never be explicitly computed.

31 In isoparametric formulation Shape functions first expressed in (s,t) coordinate systemi.e., Ni(s,t)2. The isoparamtric mapping relates the (s,t) coordinates with the global coordinates (x,y)3. It is laborious to find the inverse map s(x,y) and t(x,y) and we do not do that. Instead we compute the integrals in the domain of the parent element.
32 NOTE1. Ni(s,t) s are already available as simple polynomial functions2. The first task is to find andUse chain rule
