Steak, shake or break – and other applications of FEM TMA4220

Outline Present the governing equations (3 of them) Present the governing equations (3 of them) Building your FEM code Building your FEM code Mesh generation Mesh generation Experimentation Experimentation Integration with other courses Integration with other courses

Time dependent Poisson “Steak”: Heat transfer “Steak”: Heat transfer The way heat propagates through objects The way heat propagates through objects

Linear elasticity “Break”: Stress analysis “Break”: Stress analysis How things bend and deform How things bend and deform

Vibration analysis “Shake”: Eigenmode analysis “Shake”: Eigenmode analysis Natural frequency of which things oscillate Natural frequency of which things oscillate

Building your FEM code Series of problems 1a) – 3b) Gauss quadrature FEM theory Sample 2d problem Sample 3d problem Your choice and experimentation (Problem 4)

How to work On problem 1-3: answer short and answer right On problem 1-3: answer short and answer right On problem 4: Elaborate as much as possible On problem 4: Elaborate as much as possible

Mesh generation Lots of issues (probably the most understated part of FEM training) Lots of issues (probably the most understated part of FEM training) 3 options 3 options GMSH (free, easy-to-use mesh tool, readable output) GMSH (free, easy-to-use mesh tool, readable output) Pre-made by myself Pre-made by myself I’ll get back to #3 later I’ll get back to #3 later

Experimentation Find your own problem Find your own problem Choose an equation Choose an equation Choose a geometry Choose a geometry Choose an objective Choose an objective Analyze the results Analyze the results Experiment with geometry, material properties and/or boundary conditions Experiment with geometry, material properties and/or boundary conditions

Example 1: beef How to cook the optimal beef How to cook the optimal beef Choose an equation Choose an equation Choose a geometry Choose a geometry Choose an objective Choose an objective Optimality criterium? Optimality criterium? Too short cooking – raw and unedible Too short cooking – raw and unedible Too long cooking – dry and tasteless Too long cooking – dry and tasteless Too varying temperature – all of the above Too varying temperature – all of the above Experimentation Experimentation

Example 2: Structural analysis Linear elasticity Linear elasticity Choose an equation Choose an equation Choose a geometry Choose a geometry Choose an objective Choose an objective http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v5fS4RF3ht0 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v5fS4RF3ht0 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v5fS4RF3ht0 Max stress lower than material critical point Max stress lower than material critical point Will it withstand gravity? Will it withstand gravity? Will it withstand external forces? (creepers?) Will it withstand external forces? (creepers?)

Example 3: free vibration What are the natural frequencies of your geometry (and material)? What are the natural frequencies of your geometry (and material)? Choose an equation Choose an equation Choose a geometry Choose a geometry Choose an objective Choose an objective Find the natural frequencies Find the natural frequencies Resonance with enviromental frequencies (wind, noise etc) Resonance with enviromental frequencies (wind, noise etc) Sound/music (harmonic overtones) Sound/music (harmonic overtones) Purely visual Purely visual
