DEFINITION OF SPRING ELEMENT
k What is the relation between forces acting on spring ends and displacements of these ends? Or, using FEA terminology, what is the relation between nodal displacements and forces acting on these nodes? To formulate this relation we must first assume displacement pattern in-between nodes. Let’s assume linear displacement: We assume linear displacement along the length of element. This is our displacement interpolation function. 0 ≤ x ≤ L The displacement function has as many coefficients as the element has degrees of freedom, in this case 2

DEFINITION OF SPRING ELEMENT
We now want to express displacement u along the element as a function of nodal displacements This is the relation between nodal displacements and displacements along the length of elements (i.e. in-between nodes)

DEFINITION OF SPRING ELEMENT
The same can be written in matrix form: where are called shape functions

DEFINITION OF SPRING ELEMENT
k Let’s say that element experiences force T This force causes nodal displacements and Relation between force and nodal displacements Force acting on node 1 Force acting on node 2 This matrix relates nodal displacements of spring element to forces acting on nodes of that element. This matrix is called element stiffness matrix

DEFINITION OF SPRING ELEMENT
Element stiffness matrix describes relation between nodal loads and nodal displacement of an element. This is matrix is: Square Symmetric Singular (determinant equals zero) Positive Diagonal Terms

TWO SPRINGS IN SERIES Expanded matrices of elements 1 and 2 can now be added to form the global stiffness matrix Relation between nodal displacements and nodal forces has been formed: Global stiffness matrix Vector of nodal displacements Vector of nodal loads These matrixes been expanded before global stiffness matrix could be assembled. The process in which individual matrices are expanded and then added to form global stiffness matrix is called Direct Stiffness Method also known as the displacement method or matrix stiffness method

STIFFNESS MATRIX CHARACTERISTICS
Symmetric This means that kij = kji. This is always the case when the displacements are directly proportional to the applied loads. Square The number of rows are equal to the number of columns in the matrix. Singular The element stiffness matrix is singular (the determinate of the matrix is equal to zero) since no constraints (prescribed displacements and/or rotation) have been applied. Positive Diagonal Terms All the terms in the main diagonal (upper left to lower right) must be positive. If kii is negative then the force and it's corresponding displacement would be oppositely directed, which is physically unreasonable. If kii = 0, then the displacement would produce no reaction force resisting it, which would imply that the structure is unstable.

WHY IS STIFFNESS MATRIX SYMMETRIC?
BETTI’S THEOREM* (RECIPROCITY THEOREM) Betti’s theorem, discovered by Enrico Betti in 1872 states that for all linear elastic structures subject to two sets of forces Pi and Qi, the work done by the set P though the displacement produced by set Q is equal to the work done be the set Q through displacements produced by set P. *A theorem is a statement which has been proved on the basis of previously established statements, such as other theorems, and previously accepted statements, such as axioms

WHY IS STIFFNESS MATRIX SYMMETRIC?
Betti’s theorem example Consider a beam on which two points 1 and 2 have been defined. First we apply force P at point 1 and measure the vertical displacement of point 2. Then we remove force P and apply force Q at point 2. Betti’s reciprocity theorem states that: P Q 1 2 ΔP1 ΔQ1

Number of unknowns equals the number of equations
WHY IS STIFFNESS MATRIX SQUARE? Number of unknowns equals the number of equations

WHY IS STIFFNESS MATRIX SINGULAR?
Displacement boundary conditions have not yet been defined

WHY ARE ALL TERMS ON THE MAIN DIAGONAL MUST BE POSITIVE?
Negative terms would indicate negative stiffness. Zero terms would indicate no stiffness in given direction.
