Finite Elements Principles and Practices - Fall 03 1-Dimensional Finite Elements 1.Stiffness and Load Vector Formulations for mechanical, heat transfer and fluid flow problems. The system equation to be solved can be written in matrix form as: [K] { } = {q} Where [K] is traditional known as the stiffness or coefficient matrix (conductance matrix for heat transfer, flow-resistance matrix for fluid flow), { } is the displacement (or temperature, or velocity) vector and {q} is the force (or thermal load, or pressure gradient) vector.

Finite Elements Principles and Practices - Fall 03 A) For heat transfer problem in 1-dimensional, we have: fx = -Kdt/dx [Fourier Heat Conduction Equation] Q = -KAdt/dx (where Q=A fx) [KT}{T} = {Q} [applicable for steady-state heat transfer problems] 1 5 T base =100 o C T amb =20 o C 5

Finite Elements Principles and Practices - Fall 03 B) For fluid flow problem in 1-dimensional, we have: d 2 u/dy 2 – dp/dx = 0 [K F }{u} = {P} [applicable for steady-state flow problems]. P – pressure gradient

5
Finite Elements Principles and Practices - Fall 03 C) For stress problem in 1-dimensional, we have: d 2 u/dx 2 – q = 0 [K F }{u} = {F}. F – joint force. u=u o = 0 How about for a tube under pure torsion? How will the coefficients look like?
