2-Dimensional Finite Elements 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] {D} = {q} Where [K] is traditional known as the ‘stiffness’ or ‘coefficient’ matrix (conductance matrix for heat transfer, flow-resistance matrix for fluid flow), {D} is the displacement (or temperature, or velocity) vector and {q} is the force (or thermal load, or pressure gradient) vector.

C) For plane elasticity problem in 2-dimensional, we have: Plane Problems – are also known as Plane Elasticity Problems Plane – a flat element with constant thickness There are two types of plane problems Plane Stress – thickness of the third dimension of an elastic body is very small. Plane Strain - thickness of the third dimension of an elastic body is infinitely large. Sigma_XZ = Sigma_YZ = Sigma_ZZ = 0 t=infinity Finite Elements Principles and Practices - Fall 03
