RLS 1 – of - 6 BMED 2200 Modeling of Biomedical Systems Spring 2008 Homework 11 solution 1. For the 2-node element, the approximation for ( ) e u x is given by Eqs. (5.20) and(5.21), so that e N is: 2 1 2 1 1 2 1 2 e e e e e e e e e e e x x x x x x x x x x x x L L ! " !

Then the force vector (the part from ( ) f x ) is given by the second of Eqs. (5.29): f dist e = !

Consider the steady state heat transfer problem of a rod of length, L, constant conductivity, a, prescribed temperature u=0 at x = 0 and L, and constant source term f(x)=-Q over the left half of the rod. x L/2 L f = -Q Temperature u = 0 Temperature u = 0 Calculate the temperature and flux results for this problem via finite elements, using two equal- length 2-node linear elements (for convenience, number your 3 mesh nodes and 2 elements left to right). Compare your finite element solution with the exact solution of the problem (suggestion: plot the exact and finite element distributions for the temperature and the flux)
