3 What is the Finite Element Analysis (FEA)? uniform loading Fixed boundary Problem: Obtain the stresses/strains in the plate Node Element Finite element model Description: - FEA cuts a structure into several elements - Then reconnects elements at ‘nodes’

5 K [ ] u { } = F { } Fundamental Concepts (1/2) Many engineering phenomena can be expressed by ‘governing equations’ and ‘boundary conditions’ u { } = K [ ] 1 F { } algebraic equation Unknown displacement value

6 K [ ] u { } = F { } u { } = K [ ] 1 F { } Fundamental Concepts (2/2) Solve the algebraic equations, obtaining unknown variable at nodes Using the displacement values from the earlier step, strains and stresses are calculated

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
