Let the global degrees of freedom (and associated nodal forces) be numbered as indicated. 3L 3 :l- r l ( l T Z ---:'> + :___’ #55 7;, .1, / (a) Consider the three ‘typical’ elements shown below, and give the stiffness matrix L, for each of these elements. 4 4‘. z ‘t 3 4—3 5 I B93 5’- l "" l 2. ‘7’ (b) With reference to these three elements, state the connectivity vector for each of the five bars. (0) Recall that the global system of equations can be partitioned such that K f f U f = P; — Kchc and Pc = chUf + KCCUC. Here P; (is a vector which) con- tains the applied forces and U ,- contains corresponding displacements (viz. the “free degrees of freedom”), while UC contains prescribed displacements and PC contains associated forces (viz. the reactions). For the problem under consid~ eration: H (1) State explicitly the vectors U f, UC, P f and PC. 13 (ii) Follow an ‘element-by-element’ assembly process to construct K f f. "’7 Problem 2: Consider a solid circular bar subjected to a uniformly distributed torque to as indicated in the figure. The bar is linearly elastic with shear modulus G and to polar moment of the area J. / —:v ~—:9 «9 —-» / Nfi: Earth/wok ingm Equilibrium of the bar dictates that x T: 63" 3% dfib d—i(GJd—m)+t =0 , O<x<L in which ¢(:I:) is the angle of twist. The boundary conditions for the problem under consideration are that 95(0) = 0 and d¢/dx(L) = 0. Establish a symmetric weak-form statement of the boundary value problem. Make sure that you explicitly state the essential and natural boundary conditions. Problem 3: An axial bar is connected to rigid supports by means of Springs at its ends as shown. The bar has length L and axial rigidity AE, and the springs have stiffness P6 = AE/(4L). A concentrated force Po acts at the center of the bar as indicated. WSW hams—Vs! 4 j A symmetric weak-form statement of the problem is as follows.

To do so, take the trial field as uN(:t) = 051 + a2(-E)2 in which {1511,le2} are constants to be determined. L ._—- 0—» a %_ a J." ;/' 11. Problem 4: Consider again the boundary value problem introduced in Problem 3. We wish to obtain an approximate solution by means of the Finite Element Method. Consider two (linear) elements of equal length, and construct the system of equations K U = P.
