1 Plane Problems: Constitutive Equations Constitutive equations for a linearly elastic and isotropic material in plane stress (i.e., σ z = τ xz = τ yz =0): where the last column has the initial (thermal) strains which are 0 , xy0 0 0 = = α ε ε T y x • Rewriting in a compact form and solving for the stress vector, where

4 Plane Problems: Displacement Field Interpolated Interpolating the displacement field, u(x,y) and v(x,y), in the plane finite element from nodal displacements, where entries of matrix N are the shape (interpolation) functions N i . From the previous two equations, where B is the strain-displacement matrix .
