Unformatted text preview: William Klug MAE M168/CEE M135C Introduction to Finite Element Methods Lecture 7c Galerkin for Bernoulli-Euler and and Timoshenko Beam problems William Klug Bernoulli-Euler Theory: Kinematics Plane sections remain plane and normal to the neutral axis (NA) Cross-section Rotation: Axial Displacement: Axial Strain: Curvature of the NA: William Klug Bernoulli-Euler Theory: Resultants Bending moment Note: If we assume Hookes law and neglect stresses and strains in the plane of the cross-section: (Moment of Inertia) William Klug Bernoulli-Euler Theory: Virtual Work Admissibility Conditions: 1) Real and virtual curvatures must be bounded, i.e., continuous slope with no kinks 2) Must satisfy essential boundary conditions (EBC): Displacement or slope may be specified on boundary Hjelmstad William Klug FEM approximation Galerkin/Rayleigh-Ritz idea: Approximate unknown field (displacement) by piecewise polynomial interpolation over each element That is, construct finite-dimensional subspace of...
