CHAP 6 Finite Elements for Plane Solids 331 18. A quadrilateral element in the figure is mapped into the parent element. (a) A point P has a coordinate ( x, y ) = (½, y ) in the physical element and ( s, t ) = (−½, t ) in the parent element. Find y and t coordinates of the point using isoparametric mapping. (b) Calculate the Jacobian matrix at the center of the element. (c) Is the mapping valid? Explain your answer. Solution: (a) Using isoparametric interpolation of point P , 1 1 1 2 4 4 11 44 (1 )(1 ) 1 ) 1 ) 1 ) 1 s t s t y s t s t     (1) Substitute s = 1/2 in the first equation 1 3 1 1 1 4 2 4 2 2 ) ) tt The above equation can be solved for t = 0.
