Unformatted text preview: (c) using Gaussian quadrature over intervals of variable size (you tell me the intervals and the order of the Gaussian quadrature youve used) Keep track of the number of times you evaluate the integrand in parts (b) and (c). Compare the efficiency of the method of part (c) with that of part (b) by comparing the number of evaluations of the integrand required to achieve the same level of accuracy. (3) In Exercise 15, we examined the work-equivalent conversion of a uniform pressure distribution over an irregularly-shaped Q8 element. Suppose now that the load distribution over the element face is described by: 2 2 ) , ( y x y x p + = Find the work-equivalent loads at the corner and midside nodes of the irregular element given in Exercise 15 for this load distribution....
