THE UNIVERSITY OF NEW SOUTH WALES SCHOOL OF CIVIL AND ENVIRONMENTAL ENGINEERING CVEN 4304: STRUCTURAL ANALYSIS AND FINITE ELEMENTS CVEN9820 COMPUTATIONAL STRUCTURAL MECHANICS Tutorial Set 5: Isoparametric Element Determine the 3 by 3 stiffness matrix if nodes of the element in figure are uniformly spaced. Let A and E be constant and perform integrations explicitly. Figure 1 Omit the internal node in Figure 1, so that the element becomes a bar with end nodes only. Using natural coordinates , derive the 2 by 2 stiffness matrix of a uniform element. In Figure 1, let 4 / 2 3 L x x and 4 / 3 1 2 L x x . If only node 3 has axial displacement ( 0 2 1 u u , 0 3 u ), what is the strain x at each node. Evaluate [J] and J for each of the four elements shown. Also determine the ratio of element area to the area of a square two units on a side. How is this ratio related to J, and why? Subscribe to view the full document. Unformatted text preview: area to the area of a square two units on a side. How is this ratio related to J, and why? Figure 2 Repeat Question 1, but use two-point Gauss quadrature rather than explicit integration. A quadrilateral element is shown in the figure with the coordinates in millimeters. Let E =210 GPa and v =0.25 and assume plane stress condition. Use a spreadsheet (for example, MS Excel), MATLAB, MAPLE or MATHEMATICA 1. To evaluate the element stiffness matrix using 1-by-1 Gaussian quadrature. 2. To evaluate the element stiffness matrix using 2-by-2 Gaussian quadrature. 3. To determine the stresses at the local coordinates (0,0) when the displacements are given as u 1 =0, v 1 =0; u 2 =0.01mm, v 2 =0.005mm; u 3 =0.015mm, v 3 =0.02mm; u 4 =0, v 4 =0. Figure 3...

What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
