Unformatted text preview: te: these are total strains & not elastic strains Let us define [B] such that {e}6×1 = [B] 6×n { (e ) U }n×1 depends on elem. type Each eqn. in a is used to generate one row of [B] ∂u (i.e. 1st row, . . . etc.) ∂x Chapter 22 Page 10 K. Haghighi Element Matrices: [k(e )]& {f (e)} by minimizing the We obtain Potential Energy of the system or body (Π ). But where Π =Λ−W Λ = Strain energy (Lambda) W = Potential of forces acting on the body. Chapter 22 Page 11 K.
