Finite Element Analysis Basics

General Element Information
There are 6 major types of elements; truss, beam, 2-D, axisymmetric, shell and 3-D. In
this course we will be using all but the axisymmetric and shell elements. Table 4.1 shows
the major charact
Introduction
In this lab experiment we will be looking at how a rolling flywheel can be used to gather
the mass moment of inertia of that disk. We will be comparing the experimental data that
we obtained with the theoretical value obtained through measure
Introduction
In this lab experiment we will be investigating the relationship between the belt tensions
and the angle of lap for a given belt. We will then compare the driving torque for a given
angle of lap using a flap leather belt, a badly fitted V bel
Introduction
In this lab experiment we will be looking at the centrifugal force and how it acts on a
body relative to rotational speed and radius of the apparatus. We will be comparing
theoretical values with experimental values obtained. Theoretical valu
Introduction
In this lab experiment, we used Sir Isaac Newtons Second Law to measure the force of
gravity on an object. Ideally, it would be simpler to just drop an object and calculate the
Earths gravitational force on that object. However, it is not too
Introduction
In this lab experiment we will be looking at what happens when two objects collide. As
long as there are two objects and no external forces, the following equation can be used
to solve for the combined momentum.
Where p is the combined moment
Introduction
The laws of motion are a pretty complicated principle. It took mankind 4000 years of
civilization and the genius of Sir Isaac Newton to figure out these basic principles of
motion. In this experiment, we took a look at Sir Isaac Newtons secon
