SPRING AND BAR ELEMENTS
The primary characteristics of a finite element are embodied in the element stiffness matrix.
For a structural finite element, the stiffness matrix contains the geometric and material
Structures composed of straight elastic members subjected to axial forces only are defined as
truss structures. Satisfaction of this restriction requires that all members of the truss be bar
elements and that the
The mathematics required for the study of finite element analysis can vary from elementary
to sophisticated. Most concepts can be mastered with a reasonable knowledge of vector
analysis, matrix analysis,
The finite element method (FEM), sometimes referred to as finite element analysis (FEA), is
a computational technique used to obtain approximate solutions of boundary value problems

A broad definition of composite is: Two or more chemically distinct
materials which when combined have improved properties over
the individual materials. Composites could be natural or sy
