Example text

As the friction force always acts to oppose motion, the work done by friction forces is always negative and results in energy loss. This loss shows itself physically as generated heat. 37, is reversed, and therefore recovered, if the force is released. 37. 53) As we show in the following examples and applications to solid mechanics in Chapter 9, the strain energy term Ue is a quadratic function of system displacements and the work term W is a linear function of displacements. Rigorously, the minimization of total potential energy is a problem in the calculus of variations [5].

30) L which shows that the spar element is a constant strain element. This is in accord with strength of materials theory: The element has constant cross-sectional area and is subjected to constant forces at the end points, so the strain does not vary along the length. 32 is now used to relate the applied nodal forces f 1 and f 2 to the nodal displacements u 1 and u 2 . 34) L Hutton: Fundamentals of Finite Element Analysis 2. 36) As is the case with the linear spring, we observe that the element stiffness matrix for the bar element is symmetric, singular, and of order 2 × 2 in correspondence with two nodal displacements or degrees of freedom.

2 NODAL EQUILIBRIUM EQUATIONS To illustrate the required conversion of element properties to a global coordinate system, we consider the one-dimensional bar element as a structural member of a two-dimensional truss. Via this relatively simple example, the assembly procedure of essentially any finite element problem formulation is illustrated. We choose the element type (in this case we have only one selection, the bar element); specify the geometry of the problem (element connectivity); formulate the algebraic equations governing the problem (in this case, static equilibrium); specify the boundary conditions (known displacements and applied external forces); solve the system of equations for the global displacements; and back-substitute displacement values to obtain secondary variables, including strain, stress, and reaction forces at constrained locations (boundary conditions).
