Introduction to Finite Element Analysis Using MATLAB and Abaqus

Author: Amar Khennane
Publisher: CRC Press
ISBN: 1466580208
Release Date: 2013-06-10
Genre: Technology & Engineering

There are some books that target the theory of the finite element, while others focus on the programming side of things. Introduction to Finite Element Analysis Using MATLAB® and Abaqus accomplishes both. This book teaches the first principles of the finite element method. It presents the theory of the finite element method while maintaining a balance between its mathematical formulation, programming implementation, and application using commercial software. The computer implementation is carried out using MATLAB, while the practical applications are carried out in both MATLAB and Abaqus. MATLAB is a high-level language specially designed for dealing with matrices, making it particularly suited for programming the finite element method, while Abaqus is a suite of commercial finite element software. Includes more than 100 tables, photographs, and figures Provides MATLAB codes to generate contour plots for sample results Introduction to Finite Element Analysis Using MATLAB and Abaqus introduces and explains theory in each chapter, and provides corresponding examples. It offers introductory notes and provides matrix structural analysis for trusses, beams, and frames. The book examines the theories of stress and strain and the relationships between them. The author then covers weighted residual methods and finite element approximation and numerical integration. He presents the finite element formulation for plane stress/strain problems, introduces axisymmetric problems, and highlights the theory of plates. The text supplies step-by-step procedures for solving problems with Abaqus interactive and keyword editions. The described procedures are implemented as MATLAB codes and Abaqus files can be found on the CRC Press website.

Introduction to Nonlinear Finite Element Analysis

Author: Nam-Ho Kim
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
ISBN: 9781441917461
Release Date: 2014-11-21
Genre: Technology & Engineering

This book introduces the key concepts of nonlinear finite element analysis procedures. The book explains the fundamental theories of the field and provides instructions on how to apply the concepts to solving practical engineering problems. Instead of covering many nonlinear problems, the book focuses on three representative problems: nonlinear elasticity, elastoplasticity, and contact problems. The book is written independent of any particular software, but tutorials and examples using four commercial programs are included as appendices: ANSYS, NASTRAN, ABAQUS, and MATLAB. In particular, the MATLAB program includes all source codes so that students can develop their own material models, or different algorithms.

Expanded to include a broader range of problems than the bestselling first edition, Finite Element Method Using MATLAB: Second Edition presents finite element approximation concepts, formulation, and programming in a format that effectively streamlines the learning process. It is written from a general engineering and mathematical perspective rather than that of a solid/structural mechanics basis. What's new in the Second Edition? Each chapter in the Second Edition now includes an overview that outlines the contents and purpose of each chapter. The authors have also added a new chapter of special topics in applications, including cracks, semi-infinite and infinite domains, buckling, and thermal stress. They discuss three different linearization techniques to solve nonlinear differential equations. Also included are new sections on shell formulations and MATLAB programs. These enhancements increase the book's already significant value both as a self-study text and a reference for practicing engineers and scientists.

XFEM The Extended Finite Element Method

Author: Stéphane Bordas
Publisher: Wiley
ISBN: 0470667087
Release Date: 2016-04-04
Genre: Technology & Engineering

First book to offer a guide to the foundations of the XFEM and its implementation A revolution similar to that initiated by the FEM is taking place through the XFEM, which is already implemented in leading commercial packages (ABAQUS, ANSYS, etc.) that are taught at undergraduate and post-graduate levels and to industrial end-users. XFEM provides a detailed overview of the basics around the newly introduced extended finite element method for applications in solving moving boundary problems. XFEM is introduced naturally as an extension of FEM, through simple one dimensional examples which then allow the introduction of higher-dimensional problems. Throughout the book, each key concept is highlighted by the corresponding piece of MATLAB code which is provided via an accompanying web portal. Uniquely, this portal allows readers to obtain real-time feedback and help from an existing community of more than 130 researchers and industrialists. Demystifies the theory behind XFEM and makes it accessible to all with previous knowledge of the FEM Provides a simple introduction to XFEM but also provides a range of tools which the reader can build upon to take on a large breadth of more complex problems. Presents each key theoretical concept in parallel with its implementational aspects in the form of simple MATLAB routines provided along with the book via an interactive companion website and portal Provides a detailed account of applications of XFEM to fracture mechanics, including techniques absent from current literature

Fluid Structure Interaction

Author: Jean-Francois Sigrist
Publisher: John Wiley & Sons
ISBN: 9781119952275
Release Date: 2015-04-27
Genre: Science

Fluid-Structure Interaction: An Introduction to Finite Element Coupling fulfils the need for an introductive approach to the general concepts of Finite and Boundary Element Methods for FSI, from the mathematical formulation to the physical interpretation of numerical simulations. Based on the author’s experience in developing numerical codes for industrial applications in shipbuilding and in teaching FSI to both practicing engineers and within academia, it provides a comprehensive and self–contained guide that is geared toward both students and practitioners of mechanical engineering. Composed of six chapters, Fluid–Structure Interaction: An Introduction to Finite Element Coupling progresses logically from formulations and applications involving structure and fluid dynamics, fluid and structure interactions and opens to reduced order-modelling for vibro-acoustic coupling. The author describes simple yet fundamental illustrative examples in detail, using analytical and/or semi–analytical formulation & designed both to illustrate each numerical method and also to highlight a physical aspect of FSI. All proposed examples are simple enough to be computed by the reader using standard computational tools such as MATLAB, making the book a unique tool for self–learning and understanding the basics of the techniques for FSI, or can serve as verification and validation test cases of industrial FEM/BEM codes rendering the book valuable for code verification and validation purposes.

Development and Application of the Finite Element Method based on MatLab

Author: Herbert Baaser
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
ISBN: 3642131530
Release Date: 2010-05-10
Genre: Technology & Engineering

The intention of this booklet is a brief but general introduction into the treatment of the Finite Element Method (FEM). The FEM has become the leading method in computer–oriented mechanics, so that many scienti?c brancheshavegrownup besides overthelastdecades. Nevertheless,theFEM today is a question of economy. On the one hand its industrial application is forced to reduce product development costs and time, on the other hand a large number of commercial FEM codes and a still growing number of software for e?ective pre– and postprocessors are available in the meantime. Due to that, today it is a quite challenging task to operate with all these di?erent tools at the same time and to understand all handling and so- tion techniques developed over the last years. So, we want to help in getting a deeper insight into the main “interfaces” between the “customers of the FEM” and the codes itself by providing a totally open structured FE–code based on Matlab, which is a very powerful tool in operating with matrix based formulations. That idea and conditions forced us some years ago to initiateDAEdalon as a tool for general FE developments in research appli- tions. In spite of still existing high sophisticated – mostly commercial – FE codes, the success and the acceptance of such a structured tool justify that decision afterwards more and more.
