Release Date: 2008-11-06
Genre: Technology & Engineering

This book intend to supply readers with some MATLAB codes for ?nite element analysis of solids and structures. After a short introduction to MATLAB, the book illustrates the ?nite element implementation of some problems by simple scripts and functions. The following problems are discussed: • Discrete systems, such as springs and bars • Beams and frames in bending in 2D and 3D • Plane stress problems • Plates in bending • Free vibration of Timoshenko beams and Mindlin plates, including laminated composites • Buckling of Timoshenko beams and Mindlin plates The book does not intends to give a deep insight into the ?nite element details, just the basic equations so that the user can modify the codes. The book was prepared for undergraduate science and engineering students, although it may be useful for graduate students. TheMATLABcodesofthisbookareincludedinthedisk.Readersarewelcomed to use them freely. The author does not guarantee that the codes are error-free, although a major e?ort was taken to verify all of them. Users should use MATLAB 7.0 or greater when running these codes.

The Finite Element Method

Author: Darrell W. Pepper
Publisher: CRC Press
ISBN: 9781315395081
Release Date: 2017-04-11
Genre: Science

This self-explanatory guide introduces the basic fundamentals of the Finite Element Method in a clear manner using comprehensive examples. Beginning with the concept of one-dimensional heat transfer, the first chapters include one-dimensional problems that can be solved by inspection. The book progresses through more detailed two-dimensional elements to three-dimensional elements, including discussions on various applications, and ending with introductory chapters on the boundary element and meshless methods, where more input data must be provided to solve problems. Emphasis is placed on the development of the discrete set of algebraic equations. The example problems and exercises in each chapter explain the procedure for defining and organizing the required initial and boundary condition data for a specific problem, and computer code listings in MATLAB and MAPLE are included for setting up the examples within the text, including COMSOL files. Widely used as an introductory Finite Element Method text since 1992 and used in past ASME short courses and AIAA home study courses, this text is intended for undergraduate and graduate students taking Finite Element Methodology courses, engineers working in the industry that need to become familiar with the FEM, and engineers working in the field of heat transfer. It can also be used for distance education courses that can be conducted on the web. Highlights of the new edition include: - Inclusion of MATLAB, MAPLE code listings, along with several COMSOL files, for the example problems within the text. Power point presentations per chapter and a solution manual are also available from the web. - Additional introductory chapters on the boundary element method and the meshless method. - Revised and updated content. -Simple and easy to follow guidelines for understanding and applying the Finite Element Method.

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

Stress Strain and Structural Dynamics

Author: Bingen Yang
Publisher: Elsevier
ISBN: 9780080541877
Release Date: 2005-04-07
Genre: Technology & Engineering

Stress, Strain, and Structural Dynamics is a comprehensive and definitive reference to statics and dynamics of solids and structures, including mechanics of materials, structural mechanics, elasticity, rigid-body dynamics, vibrations, structural dynamics, and structural controls. This text integrates the development of fundamental theories, formulas and mathematical models with user-friendly interactive computer programs, written in the powerful and popular MATLAB. This unique merger of technical referencing and interactive computing allows instant solution of a variety of engineering problems, and in-depth exploration of the physics of deformation, stress and motion by analysis, simulation, graphics, and animation. This book is ideal for both professionals and students dealing with aerospace, mechanical, and civil engineering, as well as naval architecture, biomechanics, robotics, and mechtronics. For engineers and specialists, the book is a valuable resource and handy design tool in research and development. For engineering students at both undergraduate and graduate levels, the book serves as a useful study guide and powerful learning aid in many courses. And for instructors, the book offers an easy and efficient approach to curriculum development and teaching innovation. Combines knowledge of solid mechanics--including both statics and dynamics, with relevant mathematical physics and offers a viable solution scheme. Will help the reader better integrate and understand the physical principles of classical mechanics, the applied mathematics of solid mechanics, and computer methods. The Matlab programs will allow professional engineers to develop a wider range of complex engineering analytical problems, using closed-solution methods to test against numerical and other open-ended methods. Allows for solution of higher order problems at earlier engineering level than traditional textbook approaches.
