Why is FEA needed?

• To reduce the amount of prototype testing


Computer simulation allows multiple “what-if” scenarios to be
tested quickly and effectively.

• To simulate designs that are not suitable for prototype testing


Example: Surgical implants, such as an artificial knee

• The bottom line:


Cost savings
Time savings… reduce time to market!
Create more reliable, better-quality designs

DEFINITION “FEM”
A Finite Element is a region in space in which a function φ is interpolated from nodal
values of φ on the boundary of the region in such a way that inter element continuity of φ tends
to be maintained in the assemblage.

……………….R. D. Cook

The Structure is idealized by just subdividing the original object into an assembly of
discrete elements such that the resulting structure will simulate the original one.

……...……V. Ramamurti

Finite Element Method is a method of approximation to continuum problems such that


a) The continuum is divided in to finite number of parts (elements), the behavior of which is
specified by finite number of parameters and
b) The solution of the complete system as an assembly of its elements follows precisely the
same rules as those applicable to standard discrete problems.

BASIC FEA
What is Finite Element Analysis
A(FEA)?
computer aided, numerical analysis technique for obtaining approximate solutions to
a wide variety of engineering problems.

Solves for the fundamental differential and/or integral equations that predict the
response of physical systems to external effects.

Four basic steps of FEA

1. Discretization of the continuum (generate nodes and elements)

2. Formulation of the element stiffness matrix

3. Assemble element stiffness matrices into a global stiffness matrix

4. Solve the resulting system of equations

STEPS IN FEA PROCESS
Part is first divided into smaller, simpler regions called elements
This process is known as “mesh generation.”

Looks similar to a jigsaw puzzle

Automatically introduces approximation to the geometry

Field variables in each element are approximated by functions


Field variable are
- Displacement for a Structural analysis
- Temperature for a Thermal analysis
Functions are usually polynomials (often called interpolation functions)
Coefficients of these functions are the unknowns at each connection point
These are a function of the nodal coordinate location
Within an element and on it’s boundaries, the displacements are continuous

SEA - POWERTRAIN TEAM S.Vijay 21


STEPS IN FEA PROCESS
Governing equations are transformed into algebraic equations for each element.
 Represents approximate governing equations to the region

 Relates displacements at the nodes to external forces

 Element stiffness matrix developed using shape functions

 Global stiffness matrix assembled from element matrices

Structural analysis involve the solution of equations of equilibrium for each element at nodes.

Primary solution yields the nodal field variables (displacement, temperature)

Gradients of field variables are secondary quantities usually involving derivatives of primary
variables

Meshing methods
When choosing elements and creating meshes for FEA problems users must make
sure that
•Chosen mesh size and density are optimal for the problem (to save
computational time)
•Chosen element types are appropriate for the analysis type performed (for
accuracy)
•Chosen elements and meshes can represent force distributions properly
•Make use of symmetry

Meshing consideration
Discontinuity
Nodes must always be placed at locations where geometry, loads, or boundary
conditions change abruptly (discontinuities)

Element Size
Choose element types that are appropriate for the loading and stress conditions of the
problem

Element Type
Make sure that the elements chosen capture all possible significant stresses that may
result from the given loading, geometry, and boundary conditions

SEA - POWERTRAIN TEAM S.Vijay 35


Mesh quality
Aspect ratio
For a good mesh all elements must have a low aspect
Ratio Specifically b/h < 2-4

where b and h are the longest and the shortest sides of an element

Element Shape
Angles between element sides must not approach 0°or 180°

Mesh refinement
Finer meshing must be used in regions of expected high stress gradients
(usually occur at discontinuities)

Linear Static Analysis
It is a simple finite element analysis that is used to simulate the behavior of any
physical system. The stress is assumed to be directly proportional to strain and the
structure deformations are proportional to the loads. It is based on first principles.

Assumptions of Linear Static Analysis


•All deformations and strains are small
•Structural deformations are proportional to the loads applied
•All materials behave in a linear elastic fashion
•Loads are all static
•No boundary condition varies with time or application of load

Results obtained

Non-linear Analysis
When stress is not proportional to the strain

Material nonlinearity Material nonlinearity can be observed in structures undergoing


nonlinear elasticity, plasticity, viscoelasticity,creep or other inelastic effects.

Geometric nonlinearity This is where there is a nonlinear strain-displacement relationship.


Geometric nonlinearity maybe due to large strains (membrane analyses or metal forming) or
small strains but with large displacements and/or rotations (fishing rod).

Displacement boundary condition nonlinearities


This is where the displacement boundary conditions depend on the deformation of the
structure

Dynamic Analysis
This analysis is used to study the behavior of structures subjected to repetitive motion that can
be measured and observed. Vibration analysis is used to ensure that the system is not subject to
a dangerous resonant condition during the range of operation.

Modal analysis:
It is used to find the mode shape and natural frequency of structures. Modal analyses are
important in machines where there is likely to be cyclic out of balance forces, such as in rotating
machinery and fluid flow applications.

Frequency response analysis


It is a response analysis technique, which is used to get the amplitude of response close to the
resonant zone when the natural frequency of the system/assembly falls within the excitation
frequency zone. It is used when the structure is subjected to steady-state harmonic excitations
(frequency).

Frequency response is the measure of any system's response at the output to a signal of varying
frequency (but constant amplitude) at its input

SEA - POWERTRAIN TEAM S.Vijay 43


FREE VIBRATION
Define the following: y = Displacement along theY axis
y = Velocity along theY axis
y = Acceleration along theY axis
Sum all the forces on mass M: Inertia force
Mε Ω2 sin( Ω t ) − C y − K y = M y
Applied force Damping force Stiffness force
Assume e = 0, a perfectly balanced rotor so there is no force:
M y + C y + K y =0
Assume that the displacement y of the system varies sinusoidally with time
and substitute the assumed motion back into the equation for the balanced rotor:
y = A eλ t
(Mλ 2
+ C λ + K ) A eλ t = 0
This is a so-called “eigenvalue” (characteristic value) problem, which is
solved by finding values for l such that A ≠ 0.
We now define wn as the natural frequency of the structure, which is:

Fatigue Analysis
A fatigue life analysis utilizes the output from static analysis. In addition to the results
from the static run, The S-N curve of the material used in the structure and the load
history data are employed during the analysis. Engineers can get a very clear picture of
where and when fatigue cracks are most likely to occur under normal operation. The
accuracy of the fatigue life calculation is highly dependant on the use of the proper S-N
curves at various parts of the structure and the quality of the load history data used to
drive the analysis.

Von Mises Stress

Von Mises stress is a non-directional stress quantity that combines all stress directions and
states into one “average” value. By definition, this value is always positive and does not
specify whether the stress is tensile or compressive in nature. However, when working with
ductile metals such as mild steel, Von Mises stress is the best measure for predicting failure due
to yielding. The uniaxial yield strength of a material is compared to the calculated Von Mises
stress to determine whether ductile failure is a concern. Note that gross yielding will probably
not occur in the case of a stress concentration, but rather the stresses will redistribute quickly
after some minor local yielding. Von Mises stress is represented by the following equation.

Max, Min, Mid Principal Stress
The idea of principal stresses is explored fully in mechanics texts, but it can be summarized as
the three stresses normal to three mutually orthogonal planes within a particle that is oriented in
a manner such that shear stress is zero. At that particle’s orientation, these three principal
stresses represent the most positive normal stress (σ1 - max principal), the least positive normal
stress (σ3 - min principal), and an intermediate stress (σ2 - mid principal). Typically, positive
stress is related to tension and negative stress is related to compression.
Principal stresses are primarily used for fatigue life calculations. Fatigue life calculations are
based on stress ranges (maximum minus minimum). Fatigue cracks will propagate in a direction
perpendicular to the maximum principal stress direction.

Linear Structural Analysis: It is a simple finite element analysis that is used to
simulate the behavior of any physical system. The stress is assumed to be
directly proportional to strain and the structure deformations are proportional to
the loads. It is based on first principles.

Non-Linear Structural Analysis: It is a type of finite element analysis that


predicts real behavior of the system where the applied load is not proportional
to the deformations. A stress analysis problem is linear only if all conditions of
proportionality hold. If any one of them is violated, then it is a non-linear
problem

Material non-linearity: The non-linearity arising from the nature of material is


called Material Non-linearity.

Geometric non-linearity: The non-linear behavior that exhibits from a non-linear


load-deflection relationship is called geometric non-linearity. Large deflections
and rotations of structures come under this type.
Boundary non-linearity (Contact problems): This type of non-linearity arises
from change in the boundary conditions such as opening and closing of gaps,
physical contacts and follower force.

natural frequency of the system/assembly falls within the excitation frequency
zone. It is used when the structure is subjected to steady-state harmonic
excitations (frequency).

Dynamic analysis: Many structures are subject to time varying loads such as
impulse, blast, impact & seismic loadings. Transient dynamic analysis
determines the time-response history of a structure subjected to a forced
displacement function.

Inertia relief analysis: Inertia relief is a type of static analysis that predicts the
steady state response of a structure that is freely accelerating due to constant
applied loads. This type of analysis is useful to the structural designer since the
stress in an accelerating structure may be greater than the stress in the
corresponding restrained structure even when the applied loads are the same.

Torsional Vibration analysis: This analysis is used to study the vibration


characteristics of structures subjected to torque and torsion related loads.
Impact analysis: This kind of analysis performed to predict the behavior of
structures subjected to blast or burst loads.
