FEA Basics Theory Notes | Matrix Analysis of Trusses Solved examples

As Finite Element Analysis has continue to play a big role in Engineering Industry.

It is very essential for all engineers in the product development team to know about FEM.

FEA Basics Theory

In this section, you will get an opportunity to learn:

FEA Introduction

Stages involved in FEA process - Pre-processing,Analysis and Post-processing

What is stiffness matrix

How to build stiffness matrix for a given problem

Local and Global stiffness matrix

Find stress and displacement using FEA model.

FEA example problems
