43 - Computation of Element Stiffness Matrix: Plane strain case
Lee, Jae Young
This screen demo introduces an educational function of VisualFEA for teaching and learning the procedure of computing element stiffness matrices in finite element method. The step by step process of numerical integration is displayed using graphical images and numerical expressions. The purpose of the function is to study the computational details through inspecting the numerical data produced in the integration process.
