44 - Processing of Finite Element Stiffness Equation: Plane strain case
Lee, Jae Young
The function covers interactive simulation of assembling stiffness matrices and force vectors into the system equations, comparison of different assembly methods, and node and element numbering for the computational efficiency. Drag-and-drop assembly of element stiffness matrix is graphically simulated for intuitive understanding of the process. This demo is a continuation of the demo about element stiffness matrix of plane strain model in the file named PlaneElem.mp4.
