APPENDIX 10A

A NUMERICAL EXAMPLE FOR A 10-NODE STIFFNESS MATRIX

10A.1 INTRODUCTION

The procedure for formulating the stiffness matrix for 10-node elements developed in the main text is demonstrated in this Appendix with a numerical example. This presentation couples the equations presented in the main body of Chapter 10 for computing the stiffness matrix with the output of the Matlab programs contained in Appendix 10B that perform the requisite computations.

The objectives of these two Appendices are threefold. Their prime goal is to provide a detailed presentation of the element formulation procedure and to demonstrate its straightforward nature. The second objective is to provide detailed results that will allow the computer implementation ...
