Chapter 6 - Plane Stress/Plane Strain Stiffness Equations - Part 1

Plane Stress and Plane Strain Equations


In Chapters 2 through 5, we considered only line elements.
Line elements are connected only at common nodes, forming
framed or articulated structures such as trusses, frames, and
grids.
Line elements have geometric properties such as crosssectional area and moment of inertia associated with their
cross sections.

Plane Stress and Plane Strain Equations


However, only one local coordinate along the length of the
element is required to describe a position along the element
(hence, they are called line elements).
Nodal compatibility is then enforced during the formulation of
the nodal equilibrium equations for a line element.
This chapter considers the two-dimensional finite element.

Plane Stress and Plane Strain Equations


Two-dimensional (planar) elements are thin-plate elements
such that two coordinates define a position on the element
surface.
The elements are connected at common nodes and/or along
common edges to form continuous structures.

Plane Stress and Plane Strain Equations


Nodal compatibility is then enforced during the formulation of
the nodal equilibrium equations for two-dimensional
elements.
If proper displacement functions are chosen, compatibility
along common edges is also obtained.

Plane Stress and Plane Strain Equations


We begin this chapter with the development of the stiffness
matrix for a basic two-dimensional or plane finite element,
called the constant-strain triangular element.
The constant-strain triangle (CST) stiffness matrix derivation is
the simplest among the available two-dimensional elements.
We will derive the CST stiffness matrix by using the principle
of minimum potential energy because the energy formulation
is the most feasible for the development of the equations for
both two- and three-dimensional finite elements.

Plane Stress and Plane Strain Equations


Formulation of the Plane Triangular Element Equations
We will now follow the steps described in Chapter 1 to formulate
the governing equations for a plane stress/plane strain
triangular element.
First, we will describe the concepts of plane stress and plane
strain.
Then we will provide a brief description of the steps and basic
equations pertaining to a plane triangular element.

Plane Stress and Plane Strain Equations


Formulation of the Plane Triangular Element Equations
Plane Stress
Plane stress is defined to be a state of stress in which the
normal stress and the shear stresses directed
perpendicular to the plane are assumed to be zero.
That is, the normal stress z and the shear stresses xz and yz
are assumed to be zero.
Generally, members that are thin (those with a small z
dimension compared to the in-plane x and y dimensions) and
whose loads act only in the x-y plane can be considered to be
under plane stress.

Plane Stress and Plane Strain Equations


Formulation of the Plane Triangular Element Equations
Plane Strain
Plane strain is defined to be a state of strain in which the
strain normal to the x-y plane z and the shear strains xz
and yz are assumed to be zero.
The assumptions of plane strain are realistic for long bodies
(say, in the z direction) with constant cross-sectional area
subjected to loads that act only in the x and/or y directions and
do not vary in the z direction.

The reason that the element must be able to translate as a rigid

Hence these elements must be free
to translate and rotate without

For the CS triangle, a distributed load on the element edge can


be treated as concentrated loads acting at the nodes
associated with the loaded edge.
However, for higher-order elements, like the linear strain triangle
(discussed in Chapter 8), load replacement should be made
by using the principle of minimum potential energy.
For higher-order elements, load replacement by potential
energy is not equivalent to the apparent statically equivalent
one.
