Finite Element (FE) assignment 4
1.

For the structure shown in Figure below, each element has a cross sectional area, A =
0.001 m2, and modules of elasticity, E = 109 Pa. The structure is discretized into five
elements. The 10 kN force is parallel to element (e) and is applied as shown in Figure
below. Element (a) is 4 m long, element (d) is 3 m long, and element (e) is 2.4 m long.

1.
