FINITE ELEMENT ANALYSIS
Subject Code : MTME-102
M.Code : 74716
Time : 3 Hrs. Max. Marks : 100

INSTRUCTIONS TO CANDIDATES :
1. Attempt any FIVE questions in all.
2. Each question carries TWENTY marks.

1. Discuss the general procedure for finite element analysis of physical problems. How does
FEA differ from exact solutions approach for solving boundary value problems in
engineering?
2. Derive relation for expressing strain energy as product of strain energy density and total
volume of deformed material for a fixed bar element subjected to load. Using the work-
strain energy relation, obtain the governing equations for the bar element using
Castigliano?s theorem.
3. A structure consisting of two bars is shown in Fig. 1. An axial load P = 200 kN is applied
as shown. Determine the (a) element stiffness matrix (b) global stiffness matrix (c) global
load vector (d) stress in each bar and (e) reaction forces.

4. Analyze a simply supported beam subjected to a uniformly distributed load throughout
using Rayleigh Ritz method. Adopt one-parameter trigonometric function. Evaluate the
maximum deflection and bending moment and compare with the exact solution.
