Assemble Stiffness Matrices Globally

The assemble of stiffness matrices can be expressed as simple as

𝐾 = 𝑘1 + 𝑘 2 + 𝑘 3 + ⋯ + 𝑘 𝑛

However this is not a direct additional operation but SELECTIVE

The order of [K} equals to


the number of nodes multiply by the number of degrees of freedom each node

Lecture Module 3 BDA31003 8


Example Problem 3-2
Assemble the local/individual stiffness matrix in a global structural stiffness matrix [K]

Arrange the structural stiffness matrix into a complete static matrix equation
[K]{u} = {f}

Lecture Module 3 BDA31003 20
Constraints

This end is fixed This end will move


not allowed to move at all at certain distance only,
no more than that

In engineering, these are called CONSTRAINTS

In mathematics, some say BOUNDARY CONDITIONS

The nodes MUST follow the constraints !

After constraints : 1 e1 2 e2 3 e3 4

Lecture Module 3 BDA31003 25


Handling constraints
penalty method

The idea in penalty method:

● The correct solutions at the constrained nodes are obtained


by introducing high value at the dof of the nodes so this will
ignore other value corresponding to the constraints.

●There is no elimination process and solving the equations can


be started immediately. This will be easier to program and
faster solution

𝐾11 + 𝐶 𝑢1 + 𝐾12 𝑢2 + 𝐾13 𝑢3 + 𝐾14 𝑢4 = 𝐹1 + β1 𝐶

𝐾41 𝑢1 + 𝐾42 𝑢2 + 𝐾43 𝑢3 + 𝐾44 + 𝐶 𝑢4 = 𝐹4 + β4 𝐶

Since C is a huge value compared to other items the equations can be written

𝐶 𝑢1 ≈ β1 𝐶 𝑢1 ≈ β1

(d) Apply Direct Elimination Method)

Before constraint:
θ1 θ2 θ3 θ4 {θ} {T}
1472.8125 -1472.8125 0 0 θ1 θ1 -80
-1472.8125 3436.5625 -1963.75 0 θ2 x θ2 = 20
0 -1963.75 7855 -5891.25 θ3 θ3 -30
0 0 -5891.25 5891.25 θ4 θ4 0

After constraint : θ4=0
