Analyzing a 2D trass using FEM

Assignment of "machanics of materials II". 2001 Winter


A MATLAB program is written in which users can define a 2D truss in 3way: keyboard, Input file, and mouse.

Entering path, the input file structure is shown.

If data is chosen to be entered in command prompt, user can visually watch node locations. Joints are, also, visible during joint creation step.

Mechanical properties of each element can be defined separately.

Stress and Strain in all elements are shown in a table, and the deformed shape of the structure is compared visually to the original one
