Finite Element Method course projects


The project objective was to develop two flexible MATLAB code for analyzing 3D truss structures and 2D cantilever beams. The number of nodes and elements (mesh size), material properties and element type should be defined by the end-user as an input parameter and output results included the stiffness matrix, internal force, displacements, stress and strain for each element or node. The code also generates a report excel file for each problem. Lastly, results from MATLAB code were verified by other FEM analysis packages. You can download project files and codes above. Use MATLAB 2015 to run codes without any possible error due to changes in some MATLAB syntax .
