## More Open Source FEA Code Links

The book Nonlinear Finite Element Analysis of Solids and Structures 2nd Edition has an associated python code package called pyFEM, but a search for this code finds several others with the same or similar names: The pyFEM sites associated with the … Continue reading

## Open Source FEA Code Links

There have been many posts here based on code from the book Programming The Finite Element Method, with the Fortran code either translated to VBA, or with VBA links to compiled Fortran Code. I recently discovered: The “Programming the Finite … Continue reading

## Deflections and Moments in Rectangular Plates

Following a question here I have compared tabulated coefficients for deflections and bending moments in a rectangular plate with results of a Strand7 analysis using 8 noded plate/shell elements. The results are summarised below, and in a spreadsheet which also … Continue reading

## Column buckling under multiple loads

Following another buckling discussion at Eng-tips I have modified my Frame4-buckle spreadsheet to allow input of multiple axial loads at any point along the column, along with any number of sections with different section properties. Background on the method used … Continue reading
