## 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

## Non-linear frame analysis; moment curvature and self-weight

The Python/Fortran/Excel frame analysis program (previous version here) now has several new features added to the 2D-solver routines: The beam bending behaviour may now be specified with moment-curvature tables, rather than the linear-plastic behaviour required in the previous version. Beam … Continue reading

## Non-linear Frame Analysis – Scipy solvers

The frame analysis spreadsheet presented in the previous post has been updated to use the solvers included in the Scipy package. There is now an option to use either the Cholesky solver, or an iterative sparse solver. The main advantages of … Continue reading

## Non-linear Frame Analysis

Another example using Fortran code published in Programming the Finite Element Method (5th ed. John Wiley & Sons, I.M. Smith, D.V. Griffiths and L. Margetts (2014)), this post provides a spreadsheet based frame analysis program including non-linear bending behaviour and … Continue reading

## Retaining wall analysis – FEA and hand calculations

I have used the PlateMC spreadsheet described in the previous post to compare the results of a finite element analysis of a retaining wall with a similar analysis using the commercial package Strand7, and a simple hand calculation using Coulomb … Continue reading
