    CHAPTER 6: 3D SOLIDS A 3D solid can have any shape, size, boundary conditions, etc.

    All six stress components and all three displacement components must be considered.

    A solid of revolution generated by revolving a plane shape about an axis in the plane.

    Nothing varies with the circumferential coordinate if loads, supports and elastic properties are also axisymmetric.

    No circumferential displacement and r=z=0.

    The problem is mathematically two-dimensional and is usually modeled with plane triangles and quadrilaterals.

    Hence we model a longitudinal cross-section for Rin < r < Rout.

    Stiffness Matrix Displacements are interpolated from nodal dof as usual, u=Nd with N being the shape function matrix.

    When u is substituted in strain-displacement equation, the strain-displacement matrix B is obtained, which is used to compute the element stiffness matrix:

    Constant Strain Tetrahedron

    Has four nodes with three translational dofat each one. (total of 12 dof)

    Like CST, accurate only when the true strains are almost constant over its domain. CTETRA in Genesis

    The displacement field is

    Linear Strain Tetrahedron

    Has ten nodes with three translational dof at each one. (total of 30 dof)

    Like the plane LST, has a linear strain field. Therefore it can model pure bending.

    Edges can be curved.

    Not available in Genesis

    The displacement field is quadratic, for example:2 2

    Trilinear Hexahedron (8-node brick)

    Has eight nodes with three translational dof at each one. (total of 24 dof)

    Of arbitrary shape; formulated as an isoparametric element.CHEXA in Genesis

    Trilinear Hexahedron: Displacement Field

    which is a product of three linear functions in x, y, and z.

    Genesis also has a CPENTA element for connecting a CTETRA to

    Quadratic Hexahedron

    Has 20 nodes and 60 dof. CHEX20 in Genesis

    Extension of quadratic quadrilateral (plane element)

    Edges of an undeformed element can be straight or curved.
