Title

Aspects in application of finite element approach to predict mechanical response of materials

Abstract

"There are many applications for finite element modeling that fit well into the metallurgical realm. Two aspects were looked at in this thesis. The first examined the error incurred in a tensile test based on geometry. Gauge length was looked at and found to play a significant role in error. As the gauge length increases, the error descreases. Also examined in this thesis was a theoretical composite material. The main focus was comparison of beam bending deflection with respect to an equivalent classical composite and a non-composite beam both of identical geometry. There was a region of synergistic improvement, but diminishing returns to increases were also found.--Abstract, page iii.
