The following examples are provided to illustrate how users could use FEAP to solve some basic problems.

Static Analyses

Thermal Analyses

Example of a hollow thermal tube with external temperatures and inner fluxes

Example of a 3D hollow thermal tube with external temperatures and inner fluxes

Coupled Thermo-mechanical Analyses

Hill-Mandel Computations

FEAP has a facility for computing Hill-Mandel averages, stress and tangent tensor components. To use this facility one needs to have a periodic mesh.

Lysmer-Kuhlemeyer boundary conditions

FEAP has a simple Lysmer-Kuhlemeyer boundary element that can be used to approximate a non-reflecting boundary in a transient computation.

Contact Problems

Isogeometric Analyses

J-Integral Computation

FEAP has a facility for computing J Integrals (energy release rates) in elastic problems. The feature is slightly experimental so please verify that you are getting sensible answers for your class of problems before relying on it.
