Abstract:

This paper demonstrates the application of finite element methods in both space and time to the partial differential equations that govern beam dynamics. The approach enables design problems for the structural response of beams subject to shock and vibration loading to be posed. Numerical validation of the results using a forward Euler ordinary differential equation solver is also shown.
