  • slope stability analysis
  • The technique has been used most significantly in the field of soil mechanics for the determination of collapse loads for geotechnical problems (e.g. slope stability analysis). (wikipedia.org)
  • Slope stability analysis is performed to assess the safe design of a human-made or natural slopes (e.g. embankments, road cuts, open-pit mining, excavations, landfills etc.) and the equilibrium conditions. (wikipedia.org)
  • The main objectives of slope stability analysis are finding endangered areas, investigation of potential failure mechanisms, determination of the slope sensitivity to different triggering mechanisms, designing of optimal slopes with regard to safety, reliability and economics, designing possible remedial measures, e.g. barriers and stabilization.

  • Often, the components of the interpolant between two or more nodes belonging to a given finite element are then constructed separately on the basis the individual degrees of freedom, thus eliminating the interplay between translations and rotations that can be observed in the physical reality. (uni-kassel.de)
  • In step (2) above, a global system of equations is generated from the element equations through a transformation of coordinates from the subdomains' local nodes to the domain's global nodes. (wikipedia.org)

  • performs
  • ADINA R & D performs all developments of the ADINA program in-house, and focuses on reliable and efficient finite element procedures. (wikipedia.org)
  • After the analyst performs a natural frequency analysis to determine the mode shapes and natural frequencies, the DDAM process then uses an input spectrum of shock design values (i.e., displacements or accelerations) based on data from a series of unclassified Naval Research Laboratory reports (primarily MR-1396, Design Values for Shock Design of Shipboard Equipment and FR-6267, Background for Mechanical Shock Design of Ships).

  • equation
  • These equation sets are the element equations. (wikipedia.org)
  • In applying FEA, the complex problem is usually a physical system with the underlying physics such as the Euler-Bernoulli beam equation, the heat equation, or the Navier-Stokes equations expressed in either PDE or integral equations, while the divided small elements of the complex problem represent different areas in the physical system. (wikipedia.org)
  • mathematical
  • On the Lie algebra, which is, by its mathematical construction, a vector space, rotations can be represented as translations, and it is this aspect which makes this approach particularly interesting for finite-element calculations that involve the modelling of rotations. (uni-kassel.de)
  • methodology
  • Choice of correct analysis technique depends on both site conditions and the potential mode of failure, with careful consideration being given to the varying strengths, weaknesses and limitations inherent in each methodology. (wikipedia.org)
