A New Element Model of Solid Bodies

Based on the generalized Hooke's law and the superposition principle, a new element model of linearly elastic and orthotropic solid bodies is presented. Furthermore, the paper provides a new method for analyzing solid bodies. This new element is a simple truss, and a solid body is considered to consist of many such truss elements, then the solid body becomes a truss structure. Thus the internal forces and displacements of the solid body can be obtained by calculating this truss structure.

Keywords: solid body, element model, Elasticity, Hooke's law, truss element
