Finite Element Analysis Considering Material Porosity 2011-36-0136

The application of finite element method (FEM) is widespread used to structural analysis. However the prescription or the consideration of a porous material parameter is still challenging.Thus, this work proposes a methodology applied to the finite element method considering a value of porosity.The goal is evaluate the structural behavior considering prescription of material porosity for 03 (three) loading conditions: analysis of natural frequencies extraction;analysis for concentrated load;analysis for inertial loading.Also is presented a comparison between different mesh refinement (size of element), and damaged elasticity modulus.
