1D Spring elements finite element MATLAB code
This MATLAB code is for onedimensional spring elements with one degree of freedom per node parallel to spring axis. This code plots the initial configuration and deformed configuration as well as the relative displacement of each element on them. Results are verified with examples of textbook; arbitrary input geometry, nodal loads, and material properties for each element can be defined by user.

1D Beam elements finite element MATLAB code
This MATLAB code is for onedimensional beam elements with two degrees of freedom per node (one translational perpendicular to beam axis and one rotational). Results are verified with examples of textbook ; arbitrary input geometry, nodal loads, and material properties for each element can be defined by user.

2D Truss elements finite element MATLAB code
This MATLAB code is for twodimensional truss elements (plane truss structures).

What is Finite Element Method?
The finite element method (FEM) is a numerical method for solving problems of engineering and mathematical physics. It is also referred to as finite element analysis (FEA). Typical problem areas of interest include structural analysis, heat transfer, fluid flow, mass transport, and electromagnetic potential. The analytical solution of these problems generally require the solution to boundary value problems for partial differential equations. Read more about Finite Element MethodsWhat is MATLAB?
MATLAB (matrix laboratory) is a multiparadigm numerical computing environment. A proprietary programming language developed by MathWorks, MATLAB allows matrix manipulations, plotting of functions and data, implementation of algorithms, creation of user interfaces, and interfacing with programs written in other languages, including C, C++, C#, Java, Fortran and Python.What reference books did I use for my codes?
