8 DERIVATION OF FINITE ELEMENT EQUATIONS USING A DIRECT APPROACH The element stiffness (or characteristic) matrices and load (characteristic) vectors and the finite element equations can be derived by using a direct approach. In this method, direct physical reasoning relevant to the problem (such as consideration of equilibrium of the system) is used to establish the element properties (characteristic matrices and vectors) in terms of pertinent variables. The direct approach is applicable only to problems involving simple types of elements; hence most practical (complex) problems cannot be solved using this approach.
