FEM by developing

generalized codes in MATLAB. The analysis comprises of the static analysis of frame and the variation of various parameters such as displacement, moment etc with increasing number of storey’s as well as dynamic analysis wherein a code is developed to find the natural frequency of the structure along with the various other parameters. A structure is always vibrating under dynamic loading such as wind etc and if the vibrating frequency equals the natural frequency of the structure, resonance might take place. It is thus necessary to analyze all these aspects of a structure first which we aim with our study.
