Abstract: This paper presents a force-based finite element method that involves eigen-space transformation of element stiffness matrices in the first analysis. In each subsequent analysis ('reanalysis') associated with structural variations, the solution obtained previously is modified making use of intrinsic properties of eigen solutions and avoiding the time-consuming task of solving a large system of equations. The structural variations may involve changes in material properties, birth or death of elements, or change in boundary conditions. Numerical examples are presented to compare the accuracy and computational efficiency of the proposed method with the displacement-based finite element method.
