- 1. ECIV 720 A Advanced Structural Mechanics and Analysis Lecture 20: Plates & Shells
- 2. Plates & Shells Loaded in the transverse direction and may be assumed rigid (plates) or flexible (shells) in their plane. Plate elements are typically used to model flat surface structural components Shells elements are typically used to model curved surface structural components Are typically thin in one dimension
- 3. Assumptions Based on the proposition that plates and shells are typically thin in one dimension plate and shell bending deformations can be expressed in terms of the deformations of their midsurface
- 4. Assumptions Stress through the thickness (perpendicular to midsurface) is zero. As a consequence… Material particles that are originally on a straight line perpendicular to the midsurface remain on a straight line after deformation
- 5. Plate Bending Theories Kirchhfoff Shear deformations are neglected Straight line remains perpendicular to midsurface after deformations Material particles that are originally on a straight line perpendicular to the midsurface remain on a straight line after deformation Reissner/Mindlin Shear deformations are included Straight line does NOT remain perpendicular to midsurface after deformations

(Adjacent shell elements should not be co- planar)
- 37. Comments Elements are defined by four nodes. Elements are typically of constant thickness. Bilinear variation of thickness may be considered by appropriate modifications to the system matrices. Nodal values of thickness need to be specified at nodes.

- 55. Comments Elements can be used for the analysis of general plates and shells Plates and Shells with curved edges and faces are accommodated The least order of recommended interpolation is cubic i.e., 16-node quadrilateral 10-node triangular Lower order elements show artificial stiffening Due to spurious shear deformation modes Shear Locking

- 57. Shear Locking Reduced integration of system matrices To alleviate shear locking Numerical integration is exact (Gauss) Displacement formulation yields strain energy that is less than the exact and thus the stiffness of the system is overestimated By underestimating numerical integration it is possible to obtain better results.
- 58. Shear Locking The underestimation of the numerical integration compensates appropriately for the overestimation of the FEM stiffness matrices FE with reduced integration Before adopting the reduced integration element for practical use question its stability and convergence
