Abstract

Many finite elements exhibit the so‐called ‘volumetric locking’ in the analysis of incompressible or quasi‐incompressible problems.In this paper, a new approach is taken [...]

Abstract

The paper presents a new triangle for analysis of laminate plates and shells. The in-plane degrees of freedom are interpolated quadratically whereas a linear layer-wise approximation is chosen for the normal displacement. A substructuring technique is used to eliminate the in-plane [...]
