Abstract

A new bilinear four‐noded quadrilateral element (called quadrilateral linear refined zigzag) for the analysis of composite laminated and sandwich plates/shells based on the refined zigzag [...]

Abstract

A unified approach for the vibration analysis of curved or straight prismatic plates and bridges and axisymmetric shells using a finite strip method based in Reissner—Mindlin shell [...]

Abstract

In this paper a finite strip formulation which allows to treat bridges, axisymmetric shells or plate structures of constant transverse cross section in an easily and unified manner is presented. [...]
