Generation of shape functions for rectangular plate elements.

Augarde, C. E. (2004) 'Generation of shape functions for rectangular plate elements.', Communications in numerical methods in engineering., 20 (8). pp. 655-663.


This paper describes a procedure for the generation of shape functions for a family of rectangular plate elements from Lagrangian polynomials. A novel generation procedure is developed from previous work for straight beam elements, where level one Hermitian polynomials were derived from simpler Lagrangian polynomials. A number of examples are provided to illustrate the technique.

Item Type:Article
