Chien H. Thai, Loc V. Tran, Dung T. Tran, T. Nguyen-Thoi, H. Nguyen-Xuan, Analysis of laminated composite plates using higher-order shear deformation theory and node-based smoothed discrete shear gap method, Applied Mathematical Modelling, in press, doi.org/10.1016/j.apm.2012.01.003, 2012.
This paper presents a novel ﬁnite element formulation for static, free vibration and buckling analyses of laminated composite plates. The idea relies on a combination of node-based smoothing discrete shear gap method with the higher-order shear deformation plate theory (HSDT) to give a so-called NS-DSG3 element. The higher-order shear deformation plate theory (HSDT) is introduced in the present method to remove the shear correction factors and improve the accuracy of transverse shear stresses. The formulation uses only linear approximations and its implementation into ﬁnite element programs is quite simple and efﬁcient. The numerical examples demonstrated that the present element is free of shear locking and shows high reliability and accuracy compared to other published solutions in the literature.
