Aim of the paper is to develop and to assess a class of plate finite elements for the analysis of multilayered composite and sandwich structures. The adopted model is the mixed Refined Zigzag Theory (RZT(m)), based on the kinematics of the Refined Zigzag Theory (RZT) and on the assumption of transverse shear stresses coming from integration of indefinite equilibrium equations. A triangular and quadrilateral flat finite element are developed by means of the Reissner’s Mixed Variational Theorem and an interpolation strategy to eliminate shear locking. Several numerical examples are discussed to demonstrate the accuracy of RZT(m) and related finite elements for static response, free-vibrations and critical load problems of sandwich structures.

Abstract

Aim of the paper is to develop and to assess a class of plate finite elements for the analysis of multilayered composite and sandwich structures. The adopted model is the mixed Refined Zigzag Theory (RZT(m)), based on the kinematics of the Refined Zigzag Theory (RZT) and on the assumption of transverse shear stresses coming from integration of indefinite equilibrium equations. A triangular and quadrilateral flat finite element are developed by means of the Reissner’s Mixed Variational Theorem and an interpolation strategy to eliminate shear locking. Several numerical examples are discussed to demonstrate the accuracy of RZT(m) and related finite elements for static response, free-vibrations and critical load problems of sandwich structures.
