Abstract

Some deficiencies of a shear flexible triangular laminated composite plate finite element designated as TRIPLT are identified. Use of a scaling factor on the shear stiffness to remedy these deficiencies is outlined. The approach is shown to significantly improve the convergence with mesh refinement and accuracy for a given mesh in a variety of example problems. (Author)
