Abstract

The stiffness matrix for a high precision triangular laminated anisotropic cylindrical shell finite element has been formulated and coded into a composite structural analysis program. The versatility of the element's formulation enables its use in the analysis of multi layered composite plate and cylindrical shell type structures taking into account actual lamination parameters. The example applications presented demonstrated that accurate predictions of stresses as well as displacements are obtained with modest number of elements.
