A new finite element for free vibration analysis of stiffened composite plates

Tran Ich Thinh, Ngo Nhu Khoa


A new 6-noded stiffened triangular plate element for the analysis of stiffened composite plates based on Mindlins deformation plate theory has been developed. The stiffened plate element is a combination of basic triangular element and bar component. The element can accommodate any number of arbitrarily oriented stiffeners and obviates the use of mesh lines along the stiffeners. Free vibration analyses of stiffened laminated plates have been carried out with this element and the results are compared with those published. The finite element results show very good matching with the experimental ones.
