A modified shear deformation theory associated with the four-node quadrilateral element for bending and free vibration analyses of plates
Keywords:Modified shear deformation theory, Four-node quadrilateral element, Bending, Free vibration, Plate
Few years ago, the higher-order shear deformation theory of Shi was proven effective in the analysis of structures. In this paper, the author introduces a modification of above theory combined with four-node quadrilateral elements for bending and free vibration analyses of plates. Shear correction factor is not required here. The acceptable results obtained from the proposed element are a necessary prerequisite for the development of other problems in the near future.
