Mathematical Construction of a Reissner–Mindlin Plate Theory for Composite Laminates
03 Jun 2015 | Publications | Contributor(s): Wenbin Yu
A Reissner–Mindlin theory for composite laminates without invoking ad hoc kinematic assumptions is constructed using the variational-asymptotic method. Instead of assuming a priori the distribution of three-dimensional displacements in terms of two-dimensional plate displacements as what is...
Assessing VABS against ABAQUS Beam Section Generate
27 May 2015 | Teaching Materials | Contributor(s): Su Tian, Wenbin Yu
We did a case study for a composite beam using VABS and ABAQUS beam section generate capability and compared with detailed 3D FEA analysis. The conclusion is that VABS can reproduce the detailed 3D FEA analysis at an efficiency much faster than ABAQUS beam capability. The accuracy of ABAQUS beam...
