Vibration Analysis of Reissner-Mindlin Plates Using Quadrilateral Heterosis Element
The free vibration of the eigenfrequencies and models of a rectangular p1ate with simply supported comp1eted clamped supported were calculated by finite element method using the quadrilateral heterosis element. Firstly, the basic Governing equations of Reissner-Mindlin plate for elastodynamics was introduced, And then the finite element model of the plate vibration was established, nine nodes heterosis element was adopted, the stiffness matrix and mass matrix were obtained. Selective-reduced integration scheme was carried out to eliminatethe curvature thickness and the transverse shear locking phenomena in the plate bending. Numerical experiments of plate free vibration using heterosis element with quadrilateral linear shape functions for the displacements was studied, eight models ware obtained which were closely to the closed solutions, the results show that the method successfully yields a stabilized element.
