Abstract : Based on the modified complementary energy principle, the paper describes a hybrid-stress rectangular flexural element suitable for characteristics of laminated fiber composite plates. This element can take into account the effects of transverse shear deformation and local warping. In the dynamic analysis, the interior element displacements are assumed to be compatible with the boundary displacements. The element has the characteristics of fewer degrees of freedom, convenience in application, and high accuracy in numerical calculations. China, Chinese language, Translations. (jes)
