Abstract

This paper presents finite element analysis of laminated anisotropic beams of bimodulus materials. The finite element has 16 d.o.f. and uses the displacement field in terms of first order Hermite interpolation polynomials. As the neutral axis position may change from point to point along the length of the beam, an iterative procedure is employed to determine the location of zero strain points along the length. Using this element some problems of laminated beams of bimodulus materials are solved for concentrated loads/moments perpendicular and parallel to the layering planes as well as combined loads.
