Seminar by Professor Le Khanh Chau

On December 15, 2023, the lectures from Professor Le Khanh Chau take place in the Conference Room (5th Floor) INSPiRE Library Building. 

Professor Le Khanh Chau presents a talk entitled "Asymptotically accurate and locking-free finite element implementation of first order shear deformation theory for plates"


A formulation of the asymptotically exact first-order shear deformation theory for linear-elastic homogeneous plates in the rescaled coordinates and angles of rotation is considered. This allows the development of its asymptotically accurate and shear-locking-free finite element implementation. As applications, numerical simulations are performed for circular and rectangular plates, showing complete agreement between the analytical solution and the numerical solutions based on two-dimensional theory and three-dimensional elasticity theory.
