Two-scale Reissner-Mindlin plate model

  • Jouni Tapani Freund aalto yliopisto


A two-scale plate model, in which the displacement assumption consists of the Reissner-Mindlin and warping parts, is presented. To reduce the modelling error of the classical Reissner-Mindlin model, the warping part is chosen so that the overall displacement satisfies the full 3D elasticity equations as well as possible. Pressure loaded isotropic homogeneous plate is used as an application example.
