Laminated composite plate and shell

Post by oncoskun »

Are there any examples that shows how to implement laminated composite plates and shells?

I read that Shell Equations of Classical Elasticity and Plate Equations of Linear Elasticity can be applied to finite element space. But for Reissner-Mindlin plate I don't see in plane DOFs defined. Is it possible to run a buckling analysis with both shell and plate elements?

Is it also possible to define ABD F matrix as a function of X and Y coordinates?
