Stability Analysis of Plates
Boundary element only formulations for the stability analysis of isotropic and anisotropic plates are presented. Domain integrals which arise in the formulation are transformed into boundary integrals by the radial integration method and the dual reciprocity method. Plate buckling equations are formulated as standard eigenvalue problem. The accuracy of the proposed formulations including buckling coefficients and buckling modes is assessed by comparison with results from literature.
