Orthotropic Beam and Plate Problems — An Edge-Function Method
An Edge-function method is developed and applied to the solution of orthotropic plane strain and generalized plane stress problems for bodies with rectilinear polygonal cross-section containing elliptical holes. The displacement is approximated by a linear combination of fields each of which satisfy the equilibrium equations. The boundary conditions are approximated using a boundary Galerkin method. Numerical solutions are presented.
