On a moderate rotation theory of laminated anisotropic shells—Part 2. Finite-element analysis Academic Article uri icon


  • The finite element model of the moderate rotation theory (MRT) is developed and its application to composite plates and shells is presented. Comparison of results obtained by the moderate rotation theory with the von Kármán non-linear theory and continuum 2D theory is made. © 1990.
