Mixed finite element formulation for folded plates
Nihal Eratli and A. Yalcin Akoz (Turkey)

Abstract     [Full Text]
    In this study, a new functional is obtained for folded plates with geometric (kinematic) and
dynamic (natural) boundary conditions. This functional is the combination of two different functionals.
Both functionals are obtained for thick plates which carry in-plane and lateral forces. A new mixed finite
element is developed with 4
Key Words
    Reissner plate; folded plate; mixed-finite element.
