A novel hybrid finite element model for modeling anisotropic composites

Cao, Changyong; Yu, Aibing; Qin, Qing Hua


In this paper we proposed a novel hybrid Trefffz-type finite element method to simulate mechanical behavior of anisotropic composite materials based on its associated Green's functions. The hybrid method is formulated based on two independent assumptions: intra-element field covering the element domain and inter-element frame field along the element boundary. A modified functional, which satisfies the governing equation, boundary and continuity conditions between elements, is proposed to derive...[Show more]
