A new 3D co-rotational beam element for nonlinear dynamic analysis
2015 (English)In: COMPDYN 2015, 2015, 1087-1110 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
The paper investigates the contribution of the warping deformations and the shear center location on the dynamic response of 3D thin-walled beams obtained with an original consistent co-rotational formulation developed by the authors. Consistency of the formulation is ensured by employing the same kinematic assumptions to derive both the static and dynamic terms. Hence, the element has seven degrees of freedom at each node and cubic shape functions are used to interpolate local transversal displacements and axial rotations. Accounting for warping deformations and the position of the shear center produces additional terms in the expressions of the inertia force vector and the tangent dynamic matrix. The performance of the present formulation is assessed by comparing its predictions against 3D-solid FE solutions.
