Plate Bending Analysis

  • Apostol Poceski
Part of the Lecture Notes in Engineering book series (LNENG, volume 72)


The plate bending problem is one of the first problems analyzed at the beginning of the development of the FEM. For the first time, the mixed formulation of the finite elements, i.e. the mixed method, was applied to this problem [8]. More details on the historical background of the mixed method were given in ch.2.9. The development of the method in the solution of the plate bending problem will be given here in short.
