Stiffened orthotropic corner supported hypar shells: Effect of stiffener location, rise/span ratio and fiber orientaton on vibration behavior
Kutlu Darilmaz

    In this paper the influence of stiffener location, rise/span ratio and fibre orientation on vibration behavior of corner supported hypar shells is studied by using a four-node hybrid stress finite element. The formulation of the element is based on Hellinger-Reissner variational principle. The element is developed by combining a hybrid plane stress element and a hybrid plate element. Benchmark problems are solved to validate the approach and free vibration response of stiffened orthotropic hypar shells is studied both with respect to fundamental frequency and mode shapes by varying the location of stiffeners, rise/span ratio and fiber orientation.
Key Words
    stiffened hypar shell, assumed stress hybrid element, finite element, free vibration
