A robust triangular plate bending element of the Reissner-Mindlin type. (English) Zbl 0634.73064
Summary: A new triangular plate element is presented. This new element is based on independent interpolations for slopes, displacement and shear forces, and it is shown that it does not suffer from any defect common to other Mindlin plate elements. Several examples are presented to illustrate the behaviour of this new element.
