Abstract

This paper deals with the static and dynamic analyses of multi-layered plates with discontinuities. The two-dimensional first-order shear deformation theory is used to derive the fundamental system of equations in terms of generalized displacements. The fundamental set, with its boundary conditions, is solved in its strong form. A new method termed strong formulation finite element method is considered in the present paper to solve this kind of plates. This numerical methodology is the cohesion of derivative evaluation of partial differential systems of equations and a domain sub-division. The numerical results in terms of natural frequencies and maximum deflections are compared to literature and to the same results obtained with a finite element code. The stability, accuracy and reliability of the present methodology is shown through several numerical applications.
