GBT and Shell finite elements coupling


Commercial finite element (FE) software are frequently used in engineering for analysing structural systems. When the systems are complex, the FE models are of large dimensions, producing a high computational effort. Although simplicity and promptness are two main qualities required for structural analysis, many modelling concepts are confined to the boundaries of a numerical software, such as the numerical method, the model optimisation and the accuracy of the results. In this regard, the generalised beam theory (GBT) is a novel method that is under study to address the analysis of thin-walled members and represents one alternative to the finite element method (FEM). My research is focused on coupling methods in structural analysis that include elements of different order based on FEM and GBT. The coupling-based methods for supports in pipeline systems and coupling-based methods for GBT-elements and 2D-shell elements are under development.
