Implications of linearizations, approximations and computation algorithms in the second order analysis of frames

Abstract


  • This paper discusses the implications of linearizations, approximations, and computation algorithms involved in the elastic second-order finite element analysis of frames. While most of the linearizations and approximations are well recognized in the literature, their implications on the nonlinear solution prove to be subtle and frequently elude the understanding of researchers in the field. Indeed, a careful reading of the relevant published literature reveals that the formulated equilibrium equations, the computation algorithms used or the statements made by some researchers often lack consistency and rigour. In this paper, algorithms that are consistent with the assumptions applied to nonlinear problems are elucidated and compared with each other. Numerical examples are presented in order to compare differing algorithms and to verify the propositions made in the paper.
