Numerical analysis of junctions between plates. (English) Zbl 0687.73068
Summary: The junctions of bars, plates and shells are the basic ingredients of any industrial structural construction. The numerical simulation of such junctions is a classical part of the commercial finite element codes. On the other hand there seem to be very few mathematical studies of such junctions. In this paper, we propose a variational formulation of plate junctions when these junctions can be considered as elastic or rigid hinges. Then, we study the mathematical properties of these equations as their approximation by finite element methods. We conclude by reporting some numerical experiments.
