Page 4 F. like disks. plate and shell FE are available in almost all finite element software packages ! The intelligent use of this software and correct interpretation of output requires basic understanding of the underlying theories ! FEM is able to solve problems on geometrically complicated domains ! Analytic methods introduced in the first part of the module are only suitable for computing plates and shells with regular geometries.

Next the equilibrium equations in weak form are considered in preparation for finite elements ! In structural analysis the weak form is also known as the principle of virtual displacements To simplify the derivations we assume that the boundaries of the domain are fixed (built-in. zero displacements) The weak form is constructed by multiplying the equilibrium equations with test functions vi which are zero at fixed boundaries but otherwise arbitrary ! !

The integral on the right hand side is the external virtual work performed by the external forces due to virtual displacements ! ! Note that the material equations have not been used in the preceding derivation. the principle of virtual work is independent of material (valid for elastic. Hence.
