Analysis of Plates under Point Load Using Zener Material Model

Fethi Kadıoğlu*, Gülçin Tekin
Abstract—In this study, the mixed finite element method in the Laplace-Carson space is developed for viscoelastic plates under point load using Zener material model, utilizing the functional through a systematic procedure based on the Gâteaux Differential. The functional has four independent variables; deflection, two bending moments and one twisting moment in addition to the geometric and dynamic boundary conditions in Laplace-Carson space. The results obtained in the Laplace-Carson domain are converted to real time domain by inverse Laplace transform via Dubner & Abate’s and Durbin's algorithms. The performance of the developed solution technique is tested through various quasi-static problems.

Index Terms—Classical plate theory, Gâteaux differential, viscoelasticity, Zener material model.
