Abstract

Stiffeners are commonly used to improve the load carrying capacity of a structure. Under general loading conditions, the stiff faces of the sandwich panel undergo significant transverse bending deformations while the stiffeners experience both in-plane and transverse bending deformations. Finite element analysis of such structures may require severe mesh refinement in order to achieve the desired accuracy; thus, leading to impractical computations. In this study, a new element is developed for the analysis of sandwich panels with internal and/or external stiffeners in order to achieve computational accuracy and efficiency.
