FINITE ELEMENT MODELLING OF STRUCTURAL VIBRATIONS: A REVIEW OF RECENT ADVANCES

This review of research into the finite-element modelling of structural vibrations concentrates on references to the literature published since 1967 on the vibrations of beams, plates, and shells. An important feature of the finite-element method is that a systematic procedure is used to obtain properties of the element by its governing equations without regard to the specific problem. For example, if the equations corresponding to beam, plate, and shell elements are known, any structure containing these elements can be analysed. Such flexibility, coupled with the advent of the digital computer, has resulted in the development of a number of general-purpose computer programs for analysing a variety of complex engineering problems. There is an extensive list of references.
