1) Static analysis of plane truss and plane frame structures. 2) Free-vibration analysis of plane truss and plane frame structures. 3) Static analysis using six-degree-of-freedom triangular plane stress and plane strain finite elements. 4) Static analysis using sixteen-degree-of-freedom rectangular plate finite elements in by: crash simulation of composite aircraft structures. 1 Introduction For aircraft manufacturers, designing new structures requires deep investments covering the different phases of the development, including the design, the prototyping and .

The capabilities of the ACTION finite element computer program (ref. 5) are similar to those of DYCAST, described in the next section. Both material and geometric nonlineari ti es are handled by ACTION in a manner similar to DYCAST. The element library is also comparable to that of DYCAST. The difference between ACTION and DYCAST lies in the. Finite Element Analysis (FEA) is a powerful tool that essentially divides a complex structure up into many small elements, where for each the stresses and deformations can be solved for using known equations of elasticity.

A mathematical model for crash simulation of aircraft structures--built up from beams, stringers, and skin panels--is being developed in the form of a finite element, large displacement elastic-plastic computer code called DYCAST. As a preliminary exercise, the code was applied to simulate a low-speCited by: Description: From the fundamentals of impact mechanics and biomechanics to modern analysis and design techniques in impact energy management and occupant protection this book provides an overview of the application of nonlinear finite elements, conceptual modeling and multibody procedures, impact biomechanics, injury mechanisms, occupant mathematical modeling, and .

The model developed for the purposes of this study was created with PLAXIS 3D which is a finite element software that has been developed especially for the analysis of deformation and stability in geotechnical engineering projects.

PLAXIS uses node tetrahedral elements for soil layers and 6-node plate elements. Plate. produce finite element models of structures which match measured dynamic data.
