A geometrically nonlinear beam model suitable for describing complex 3D effects due to non-uniform warpings including non-standard in-plane distortions of the cross-section is presented and applied to the buckling analysis of beams. Each section is endowed with a corotational frame where statics and kinematics are described using a refined linear elastic model which exploits a semi-analytical solution of the Cauchy continuum problem based on a FEM discretization of the cross-section. The stress field in this way is fully 3D, allowing both the exact recovery of the standard Saint Venant solution and the consideration of some additional relevant strain modes of the cross-section that are evaluated in a simple and effective way. Numerical results are presented and compared with 3D shell reference solutions obtained by using the commercial code ABAQUS.

Abstract

A geometrically nonlinear beam model suitable for describing complex 3D effects due to non-uniform warpings including non-standard in-plane distortions of the cross-section is presented and applied to the buckling analysis of beams. Each section is endowed with a corotational frame where statics and kinematics are described using a refined linear elastic model which exploits a semi-analytical solution of the Cauchy continuum problem based on a FEM discretization of the cross-section. The stress field in this way is fully 3D, allowing both the exact recovery of the standard Saint Venant solution and the consideration of some additional relevant strain modes of the cross-section that are evaluated in a simple and effective way. Numerical results are presented and compared with 3D shell reference solutions obtained by using the commercial code ABAQUS.
