Abstract

A model for beams with heterogeneous and anisotropic cross-section is presented. A semi-analytical approach which exploits a FEM discretization of the cross-section is used to derive a Ritz-Galerkin approximation of the stress and displacement fields. In this way the Saint-Venant solution is easily generalized to generic composite sections and additional variable warping effects are also included in the model. Numerical results relative to composite beams with compact or thin walled section are presented and compared with full 3D analyses. (C) 2013 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
