Análise de Placas pelo Método dos Elementos de Contorno Considerando Regiões de Diferentes Espesuras

João Batista de Paiva, Wilson Sergio Venturini


The boundary element method for plate bending has shown to be an efficient numerical technique to study building floor structures. Floor slabs defined by regions with different thickness are analysed considering the boundary equations for each subregion together with equilibrium and compatibility relations. This paper presents an alternative procedure to avoid effort aproximations along interfaces between subregions. The scheme proposed also gives small matrices in comparison with the subregion technique.
