Comparative Study of Circular Plate Displacement Based on MITC3 Finite Element Formulation

Ika Wulandari, Imam Jauhari Maknun


Abstract— This paper presents a comparison of MITC3 plate element with different mesh directions. MITC3 is a three-node triangular element with three degrees of freedom proposed by Lee and Bathe. The circular plate problem with left and right mesh directions is used in the numerical test to verify the performance and show the convergence of three-node triangular elements.

Keywords—Finite element method, MITC3 plate element, triangular element
