Folded Plate Analysis by Minimum Energy Principle

by M.N. Fialkow,

Serial Information: Journal of the Structural Division, 1962, Vol. 88, Issue 3, Pg. 1-34

Document Type: Journal Paper


Principle of minimum total potential energy is applied to analysis of folded plate structures; method of analysis is developed in detail for case of folded plates simply supported at ends and subjected to longitudinally symmetrical loadings; strain-energy expressions are developed both for stress resultants ordinarily considered (longitudinal direct stresses and transverse slab moments) and also for other remaining stress resultants; example presented.
