Geometrically nonlinear analysis of plane trusses and plane frames
The results of this work are the closed-form expressions for the tangent and secant
stiffness matrices of the 3-node Mindlin frame element. From the study of two
solution methods and the behavior of the three elements, several conclusions have
been made as follows:
