Plastic-zone analysis of 3D steel frames using beam elements
This paper presents a corotational formulation of a spatial beam element for the purpose of 3D plastic-zone analysis of steel frames composed of compact tubular sections and open sections with noExpand

Co-rotational and Lagrangian formulations for elastic three-dimensional beam finite elements
Abstract It has been pointed out in a previous paper by the authors [1] that conservative internal moments of a spatial beam are of the so-called fourth kind, and that the rotation variables whichExpand

Symmetry of Tangent Stiffness Matrices of 3D Elastic Frame
In the literature, the symmetry of the element tangent stiffness matrix of a spatial elastic beam has been a subject of debate. The symmetry of the tangent stiffness matrices derived by someExpand
