Abstract

Hybrid-Trefftz stress finite elements have been applied with success to the analysis of linear and non-linear problems in structural mechanics. Two independent fields are approximated: stresses within the elements and displacements on their boundary. The stress field satisfies the Trefftz constraint a priori, i.e., it is extracted from the Navier equation solution. This type of element has provided remarkable improvement in stress predictions compared to the standard displacement-based finite elements. In this work, solution of stress concentration problems is carried out by hexahedral hybrid-Trefftz stress element models. Stress concentration factors and stress intensity factors are then identified and compared with available results. The hierarchicalp-refinement strategy is exploited in the numerical tests.
