by irregularly shaped elements. Linear elements have an inherent inability to properly account for shear
energy in bending modes resulting in excessive stiffness within the element. The inclusion of extra shape
functions in the element formulation help in correcting the shear energy prediction, but are only suitable
to rectangular element shapes. Hence, rectangular element results for PLANE42 and SOLID45 are in good
agreement. However, as the elements are distorted, the stiffness of the element increases hence overpredicting the bending mode natural frequency. 6. For the quadratic elements (PLANE2, PLANE82, SOLID92, SOLID95), prediction of the first bending mode
is very good. Irregular element shapes for quadratic elements have little effect on the solution accuracy. 2–42 ANSYS Verification Manual . ANSYS Release 9.0 . 002114 . © SAS IP, Inc. Part III. ANSYS LS-DYNA Study Descriptions Chapter 3: ANSYS LS-DYNA Study Overview
