ON COMPARISON OF 3D ISOGEOMETRIC TIMOSHENKO AND BERNOULLI BEAM FORMULATIONS
Keywords:Bernoulli theory, curved beam element, isogeometric analysis, NURBS, Timoshenko theory.
Application of isogeometric analysis (IGA) for curved beams is very convenient for its ability of exact representation of curved geometries. Several beam formulation has been presented since the introduction of IGA. In this paper, two different beam formulations are presented: Bernoulli beam formulation of A. M. Bauer et al. , and Timoshenko beam element introduced by G. Zhang et al. . Both beam elements are implemented and their performance is documented on the fully threedimensional
example of helicoidal spring.
