Abstract
The paper presents the constructing of a new beam finite element that can give the same deformation as the three-dimensional finite model of connection elements. First, a 3-D model is constructed, meshed (using H8 elements), and analyzed, to obtain the displacements ux, uy, and uz. Then we construct the equivalent two-dimensional (plane stress condition), meshed using Q4 elements. At the final stage, the results of the deformation proposed by our new element for the corners are compared with the results of the 2-D model. We have obtained good agreement, as the new element is tested on several structures with several load types.
