Meshing a plate using four noded elements (Scripts) Publisher's description
To discretize a plate using four noded elements
To discretize a plate using four noded elements. In plate bending (http://www.mathworks.in/matlabcentral/file...9-plate-bending) and in the plane stress problem (http://www.mathworks.in/matlabcentral/file...-stress-problem) I have used a FEM software for preprocessing the plate. The function MeshPlate here in the code can be used for preprocessing the plate. Giving length, breadth, number of elements as input, the function plots the mesh of the plate and gives nodal coordinates, nodal connectivities as the output. These outputs can be used for the Finite Element Analysis of the plates.
