An effective high-order element for analysis of two-dimensional linear problem using SBFEM
The scaled boundary finite element method (SBFEM) is a semi-analytical method, whose versatility, accuracy, and efficiency are not only equal to, but potentially better than the finite element method and the boundary element method for certain problems. This paper investigates the possibility of using an efficient high-order polynomial element in the SBFEM to form the approximation in the circumferential direction. The governing equations are formulated from the classical linear elasticity theory via the SBFEM technique. The scaled boundary finite element equations are formulated within a general framework integrating the influence of the distributed body source, mixed boundary conditions, contributions the side face with either prescribed surface load or prescribed displacement. The position of scaling center is considered for modeling problem. The proposed method is evaluated by solving two-dimensional linear problem. A selected set of results is reported to demonstrate the accuracy and convergence of the proposed method for solving problems in general boundary conditions.
