Abstract

We propose in this work a very simple torsion-free beam element capable of capturing geometrical nonlinearities. The simple formulation is objective and unconditionally con- vergent for geometrically nonlinear models with large displacements, in the traditional sense that guarantees more precise numerical solutions for finer discretizations. The formulation does not employ rotational degrees of freedom, can be applied to two and three-dimensional problems, and it is computationally very efficient.
