This paper presents a novel approach for solving direct problems in linear elasticity involving plate and shell structures. The method relies upon a combination of Physics-Informed Neural Networks and Extreme Learning Machine. A subdomain decomposition method is proposed as a viable mean for studying structures composed by multiple plate/shell elements, as well as improving the solution in domains composed by one single element. Sensitivity studies are presented to gather insight into the effects of different network configurations and sets of hyperparameters. Within the framework presented here, direct problems can be solved with or without available sampled data. In addition, the approach can be extended to the solution of inverse problems. The results are compared with exact elasticity solutions and finite element calculations, illustrating the potential of the approach as an effective mean for addressing a wide class of problems in structural mechanics.

Abstract

This paper presents a novel approach for solving direct problems in linear elasticity involving plate and shell structures. The method relies upon a combination of Physics-Informed Neural Networks and Extreme Learning Machine. A subdomain decomposition method is proposed as a viable mean for studying structures composed by multiple plate/shell elements, as well as improving the solution in domains composed by one single element. Sensitivity studies are presented to gather insight into the effects of different network configurations and sets of hyperparameters. Within the framework presented here, direct problems can be solved with or without available sampled data. In addition, the approach can be extended to the solution of inverse problems. The results are compared with exact elasticity solutions and finite element calculations, illustrating the potential of the approach as an effective mean for addressing a wide class of problems in structural mechanics.
