I want to simulate a vibration of a thin plate (the Kirchhoff-Love model) on triangular meshes. Can you advise me on an introductory-level review of different elements for thin-plate FEM simulation?
I was thinking about Morley elements, but they seem non-conforming (is it really bad? never worked with non-conforming FEM before). Then we have many other elements, and the mixed formulation, and so on - I am astonished by how many approaches there are. Ideally, I would prefer something not very advanced in understanding and doable with open-source FEM libraries.
Any advice is greatly appreciated!
