The paper presents a finite element formulation for the geometrically non-linear analysis of shells. The formulation is based on the Hellinger—Reissner approach and uses internal transverse shear stress unknowns to alleviate the problem of shear locking. A ring and a quadrilateral element are presented, together with three examples which demonstrate the accuracy of the elements.
