Geometrically non-linear analysis of shell structures

Moy, S.S.J. and LAM, S.S.E. (1991) Geometrically non-linear analysis of shell structures Communications in Applied Numerical Methods, 7, (5), pp. 377-391. (doi:10.1002/cnm.1630070505).

Record type: Article


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.
