On the Formulation of General Shell Elements Using Mixed Interpolation of Tensorial Components

Eduardo N. Dvorkin


In this communication we briefly review our research in the field of general nonlinear shell elements formulation.
We begin by defining the requirements we have set upon our development of shell elements, and presenting our approach to meet those requirements. Finally we comment on some practical aspects of the implementation of nonlinear shell elements.
