Prathap, Gangan (1985) A simple plate/shell triangle. In: International Journal for Numerical Methods in Engineering, June 1985, United Kingdom.Full text not available from this repository.
A simple shear flexible triangular plate/shell element with three/five displacement degrees-of-freedom at the three corner nodes only, is identified. It does not lock or have zero-energy mechanisms. The specific geometrical configurations in which this is possible are derived through field consistency patch tests.
