    A curved three noded quadratic isoparametric axisymmetric thick shell element is developed. Field consistency interpretations allow various configurations of the element to be designed so as to satisfy specific problem needs. Typical applications demonstrate the versatility and accuracy of this element in its different problem specific forms.
