Abstract

A high precision triangular shallow shell finite element for the analysis of laminated composite shells is presented. The formulation is based on linear shallow shell theory, with the effects of anisotropic material behavior, and bending-extensional coupling included. Several numerical examples are presented to demonstrate the effectiveness of the element.
