Shear flexible triangular finite element models of laminated composite plates and shells which can provide accurate numerical solutions to problems in mechanics of composites are described. Application of these elements to the analysis of laminated composite plate and shell problems featuring stress concentration, stress singularity and constrained thermal expansion is demonstrated. Examples considering graphite and glass fiber epoxy composites are presented. 10 ref.--AA
