3D-shell elements and their underlying mathematical model

Abstract : We focus on a family of shell elements which are a direct generalization of the shell elements most commonly used in engineering practice. The elements in the family include the effects of the through-the-thickness normal stress and can be employed to couple directly with surrounding media on either surfaces of the shell. We establish the "underlying" mathematical model of the shell discretization scheme, and we show that this mathematical model features the same asymptotic behaviors "when the shell thickness becomes increasingly smaller" as classical shell models. The question of "locking" of the finite element discretization is also briefly addressed and we point out that, for an effective finite element scheme, the MITC approach of interpolation is available.
