3d-shell Elements and Their Underlying Mathematical Model

  title={3d-shell Elements and Their Underlying Mathematical Model},
  author={Klaus-J{\"u}rgen Bathe},
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… CONTINUE READING
