A new four-node (non-flat) general quadrilateral shell element for geometric and material non-linear analysis is presented. The element is formulated using threedimensional continuum mechanics theory and it is applic­ able to the analysis of thin and thick shells. The for­ mulation of the element and the solutions to various test and demonstrative example problems are presented and discussed.
