In general, shell structural problems can be identified to fall into one of the categories of membrane‐dominated, bending‐dominated and mixed shell problems. The asymptotic behaviour with a well‐defined load‐scaling factor shows distinctly into which category a given shell problem falls. The objective of this paper is to present a shell problem and its solution for which there is no convergence to a well‐defined load‐scaling factor as the thickness of the shell decreases. Such shells are unduly… 
An efficient hybrid / mixed element for geometrically nonlinear analysis of plate and shell structures
In this paper, a geometrically nonlinear hybrid/mixed curved quadrilateral shell element (HMSHEL4N) with four nodes is developed based on the modified Hellinger/Reissner variational principles. The
Geometrically nonlinear analysis of shell structures using a flat triangular shell finite element
SummaryThis paper presents a state of the art review on geometrically nonlinear analysis of shell structures that is limited to the co-rotational approach and to flat triangular shell finite
An enhanced strain 3D element for large deformation elastoplastic thin-shell applications
In this work a previously proposed solid-shell finite element, entirely based on the Enhanced Assumed Strain (EAS) formulation, is extended in order to account for large deformation elastoplastic
Asymptotic energy behavior of two classical intermediate benchmark shell problems
We consider two classical problems which are widely used as benchmark tests for shell numerical methods: the Scordelis-Lo roof and the pinched roof. Due to the particular load and boundary conditions
Enhanced transverse shear strain shell formulation applied to large elasto‐plastic deformation problems
In this work, a previously proposed Enhanced Assumed Strain (EAS) finite element formulation for thin shells is revised and extended to account for isotropic and anisotropic material non‐linearities.
ON THE RELIABILITY OF TRIANGULAR FINITE ELEMENTS FOR SHELLS
In engeneering practice we often deal with shell structures of complex geometry which forcely incorporate triangular elements when being meshed. Therefore, effective triangular shell elements (namely
On the finite element analysis of shells and their full interaction with Navier-stokes fluid flows
TLDR
A new solution approach (a flow-condition-based interpolation, FCBI, finite element scheme) to solve high Reynolds number incompressible fluid flows and the full interactions of these flows with general shell structures is developed.

TLDR
Diversity in the basic mathematical characteristics of shell deformation states and shell models is demonstrated and how this diversity is reflected in the accuracy of standard finite element approximations of both low and high order is shown.

SUMMARY We show that although no actual mathematical shell model is explicitly used in ‘general shell element’ formulations, we can identify an implicit shell model underlying these nite element
