This report will review and discuss thin rectangular ANCF shell elements. First, a thorough review of the kinematic descriptions used in the current thin rectangular ANCF shells is given. This review will also contain a derivation of the equations of motion. Subsequently, a novel ANCF shell finite element with dynamic mesh properties is reviewed. This element is characterized by being able to change element size during transient simulation. The following chapter contains a preliminary study of… CONTINUE READING
