A solid beam and a composite beam were used to compare how MSC Nastran, ABAQUS, and ANSYS handled the numerical difficulties of shear locking and hourglassing. Their tip displacements and first modes were computed, normalized, and listed in multiple tables under various situations. It was found that fully integrated first order solid elements in these three finite element codes exhibited similar shear locking. It is thus recommended that one should avoid using this type of element in bending… 
Application of Three Nodded Finite Element Beam Model to Beam on Elastic Foundation
The convergence of numerical solution based on two nodded beam finite element require considerable number of iterations and time; and is also plagued with shear locking. To address these deficiencies
