Abstract:

A curved finite element is developed for the analysis of a laminated, axisymmetric shell of revolution with transverse shear deformation. The element stiffness relations are obtained from the principle of minimum potential energy. The shell displacements represent four degrees of freedom at a node, two translation, two rotation.
