Abstract

A geometrically nonlinear assumed strain formulation is introduced in conjunction with bubble function displacements to improve the performance of a nine-node solid shell element. The assumed strain field has been carefully selected to avoid both element locking and undesirable spurious kinematic modes. The results of numerical tests demonstrate that the present approach leads to an element that is significantly less sensitive to mesh distortion than the existing element.

Keywords
