Abstract

A Fortane shape function routine is presented for the constant moment triangular plate bending element. The routine also contains the shape functions for the constant inplane stress triangular element enabling it to be used for facet shell analysis. Details are included on calculation of the element stiffness matrix and equivalent nodal forces.
