Abstract

Abstract With a few exceptions, finite element packages available in today's commercial software environment contain in their libraries displacement-type elements only. The present paper aims to demonstrate the feasibility that properly formulated mixed-type elements compete most favorably with displacement-type elements and should, therefore, be considered as potential candidates for inclusion in general purpose finite element packages. In doing so, the development of a new triangular doubly—curved mixed-hybrid shallow shell element and its extensive testing in carefully chosen example problems are reported on.
