Abstract

This paper briefly describes a rotation-free three-node triangular shell elements enhanced formulation and some industrial processes applications where the robustness and accuracy of the element behaviour have been validated. The enhanced formulation is an extension of the rotation free lamina elements (BST, EBST), used for the analysis of smooth surfaces, to the general study of complex branched surfaces behaviour (profiles).
