Abstract : A finite element development for shells of revolution and cylinders in plane strain is presented. The element is based upon a variational theorem which allows linear displacement expansions in each element, thus, an element is developed which is fully compatible with commonly employed continuum elements. A numerical example is presented along with a computer program listing for shells of revolution. (Author)
