Abstract

A simple formulation of membrane finite elements with drilling degrees of freedom is presented. Elements based on this theory have been proved to converge and this is confirmed by numerical calculations. The incompatible modes approach is incorporated in the formulation to develop extremely accurate four-node elements with drilling degrees of freedom.
