Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Computer Utilization in Structural Engineering


Finite element models for the analysis of plates and shells, based on the concept of hp-extension are presented. A methodology for the control and analysis of the error of the finite element solution is developed. Numerical results obtained using the proposed methodology are given.
