This paper presents a formulation for analysis of thin elastic membranes using a rotation-free shell element within an explicit time integration strategy. The applications presented are isotropic/anisotropic rectangular membranes under shear forces and fabric drapes falling over a pedestal. Results are compared with other numerical results existing in the literature.
