A total Lagrangian formulation for the large displacement large rotation: analysis of shells using finite elements is presented. Different expressions for the strain matrix obtained using various displacement interpolation forms are discussed and details of the obtention of the tangent stiffness matrix are given. Simplifications of the general 3D shell formulation for 2D shells are also presented together with some examples of applications.
