A new three node shell triangular element with translational degree of freedom as the only nodal variables is presented. The element formulation is based on combining a standard linear finite element interpolation with a cell centered finite volume scheme. Details of the implementation of the element in an explicit dynamic code operating in parallel on networks of PC's are presented. The efficiency and applicability of the new rotation free shell triange is shown in the solution of some contact/impact and crash worthiness problem.
