Abstract: Dynamic analysis of some structures are performed using a solid-shell element. An eight node solid-shell element is used in the analyses. The Assumed Natural Strain (ANS) and the Enhanced Assumed Strain (EAS) methods are used to alleviate the locking problems. The governing equations are solved employing the Newmark’s integration technique. Several benchmark problems are solved to demonstrate the efficiency of the element.
Keywords: Solid- Shell Element; ANS-EAS Method, Dynamic Analysis.

Scope of the Article: Structural Reliability Analysis
