Abstract The majority of existing flat shell finite elements suffer from the deficiencies of displacement incompatibility, singularity when the elements are coplanar at a node, inability to model intersections and low-order membrane strain representation. In this paper, a plate bending element, labeled DKL (for Discrete Kirchoff element with Loof nodes), with the same nodal configuration as a triangular Semiloff plate element, but not formulated through the isoparametric concept is presented. This element when superposed with the linear strain triangle results in a faceted shell element free from the abovementioned deficiencies. Various numerical examples are tested using this plate element so as to demonstrate its reliability, accuracy and convergence characteristics.
