Abstract: The present work is a first attempt at extending mesh adaptivity to 3D shell elements. The Q4GS 4-node shell is taken as a first example because it is one of the most efficient and used shell elements in EPX. Then, also the T3GS triangle (which is similar to Q4GS as far as formulation is concerned) is considered. Finally, the case of 2D shells, i.e. of 2-node “segment-like” elements, is considered (this element shape can also represent beams or bars in either 2D or 3D). The treatment of shells/beams/bars presents some particularities with respect to the continuum elements considered in previous work.
