The article deals with methods of creating a rectangular wall-beam finite element with eight degrees of freedom per node and continuous stress fields along the boundaries. This effect is achieved by specifying displacement fields in the plane of the element in forms similar to those in finite elements of Bogner, Fox, and Schmitt plate. The article provides algebraic expressions for displacement forms; methods of forming reaction and stress matrices are also considered. Test calculations carried out with the help of “Computational mechanics” FEM complex have proved high efficiency of the finite element analysis performed. A rectangular shell finite element with twelve degrees of freedom per node was developed as a combination of membrane finite element and Bogner, Fox and Schmitt plate element.
