In this paper, the three dimensional (3D) elasticity theory is used to investigate the accuracy of shell and solid elements of typical commercial finite element analysis (FEA) software packages. This is done with thick cylindrical shells in mind. The FEA software ABAQUS® is used in modeling. A First order shear deformation thick shell theory is used as well to show that if an improved shell theory is used the accuracy of shell elements can be improved.
