An updated Lagrangian finite element formulation of a three-dimensional pipe elbow element is presented for large displacement and large rotation dynamic analysis. In this formulation a particular linearization method is used to avoid inaccuracies normally associated with the linearization schemes. The formulation has been implemented in a nonlinear finite element code and the results are verified. It is shown that the proposed formulation generates improved results over those previously reported in the literature.
