The fully intrinsic equations for plates (and analogous ones for shells), although equally as elegant as the corresponding beam equations, have neither been used for general-purpose finite element nor multi-flexible-body analysis. The fully intrinsic equations for plates have the same advantages of fully intrinsic equations for beams. These equations are geometrically exact, the highest order of nonlinearities is only of second order, and they do not include rotation parameters. We present a finite element formulation for these equations, and then investigate different possible boundary conditions and loading situations on simplified linear version.
