To discretize thin shells using four noded elements. Thin cylindrical shells, spherical shells and conical shells can be meshed/discretized using four and three noded elements to use in Finite Element Analysis. On entering necessary inputs like length, breadth, radius, angle, number of elements etc., a Finite Element Mesh is plotted and nodal connectivity's and nodal coordinates are obtained.
