Shelddon is a finite element library developped by the french national research centre INRIA. It is part of the Modulef project, an open-source finite element package available at: Modulef is written in Fortran 77. Even if the core of Shelddon rely upon Modulef, the package is not open-source. Compared to Modulef, major differences are constituted by the implementation of shells MITC non-linear elements and by dynamic Newmark type routines.
