|Abstract:||An algorithm to calculate shape function values at specific points is presented. It applies to three-dimensional serendipity elements with variable node numbers per side and, as a particular case, to plane and truss elements. The procedure is shown for the two-dimensional case using the natural orthogonal reference system of the element and is then generalized to the three-dimensional case. The source code of the described algorithms written in Fortran 77 is included.|
