Analysis of beams and plates using shear lock free finite elements based on Timoshenko beam and Mindlin-Reissner plate theories

Simple finite elements based on Timoshenko beam and Mindlin plate theories have been developed for the analysis of thick and thin structures (beams and plates) using standard finite element procedure. These elements have 3 dof and a new concept, Convergence Factor, is introduced in the formuation to accelerate convergence keeping the number of elements constant. No shear correction factor is used and no shear lock problem is encountered.

The idea of  development a new finite elements in order to analysis the strength of structures such as beam, plate  is interssted .but  in the case of presence  crack in this structure , this new finite element will give accurate results ?
