This paper describes a procedure for the generation of shape functions for a family of rectangular plate elements from Lagrangian polynomials. A novel generation procedure is developed from previous work for straight beam elements, where level one Hermitian polynomials were derived from simpler Lagrangian polynomials. A number of examples are provided to illustrate the technique.
