A new h-version adaptive refinement scheme is developed for the analysis of Thin-walled structures in elastostatic range. The basic concepts of adaptivity for the finite element method are discussed and a brief review of the related theories and techniques is presented. Focus is devoted to three essential ingredients for the whole adaptive refinement scheme: automatic mesh generation, error estimation on the FE solution and adaptive refinement scheme design.
