The linkage framework of geometric modeling and analysis based on the NURBS technology is developed in this study. The NURBS surfaces are generated by interpolating the given set of data points or by extracting the necessary information to construct the NURBS surface from the IGES format file which is generated by the commercial CAD systems in the present study. Numerical examples shows the rate of displacement convergence according to the paramterization methods of the NURBS surface. NURBS can generate quadric surfaces in an exact manner. It is the one of the advantages of the NURBS. A trimmed NURBS surface that is often encountered in the modeling process of the CAD systems is also presented in the present study. The performance of the developed geometrically exact shell element integrated with the exact geometric representations by the NURBS equation is compared to those of the previous reported FE shell elements in the selected benchmark problems.
