This paper will study and compare two different three-node triangular bending plate elements with three degree of freedom per node, i.e. MITC3 and DKMT. Both elements, which were developed based on Reissner-Mindlin plate theory and independent shear strain field, have simple formulation and have already been used widely. In this paper, numerical tests for circular plate case are conducted to verify the performance and show the convergence of these two triangular elements.
