In this work we will present a novel approach to compute the potential energy and its derivatives of a shell discretized by finite elements. Afterwards a special solution strategy for quasistatic equilibrium problems with moving boundary conditions is presented. At the end numerical examples are shown, which demonstrate the benefits of this methods in simulating flexible flat cables.
