A hybrid method for the spatial discretization of two-dimensional domains is recently derived and applied to the problem of free vibrations of simply-supported singly curved shells. This new method follows from a tensor product of NURBS functions and a carefully selected series that satisfies boundary conditions a priori. The formulation unifies spatial discretization schemes of the semi-analytical Finite strip method and the Isogeometric analysis. In this paper, the method is improved by implementing the capability to deal with clamped-clamped boundary conditions. The numerical analysis shows that the method has favorable accuracy per DOF, in comparison with the standard finite elements.
