Abstract. In this work an Immersed-Boundary-Conformal coupling method for coupling shells is presented. The linear elastic static analysis is carried out using the Kirchhoff-Love shell model. The variational statement is discretized with an Isogeometric Analysis approach. The method employs auxiliary shell patches conformal to the interfaces which are coupled to the main ones using an Interior Penalty formulation. Results showing the potential of such approach to study multi-component shell structures are provided.
