What is the PDE you are solving? If linear elasticity, then
probably yes. libMesh does not support any type of shell
elements at the moment, only standard Hexahedral, Tetrahedral,
and Prismatic elements (3D).
libMesh is not a "package" in the sense that it will model the
tension test straight out of the box. You will have to code the
matrix formation routines yourself (see examples for details.)
