Hierarchical hp Finite Elements inHybrid

  title={Hierarchical hp Finite Elements inHybrid},
  author={D. J. Sherwin},
In this paper we introduce a new set of hp nite element expansions for use in hybrid domains using hexahedrons, prisms, pyramids and tetrahedrons. The expansions are explained in terms of a uniied notation which incorporates the standard hexahedral hp nite element expansion. The new bases are motivated from a set of orthogonal polynomial expansions within each of the hybrid domains. The polynomial expansions are a generalised product of functions based upon a local coordinate system with… CONTINUE READING
