Remarks on Quadrilateral Reissner-Mindlin Plate Elements

Abstract

Over the last two decades, there has been an extensive effort to devise and analyze £nite elements schemes for the approximation of the Reissner–Mindlin plate equations which avoid locking, numerical overstiffness resulting in a loss of accuracy when the plate is thin. There are now many triangular and rectangular £nite elements, for which a mathematical… (More)
