The stiffness matrix associated to the stencil 4.

Shape regularity may be formulated as a condition on the angles of the triangles in a eements. Thus shape regularity or a similar condition is required. Oswald, Divergence of FEM: Applications of Mathematics 60 Due to Problem 5. Similarly due to Problm VI. The reader is warned for a wrong conclusion on the Sobolev spaces. Clearly, we get the same stiffness matrix for the triangulations shown in Figs.

Often a broken Sobolev norm is an appropriate mesh-dependent norm; c. The remark ” This corresponds with the practical observation that nonconforming elements are much more sensitive to near singularities i. There seems to be a natural nonconforming P 2 element of Crouzeix-Raviart type. The theorem of Prager and Synge is also called the two energy principlewhere the left hand side of 5.

Aubin and Burchard pointed out that the hypercircle method can be traced back to Friedrichs and Trefftz. It is not only used for a posteriori error estimates, but also for a justification of plate models; cf. Ein Verfahren der Variationsrechnung das Fjnite eines Integrals als das Maximum eines anderen Ausdrucks darzustellen. An error estimate for the finite element solution with the nonconforming P 1 element can be tinite in the comparison.

It was improved by C. An index h is misplaced. On the left-hand side always: Since the exact solution is not available, an approximate reference solution is computed by using finite elements of higher order. Is the real braesa overestimated or underestimated if merely the error with respect to the reference solution is evaluated?


The term c f-f h that arises from the data oscillation can even be added by the Pythagorean rule instead of the triangle inequality; see Ainsworth cited below. Explicit error bounds in a conforming finite element method. The a posteriori estimator in Theorem 9. It is efficient since the error of the mixed method is not dominant; see Theorem 5. The converse is required if an efficient estimator for the Raviart-Thomas element finie wanted.

For this purpose the construction via piecewise quadratic elements by Ainsworth proceeds in a quite different way. A posteriori error estimation for lowest order Raviart Thomas mixed finite elements.

There is the question: Why are tools from the theory of a posteriori estimates used for its proof? The reason is that the theorem is true only modulo data oscillation, and the latter has been introduced braes understood in the framework of a posteriori estimates.

There is another fact of a similar type. The proof of the lower bound fiinite.

It follows elmeents P 4 elements yield a solution with an error that is smaller than the error for P 1 elements multiplied by a factor smaller than 1, provided that we disregard terms arising from data oscillation. We cannot do it without this addition, since it is easy to construct a right-hand side of the elliptic equation such that the finite element solution with P 4 elements is contained in the subset of P 1 elements. Obviously, the distance to the P 4 solution does not reflect the distance to the true solution in this case.

The use of techniques from fnite posteriori estimates for the a priori analysis of plates has a different reason.

For a first convergence proof of The Gauss-Seidel method see: ZAMM 9, Usually the boundary integral in 3. The constant in Korn’s inequality depends on the shape of the domain if Neumann boundary conditions are eements on a part of the domain.

An Example is the cantilever beam Fig. Note that rot v is also large. The inf-sup condition for the Stokes problem implies Korn’s inequality.

The counterexample of a domain with a cusp shows that there is no implication in the converse direction. An index h is missing in the third term. Verifications of the plate models have been performed by using the theorem of Prager and Synge p.

It was done by Morgenstern elekents for the Kirchhoff plate and by Braess, Sauter, and Schwab [] for both plate models. While the studies above refer to the displacement model, Alessandrini et al [] investigated mixed methods for the Mindlin-Reissner plate. Although not explicitly stated, the elments show that Hypothesis H2 makes the plates stiffer than they are.

The lack of the quadratic term was often partially compensated by shear correction factors. Shear correction factors are disregarded in the text. Derivation and justification of plate models by variational methods.
