  • Abstract

This paper derives a higher order hybrid stress finite element method on quadrilateral meshes for linear plane elasticity problems. The method employs continuous piecewise bi-quadratic functions in local coordinates to approximate the displacement vector and a piecewise-independent 15-parameter mode to approximate the stress tensor. Error estimation shows that the method is free from Poisson-locking and has second-order accuracy in the energy norm. Numerical experiments confirm the theoretical results.
