Bordas, Sundararajan Natarajan, “A MINI element over star convex polytopes” ABSTRACT In this paper, we extend the concept of MINI element over triangles to star convex arbitrary polytopes. This is achieved by employing the volume averaged nodal…

A MINI element over star convex polytopes

Finite Elements in Analysis and Design Accepted Manuscript. Amrita Francis, Alejandro Ortiz-Bernardin, Stéphane P. A. Bordas, Sundararajan Natarajan. Abstract In this paper, we extend the concept of MINI element over triangles to star convex arbitrary polytopes. This is achieved by employing the volume averaged nodal projection (VANP) method over polytopes in combination with the strain…
