Abstract

Attractive new possibilities of quality control and improvement of the results can be achieved by using higher order shape functions in finite element computations. During the last few years a systematic approach to a new generation of finite element software has been developed allowing the polynomial degree of the shape functions to be varied freely over the mesh. After a discussion of the basic ideas it is shown in numerical examples how a balanced mesh construction and distribution of the polynomial degree yield robustness and superior accuracy of the new method.
