Inf-sup stable nonconforming finite elements of higher order on quadrilaterals and hexahedra

Gunar Matthies — 2007

ESAIM: Mathematical Modelling and Numerical Analysis

We present families of scalar nonconforming finite elements of arbitrary order r 1 with optimal approximation properties on quadrilaterals and hexahedra. Their vector-valued versions together with a discontinuous pressure approximation of order r - 1 form inf-sup stable finite element pairs of order for the Stokes problem. The well-known elements by Rannacher and Turek are recovered in the case . A numerical comparison between conforming and nonconforming discretisations will be given. Since higher order...

A unified convergence analysis for local projection stabilisations applied to the Oseen problem

Gunar MatthiesPiotr SkrzypaczLutz Tobiska — 2007

ESAIM: Mathematical Modelling and Numerical Analysis

The discretisation of the Oseen problem by finite element methods may suffer in general from two shortcomings. First, the discrete inf-sup (Babuška-Brezzi) condition can be violated. Second, spurious oscillations occur due to the dominating convection. One way to overcome both difficulties is the use of local projection techniques. Studying the local projection method in an abstract setting, we show that the fulfilment of a local inf-sup condition between approximation and projection spaces...
