    The first two of the quartet, completeness, continuity, consistency and correctness conditions, required for the13; development of robust displacement based finite elements are well understood as far as the anisoparametric elements13; are concerned.When such elements are formulated (primarily for accuracy due to their improved consistent load and mass capabilities) by incorporating transverse shear deformation effect, it becomes necessary to study the next13; two of the quartet (field) consistency and (variational) correctness aspects and to explore further their susceptibility for spurious effects such as locking,stress oscillations etc. Such a study on a typical anisoparametric13; element formulation is presented in this paper.
