Prathap, Gangan (1997) Field-consistency approach to plate elements. Structural Engineering and Mechanics, 5 (6). pp. 853-865. ISSN 1225-4568Full text not available from this repository.
The design of robust plate and shell elements has been a very challenging area for several decades. The main difficulty has been the shear locking phenomenon in plate elements and the combined shear and membrane locking phenomena in the shell elements. Among the various artifices or devices which are used to develop elements free of these problems is the field-consistency approach. In this paper this approach is reviewed. It turns out that not only Mindlin-type elements but also elements based on higher-order theories could be developed using the technique.
