Abstract

Elements based purely on completeness and continuity requirements perform erroneously in a certain class of problems. These are called locking situations. Locking has been eliminated by many techniques. We review the field consistency paradigm using a function space model and propose a method to identify field-inconsistent spaces for projections that show locking behavior. The case of the Timoshenko beam serves as an illustrative example.
